Before-InProgress-After : Bathroom 2

This is the bathroom 2 makeover.
Total makeover.


The tiles from developer
There is no separation for wet n dry area
Toilet is extremely small.
 See the door. It went away
See the wash basin, It went relocated
See the tiles, new ones chosen
The wash basin,wc, new ones.

In Progress


New Foldable Door. RM450. Note, this was not in the original quotation.

 3 types of tiles chosen. Got the tiles from Guocera in PJ.
Cant recall the price proportion. But I paid all in RM3k for tiles for 2 bathrooms. This is also after a 10% staff discount.
Note, please see how the tiles were placed. Horizontal and Vertical also makes a difference.

The WC, wash basin and accessories were from Vernon Bath, SS15, introduced by a friend. Again, I paid RM3k+ (less than RM3500) for all bathroom stuff for 2 bathrooms.

The removing of the tiles, water proofing and removal of the old bath items - under ID's quote
The new tiles tiling, under ID's quote
The installation of bathroom stuff - RM900 for both bathrooms (3rd party but managed by ID)

The glass door, I asked my old friend to supply. RM800 all in

The cabinet, part of the ID's quote.

One thing that I didnt like: was the tap. The idea of a tao coming out of the wall was cool. However we chose the wrong one. If a person faces his/her face, his/her head will most likely hit the tap. When you stand at ur wash basin, normally we stand in the middle right.. So middle head down = bang!

This chart here was to show the sales people in Guocera. From here, they will be able to calculate how many boxes of tiles needed. The chart was confusing for me. But i guess the people know best. FYI, it is also good to order extra 1 box of each tile type just in case for spoil, broken, etc. It is not recommended to buy again, same model as different factory batch has different color output. If unlucky, you may get a slight color tone difference.

After I moved in, I realized there was leaking in my utility room. Id came and checked and realized its from bathroom 2. So the plumber was called back. He was gentlemen enough and also admit his mistake. :D ** just imagine, how many would have done this???**

Before-InProgress-After : Room 2


 It was a girl's room. 
So pink, so nice. 
Wished I was little again. 
I never had my own room until I came back from university

This room had no fan. So I bought a KDK from Top 10 in Puchong
*Must Visit this shop if you intent to buy FANS, Panasonic, KDK or Alpha as they are super cheap* Even staff price cannot get this cheap. I compared as Harvey Norman Staff Price cannot get me this rate. The sales guy said they only earn RM2 per fan sold. How True I dont know, but surely they have volume. When I went, they were PACKED.

Location: Top 10, just 2 doors away from Tesco Puchong. Same side.

Air-con, the previous owner left it there. However the ID re-located the air-con hose. Air-con hose used to end up at MasterBedroom toilet. But since I wanted a dry toilet area, (where the air-con hose were), no choice but to relocated the air-con hose to 2nd toilet wet area.
In Progress

They put in the Ikea Wardrobe originall from the Master Bed Room
The shelves were custom made and measured.
The curtain rod was removed and thrown away

Grills needed as Philip is still young.

Grill and Shelves Prices were mentioned earlier. Please scroll to old post.

Electrical: Added some florencent tubes and fan.
Since this is NOT considered a big makeover, no point to contact the plaster ceiling guy. So the ID innovative-ly used wood cover up the ceiling.


This is the Maxtrack Blind which I talked about. The left hand side is closed up with 10% sunlight.
The right hand side, in between the "lines" will be direct sunlight.

This is good as I dont have to turn on the lights for Philip to sleep at night. Natural lights. So he can get used to sleeping without lights.

Location: Maxtrack is located in Jaya 1
Price: RM30 per sq ft with 25% further discount off the total bill

Please click on the photo to see the entire picture.

1) Jundeco: Ikano. http://jundeco.com.my/. I got mine physically as I wanted to see it before purchase

3) Thomas and Cars Duvet from Flea Market, Subang Parade.

The wood ceiling

So do I like this room?
The occupant of this room is super pleased. :D
