we have come to the tail end of our renovation at Compassvale Drive and fast approaching the Lunar Ghost Month. Although the flat is in ready condition to move in, however the furniture and curtains will not be able to arrive before the Ghost month, so our new couple has decided to shift in after the Ghost Month is over.
So till then here are the final photos of this place for everyone to enjoy.
Have a great weekend ahead!

The common bathroom features a colourful pattern wall tile that anchors the WC and shower area. Due to the small tight space, there wasn't enough room to separate the shower from the WC, hence we only added a piece of glass between the shower and basin. That way at least we can shield the bathroom cabinets from the shower spray.
Instead of doing our usual special wall for the shower items, this time round we did a half wall ledge which stretches across the entire wall. This makes it easy to place shampoos, conditioners and shower foam at the wet area. And because it continues all the way to the vanity area, it also provides an extra shelving area to place potted plants or lifestyle accessories as it's kept away from the tap. So most of the time, this ledge will remain dry.

Besides carpentry, we are adding fixed glass windows at half height to the study room for visual connectivity between the study and living areas. ie living and kitchen. This also makes the room feels abit more spacious and more daylight penetrating through the areas. Glass always has this light and bright effect as compared to a solid wall which might be imposing to a small flat.
That being said, solid walls are good to have too if you need storage areas! Cos that's where you need to bank all your cupboards...all along whatever wall space you have.
my next post will be back to the mirror vanity again!
