Contemporary HDB Designs To Be Inspired!
Are you looking for HDB renovation designers or contractors to renovate, redesign and remodel your HDB?
How much should you have for your renovation budget? No set figure will work for everyone, and there are many other factors you need to consider. For example, are you focusing on renovating the whole HDB or a particular area, such as only the living room, bedroom, toilet, kitchen, or balcony? Will the unit be in a vacant status or occupied?
Renovation costs will also differ widely depending on whether you are going through just minor appearance updates or a full structural renovation. Minor appearance updates include renovation works like the painting of walls or updating fittings, carpentry works, lightings, window furnishings, overlaying flooring, etc. Structural renovation involves renovation works such as hacking walls or flooring, rearranging plumbing and wiring, etc.
