You do basic first:
- Flooring (if HDB did not give)
- Kitchen -> depends on how much cupboards you want, around 4-6k inclusive of sink, hood, hob
- Electrical appliances (necessities -> fridge, washing machine, water heater, TV, Aircon), think if buy cheap/2nd hand total will be around 2.5k without aircon, 4-5k with aircon
- furniture (sofa, dining table, bed) -> my mattress is on the floor type so can save on bedframe, total around 3-5k if you dont choose those very exp type of mattress
For electrical appliances rather easy to get interest free installment, either buy at courts or use credit card to get zero interest installment. Even small shops with good prices for electrical stuff like Goh A.h Bee also have tie with credit cards for installment.
Mattress also rather easy now. got alot of promo. I prefer Seahorse brand cos it's cheap and nice to sleep in. less than 1k for a king size mattress.
Flooring & kitchen is the tougher part. If flooring you get laminate from ikea (comes with 25yr warranty), they got in house installment plan. that day i went to see, seems affordable & my husband liked one of the colours. We intend to put on wall as feature wall instead
Kitchen will depend on the contractor willing to let you slowly pay or not. Or get reno loan. But reno loan not worth it cos of the interest.
So maybe the main bulk is pay for the kitchen first, then rest of the items can get slowly or by installment.
dont forget, own house will have many other expenses (internet, utilities, conservancy charges, groceries, etc etc). So must plan carefully.
But honestly, if you set a realistic amt for reno & all other stuff, start looking around & budget for individual stuff, you can definitely meet budget. I started planning for the reno & stuff 2yrs before i got my keys. got quotation, asked around, looked around, discussed with husband about expectations & what we can manage, etc. Helped to build our relationship at the same time So both of us are very happy with our house now Feel happy to be here and feel happy to come home after work
Empty vessels make the most noise
for bed, i dont think our room is big enough for a king size, if not i dont mind hehe.. somemore my mum said the bed we sleeping now got 'an chuan' one, must bring over -.-|| nvm lahh, can save the bed part haha...
that's y i hope my house dont come so early.. i dont mind some delay haha.. HDB gave 2 dates, 2011 sep is date of completion then 2013 Jan is dont know what date.. also dont know which date is the one to collect keys.. hope is 2013..
Apollo, like that is sep 2011 most likely will get keys. If you dont want so fast, can actually call them up to change to later date when the appt letter comes that's what some of my neighbours did.
12k actually is workable. Basics first. Next time anything additional can add on.
