Making a four- room HDB functional for less than $8,000

I just moved into our 4- room resale HDB flat, and we made it functional in less than $8,000!

Notice, I didn’t use the word renovate as we didn’t hire people for renovation works. As such, let’s use the term functional here.

Initial Condition of the Home

Before we moved in, the home came with the following:

  • In- tact flooring tiles
  • Adequate power points
  • Available fibre optic point and television point
  • Lighting switch is still working (though many bulbs were blown)
  • Home came with concealed ceiling (which is bad for modification – so a decision not to rewire or change anything about the lighting except for the bulbs)
  • Kitchen cabinet is still usable
  • Kitchen Stove is still usable
  • Paint still looks okay
  • Windows and window grilles are in- tact
  • Curtain rails are available
  • Functional Sink/ taps/ drains
  • Working Air- Conditioner
  • Functional interior doors and exterior door/ gate
