I kid you not, planning for the house boleh buat gaduh ok. Hoosband made me draw up plans of plans of plans of plans. Ok I kid. Err. Not really.
I hated the piece of floor plan that came from HDeeBee. We plan to hack a wall and just make the kitchen a more logical place to be in. But just putting correction tape on that wall doesn’t cut it for me. So I got tracing paper and traced out the floor plan. My BFF, Li, is an interior designer and she drew the planning things onto tracing paper. Inspired by her. Then he made me draw in all the stuff we planned to have. 😐
Also made another super rough sketch of how I intend to organize my kitchen. Like… Where I want the spices to be. Where the pots and pans should be. Where the pantry will be. Where should the plates be stored. I guess it helps in telling the id what we want.
Found a couple of major defects like ponding in the common toilet and that thing to hang clothes won’t come down.
And then came the huge bummer. Changing the kitchen entrance would make it smaller. Haiyahhhhhh. Ok lor. Bo pian. Back to planning again.
Checked out ikea and other places, stumbled onto heritage/kitchen at imm and went back to planning using the ikea kitchen planner. One of the designers at heritage/kitchen was kind enough to show us the features they have. Hoosband and I were nearly drooling. Integrated kitchen modular systems and the most gorgeous colour combi ever. Definitely the dream kitchen for us.
With the dream kitchen in mind, I went back to the ikea kitchen planner. I made quite a few designs before this but that was before we saw all these problems.
One of the earlier designs. Getting a feel of the planner. Measurement all agak2. But doing this is time-consuming and addictive. You want to keep trying and doing everything until you somehow get a design you like. Feeling mcm id je. 😁 Most importantly, you get to visualize the kitchen that you have been dreaming of.
Meeting the id later today to decide on colours and see what he’s come up with…
