So enough talk and let the photos do the talking.

The shoe cabinet has top and bottom flushed lights and integrated with a storage seating bench.
Usually we will design for a lourve panel door shoe cabinet for ventilation, however to save costs, a solid door panel is another option. So how to solve the ventilation problem?

It's a cupboard for the washer and dryer.
To save space and not having to let the cupboard doors open all the time when using the washer, the contractor has proposed for a sliding door.
(2) here's how it looks on the insides with tracks for the doors to slide inwards.
(3) both sides of the doors are slided inwards so the corridor space is kept free when the owner wants to leave the washer open.
Interested? You can read more about the Kompacplus panels here.
The slim but sturdy Kompacplus top which looks like wood yet creates a sleek countertop edge profile.
How it works:

now that the screeding and waterproofing works are completed, it's time for tiling works! Can wait to see the bathrooms once it's done because we have chosen a super uber looking tile for the common bath.
Meanwhile we are still waiting for HDB's approval for the hacking of walls...slight hiccup here. Apparently the original HDB drawing was wrong and did not reflect the true size of the column in the store room (it was like so short in the drawing but in actual fact it's bloody long! triple the length!!!) and missing an RC stiffener which is situated in the middle of the new proposed entrance foyer. So we have to go back to the drawing board again to think of ways to solve the long column.

Having 3 children and children's partner means every inch of the space has to be fully utilised and maximised. hmm. also means we work doubly hard by squeezing every inch of area for them.
The en-suite idea brings extra space and time for the whole family to enjoy, instead of on a morning 3 children battling to use the only common bathroom upstairs, the ratio is 2:1 instead of 3:1. The en-suite was designed to be minimal and big enough to fit in a WC, sink and a shower. The user only has to roll out of bed on a morning and head straight into the en-suite without having to queue.
And when the children are old enough to move out, it makes a terrific rental room because it's an en-suite like a studio apartment on its own. Plus it's super near to the main entrance, leaving enough privacy for the family to enjoy their own individual rooms upstairs.
