The homeowner aka jetsetter is currently working overseas while we managed the home reno here locally. I guess it's lots of mutual trust between us and jetsetter to get the whole reno through. It was really quite awesome that jetsetter was very organised when it came to timing and delivery of home items that needs to be installed while juggling everything from abroad. And when there were critical times which needed jetsetter to be around, it happened.
It's a relatively new resale flat when we took over to start the home reno. We redid the kitchen, both bathrooms, hacked down the bedroom wall and converted it to an open study and created more storage for the dining cum bar counter area.
Behind the bar counter is a row of full height storage for the coffee machine, wine glasses, cups and other dry items. Due to a busy and tight schedule, jetsetter prefers to have a simple meal by the counter instead of the usual sit down dinner dining table. The bar counter acts as a casual gathering place for jetsetter and friends during a once in a blue moon drinking session.
And the bar counter can be moved to the opposite wall so that jetsetter can eat and watch telly at the same time. My bet is that even if jetsetter do gets a dining table in future, the bar counter can be tucked permanently at the opposite wall facing the telly.

The kitchen is brightened up with an aquamarine glass backsplash that is easy to clean and maintain. The top cabinets are finished in white laminate while the bottom is a medium earthy brown laminate, topped with white solid surface. The hanging racks are purchased overseas and mounted under the top cabinet instead of the glass backsplash to avoid cracks.

With the option of opening up and closing, the study is also the guest room. Using bifold doors, the study can be opened up fully while letting daylight streaming into the corridor spaces. A bookshelf was customised to house books and lifestyle accessories.
both bathrooms went through a major overhaul of retiling, plumbing and electrical works. All the bathroom accessories, WC and sinks are new.

That's all for the house tour.
Hope everyone have a nice long weekend ahead!
