This is the kitchen, below. It was actually quite a nice homely kitchen before we threw out all the stuffs. It has a window that looks out to a lovely garden where some families hang their clothes and the garden has various trees, including a coconut tree which made it have a kampung feel to the place. But the floor tiles and of course, the horrible green interior have to go.
Again, we white-washed the walls. Some simple retiling over the existing tiles, blended in well with the walls, washing machine and kitchen utensils. We maintained the tiles at the bottom of the kitchen top for some colour - and to save costs.... There is also an additional tap for filtered water at the sink (not visible from this photo below) for drinking.
The bedrooms are small and cramped. So, the white-wash, white curtains and white furniture added that feel of space.
Above, before and below after the room's transformation. Surprisingly, we still managed to fill it up with a 4 x 2 feet study table with enough room for a chair. There is even a 3 foot wardrobe at the foot of the bed.
Below is the former dining area which we have managed to box-up into a room again. Despite being the smallest room, it has 2 windows unlike the other 2 rooms.
This is no luxury condominium. I think the expectation is right, if we call this a low cost flat. The aim is to make the interior comfortable. Coupled with the good location, added security and safety, these will surely out-weigh the bad points.
