When my husband and I first started looking at houses, we decided we wanted something that was move in ready. After seeing the prices of these houses, we had a long talk. We could either deplete our savings and have a huge mortgage payment every month, or we could buy a fixer upper at a much lower rate and have fun fixing it up together. We found a great home with a huge yard, and we knew it was ours. The first thing I did was a search for vinyl flooring in Singapore as soon as the papers were signed.
While my husband took care of the immediate electrical and plumbing needs, I started looking at floors. I knew that we would need to put new flooring down in each room. Each floor had wood floors down that had a lot of splinters in it. I knew I did not want to go with wood on the floors for a few reasons. The first is because of the price, but the second is because it would be a lot easier to put down vinyl flooring because of the way that it is designed.
I chose to go with a floating vinyl floor because it just means putting the pieces together without having to pick up the entire old floor or having to put an adhesive down on the existing floor. It is basically just sticking the pieces together and letting them lock into one another. I saw pictures that I really liked, and I found a site on the web that explained in detail how to put it together. We were able to save a bundle just on the flooring costs alone, and we discovered that the house became a home a lot faster because of all the care and love that we put into it together.
