yes. The type of design which was chosen is done by previous owner who booked and gave up at the last min due to many reason. Actually at HDB hub they did display the tiles for living room and bedrooms. For my area, it's

Kitchen & Bathroom - ceramic tiles
Living/Dining floor : polished porcelain tiles with laminated PVC skirting
Bedrooms floor : resilient (vinyl) strip flooring with laminated PVC skirting

but since my previous owner chosen OK, which is Open Kitchen Concept without Flooring, I am appealing with the department for floor furnishing because the house will be only available after 2 years or more.
thanks for the info.. mine didn't mention OK.. just FF.. BUT...when I see floor plan.. for kitchen. half of it is dotted line.. half of it is continuous line.. does it make it a kitchen with partitioning wall?

mine also came with floor finishes... i googled up and down to see what kind of finishes my BTO offered during their launch... different projects offer diff kind of floorings...whats I find funny bout mine is that they use porcelain for living room but they finish off with wooden timber skirtings...
Cool.. I will just try to google also... cant imagine how all these floors look like.. hehe porcelain sounds fragile

Did the officer tell you anything when u book your unit? My floor plan also dotted lines and officer told us it's open kitchen concept

FF - Kitchen with partition walls and floor funishing
OF - Open Kitchen Concept with floor funishing
OK - Open Kitchen Concept with no flooring.

Maybe you can give a call to HDB to double check with them cos once you provide your I/C no. to them, they will know all the details.

vinyl is good. Laminated is the worse I guess. A bit of water the whole floor swell up already.

We like Open Kitchen Concept too cos we plan to built a tall cupboard and put the oven in the middle, the rest of the space will be free to join the living room so that we can put the dinning table which can also be converted to study area for the kids.

Found this website which has lots of renovation designs.

https://qanvast.com/sg/interior-design-singapore

Same status as yours, We have recieved your SHG/AHG application. I also wonder how soon they will let us know the outcome and amount. Yes, first timer above 8.5k will not have any grant.

By default for (FF) = your floor (HDB Tiles) is already installed with doors, toilet basin & bowl.

Overlaying Vinyl flooring for 8k for living+3bed room??? this is crazy ex.. even the best product which i've seen so far (Evorich) also cost 5k only.
A simple reno for 4room will cost you at least 20k. Reno loan currently lowest interest bank is CIMB, max reno loan is 30k.

Grant is meant for different application group. First timer, 2nd timer, First + 2nd timer, etc...... with different amount.

I think grant is 12 months salary (total household income) then divide by 12 months again to determine how much grant we can get.

I saw an online quotation for 4 rooms flat using Vinyl around 4 - 4.4k, but not sure whether include living room or not.

My friend is doing the designing for us. Using Qanvast as guidelines to look see the designs only. As I need to make loft bed for my girls to save space, still need to browse through more designs
