See how your dream home can look like

The New Paper - - LIFESTYLE - NUR SYAHINDAH ISHAK

Fol­low­ing the suc­cess of last year’s Gain City BTO Group Buy event and Gain City’s Big Week­ends held in July, the lo­cal con­sumer elec­tron­ics re­tailer is giv­ing home own­ers more op­por­tu­ni­ties to see how their dream home can look like at its inau­gu­ral Homes Larger Than Life event.

It was held last week­end and again to­mor­row and on Sun­day, from noon till 8pm at Gain City Mega­s­tore@Sungei Kadut.

Mr Sau Tan, Gain City’s se­nior dig­i­tal mar­ket­ing ex­ec­u­tive, told The New Pa­per: “Last week­end, more than 500 cou­ples came to the event. They were sur­prised and got more than they ex­pected.”

Ac­cord­ing to Mr Tan, be­sides en­joy­ing the widest range of home elec­tron­ics, mat­tresses and fur­ni­ture un­der one roof, shop­pers had di­rect ac­cess to and free con­sul­ta­tions with some of the top in­te­rior de­sign firms in Sin­ga­pore, in­clud­ing the likes of Rezt & Re­lax.

The Ex­pe­ri­ence Cen­tre, one of the main at­trac­tions of Homes Larger Than Life, fea­tures fur­nished mock-ups of three-, four- and five-room Build-To-Or­der flats as well as a three-bed­der North Park Res­i­dences con­do­minium unit that have been scaled and made to look ex­actly like the real thing.

Cus­tomers can in­spect home ap­pli­ances and feel fur­ni­ture, and get a close-up look at dif­fer­ent types of tile de­signs, light­ing and ren­o­va­tion ma­te­ri­als.

Mr Tan said: “The idea of the Ex­pe­ri­ence Cen­tre is to give new home own­ers a more holis­tic ap­proach to ren­o­vat­ing their new home.”

Set up within the Ex­pe­ri­ence Cen­tre is the Sonos Cen­tre, where one can ex­plore and wit­ness how quick and easy it is to set up a wire­less home sound sys­tem.

Gain City has also com­pleted ren­o­vat­ing a re­sale flat as part of the Big Ren­o­va­tion Project, which gives home own­ers an in­side look at the ren­o­va­tion jour­neys of three home makeovers from start to fin­ish.

This week­end’s Homes Larger Than Life will also boast some culi­nary star power, as Zan­der Ng, win­ner of re­al­ity TV cook­ing com­pe­ti­tion MasterChef Sin­ga­pore, and run­ner-up Genevieve Lee will par­tic­i­pate in a cook-out with prod­ucts from Ital­ian brand Aris­ton.

Ad­di­tion­ally, ex­clu­sive pro­mo­tions on new fur­ni­ture, home ap­pli­ances, elec­tron­ics and life­style prod­ucts will be up for grabs.

Some at­trac­tive deals in­clude a $250 Gain City voucher with ev­ery $3,000 charged to Pay Small, an in­stal­ment pay­ment plan by Amer­i­can Ex­press, as well as a $200 Gain City voucher along with one month of free elec­tric­ity with ev­ery pur­chase of an air-con­di­tioner and a new sign-up with home elec­tric­ity provider iSwitch.

In­ter­ested home own­ers can regis­ter for Homes Larger Than Life via gaincity.com/big­week­ends.

Free shut­tle bus ser­vices to and from Gain City Mega­s­tore from Choa Chu Kang and Yew Tee MRT sta­tions will be avi­l­able.
