After visiting many shops along Jalan Besar, we decided to buy our kitchen and bathroom sanitary fittings from Summer Hardware Trading. This is because we were very impressed by the great service and reasonable prices here.
What is Summer Hardware Trading?
Summer Hardware Trading sells a variety of bathroom and kitchen fittings such as taps, mixers, shower heads, basins, toilet bowls, heater, etc. It is located at 255 Jalan Besar. It mainly carries items by the local sanitary brand OttO. This store space was previously occupied by Hupfarri Bathroom and Kitchen Gallery.
Compared to the other shops in Jalan Besar, we felt that Summer Hardware had a better store interior design. The products were presented neatly with ample space, instead of being crammed together like in other shops. This made it a lot easier for us to browse through the myriad of products. The showroom was also quite spacious, which made it easy for us to walk around.
Wonderful Service and Reasonable Prices
However, we were most impressed by the great service here. We were served by Ling, a friendly lady who was very helpful and knowledgeable. She answered all our questions patiently, and was not pushy at all. Even after we told her that we wanted to leave the shop and think about it first, her friendly attitude did not change. This was in stark contrast to the indifferent or rude staff we had encountered in other shops.
In addition, we found that Summer Hardware had one of the best prices compared with other shops in Jalan Besar. Therefore, we decided to return to the shop to make our purchases.
“Joven JH 25” Storage Water Heater
One of the items we bought was the Joven JH 25 ($275) storage heater. We chose the Joven brand because according to various online reviews and forums, it is one of the more reliable brands for water heaters. We decided to buy the 25 liter heater because we wanted to ensure that the two of us would have sufficient warm water when bathing.
“Baron WC 888” Toilet Bowl
For our toilet bowl, we went with the Baron WC 888 ($380), which is probably the most popular toilet bowl on the renovation forum Renotalk.com. This is because it has an elegant one-piece design where the cistern is connected to the toilet bowl. The price is very affordable too. It is fitted with the Geberit flushing mechanism, which is supposed to be a very reliable and powerful flushing system.
“Otto 343-03” Kitchen Sink Tap
After browsing through the myriad of sink taps, we decided to buy the Otto 343-03 ($144) tap for our kitchen sink because of its pretty sleek design.
We are glad that we discovered Summer Hardware Trading among all the sanitary ware shops in Jalan Besar. We had the best shopping experience here! Ling was a great staff who provided wonderful service. In addition, the prices were also extremely reasonable. We highly recommend this shop for new homeowners in Singapore. (There is also another showroom in Toa Payoh, but we did not visit that branch)
