ID or Contractor... Why Not These Firms That are Both?

Having trouble deciding between hiring a contractor and an interior designer? Save yourself the headache, and work with a contractor-ID instead.

Call them the 'middle ground' between the two: Like contractors, these firms often focus on executing ideas and delivering quality workmanship; but if needed, contractor-IDs are also capable of offering project management and design services (e.g. 3D drawings and spatial planning) like design-centric IDs.

Put simply, if you already have a clear idea of what your dream home will look like, but lack the time to personally manage your project – a contractor-ID might just be the perfect fit for your renovation needs.

Get in touch with one now! Or keep scrolling to take a look at our favourite spaces done up by these all-in-one firms:


1. With its warm wooden grains and neutral shades, this simple, homely abode puts us right at ease! Smartly planned carpentry help to maximise every inch of this welcoming apartment, from the bedroom's sliding wardrobe door/TV console to a multi-purpose bunk bed that comes with its own study desk.

2. Talk about clashing elements! Smooth curves and boxy silhouettes meet in this comfy abode, which uses subdued shades to downplay the contrast. But things don’t stop there: subtle hints of Eastern and Western influences are used to amazing effect here. For instance, simple, MUJI-style built ins are matched with European wall mouldings and shaker-style cabinets for a thematic twist.

Interior Designer: Letz Interior


3. Sometimes, all you need are the essentials plus a clear vision. Aside from sticking to boxy shapes and warm wood finishes, this 4-room HDB flat also features plenty of similar-looking furniture and accessories that complete its refreshingly simple look. The result? Reduced renovation costs, without compromising on style.

4. Skimming the line between stark minimalism and opulence, the all-white palette used here is a genius trick that makes this HDB flat appear larger! Alongside minimal décor, glossy layers further accentuate the feeling of openness. As a finishing touch, French style walls (one of which actually conceals the bomb shelter door) and marbled finishes were included to create a clean, modern look with a touch old-world class.

5. Save for the hints of colour, this monochromatic HDB flat is a minimalist’s dream. Walls along the kitchen and study room were hacked away to make way for a lofty, open layout that brings with it a ton of sunlight. Along with clean-cut built-ins and striking finishes (namely that insta-worthy marble feature wall), the result is a tranquil yet upscale abode perfect for escaping in.

Interior Designer: Colourbox Interior


6. Pops of blue and navy match surprisingly well with this home’s warm industrial décor, adding a pinch of lightheartedness. Smart, functional ideas abound too; for instance, the original study room wall was hacked to form an open-plan dining space and smaller, glass-enclosed room for the homeowner’s pets. The master bedroom is similarly packed with storage space – think platform cabinets, and even a partition piece that doubles as a vanity and study table.

Interior Designer: Butler Interior


7. While all of us may have different ideas of what a 'cosy' space is, we can all probably agree that this home – with its unpretentious décor and functional built-ins - nails the vibe perfectly. Using a palette of medium-toned woods and neutrals, carpentry is kept to simple shapes for a classic look. And it doesn’t skimp on storage either - every inch of usable space is maximized, from the multi-purpose partition wall to platform cubbies for a practical home that’s built to last.

8. Working on a timeless colour combination, this home brings an edgy slant with its cubic shapes and clean-cut detailing. Polished surfaces such as the pearlescent backsplash and brushed metal console wall bring a hint of shine, keeping things from looking flat. Meanwhile, the glass-encased study provides a visual change from the otherwise stark, monochromatic theme.
