Ms. Ang, Punggol.
My ID was Benjamin Teo. The chemistry with him was very good and it was evident as there were no hiccups or delays. In fact, he managed to handover the project to me earlier. I collected my keys in December, wanted to complete it before CNY, initially, he told me the timeline would be tight but he managed to achieve that. He's very resourceful, doesn't over promise and practical. Why I chose to contact him was because he advertised himself as a one stop shop which is very true. He even sourced the furniture for my place so that it goes according to the theme we decided on. He was so detailed that he even sourced for the pillow on my sofa. That just shows how professional he was and I had a move-in condition place after the renovation was completed The 3D plan he produced was almost what I envisioned. Compared to what my friends had to go through with their IDs during the design phase, I count myself lucky. Renovation completed in: February 2016. Cost of renovation: $60,000.
I felt that Mr. Shopper Studio and my ID Ben were different compared to the other IDs that I met with. An example would be how detailed the quotation he sent me. I gave him my requirements like the budget and theme I liked then he produced a personalized moodboard based on that. This allowed me to visualize the theme and what I would be paying for in my quotation. The other IDs will only give a generic quote. Also, the way he presented himself in a creative way gave me some reassurances that I would not end up with some generic designs for my home. No major hiccups during the renovation and everything went smoothly as I think I gave him ample lead time. I liked that he had his own style and a lot of ideas to share which I personally feel will be useful for homeowners who might have some general and not specific ideas in mind.

Their furnishing services made our renovation experience hassle-free. We gave Ben our budget and he would do the budget allocation and sourcing of furniture for us to choose from. That was really helpful as we lack the design expertise and needed someone to help us to choose furniture that would complement the theme nicely. It is definitely a good service. At the start, Ben gave us a survey to do so that he could determine our design preferences before he began the furniture selection process. When it came time for furniture selection, he would give us a choice among – for example – ten different sofas from various stores and ask us to pick one that we like. Interestingly, no matter which design we picked, it would complement the overall design of the home. Ben is very committed. He would make sure to always keep us updated about the renovation progress via the group chat that we were in. There was also once that he stayed until about 4am at night to sort out some painting issues that had cropped up. By the next morning, everything was settled. He was also very patient with us. There were some things which we did not like in the original 3D drawings so he had to make amendments a couple of times. We felt that he was very passionate about our project. It was as though the renovations were being done for his own home. Renovation completed in: June 2016 Cost of renovation: $60,000 Cost of furnishing and appliances: $40,000

We met up with 5 - 10 designers and contractors, and chose Mr Shopper not just for their designs, but also because they are a one stop service - they also helped us choose our furniture to match our home's theme. In the initial stages, we didn't have much concept of what we wanted, just a rough idea. We told them what we wanted and they planned the whole thing, and gave us some choices to choose from. Their ability to propose concepts and ideas to us really stood out among the others we met. We trusted them with making the decisions - they were able to plan and work within our budget, and made sure we were alright with the choices they made. Renovation completed in: October 2016 Cost of renovation: $50,000

While I was researching on interior designers, I noticed Mr Shopper Studio also sourced and shopped for home furnishings on behalf of the homeowners, and that caught my attention. I told Ben at our first meeting on the requirements and he came out with a good design proposal. I checked with a friend of mine, who happened to be an interior designer too, on the prices Ben quoted and she finds it reasonable judging from the amount of work they had to do. Ben was given a budget and he got to work on designing our home and sourcing for the right decor and furnishings to fit the theme. He would take a picture of the item he intends to purchase and seek my approval before purchasing the item. I like how Ben made it a point to get me involved in the decision-making process and he’s a meticulous person. He really covered all grounds, right down to the forks and spoons used! The renovation was very smooth and fuss-free since Ben helped with most of the purchasing and styling. I will definitely recommend to anyone who’s looking for a pain-free renovation.
