Reviewed by Matthew Law・Submitted 6 Nov 2021・Project completed Sep 2021・Designer Ken Fung

Initial thoughts Prior to signing on the dotted line with Ken Fung of Yang's Inspiration Design on December 2020, we went through at least 5 different IDs within one month. Some were good, some were so-so, some were very pushy, but what made us went with Yang's ID was how Ken handled our queries. He knew his stuff well and discussions were always a two-way traffic. Ken never failed to offer his ideas and suggestions during face-to-face discussions and Whatsapp chats, which gave us the confidence in entrusting him with the reno of our home. As we were first time homeowners, we had a lot of questions and uncertainties on how things were supposed to work out. Thankfully, Ken were more than glad to answer our questions and cleared the air for us. More importantly, he was not your typical yes man. He very willingly shared his experience on his past reno projects, and did not shy away in providing constructive criticisms to our otherwise non-functional ideas. This, in our opinion, enabled us to fully utilise every nook and cranny of our home. 3D design & tile selection We requested some changes to our 3D quite a number of times, and Ken delivered every time to our satisfaction, something which we were extremely thankful for. We flip flopped with the design several times, especially that of our full height cabinets, but Ken handled our expectations like a pro. Everything was clearly communicated via WhatsApp; it was only during the final 3D that we had a meeting to firm up our design, select laminates, choose paint colours, etc. Tile selection for our bathrooms was a big deal for us. We went to Soon Bee Huat and Hafary...and were instantly overwhelmed by the huge amount of different designs, brands, origins, etc. Luckily for us, Ken our man was there to calm our nerves. We told him how we wanted our bathrooms to look like and he immediately went into action. Thanks to Ken's time and patience, we managed to finalise five bathroom tiles in less than 3 hours at Soon Bee Huat haha. Hacking, removal & make-good The original condition of our home had false ceilings and wallpapers everywhere but we opted not to retain any of them. Which meant Ken's men had to remove and make good. They did a commendable job in making good of the walls and concrete ceilings after removal. To our pleasant surprise, the ceiling had no marks of the previous false ceiling after painting. Same went to the walls. Additional requests to putty up uneven surfaces on the walls were neatly done as well. Tiling & painting works We overlaid our bathrooms and painted the whole house + door frames + bombshelter. Let's start with the tiling work first. We gave our requirements (tiling pattern, which area to lay which tile, etc.) to Ken and he communicated them to the tiling sifu. But as our requirements were quite complicated (even I felt it was complicated haha), Ken checked if we were available to drop by the site for a face-to-face discussion with the sifu to avoid any misalignments. We were okay as we were staying nearby and working from home that time. True enough, we managed to sort out the details during the short meet up. The sifu was very experienced, as he clearly understood our last-minute requests and executed the works accordingly. Most importantly, his workmanship was good. We checked and there were no hollow tiles, cracked/chipped tiles nor flaky grouts in both the bathrooms. However, some grout lines had small small holes upon closer inspection. We were afraid that water would seep in and cause the holes to grow mushrooms. We highlighted these issues to Ken and he had his sifu rectify the issues to our satisfaction, so thumbs up to both. The painting of whole house was largely uneventful. Paint colours in different rooms were correct, workmanship was good and painting was clean. After the installation of lighting, fixtures and carpentry were completed, Ken arranged a round of touch up on the ceiling, walls and door frames. The good thing was that we did not need to chase him, as he sort of expected that touch ups were required. Ohh yes, the painting of our bombshelter was a last minute addition after the whole house painting, to which Ken was totally okay with it. Plumbing works Ken arranged the plumbing works in our kitchen and both the bathrooms. This was also uneventful, as the plumber went about his job like a preprogrammed expert. He did piping connections, mounting of bathroom fittings (unlimited number of items, by the way), mounting of our off-the-shelf vanity cabinets and installation of storage heater. We discovered minor leakage points on some of the connections and Ken arranged his plumber to come for rectification in a few days' time. Carpentry works This was where most of the interesting stuff happened. Our carpentry was stuck in Malaysia due to their never-ending MCOs, CMCOs, EMCOs and whatnot, which delayed our move-in date. But we did not blame Ken or Yang's ID, as we knew they did their best in expediting the whole thing. Ken was constantly providing updates which helped ease our worries a bit. So we had to move in without any wardrobes and cabinets while waiting for the stuff to arrive. When the goods finally came, Ken arranged his top carpentry sifu to settle the job. We could tell by the way the sifu did his thang...like an how an expert should be. The carcasses and internal shelves of the wardrobes and cabinets arrived first, so the sifu installed them first. At least once those were up, we could finally unload our luggages and hang our clothes. Next came the doors. They were up in no time, thanks to the expertise of the sifu. He made sure the hinges were aligned, the doors were closing properly and everything was okay before calling it a day. Apart from the delay, installation of the carpentry did come with a fair bit of hiccup. Firstly, some of the carpentry sections which arrived were not meant for us, somehow they managed to mix up with carpentry from other job sites. This was fine, as replacements arrived in a few days. But this also meant that the sifu had to wait for the stuff before he could continue. So we had to do multiple rounds of cleaning and mopping every time the sifu completed the job for the day. Another major hiccup was on the pelmet for switches underneath the kitchen top cabinet. The factory did not follow the 2D drawing and had it messed up. Luckily the sifu was experienced enough to resolve the problem on the spot. Which meant their factory had to redo the pelmet, wait for it to arrive and then install it on another day. There were other minor ones like a laminate strip of our TV feature wall which took ages to arrive, drawer locks which we requested but were not there, too big an opening for the microwave oven, and so on. Nonetheless, these were resolved satisfactorily. Service recovery & rectification Defects and errors are bound to happen with any projects, and a big project such as home renovation is no different. What is most important is how the designer handles the rectification. Despite all the hiccups with the carpentry, we have to mention that Ken's service recovery was immaculate and on point. He was really sincere in addressing our concerns and never did he try to sweep the issues under the rug or try to push the blame to someone else. He faced the issues head-on and rectified each and every defect until we were fully satisfied without ever mentioning about the cost associated with it, if any. Other minor touch ups and rectification such as painting, tiling and plumbing works were swiftly done, as mentioned above. In our opinion, service recovery and resolving issues with the renovation were two of the many qualities of Ken which we truly cherished throughout our journey. Yes, we were unhappy with the issues initially, but Ken's assurance and subsequent actions made us feel at ease. We really thank Ken for a job well done! 3 months after renovation & closing remarks We have been staying in our new home for 3 months now and everything is holding up very well. We hope this continues to be the case haha. If touchwood, anything happens, we are sure we can count on Ken to help us with rectification! If you readers want a responsible, responsive, friendly and down-to-earth designer to work on your home, Ken Fung is the guy for you. We highly recommend him to manage and oversee your home renovation! A big thank you to Ken and Yang's ID for designing and renovating our first home. We sure will look for you guys for any future renovation projects!
