D Initial Concept

I engaged D Initial Concept to renovate my 15 year-old condo 3BR + study unit. I wanted a timeless look that could last another 15 years and Ye Min worked very closely with me from ideation to completion. Overall, a great job well then. About the project: Because it is a renovation project of an old unit, there were a few key goals I set out for the designer: 1) The outcome must feel like a new place. 2) Try to minimize work in areas that still look pretty OK and are functional. 3) Good materials, but friendly to the wallet as well! I didn't quite have a clear vision at first but after scouring through Qanvast and other sites for ideas, Ye Min helped visualize my unit and worked with the graphic designer to really come up with a close render of the current outcome. No complaints at all about the entire process. Ye Min did a great job managing the project and sticking to his original planned schedule. Of course, there are a few very minor delays but he was very communicative whenever there are changes and made sure I was informed. One thing I appreciate about D Initial is the quality and workmanship. I requested to see a completed project before I signed with them, and I think that would be a good advice for anyone who's considering an ID. It gave me confidence that the work is of good quality. Budget wise, I spent about 55K on my contract and I do believe it was well worth the money! Many of my friends have commented that the house feels brand new! I think for anyone who's embarking on this exciting home renovation/building journey. Just remember a couple things: don't scrimp on furniture, lighting, laminates! They'll make all the difference!

To me, besides the price, the personality of the Designer is equally important. Akemi comes across as an understanding, patient & capable person, whom I feel comfortable with and easy to communicate. Her designs are impressive, most of which I accepted accordingly. And she willingly & happily make changes to certain aspects of design to suit my preferences & requests during the renovation process. One thing that touched me most was that besides her excellent customer service, she also provided personal service by embarking on a special project all by herself. It took her a few days to painstakingly complete the project with amazing results. The workmanship of carpentry & other work was generally good, and the whole renovation was completed in time. I recommend Akemi to anyone who is looking for a Designer who can produce and deliver results to your satisfaction.

Akime was able to understand our ideas and concept very quickly. She also gave good suggestions which we implemented into our home design. We had a budget and she managed it. We were living overseas and didn't have much time to over see the renovation 100% we trusted most of the work with akime and she delivered her work timely and up to our expectations. Communication with her was easy and efficient. Overall we are pleased with the renovation.

We are very glad to have met Eva as our ID. She had been very patience and accomodating throughout the service period. Our case was abit exceptional as the TOP date was delayed and Eva had gladly serviced us for 1.5 years and throughout the period she had redesigned the whole house for more than 3 times to meet our changes needs. As long as you demand for something, she will try her best to deliver. The workmanship and quality of work are good. What impressed me the most is the after renovation service. She still responses promptly to our requests whenever we contacted her. I highly recommended D'Initial, Eva for her great service and good design.
