Reviewed by Jenny Tan・Submitted 1 May 2020・Project completed Mar 2020・Designer Dorothy Seah
We engaged the services of Design Story after shortlisting and meeting at least 10 IDs. We chose our ID Dorothy Seah as she came across as punctual, genuine, meticulous and experienced. Her quote was slightly above average, but was reasonable given her good services. Initially, we did not want to do a “full” renovation for our resale unit, but with her advice on the pros/cons, and drawbacks, we embarked on a full renovation of 2 toilets, 1 kitchen, 1 study area and wardrobes for 2 bedrooms. She provided good recommendations based on our criteria of being functional, easy-to-clean and going with neutral tones. She also took much time to answer many of my pre-reno questions, even before our engagement, which I greatly appreciate. We are very thankful to have chosen Dorothy. Her project management skills were superb — she carefully planned out our renovation schedule, and followed-up closely with us on outstanding decisions. She planned ahead and asked us for our decisions on many minute details way in advance, this made our actual reno execution part very seamless. Given there are so many decisions to be made and so many moving parts, I would say most works went smoothly as planned (hmm, based on many reno horror stories I’ve heard, this was rare)! She completed our renovation project about 1 week before the projected completion date. Workmanship by the tilers and carpenters are pretty decent. Post-renovation touch-ups were also promptly done. All in all, we are very pleased to have hired Dorothy as our ID, and we would highly recommend her to our friends and family.

We started looking for an ID through Qanvast during circuit breaker in April 2020 and got to know about Design Story. Frank was prompt and very quickly contacted us and arranged for a first video call to understand our requirements and needs. He continues to follow up, made changes to his already great design based on our needs and gave professional advice and suggestions but was never pushy. We eventually went with Design Story as we could resonate with Frank and his designs. Even after signing up with him, he was very receptive to our ever growing requests and changes and fulfilled them with no complaints. The renovation process was also a breeze with daily updates and photos from Raymond. Design Story has their own in house capentry factory which they take huge pride in with the quality of the cabinets and feature walls. Thank you Frank and Raymond for all the hard work put in to transform our place!

Frank was very hands-on and on top of things throughout the renovation process. He was very responsible, went the extra mile to make things work and gave regular updates on the progress, particularly during key milestones. The overall workmanship quality was good, executed with attention to details, especially for the wet areas (bathrooms, kitchen) and living and bedroom cabinets. Good suggestions were also given on choice of colours, materials and space planning.

We had a good experience working with Ryan in renovating our place. He understood our needs and concern and proposed great ideas to maximise storage space. Ryan was very responsive to our queries as well. We were glad we had Ryan guiding us along as this was our first home. He provided us tips and cost saving options.
