My wife and i met up with 5 ID firms in the beginning. As we are first-time house owners, we are very particular with choosing an ID. In the end, we shortlisted 2 ID firms and decided to go with Jayce from Forefront Interior. It turned out to be the best decision ever and we are super glad that we made the right choice. 1. Designs that cater to our lifestyle - Jayce would take time and effort to understand more about our lifestyle before providing his ideas to suit our needs. Before our renovation started, Jayce visited our place to show us how could the space be used around the house. He would not push for works which is unnecessary which we really appreciate a lot. We also feedback to Jayce that we would like the house to look spacious. He suggested creative and practical ideas to play with the space in our house. Before the renovation started, our parents commented that our house is small. After the renovation is completed, our parents were surprised and said that our house looks big (all thanks to Jayce's ideas) 2. Designs and ideas - Jayce would provide us dimension of the furniture/ electrical appliances so that we could get the right size items for our house. He also advised the colours of the furniture/ walls/ tiles/ curtains that suit the theme of our house. He pays a lot of attention to details and colour combination. 3. Approachable and patient - Throughout the renovation journey, we feel extremely comfortable speaking to Jayce about our expectations and likes/ dislikes. Anything which require explanation, he will take time and effort to explain to ensure we understand. He also has has a positive and cheerful attitude that we really like! 4. Follow-up weekly & responsive - Jayce has a good project management which is important. It was a hassle-free experience. We never had to worry about following up with him. Every week, he would automatically send us updates and photos of our renovation status. He is very prompt in his response and always reachable. Jayce did a good job in coordinating with all the vendors. All we need to do is do provide him the contact number and he would do the rest of the liaising. For example - Gas pipe installation, air-con installation. He was at our place to ensure that everything was nicely done. 5. Dedicated & committed - Jayce takes pride in his work. During our renovation journey, he had a minor surgery which require him to rest. Instead of resting at home which we asked him to, he went over to our house to check and keep us updated on our house progress. 6. Work towards our budget - We advised Jayce that we have a tight budget to keep to. He never once pressure us to increase our budget and instead provided his inputs on how we could work together to keep to the budget that we are comfortable with. 7. Post renovation service/ issue - Jayce is responsive to our messages even after the project has been handed to us. He would get his contractors to touch up on the things which were required. Overall, it was a great and pleasant renovation journey with Jayce. We are super thankful to have him as our ID. We strongly recommend Jayce to anyone who is looking to renovate their house. Thank you so much Jayce for the hard work!

I met with IDs from 5 firms which Qanvast recommended. Although the quote was not the lowest but I eventually decided to engage Valentina from Forefront Interior as I found her easy to work with/get along. She enquired about my requirements and lifestyle to incorporate it into the design. She provided constant updates on the renovation progress with photos, as well as the schedule for the following week. I requested for many changes along the way, including the TV console, the colour of the dining area wall (after it was painted), she was accommodating, patient and acceded to the requests. She was very attentive and spotted some defects which I didn’t, and have them rectified accordingly. We encountered some issues here and there but she managed to have them resolved. She was always prompt in replying messages although juggling 6 projects at the same time. She even spent time to help me looked for and liaised with overseas supplier for the door handle that I wanted. I am also appreciative of the good work of the contractors, especially electrician Ah Huat, carpenter Ming Zai, aircon contractor Kent and painters. I am very grateful to have Valentina as my ID. Covid-19 delayed the start of the renovation by a few months, glad that finally I am living in my dream home. Thanks, Valentina !

It started out as a typical ID hunt. My wife and I would send out the moodboard that I’ve prepared and also try to find an ID that would click well with our needs and ideas for the new house. When we met Shaphine, we instantly felt comfortable and instantly clicked. We knew what look we were looking for but we didn’t and couldn’t place a finger on the themes name. After Shaphine told us that the moodboard and look we were describing is ‘mid-century’, endless googling of ideas came after. She was open to our ideas and gave us advices accordingly on what works and what does not. The honesty and transparency she has is truly appreciated. I would like to say that we were quite decisive with how we wanted our house to look like. And Shaphine guided us along and coordinated with us along the way pretty well. She and her colleague Jack, project coordinator for the renovation, constantly updated us on any progress and/or hiccups (which there were almost none) even if there are, we would be updated straight away. All the updates were done weekly. Overall, renovation took approximately 2months due to COVID which kept us at the edge of our seats most of the time, but we were ok with it. We were truly satisfied with the renovation. It’s truly a place we’d wanna go home to every day.

Our cosy home was designed by Jocelyn and the project manager Jack. They constantly kept us updated on the progress of our home renovation and were attentive to our needs and met our requests to their best ability. From the first meet up with Jocelyn to discuss my initial plan up to the point where the completed project was handed back to me, it had been smooth sailing. They were sincere and patient people who really have your needs in mind while proposing any idea that could possibly cover all grounds. Jocelyn is meticulous when coming up with the preliminary idea of my home. After hearing what limitation and problem i had in mind for one of the bedrooms, she was able to propose and design solution to meet my needs. Our family was impressed and happy with the outcome of the room. She will explain to us the strength and limitation of certain design and layout that we discussed to have so that we can make a more informed decision. Furthermore, she will suggest several cost saving measures to us along the way so that we do not spend unnecessarily. I'm really glad i made the decision to engage them as my ID and now i look forward to coming back to our cosy home everyday. I appreciate their delication and good communication throughout the entire process.
