Habit has designed a timeless home for our family incorporating function, design and beauty all on point! Yanling, Denise, Daniel & Lena were able to ask us all the right questions to discover our decorating style & needs, integrating with their expertise and bring the concept to life. After deciding and agreement upon the theme and design of the home, selection of down lights, accent lights and bathroom fittings were shortlisted based on the overall design of the home. We like Habit’s artistic ability to develop practical designs that looks great but yet also aesthetically pleasing and importantly has a style that lasts through the years We had a fuss free renovation experience with a superb post-handover service. The Habit Team’s follow up is exceptional and any queries or rectifications were promptly dealt with.

About Habit
*Habit is currently only able to take on projects for 2022. A modest team of real and passionate individuals who have been professionally trained in a variety of specializations, we are intuitive to detail, steadfast in execution, and interactively candid. The Habit team approaches every project and client with creative ambition and dedication. FEES & GUIDELINES The standard design fee starts from 7k onwards, and the range would vary accordingly to the size of property, complexity of works, and professional hours spent. The approximate renovation budget can be determined by the size and age of the property, starting from $80/sft for new properties, and $90/sft for resale properties. The above estimate would serve as a good guideline for clients, as a minimal requirement. The extent of increment with reference to the above numbers, would vary accordingly depending on the choice of finishes, complexity of reconfiguration as well as the extent of core works for resale properties. Habit is a lean design outfit and we do have a limited project bandwidth. This ensures consistency, and uncompromised quality across all our executed works. With this, we will only be able to take on projects with minimum budgets as detailed below. under 700 sqft new - min. 60k resale - min. 70k 701-1050 sqft new - min. 80k resale - min. 90k 1051 sqft onwards new - min. 90k resale - min. 100k

Embarking on a renovation is normally daunting, much less during a pandemic. As such, we could not have wished for a safer pair of hands than the Habit team to guide us through the entire process. Their value-add became quickly apparent from the proposal stage where we were given layouts we wouldn’t have previously thought of as being possible in light of the technical specifications and space constraints. They were quick to draw our attention to potential blind spots as well as provide thoughtful, practical and elegant solutions to make the space truly liveable. Despite the global supply chain/pandemic-related delays, they were able to manage processes and troubleshoot issues effectively. Their reliability and responsiveness really (in my humble opinion) puts them heads and shoulders over other outfits. Finally, even after the handover process was completed, Yanling and Denise continued to amaze with their problem solving abilities and definitely went above and beyond in getting teething issues rectified promptly. In summary, the experience with Habit has been nothing short of outstanding, highly recommended if you want a smooth and nightmare-free renovation process!

We first approached habit 6 years ago when we bought our first marital home. We were so pleased with how that turned out, the day we made an offer for our 2nd home, we texted Habit immediately to chope them for our next big project! Habit listens. And I think that's what homeowners need from our IDs. Habit listened and came up with proposals based on not just what we wanted, but also based on what suited the family's lifestyle. I have heard my friends share their experiences, where their IDs would share proposals based on previous projects, and just provide solutions that would be aesthetically pleasing, but totally not functional. Their designs are also thoughtful - my place has quite a lot of bay windows which makes it difficult to play up on space and storage. Habit did such a great job proposing creative solutions to manoeuvre around the restrictions and design a living space that made our place look big & the bay window spaces well utilised. The end result was clearly a living space that was uniquely ours. What I appreciate most is the extra mile Habit is willing to go. They even approached various furniture vendors to provide us with furnishing ideas that matched their design proposal. So what we got is a holistic 360 creative proposal - this helps a lot as they know best what style fits, and u don't have to go around hunting (& visualising on your own) for the furniture you need! Most importantly, Habit is reliable and responsible. No MIA post handover. They have been providing support (for both our projects) to ensure a smooth move-in, making it such a stress-free and enjoyable experience working with them. Thanks Habit! I'll see you very soon for our next project!

Just when we thought we had all options explored and sketched on our PowerPoint, and all the IDs we had pre-engaged earlier seemed to think along the same plane, Habit decided to surprise us with three space planning proposals that showed us how our new space can be reimagined and reconfigured in a way that optimizes the small footprint and yet meet our brief. What sealed the deal was not being given a cookie cutter floorplan, but one that really got us more excited about our new apartment than before. The design process did involve some test of our imagination since there was no 3D rendering, but there was already alignment in terms of aesthetics and design language, based on our mood board and Habit's past works. We were therefore able to converge pretty quickly, since the team was clear with their vision (with very detailed cross-sections) yet open-minded enough to hear and incorporate our views. The recommendations on the furnishings were also spot on. As for the actual renovation, we can only say we were truly impressed by the team's professionalism and meticulousness. Every millimetre counts, every detail matters. Because of this, there were a lot of consultation videos via whatsapp which allowed us to decide on the placement/palette/position quickly (with good advice from the team) and get a sense of the progress real-time. We can also see that the team exercised good control over the different groups of workers and the schedule. Despite some drag brought about by the pandemic and our stringent MCST, the team worked really hard and delivered the final product in time for our scheduled move-in date. All in all, we are really happy with how our home has turned out. We have stayed in our place for half a year now, and are still loving every nook and corner. Looking back, the renovation journey was every bit enjoyable, almost care/fuss-free. A big shout-out to Yanling, Denise and Daniel for giving us a stylish home. We cannot recommend Habit enough. ☺ Kel & YN
