I began my search for an ID company with 6 shortlisted ID companies, ranging from lesser known to the high end companies. Even though May was recommended by a relative of mine. I still wanted to do some comparison of price, idea, material and "feel" with the IDs as I have not engaged an ID for more than 10 years. Long review ahead. Pricing: Even though Meter Square's pricing was not the lowest and in fact, slightly higher than the popular mass-market IDs you see advertised, I went ahead with Meter Square as May was very assuring, confident of her quality and most importantly, we felt that we "clicked" well with her. She was not pushy with her pricing and allowed us to decide on which we felt was most comfortable, while providing us with her comments on practicality. Designer: May was very patient with us as we spent many days and countless hours going through various laminates, tiles, and fittings for our house. Even though we made some design changes along the way due to various reasons, she always did her best to accommodate without bursting the budget. That said, May has never forced her ideas on us and in fact, tries her best to come up with what we wanted to achieve. In fact, our final completion was almost identical to the 3D rendering which she did for us. May's recommendations were almost always spot-on as she tries her best to understand what we want vs what is practical. If she feels that something might not work well, she says it very honestly to us and this is something we like a lot. Her sense of style and taste is impeccable as well, which of course comes with her bags of experience. Project & timeline management: May's management of timelines was tip-top - I've never seen such meticulous planning and project management over 3 months, even with COVID restrictions. We never had to worry about going on site (even though we were just 10-15mins away) as May kept us up to speed almost daily with her messages and pictures on WhatsApp. If we noticed something wasn't right, we could text May and she would almost always respond to us immediately. May's management of the contractors were also good, with Meter Square's carpentry factory being based in Singapore, which really lessens the downtime especially during COVID. In fact, some friends who were also renovating their homes during the COVID period, shared horror stories about unnecessary delays, unresponsive & M-I-A IDs, bursting of budgets etc - I was relieved that I had chosen a reliable ID in May and Meter Square. We also had to move in before renovation was 100% completed due to COVID measures, but May was always prompt to ensure all the touch-up and fixes were properly done. Quality: Quality of workmanship is good. Meter Square's own carpentry factory was able to come back with rectifications very quickly, with virtually minimal downtime. Though a few of the external contractors she worked had a few minor hiccups, May always sought to resolve them for us without much fuss. We were very satisfied with the overall look, feel and quality of the finishings. Conclusion: If you're looking for an ID that will give you the least worries, deliver quality renovation without busting your budget for your dream home renovation, look no further than Meter Square.

Meter Square was a referred to us by my sister-in-law, who engaged May as her ID for both her houses. After visiting 3 sources, we decided to go with Meter Square, because May is able to provide us practical options that meet our budget and needs. Her ID to make our place look spacious , where the entire area are lighted up evenly that provides us a cozy cum elegant ambient where we call home. The whole renovation experience with May and her team especially Mr A was fabulous. The renovation was completed on schedule during COVID-19 situation is a thumbs up, as Meter Square’s carpentry factory is based in Singapore which avoided risk of delay. Today 14/7/21, we are very pleased as the actual outcome is what May had shown us, where the finishing is really elegant. We have no regrets in choosing Meter Square.

We had shortlisted two ID firms - one whose portfolio we liked from our online research, and Meter Square which was a referral from a colleague who had engaged May as her ID previously. First impression matters and we eventually decided to go with Meter Square as we felt much more comfortable with May after the first meet-ups as she was able to understand what we want and clearly articulate her design ideas. While May placed emphasis on designs and aesthetics, she was still able to offer practical suggestions and ideas. The whole renovation experience with May and her team was also very pleasant - the renovation works were completed ahead of schedule with minimal hiccups which is quite a feat amidst the current COVID-19 situation (Meter Square’s carpentry factory is based in Singapore which mitigates the risk of delays caused by lockdowns). Definitely a positive experience!
