We engaged The Makers Design Studio after meeting with 8 other IDs. The decision was easy to make after having done some “homework”, comparing notes on costing, design proposals, and chemistry with the lead consultant. We found The Makers to be current and creative in their ideas, to give us the most out of a tiny floor space for ‘two women and a dog’, they also had a much greater sense of style compared to the many IDs we had met with - such a relief to find an ID with greater taste than us! :D In retrospect, pricing wise, we didn’t find a huge difference with other IDs, but it was the other things that won us over. Small details like how your cabinets are lined up or divided, and doing more carpentry while still effortlessly looking minimalist. These are things that we could only truly appreciate after having lived in the space. So sometimes it pays to trust your designer in design details that you may have not been able to see in the proposal process! Finally, there were the small touches they suggested such as a swing-style door for our dog that was very thoughtful, and may very well have been the deciding factor for us - as they actually thought about our lifestyle and priorities! Overall, we were very happy with our experience in collaborating our ideas with The Makers in getting our dream home completed in time. Would be recommending them to anyone of our friends. And a word of advice to anyone looking for IDs, while costing is important, also look for someone who is thoughtful in your living space and needs.

We engaged Cecil because we really liked one of her previous works, showcased on Qanvast. This turned out to be the best choice we made. The final product far exceeded even our own hopes. :) and it was extremely close to the 3D. Cecil has a very good designer’s eye - she knows how to create one’s ideal home. She asked us about our general ideas and preferences. And then she does her magic. For busy couples like us, it was a god-sent. We mostly relied on Cecil’s recommendations, for every small and big thing. She’d never go wrong w her taste and design. For the logistics, it was fuss-free. We entirely (i mean, in a totally hands-off fashion) left it to Cecil and Len. We did not bother with going to check on defects etc - Cecil and Len will give us frequent updates and consult us where needed. We were thankful for Cecil & Len going on this house reno journey with us. Will definitely engage them on our next ;)

First renovation, so was quite particular during the choosing of ID, but Cecil from The Makers Design Studio had caught our attention, she was attentive and patience, hearing all our requests and gave us lots of suggestions and ideas, even before we had shortlisted her quotation. So tadaa, we had chose her! Though there might be some hiccup along the renovation, but this is common during renovation! So no regret engaging her service, fuss free, prompt reply and proactive updates of our renovations. Definitely will introduce my friends to her!
