I had just completed the renovation of my three room resale flat. It was a pleasant experience and Nicholas Gn, my designer displays his professionalism through his knowledge in the renovation field as well as his aesthetic knowledge in design. I believe that is the reason for choosing an ID vs a contractor. The aesthetic is important to me too. Nicholas would always give me the pros and cons of every choices before I made my decision. This is very helpful especially to someone who is a first time home owner and had never done renovation before. Nicholas believes in practicality in design. This helped me to avoid many unnecessary spendings. Most importantly, he listens to his client. I was not very happy with my flat previous owner’s design which made the three room flat look cramped and claustrophobic. Nicholas understands that and all his design concept for me helps to counter the problem I had with the flat. I could say that I really love my place now! Some IDs I went to keep saying my house is small but to Nicholas, he offers solution in terms of the design choice made to solve my problems instead of stating the obvious. This shows his professionalism and experience in the field. Also, he would update me on the progress of the renovation and swiftly helped to resolve any issues that cropped up. I really appreciate it and his honesty when asked for opinions on my furnishings. Yes, I will recommend Nicholas to anyone who wants to do renovation.

After going through 7 different IDs, we finally decide to go with Nicholas from Third Paragraph to do our house renovation. Nicholas is one of the few IDs that give us a very good impression from our very first meeting. Throughout subsequent meeting, he shows us his professionalism by incorporates our desired features into his design. He also incorporates several practical features in his designs which suits our needs as a young couple. We are glad that we engaged Nicholas as our ID as my wife and I are pretty busy during this period. Nicholas managed all the renovations and update us promptly on the progress, without both of us needing to worry about the renovation. Although there is some unexpected situation throughout the renovation, such as delays in materials and minor defects, but these are to be expected especially during the pandemic. Not only that, the defects were rectified within 2 days. Overall, we are happy that we engaged Nicholas as our ID. The house turns out to be great as what we expected and we would definitely recommend Nicholas for house renovation.

Nicholas along with his team approached our renovation project in a decisive manner. He was there to provide the necessary consultation wherever and whenever we needed it. Unlike other consultants, he was never overbearing, and we feel as if he was an equal part stake holder in our new home! Despite a challenging timeline, a tight budget all set against a backdrop of a nationwide pandemic, Nicholas came out swinging, with a perfectly delivered project within budget and deadline. We never feel at any point that cost was “piled on”. We knew exactly what was being spent and he was accommodating to our occasional shifting design goals

I find myself admiring our home almost on a daily basis. From the aesthetics to the functionalities to the design, everything is on point and exactly how we collectively planned it to be. It puts a smile on my face everyday. An integral part to this outcome was having met and worked with Din K. Her vision, creativity and professionalism really stood out. She is the reason why the entire process was virtually stress free and fun. We met a lot of ID’s, but once we met with Din K we hit it off. It is very important find someone you are on the same page with and also share a similar vision with of where you want to go. When she first showed us the 3D rendering of the home we knew she was the one that really understood us. Almost all of her recommendations and suggestions were on point, she knew what we liked. How very lucky we were. Din K, is incredibly professional, effective, efficient and simply good at what she does. Among her many strengths, her communication skills, project and time management skills and attention to detail really stood out. Once we agreed on the look and feel of the home, Din K had a clear plan on how this would all be executed. True enough the plan was more or less adhered to, with some exceptions due to Covid-19, but Din K was amazing at adjusting our expectation and ready, once work was allowed to resume. She had a clear timeline and showed confidence in her contractors, tilers, electricians, plumbers etc. At no point during the entire project did we get a sense of uncertainty or lack of trust because of her. Throughout the project she was fully committed and would go above and beyond to ensure we would achieve what it was we set out to achieve. Small things, such as the placement of tiles (order, orientation etc), to name but one of many examples, did make a big difference once the home was complete. Thinking back to those moments where she took her time to go and view all of these tiles together with us at the suppliers, selecting these with us, going to our home to then place these together etc made a huge difference. I am sure that most people that are fortunate enough to work with Din K on their homes are going to have a great time. If I had to pick one thing to highlight, it would be her communication skills. You feel involved and always kept up to date throughout. She held our full trust and confidence throughout the entire process. I highly recommend Din K.
