Actualising our dream home in difficult times

Reviewed by Lynna・Submitted 15 Oct 2020・ Project completed Oct 2020・Designer Tay Sufen

We are very thankful to have Tay Sufen design and deliver our first home during this extraordinary COVID-19 period. Sufen is a talented and knowledgeable designer. Based on just a few pictures we showed her, Sufen was immediately able to understand what kind of theme we were going for. Her 3D design was able to capture what we had envisioned in our heads, and we constantly relied on her recommendation and choice of materials and colours. The final product was truly a manifestation of our dream house. Besides her design, Sufen impressed us with her efficiency from the onset, delivering a quote faster than the other 5 IDs we consulted. Most remarkable was Sufen and her contractors' ability to work around manpower shortages and disruptions due to COVID-19. Ultimately, we moved into a fully functioning house just within two months after the circuit breaker. Although there were some minor reiterations we had to work through at the final stage, Sufen proved to be very reliable and responsible. She was very responsive to our many queries (even when we did not expect her to reply at odd hours). She was honest, worked well within our budget, and was not at all overbearing in her recommendations.

Reviewed by Cai Wenxing・Submitted 15 May 2022・ Project completed Mar 2022・Designer Ezekiel

We met with 5 IDs and we decided to go with Ezekiel because he is not one who will over promise and he will come up with suggestions when certain ideas are not very feasible, rather than just asking us to drop the ideas totally. My wife and I were impressed when he will not hesitate to tell us how he feels about certain things and weighs the pros and cons with us before we made a decision. Every renovation will have its ups and downs and he will try his best to correct any issues we faced. We had to move in by a certain time and he was still rushing for us to make the timing even though there is labour crunch in the industry. The workmanship is quite good. Overall, we are very happy we chose him as our ID. Cheers!

Awesome Renovation Experience

Reviewed by Jerlyn・Submitted 31 Mar 2022・ Project completed Jun 2021・Designer Din

We are very grateful to have Din from Third Paragraph as our ID. She is very responsible and knowledgeable, giving us first time home owners a lot of great advice. Cannot imagine a renovation journey without her. The ID firm works with very experienced partners (tilers, carpenters etc). Workmanship is fantastic. Cannot recommend Din enough and we will definitely recommend her to our family and friends.

Excellent experience working with Ezekiel. Will recommend 10/10 to friends

Reviewed by Thanawin Pramotedham・Submitted 15 Feb 2022・ Project completed Dec 2021・Designer Ezekiel

My wife and I shortlisted roughly 4-6 interior design firms before deciding to go with Ezekiel from Third Paragraph to renovate our 4-room resale flat. Since then, we have never looked back. From the word go, Ezekiel was able to understand our direction and preferences for the house, and was always responsive to our queries. Ezekiel was immensely helpful during the "preliminary" phase. This was even before we had committed to choosing Third Paragraph and Ezekiel as our firm/ paid the deposit. As first time home-owners, my wife and I did not have much/any experience designing a house before; Ezekiel always respectfully stepped in and gave more workable alternatives whenever he felt some of our design ideas would not be practical. This is a quality which we really appreciate in Ezekiel, and one that we found hard to come by in the other interior designers we surveyed, who tended to just go along with whatever we proposed. Ezekiel put in a lot of effort into explaining his thoughts/directions to us, and providing mock-ups. Although the total price of the invoice was not the cheapest amongst the competing firms, it was by no means expensive/ overpriced; there were complementary add-ons such as kitchen hob/hood/toilet items which were not provided by other companies. Most importantly, the value which we gained with Ezekiel as our ID made the other offers pale in comparison. Third Paragraph and Ezekiel were largely responsible for electrical works, carpentry, masonry, tiling, piping, paintwork etc. for the house; i.e Air Conditioning, Toiletries, Furniture, Appliances had to be self sourced. Nevertheless, Ezekiel made it a point to help in receiving appliances during their delivery slots, especially if my wife and I were not available to receive it. He also paid particular attention to the installation of new-airconditioning and piping, that it would not damage the existing false ceiling. This is despite many other concurrent projects that he is understandably busy with. The total renovation time for our house was about 4-5 months; no mean feat during a raging COVID pandemic, where many friends have their renovation periods delayed up to 1 year. There were no hidden costs, and additional dollars paid beyond what was quoted in the original invoice were purely because of add-ons that my wife and I realised we wanted. When we started to purchase furniture and appliances, my wife and I realised that certain wall colors would not fit well with the color of the couch we chose to purchase. Ezekiel was flexible, and changing the planned colors of the walls was no issue. After the renovation was done, a hand-over was done between Ezekiel and ourselves, to ensure that there were no defects that needed clearing. However, even when we ran into issues with certain elements of our carpentry after the hand-over date, Ezekiel was still responsive and helped with rectifying these defects. We would highly recommend Ezekiel and Third Paragraph to other new home-owners, and will definitely keep him in mind for our next home. (:
