Appealed by the simplicity and workmanship of the carpenters I decided to engage DISTINCTidENTITY as they provided professional services catered to my needs and gave appropriate recommendations when needed. The standard procedures and teamwork make the company feel more organized and structured when carrying out the work schedules.I like the bedroom open cabinet where I can display my favourite items. I will definitely recommend them, it is a great company to work with throughout the whole renovation process.

Initially attracted by the unique designs, the quality of the presentation and professionalism of our designer convinced us to entrust and engage DISTINCTidENTITY for our renovation. Our favourite features are the living room’s feature wall, the dry and wet kitchens and the bar counter. Overall our experience would be summarized as professional, efficient and dedicated, and we will recommend the company.

Our ID was done by Nelia. For our resale flat in Punggol. Painting job was bad. Alot of marks and spillage. Handyman made a mess of our walls. Things were already breaking apart less than 6 months of moving in. We were not informed properly of the works. Checks was done by owner and there was pee stain and dirt all over even though was suppose to be cleaned. Room Door handle broke within months. Toilet leakage. Light was short fused and was burning. Had to take out the whole thing yourself.We have to call our own handyman to settle the breakage and all the bad workmanship done. Will never come back to this Interior Design company and their workers incompetence. Worst idea in the world. And the worst is we paid $70k for $30k work done. Disappointed. When call to make complain, there will never be anyone to contact.

It has been a pleasant experience engaging Calvin to do up our house. He is meticulous, experienced and responsible, which is exactly what we need for an ID and project management for our Reno. The schedule was tight but within schedule.
The sub-contractors are reliable. The house is delivered clean to us after the renovation in move in condition. Minimal cleaning was required.

We found FSI after weeding through several firms that gave us similar, standard, packaged-type of designs. FSI stood out with their ideas after taking into consideration what we wanted.
From design to project management to delivery, all of them have been completed perfectly and timely too!
We want to especially thank Raymond, Cheyenne and Perlinda for even going out of their way to deliver every time when called upon.
Even the after sales service is splendid!

Was a very pleasant experience working with Calvin. He took time and effort to understand what we liked, what we were aiming for and our budget constraints.
He was very responsive to queries, paid great attention to details, gave suggestions when we got stuck choosing materials and managed his sub-contractors well. It was good that we did all the planning and agreement in advance so that when it come to execution, it was smooth sailing all the way.
Am very happy with the results achieved and the service we received during the renovation.

When we first met Connie at a reno fair, she impressed us with her quick ideas and innovation for our slightly odd layout home. She was really confident and was able to suggest better ideas on top of the brief we’d given her.
Throughout the process of working with her, she has been very patient with us and provided us all the answers to our questions. She is Super responsive and is always a step quicker than us - always ready and prepared with answers that we sometimes have yet to think about!
It has been great working with her, and she has really helped to conceptualise the theme of our home accurately. We believe communication is key throughout the execution and process and so far, she has demonstrated above and beyond that.
We highly recommend her if you’re looking for someone who listens, gets it, responds and innovates for you.

Samuel was able to communicate his design ideas effectively, with the focus on our personal preference and practicality - which is of the utmost importance to my family.
He is often a text/call away from any queries we may have during the renovation process. His projected timeline was accurate. Together with his prompt follow ups, he finished the entire project on time. Everyone who had visited our home are impressed with the workmanship and design.
Reviewed by Eigen Tao Zui・Submitted 27 May 2020・Project completed Jan 2020・Designer Kent
Whenever one mentions ‘renovation’, Kent from Swiss design comes to our mind. This in fact, is our second gig with Kent. We did our HDB renovation with Kent 7 years ago, and Kent has been taking care of us since then. Kent handled another recent renovation of our condominium flawlessly too. His professionalism, and meticulousness are top notch. It’s often that he could remember every single detail that we emphasized on, though we as house owners even forgot at times. On top of that, he always takes the costumer’s side, advising us constructively over practicality, durability and cost of the different choices we have to make along the process. He follows the budget proposal strictly and sees the whole project from the beginning to beyond the end. Even after the house was handed over to us, he still responsibly carries out maintenance/touch ups all the way into the warranty period. I have complete trust in Kent, referred him to many of my friends, and all my friends who used Kent’s service were happy to refer him around too!
