I was introduced to TDI by a common friend and right from the get go, what set them apart was the fact that they did not shoot down my ideas like the other IDs does, they listened to my ideas, expanded on it and also made it better. They are also extremely professional and came up with the pros and cons of each idea. They are very detailed orientated and had been very responsive and even when I changed my mind half way, they still thought of ways to integrate it in Faced with many challenges and my extreme fussiness, they still managed to deliver. They even went out of their way to fixed problems my previous renovation brought me and gave me a service that I literally never knew I could find. Through my entire adulthood, I had engaged 3 different IDs, and I will say TDI has been the best experience I had with ID so far.

I engaged Yaosheng from TDI Interior to redesign and remodel a 1-bedroom unit. The unit was not in good condition upon purchase, the previous owner having done little to no maintenance and I hated the current design. I decided to overhaul the entire unit; in fact, the only thing we really kept was the living room flooring. Yaosheng was very receptive to the strong vision I provided - he used the reference photos I gave him and came up with the first 3D drafts. The first drafts managed to capture 80% of what I had in mind - Yaosheng stayed true to my needs while putting across his own point of view. Working with him was truly a partnership, where we would trade ideas and how better to improve the design for my needs. During the actual work, Yaosheng managed his contractors well. He went out of his way to help purchase my fittings when I was overseas, so it would not affect the timeline. He was also always contactable, and willing to solve any issues that arise during the renovation. Yaosheng kept me frequently updated on the progress with photos, and checked with me on any changes / updates found. Even after delivery, Yaosheng was always supportive of post-handover issues. He rectified a leak I found with quick turnaround time. I am very satisfied with the finished work - every visitor has complimented on the design and workmanship of the unit - and I would strongly recommend working with Yaosheng.

I engaged TDI to do up my kitchen through a suggestion from Blum Kitchen's adviser. TDI assigned CG to work with me to start building my dream Blum kitchen. CG first interviewed me on my project requirement. He later translated it into layout plans. He explained clearly on how each of the layout will be functional to our family cooking routine. I provided my comments and inputs and CG patiently went back and forth to change the design a couple of times. After the approval of plan, the construction phase began and CG was helping to coordinate with my other contractors to ensure the timely delivery of the kitchen. There were of course some changes during construction as I wanted to add a few other things. CG was able to suggest valuable advise on the changes to be made. Overall, my family and I are very satisfied with the outcome - beautiful, clean and functional.

We got to know of TDI through a relative whom we had seen their renovated done house by TDI and decided to engage TDI after our meeting with YS. It was a good experience with YS and his team of contractors. Things went according to schedule, the advice offered was valuable as they were experienced. The proposed design was good, it was according to what we had wanted. YS was able to accommodate to our requests and also offer advice of his own. Once the final proposal was agreed, the renovation work started. The quality of the carpentry work was very good. The carpentry and electrician worked as a team to complete the work according to schedule. YS was also flexible as we managed to bargained with him to provide some discounts for the works done! Overall, we exceeded our budget by a little bit but that was due to some little extra things that we wanted to add the the project. The job was completed on time and we were able to move in to our new home in no time.
