I started planning the renovation with no clear idea of what I wanted except that it has to have a loft, with simple and clutter-free design with something navy blue in it. I decided to engaged Zach from HIFA even before getting a quotation after briefly talking to a few other IDs. In his easy-going manner Zach listens patiently, give options and will gently give his expert opinion. He is trustworthy and always make sure the quality of materials and workmanship are topnotch. I'm busy at work and very seldom able to visit the site during renovation but I never had any issue at all. Zach handles his contractors and suppliers very well. I requested a couple of last-minute additional works; he promptly attended to it and still finishes ahead of schedule. In the beginning I just had a rough idea of what the house would look like, but very delighted to see that the outcome was well beyond my expectations. Very well done, Zach! Instead of describing his most outstanding quality, let me describe what I was looking for in a designer, company or anyone for that matter to work with in a project. He is knowledgeable and passionate about their craft, open to new ideas, independent yet comfortable enough to work as part of a team, and able to rise above the challenges that comes along the way. Zach embodies all of that. So to all homeowners out there looking for someone trustworthy and hard-working, look no further.

Great service rendered and impressed with their workmanship and customer service. They provided in depth explanations and design catalogues for comparison.

I got to know HIFA Design Studio through a recommendation from a friend. She had done her renovation with the ID and was impressed with the price and workmanship that was done. I then proceed to learn more about HIFA Design Studio and browse their portfolios online. We had met up to discuss further on my requirements and felt he was one of the IDs that gave the most competitive quote compared to the rest. During the renovation, my ID Samuel will be on site and made sure everything is smooth. Anytime I feel unsure, he would be glad to explain any inquiries about the renovation. Even after the renovation was completed, Samuel would do an after renovation visit to and follow up any areas that are needed to be rectified. Great job Samuel!

Got to know the ID through Houzz reviews! The ID Keith was very responsive and managed to think out of the box to fit my budget. It was a really pleasant experience as I had no problems with project management. Though the design was nothing really fancy, it is very practical for us. What I liked about them was that they are very sincere in helping us meet our budget and timeline. Everything went smoothly and we are happy with the outcome of our home.

I got to know HIFA through a friend's recommendation. I engaged them out of the other IDs as the price that was quoted to us was reasonable and within our budget. Keith was the ID in charge and he was very responsive and able to deliver the project well as discussed. He was also very accommodating to our request and requirements that we proposed. If there is anything that they can improve on would be perfecting the final furnishing of products. Other than that, I am satisfied with the outcome of the renovation.
