When I first saw Thomas' work in my brother's condominium, I was impressed with the clean and functional design concept and decided to engage him to give my 33-year-old flat a brand new look. The last renovation done by the previous owner in the mid-90s had become dated and everything was falling apart. When Thomas came by at our first meeting, he assessed the whole interior and by the 2nd meeting, he was ready with his proposed hand-drawn design of my living room which I immediately fell in love with. And when the 3D pictures of the rest of the apartment were presented later, I knew I had found the right ID in Thomas who knew exactly what I was looking for to give my home a new lease of life. I felt very comfortable discussing and working with Thomas as he was open and accommodating, while also ensuring that we kept to the essence of our agreed design concept. Of course there were hiccups along the way but Thomas was always only a phone call away and he would ensure that every issue was taken care of, hence making the whole renovation journey for my family and me a really memorable one. To see the fruition of all that was envisioned a reality now is just amazing! My family and I love our home so much now that we don't even mind not stepping outside for the entire weekend! In fact, when friends and neighbours came by, they were so awed by the total transformation that they asked for Thomas' contact number. Thank you, Thomas, for helping us design our lovely home and still accommodating our after-renovation requests almost a year on.

We had a Mission Impossible: 131sqm 5Rm HDB, home to 11 persons. My wife & I have 5 kids, 3 elderly and 1 helper. Ideally we needed landed house. In reality we only got HDB. Thankfully we found our Tom Cruise. Thomas solved our space issue with smart designs & patiently understood the different needs of the many family members, making so many adjustments along the way without complaints. With so many kids and elderly to care for, Thomas was careful in managing our costs. Yet the design was really homely and beautiful. The renovation quality was also solid, especially the carpentry works. The after sales service was also excellent. My wife and I are really thankful that we found Thomas who did an outstanding job for our home.

I decided to engage Thomas out of the few IDs we shortlisted as we felt comfortable working with. Thomas proposed to me good creative ideas and design with competitive price unlike other most of the IDS that we met which they pushing packages and doesn’t solve our requirements. When the false ceiling was just done it was just like what Thomas proposed and shown to us on the 3D design. I don’t like the conventional false ceiling design which mostly can be found online but Thomas make a big different on the design. During the renovation, there are some hiccups along the way. Thomas is always there for me, as he will solve the problem immediately to get back on track as I wanted to move in before Chinese New Years. I am happy with the renovation. My neighbours asked about my ID after seeing my place and they also engaged Thomas as their ID.
