I’m writing this testimonial to compliment Daryl Lee from Butler Interior who handled my renovation at Alexandra.
“Lucky I have you as my ID, Daryl!”
Throughout the renovation process, from idea generation to sourcing of materials to actual works, Daryl offered me sound and professional advice. He has a very good attitude, being attentive and responsible in his work. I am very grateful the time he spent buying all my fittings and lightings, providing me One-Stop Services that am looking for , thus works within my Budget.
I understand it is not easy doing all the coordination, working with his workers, carpenters, plumber and electrician. Truly appreciate his coordination, patience and attending to my needs.
While the project was somewhat a bit delayed due to issues beyond his control, he kept me updated on the progress and supplied pictures of the ongoing works to keep me in the loop which I’ve appreciated it very much.
He also helpful and ensured that my place was tidied and clean at the end of the renovation.
All in all, it has been a great experience worked with him without any big hiccups or hassles. His professionalism, commitment and customer-focus approach has made the whole experience a pleasant one.
I thank Daryl for his great job done and I’m believe he will continue to deliver outstanding results in his future projects.
No regret of choosing him as my ID and will definitely recommended him and his company, Butler Interior to anyone that is interested to do home renovation.
Many thanks once again and all the best!

We found Swiss Design through a Facebook advertisement. After meeting with several other designers we were impressed by the Swiss Design showroom and samples, and felt confident after meeting with their Interior Designer, Hosen.
Our designer Hosen was easy to work with, experienced, and talented. He was very responsive to our questions and requests and provided us regular updates on progress. He was able to take our initial concepts and develop them further, to meet and exceed our expectations, with their 3D renders looking very close to the end result.
Hosen also provided extra service to assist us in selection and delivery of lighting fixtures and kitchen appliances.
The service and workmanship is of a good standard and everything went according to schedule and within budget. Overall we are very pleased with our experience with Swiss Design.

Recently we undertook changing our Condominium unit interior design. Design 4 Space firm had done some work early with neighbors and were suggested as good alternative. I am glad that I contacted them and were able to meet an able , competent , and innovative designer Mr Edmund Lee from the firm.
Edmund and the firm were very approachable and took time to understand our unique requirements as well as expectations from the renovation. They indeed validated the concepts before start up that is quite important. As one can imagine, middle way we changed some minor and major tasks but that were taken as business as usual and the firm responded to it very positively and professionally. We were pleasantly surprised when the designer Edmund and agency folks can come to our calls even after normal office hours and can attend to the needs. Initial finance prediction and budget allocation were maintained till the end of project and that's the most important point in the whole project. Edmund and the firm were very transparent and clear in this aspect.
The firm indeed gives significant years of after sales service which is crucial for customers and till date examples suggest that they do come to your rescue as and when the need arises, specially Edmund himself.
I would strongly recommend Edmund Lee and his firm Design 4 Space for the "value for money' that they bring to whole project. Their designs have been very innovative and much to everyone's liking.
We do feel that our family values are reflected through the designs and home renovation done and our own thinking and ideas has been embedded in the final product that was delivered.
Thanks to Edmund Lee and Design 4 Space !

The whole renovation is completed with quality while being able to satisfy my budget. Although the timeline was a bit delayed, it was still well planned and managed. Overall it was a good experience working with him and we are satisfied with the renovation.

Steve Goh is a very patient and thoughtful designer. He has gone the extra mile beyond his call of work as an interior designer countless times to ensure that we are comfortable with our new home. From his sincerity, I can feel his passion to build good client relation, he is easy going and accomodates even to our tough requests. Steve is easily contactable and never fails to respond to our messages despite his busy schedule. Working with him to renovate our new home is one of the best decisions we had made. Hearing from our friends the many unpleasant experiences with their designers did put a certain level stress within us when we had to renovate our home. I am thankful to have met Steve, he had given us a friendly and stress free experience. Thumbs up for Steve! :)

Matt is helpful, patient & understand what we need. He designed the floor plan & advice us & we need to amend the floor plan he will explain to us properly & bring us to the shop to choose the house accessories what we need for the house.
He reported to us of the process. He’ll go down personally to check on the house & if the contractor do wrongly he’ll asked them to change or redo. If we need to change the color or design he’ll advise us.

From the very first meeting, Chun Wai was very accommodating and was very generous with fresh ideas. He helped us through many issues we faced and gave us many suggestions. The focus was mainly being practical yet not compromising on the aesthetics. Budget was also strictly kept to its limit. Very responsive and would constantly update us on the progression. Did not disappoint my 300% trust. I couldnt have asked for anything more. Best choice I've made for my home is Chun Wai... 👍

It was our first home and we were thus new to home design and renovation. We were excited and yet apprehensive about the whole process and were thankful to have engaged Joseph. He was patient to take the time to understand what we were looking for, explaining to us what works and what wouldn’t, worked within our budget and came out with the design we wanted. Very reliable, the renovation works were well carried out and we were not disappointed. In terms of the materials and workmanship, it has been over 3 years and none of the carpentry works have given way. We will engage him again for our new home.

Let’s just say between Mike, my husband and myself, it was all chemistry at first meet! We were very comfortable with his transparency and practicality when it comes to giving his point of views on the ideas we had in mind - from the initial planning stage right up to completion. I like transparency, so that’s one major plus point already. Mike isn’t your usual ID next door. Throughout the entire renovation process, he went out of his way to ensure that delivery was made according to the planned timeline that was given to us. Communications were sent out (he made a group chat for us three) daily on the littlest progress of our reno and this puts us at ease - given the nature of our jobs, the husband and I have very little time to spare just to drop by our place for progress checks, so it really helps alot. Mike also ensured that the renovation is within our stated budget and although we weren’t in a rush to get the house ready, everything was completed within the timeline, in fact slightly earlier. We are extremely happy with how our house turned out, it’s beyond our expectations and definitely a dream come true. Thank you Mike !

I went to Qanvast to look for my interior designer. Having met those that Qanvast gave me, I selected DOD as I felt that Angela could communicate well with me. Their designs were also what I was looking out for. As it was my first renovation project, I had many questions and a lot of uncertainty. Angela was able to listen and gave me recommendations. For eg I saw a design of a door in Pinterest and showed it to Angela. She was able to research and find a way to get a similar door for me. During the renovation itself, I was quite busy and Angela was able to supervise the project for me. The completion of the renovation was according to plan and I was satisfied with the outcome. There were minor areas after I lived in for a short while like my led lights needed to be stuck back and Angela was able to address the issue very quickly. Hence I was quite satisfied.
Overall, I would recommend DOD as I felt that they listened to my needs, communicated their recommendations, waited patiently for me to make decisions and delivered as they promised. Angela is also responsive and prompt with her service.

Amongst all of our options, Darwin Interior was the only one that could work with us without the actual floor plan. Our ID, Clinton Tan from the Yishun Branch has been a joy to work with. He managed to complete the renovation within the short time frame given as we need to move in quickly. He’s very patient, flexible and was always within reach. I don’t know how many times I’ve changed my mind about something and he always managed to make it happen. The whole renovation journey was nothing but seamless.
