We had plenty of quotations from different IDs. Having a budget of 30k for a 4 Room flat didnt seem possible for most of the IDs. We met Ben from Juz Interior. He was the last guy we met and he gave us a reasonable quote. Having read online reviews and pleased with the quote, we engaged our services with Juz Interior.
We needed to move in within a short span of time. From the start to end Ben was just awesome. We didnt have any issues pertaining to reno works and no hiccups. He never said NO to whatever we asked. He was very accomodating to our needs. He incorporated all our design ideas and gave us what we wanted.
I would highly recommend Ben for his services. He was a bliss to work with. That said, as promised he did hand over the keys on the said date without any problems. Most importantly, his after service was very good. Thanks Ben.

The moment we spoke to Leon, we knew we have found the right company to do work for us at our house. Leon is a wonderful & patience person to talk to and he explains to us on the process on each and every project. We have been a happy, satisfied customer since you did the work on our house. You make each customer feel important no matter how big or how small the project. We also commend you on how you answer questions, return calls, meet with people to set up and do and complete each tasks. And you do it in such a timely manner. I want you to know that you (Leon), your company (Ovon Design Pte Ltd), and your team, who came to my house to do work whose names I unfortunately do no know are wonderful and there is nobody better. Your price, they are just perfect. I think it is wonderful how you work with each customer. You have a devoted customer for life and I will recommend you to everyone who needs a contractor. There are truly no words to explain the joy we feel due to you & your team. I will look forward to working with you in the future.

The most pleasing thing I owned one bedder apartment recently was to make right choice to engaged Leon from Ovon Design as my ID, he was brilliant ID.I told him during my first meeting I wanted luxury theme as well as I needed a lot of storage space because my unit didn’t has store room. I was impressed by the 3D presented to me during second meeting,it was more than I expected.
The actual renovations looked exactly the
same as 3D,very good workmanship,the price was reasonable as compared to other ID firms.
All my neighbours and friends was impressed and stunned by this beautiful design and commented it looked like hotel and cosy.
Once again, thank you Leon,you are wonderful ID. For those looking for ID, I strongly recommended Leon from Ovon Design

Thanks again, James!

Alvin did our business space renovation compromising on the mechanical work space area and also office space area. Alvin understood our requirements and managed to work within the budget without compromising on the quality. Alvin was attentive and gave us his honest and practical advice on the renovation works. We are truly satisfied with his and his team's service and appreciate their efforts in building a great commerical area for us. After sales service is superb. 2 years on, I am still getting him to modify my work space and even for my home. Modifying our spaces is due to us wanting a change of look and I am looking forward to getting Alvin to do up my new place when it comes.

We first came across D Initial Concept profile during my search for a suitable ID. Eva took up my case and can immediately understand what I am looking for after our first discussion. During our second discussion she is able to present to me the first draft of the space planning and the concepts which fits our requirements. Eva is also very meticulous towards details and patience with us whenever we raise additional request to fine tune the design as well.

Ovon Design Pte Ltd, in particular, Leon, the Interior Designer(ID), was very responsive, and he had provided good guidance throughout the 3-4 months of renovation.
We selected Ovon after engaging a total of 6 Interior Designers. We selected Ovon in the end because:
* The advice from Leon seems not unrealistic – things that are challenging, he didn’t say simply said yes, or no, but went through the reasons of why, and also said he will try his best, but there are constraints that we need to take into consideration, and offered alternatives. This is valuable skill but is dependent on ID’s experience (which we see in Leon)
* Price. The price that Ovon put together is the lower of the 6 ID’s proposals but not the lowest. We took this proposal because Leon seemed experienced and comparing the 6 proposals, Ovon’s proposal is most systematic – you know what’s in the price you paid and what’s not included.
Even though this is not a tear down and rebuild, our house renovation wasn’t a simple one, so there were quite a few changes throughout the 3-4 months. Leon was quite patience and where he can absorb into existing cost, he would. There were quite a few that we had requested him to totally changed the design or newly added – for those I can tell he is billing us “bare-bone” cost.
From a contractor management perspective, he also keeps a good oversight of them to ensure progress and quality of work done. Where a sub-contractor has hit a problem, he is there to provide advice and where it impacts overall design, he is quick to come to us on thoughts and alternatives.
Whether it’s the quality of the material/equipment, questions on design, look and feel, quality of workmanship, site planning and control, defect resolution during the warranty period, Leon was always available to respond, with the background that work done was within building and safety guidelines.
Out of the country, we were not around during most of the 3 to 4 months’ renovation, however Leon was very reliable, and continued to progress the work along. On a weekly basis, Leon will give us a call or provide photos or videos through wechat/whatapps to update us on progress.
With the budget that we have and (& thanks to Leon), we are extremely happy with the renovation
We would gladly recommend Ovon-Leon to other people and would be very happy to engage him again in future renovations

Vincent blew us away with his designing skills. Husband and I only gave him a broad concept of what we wanted for our 4-room flat (lotsa storage space but spacious and minimalistic look). We eventually made only very minimal changes to his 3Ds!
Vincent’s designs are both aesthetically pleasing and very user-centric. We had been pleasantly surprised on several occasions by some of these design ideas (drawer for socks under the bench near the entrance!).

David is helpful and provide valuable suggestion when I need to change my kitchen top. Instead of insisting to use the most expensive materials and exquisite design, he would listen to my suggestion and work around my budget to tailor the kitchen top as per my requirement. His quotation is reasonable. Overall I'm quite pleased with the workmanship. I would recommend Imposed Design to the others.

Firstly I would like to thanks my ID Vesna for her hard work and guide us through the whole renovation process.
This lady very Tok Gong (Very power), she will come up to my new house almost everyday (Almost means her off day she never come la) to update and take photo/video of the progress. When I discuss some idea with her about what I wanna do, she will tell me whether it can blend in to the concept nicely. Mostly importantly even after renovation is completed and all payments are paid, she will still ask her guys to come up for paint touch up and also change electrical stuff.
I will definitely recommend Vesna to my Friend. Give her a 👍 for the work. Xie Xie Ni (Thank you) Vesna

It was a wonderful experience working with both IDs. Angeline is a newbie so together with her mentor they work together in design. They gave good ideas and willing to listen to our ideas. Very organized in our meetups for discussion. As we stayed in the house throughout one month renovation, they scheduled the different stages of Reno nicely. They followed the Renovation tightly and update us. Overall, I love the transformed house That they designed for us! Thank you so much!
