We met with many IDs in our search for the ID that best matches the style that we wanted and we are very fortunate to have met Pei gee who impressed us with her creativity, flexibility and great service. Throughout the journey, she put up many of our requests without question- despite being the demanding virgin home owners we are - and was able to deliver on an outstanding project. Pei gee was very accommodating even after handing over, and addressed many of the defects promptly.
We are very thankful for the job well done and will recommend Pei Gee to anyone who wishes to have ease of mind in your renovation journey.

We came across LemonFridge Studio via Instagram and were assigned to Flora. We had intended to renovate our living room/ dining room of our 4-room resale flat only. Though ours was considered a smaller scale renovation project, we decided to engage LemonFridge as Flora was able to provide design ideas that met our needs in addition to what we had in mind. She has a good sense of colour choices and material selections. We are grateful for her professionalism and positive service disposition. She is responsive to all our queries throughout. The renovation process was generally fuss-free for us and works were completed earlier than the projected timeline. Overall, we are pleased with the services rendered as well as the workmanship. We would recommend Lemonfridge Studio's services. :)

We met with several designers from Qanvast but in the end, we chose to entrust the renovation of our home to DreamCreations Interior as they carefully listened and took into consideration our specific needs and preferences in initial meetings and quoted quality materials at reasonable prices. We’re so relieved that the renovation was not as stressful as we feared it may turn out to be. Their professionalism, sense of responsibility and integrity really impressed us. They took pride in their work and showed trustworthiness throughout the entire renovation process. They provided a clear timeline to which they stuck to. They gave expert explanations and advice based on their wealth of experience while also willing to think outside the box and find solutions to our specific requests—particularly opening up the kitchen to have a spacious atmosphere and designing the gate. They sent us regular updates and responded in a timely fashion when we sought clarifications and proposed changes. They patiently helped us with sourcing our fixtures and fittings and dealing with other aspects related to the renovation—moving to our temporary accommodation and back, arranging for people to help us with drilling the walls to hang our numerous frames and coordinating the deliveries. They diligently completed the touch ups after we moved in and have assured us that they will address issues, if there’s any, even after the renovation. Our heartfelt gratitude to both Joseph and Christina. We would not hesitate to recommend DreamCreations Interior for their workmanship and high quality service.

We like to give special thanks to Ryan from Dyel for being our ID for our Lakegrande condo renovation. We really love our new home and we had a great experience working with Ryan.
Initially we went through quite a no of IDs but what made a difference we felt was Ryan was very strong in his design concepts as compared to all the other IDs. The materials and design that he chose for the carpentry work matches closely with the skirtings of the condo and it flowed very nicely and gave a very strong overall theme to the look. He was open to our inputs during selection as well and we felt our contribution gave us a stronger satisfaction after the renovation was completed. The false ceilings design was very well layed out and designed with the number of downlights. The areas where the LED strip lights were placed created a great ambience to the rooms.
It has been a few months since the renovation and the quality and layout of the carpentry is really good. As we had a very small space , we literally have to measure down to every cm so that it will not turn out bulky . Overall, with the TV feature carpentry and room carpentry, the room still looks airy and it does not make the room look smaller. But more importantly, the carpentry provided functional storage areas sufficient to keep our stuff.
The renovation went on smoothly as per plan and we did not have any major delays or hiccups. Also, we managed to meet our renovation budget =)))
Once again, Thank you Ryan and Dyel team!

As a family that was renovating their home for the very first time, we were looking for a design firm that would work with our limited budget, time and space as they were the biggest challenges we had to face, or any ID's greatest challenge so to say. We were pretty fuss free and honestly clueless on how all of it actually worked. We were upfront with Paisley - our designer - (as well as Charles) and told her that we did not really know what we were getting ourselves into and to guide us along the way. We told her what kind of look we were going for and the limitations we had to tackle, with the biggest one being the space constraint. Paisley was very reassuring on that matter and told us that she would try her best to work out and organize the area suitably.
She had managed to plan the space out effectively and proposed good, practical designs that we were satisfied with. Despite having the renovations placed during a peak period, the work was completed very quickly with commendable workmanship. She was able to understand our constraints and delivered the design fruitfully. Contacting her was very easy as she was very present and clarified all queries or doubts instantly.
While we felt like we did go slightly out of our budget, her willingness to work within our budget and tight time-frame dissolved it. We'd like to extend our thanks to her as well as to Charles for his expertise and not forgetting, to the contractors for doing a great job.

Hi all.. I recently just got my keys to my new house and we've been fretting over to choose contractors or ID.. We have sent in inquiry through Renopedia and we chanced upon Nicholas.. We decided to meet him up and go through our renovation details with him and to our surprise, he managed to impress us on the first appointment with his past projects and scale of company.. From the way he portrays himself, we knew that he has plenty of experience in this field.. Our budget was 50K and we have many kids at home so we decided to do a kid-friendly home and at the same time with our intended theme in mind (luxurious feel).. Upon our second meet up.. the quotation was one of the higher ones that we've received but we decided to go with Nicholas as our ID anyways because we have absolute faith in him and his works. During the renovation, of course there were small hiccups but Nicholas managed to resolve without us stepping in.. he gave us an ease of mind during the whole renovation procedure.. We were in a rush to complete the renovation in a maximum of 4 weeks time and he managed to handover on time to us with excellent workmanship and no defects.. Despite the short time-frame, he did not compromise any job scopes.. All in all I would totally recommend Nicholas from InteriorTimes.. Kudos!!

I decided to engage Posh Home after sourcing quotes from many ID firms and contractors, even though Posh Home wasn't necessarily the cheapest option. I arrived at this decision as I could see the earnestness of Karen - the designer - and her flexibility in adapting to the requirements I had set out. These factors proved to hold up throughout the project, and Karen's resourcefulness in finding ways and means to fix issues that cropped out as the the project went on, really helped to guide the reno project along to successful completion. I am happy with the workmanship quality - the carpentry particularly, is really good. While the timeline and cost eventually did go a little beyond schedule and budget, this was mainly because of me adding stuff into the reno mix. All in all, I am happy with Karen's work, and I really love the space that she helped to create for me; I look forward to going and staying home now!

Mr Shopper Studio’s unique style and design stood out from the others through their portfolio when we first started evaluating IDs on Qanvast to renovate our house. We were not only impressed with their online briefing form that asked us about our preferences in style, budget etc but also with our first face-to-face meeting with Ken & Sean. Despite receiving cheaper quotes from a couple of other IDs we chose Mr Shopper for their overall design, finish and the well-put-together look.
What was wonderful in working with our project manager Ken and designer Sean, was how they incorporated our inputs, worked very closely with us on all the details of the design elements yet project managed everything for us from start to finish. It saved us a lot of time and effort in having to monitor and co-ordinate with multiple contactors on-site, however we were constantly updated on the work-in-progress through pictures and text messages. Sean and Ken were also very accommodative of any changes/additions we requested even after they had started the renovation, and extremely patient through the entire process. The outcome was a bright and beautifully renovated house that was exactly like the 3D visuals, delivered on schedule and even better than we had initially imagined! Would highly recommend them!!

We engaged Kalvin from Escapade Studios to help us renovate our resale maisonette in Jurong East, and we are very happy with the end results and also the after sales service. Kalvin was a very responsive ID who would answer all our queries promptly and nicely. The house turned out exactly as was designed in the 3D drawings, and more. He even went with us on a few occasions to pick out suitable furniture, and helped us to buy home decor, all without charging us extra for the consultation. We highly recommend Escapade Studios as your home ID company.
