Kalvin was the last ID we approached at one busy Qanvast event, disappointedly he was the first to revert the same day... Went on to shop for ID services, our list included some big ones...
Surprisingly we met Kalvin another 3-4 times before saying let's go...
A lot of ideas, exchanges, references popped up during design select. Patiently explained his thoughts, our needs were heard, updates came in late into weekdays night. Received photos and live updates of renovation progress during lunch times. We felt properly connected.
End of the day, the final product is modern yet practical for this 3 gen family. Guests praised the rounded corners on hard carpentry, seamless connection between different living zones. Someone even jokingly asked for check in reception.
We are delighted, beyond that, this comfortable space helped throughout the "circuit breaker" and WFH period.

We collected our keys before covid period and we were having a hard time finding an ID firm that lives up to our expectations. Then we chanced upon Nicholas from Interior Times and on our first meet up, he was immediately able to provide us with what we are looking at and also at a reasonable price. We are pretty particular on the company's profile but Interior Times is a case trusted firm and we decided to go with Nicholas. Nicholas is also a very responsive and responsible designer with very good design sense. We started our 40K renovation during June period and we were amazed at how fast paced the renovation went despite lack of workers. Nicholas has pre-arranged contractors to be on standby for our project hence we were able to finish it in such a short period of time. I would like to say to all homeowners that if you are looking for a good and responsible ID, Nicholas is the one. Thank you Nicholas and Interior Times for providing such good service.

It was a pleasant journey working with Wein as he understood my needs and is able to make great recommendations.
He is always on the ball on my reno works, even answering my queries at 12 midnight.
Despite the covid season, Wein was able to deliver what he promised. Thank you Wein for all your help in building a comfortable home for me!

Our first and foremost choice was LivSpace as we had heard good reviews about LivSpace from some of our friends back in India!
Shivani, our designer and her team did a great job indeed. She understood our requirement and vision for our home and provided great recommendations. She and her team took care of small details and proposed great designs to us which we instantly loved.
Shivani is highly recommended. If you have her in your project, it will be a success for sure. She is prompt and swift in her action and great in planning.There were some quality gaps from the contractors so she understood our concerns and delivered our house as promised.
All efforts of Shivani and Livspace team are very much appreciated to carefully design and deliver our dream home.

We will definitely recommend Livspace with Shivani and her team to friends.
Thank you so much !
Reviewed by Thomas・Submitted 6 Jul 2020・Project completed Mar 2020・Designer Ernest
My wife and I were looking for an ID and after recommendations from friends and evaluating the quotations from different companies, we chose Singapore Carpentry. Needless to say, it was a wonderful experience. Our designer was thoughtful and attentive towards all of our needs. He answered all of our queries even though we had many questions as we were new to this. He was frank with us and gave constructive feedbacks when some of our ideas were not feasible and discussed how we could change that idea such that it would be plausible. The renovation process was smooth sailing under the supervision of Ernest and we could trust the team to get the work done on time. Workmanship was also good as all our cabinets and wardrobes turned out great and as envisioned. I would say the project was a success as our home looked exactly like we imagined, or even better, thanks to the help of our ID. The price is definitely reasonable for the quality of work. Hence, would definitely recommend to our friends and family!
