After a couple of rounds with several IDs, i decided on Jialux Interior after looking at their portfolio and was assigned Chloe as my ID. Throughout the couple of months, we built great rapport, she was very responsive to my queries and faults (inevitable) were rectified within a short time (even after handover, she went the extra mile to coordinate for touch up works! Thank you so much Chloe!) The final result turned out exactly how we envisioned. Great job, recommended!

Hilda shows great passion in her work and understands our design concept without having to elaborate much. Unlike some of the other IDs we met, she is willing to listen and only recommends ideas which suits your needs, is practical, design-centric and most importantly, within your budget. We engaged Hilda to design our 4 room BTO flat 2 weeks before Chinese New Year. She managed to turnaround the 3D drawings despite the tight timeline. She is very responsive to our request and wouldn’t shy away from any rectification work which were required. She goes the extra mile to even recommend furnitures/accessories which suits our theme which saved us a lot of time trying to deliberate what suits the house most. Hilda remains responsive to our questions even when it was outside of her working hours. I’m so glad we found a friend in the whole renovation journey and highly recommend Hilda if you’re looking for an ID!

We are a couple in our sixties and recently decided to downsize from our house to a resale flat. It was a big life change for us and we wanted not just a reliable renovation contractor but an interior designer who could help us bring our vision for our new home to life. We went with Interior Lab after looking through some of their previous projects and being impressed by their good reviews. We engaged Interior Lab about 3 months before we got the key for our resale flat and gave them a brief description on the theme we wanted for our new, or rather “old” flat, we had bought. Two days later, we got a reply from Pei Lin, a Design Consultant with Interior Lab. Our first appointment was set immediately after. After 2 or 3 meetings / brainstorming sessions, Pei Lin was ready to show us the first virtual mock-up of how our new flat. We were immediately sold. Pei Lin was a joy to work with and a genuine collaborator. She was very receptive to our ideas and needs, while giving us constructive feedback based on her creativity and expertise. Our daughter was studying overseas during the renovation process, so all the communication between her and Pei Lin had to be done over Whatsapp, but even so, Pei Lin was able to visualize and incorporate our daughter’s ideas. Pei Lin is very responsive, meticulous, and clearly passionate about her work. In short, very professional. After each stage of the reno process, she would go through and ensure the workmanship was tiptop before moving on. We are very satisfied with the results of the makeover of our flat and would not hesitate to recommend Pei Lin and Interior Lab. Thank you Pei Lin for making our dream home a reality.

Despite the renovations being held in this period of covid-19, Joannie was a responsive and supportive ID throughout our process. She was able to provide useful inputs to the renovation and the team of workers assembled was able to adjust and support our needs including hacking, wall removals, plumbing, tiling and electrical demands. She was able to follow up closely on our needs and adjust accordingly even when schedules were held back due to worker limits. An overall positive experience. Thanks!

Big thanks to Lara and her team from Carpenter Direct for helping us tirelessly and especially over the weekends and some times into the wee hours, to ensure we could move into our home on time. There was little defect and even then they were promptly resolved with reliability. The team is professional, understanding and completes with timeline promised with good quality. Highly recommend to trust Lara with your home renovation.
