Hi all,

I would like to take this opportunity to thanks to Mr. Kenny for his great job during my house renovation, with his great effort & effective response the overall renovation can be done without any delay. This makes me & my family feel so satisfied and he is reliable the whole renovation regardless the timing.

Of course not only time frame is important, but he’s also listen to what we requirement for our house. As per what he said, don’t try to match the design, but choose for the designs & colour that we like the most, he’s right because we’re the one who stay into the house not him, why don’t we go for something that we like rather than we try to match something that we not really like it.

Once again thank you for getting our home done up so nice, & wish you good luck in your career.

Hi … this is a belated review of our ID Edward Seet from Summit Design Studio whom we engaged for our kitchen renovation.
Although it was only a small project which involved the replacement of the floor/wall tiles and the kitchen cabinets, Edward willingly took on the job after the preliminary discussions were completed.
From my dealings with Edward, I find him to be responsible and committed to his job. Thus, I would highly recommend prospective clients to meet-up with Edward if they have renovation plans in mind. Throughout the renovation process, he also showed his expertise and professionalism in the following areas:

• Attentiveness & Promptness
During the initial meetings, we noted that he was attentive to our requirements and was able to provide practical suggestions in the layout and design of the kitchen eg. the placement of the kitchen sink, the cooker hob, the refrigerator, the open shelves etc.
He was also prompt in coming up with a detailed quotation which enabled us to carry out a comparison against the quotes from other ID firms, as well a 3-D illustration of the “new look” of the kitchen; thus, helping us to visualize the pending transformation.

• Patience
When it was time for the selection of the wall/floor tiles and kitchen cabinet laminates, he was there guiding us patiently, as we thoroughly browsed through wide display of materials at the supplier’s showroom.
He also willingly accompanied us to the showroom a second time (at short notice on a weekend), to review the materials once again, as we were still wavering then; notwithstanding, that the floor tiles from the initial selection were already delivered to us earlier; and were scheduled to be laid the following day.

• Timely Updates & Responsiveness
He provided timely updates on the progress of the renovation after his onsite visits and closely monitored its progress. This puts us at ease as we go about our daily tasks since we could not be present 24/7 to continuously monitor the progress of the ongoing renovation.
When there were minor issues (which is common in practically all renovation jobs), he was quick to respond and would liaise with the respective contractors to rectify them as soon as possible.

• After Sales Service
Recently he popped by at my place to enquire whether there were any remedial actions to be taken thus far. We highlighted to him that there were actually some unsightful patches on the kitchen counter top due to the placement of plastic drawer mats over a period of time. He then said that he would arrange for it to be “re-buffed”, and expeditiously did so within the next 2 days (FOC!!). This was indeed commendable!!

Once again, thanks Edward & Keep Up the Good Work!!

Hi Everybody!

We would like to show our appreciatation for our ID - Andy for his service during our renovation, started in June 2015

He is friendly & very accomodating to our tight working schedule (we usually finish work after 7pm) :deal: He shows no unhappiness even when we had alot of changes during the period. On top of that, he'll constantly remind us of our budget when we want to add this & that which we feel is unlike any other IDs.

The whole reno journey has been smooth, no major hiccups except for our furniture guys WHICH Andy handled very professionally to help us to resolve.
Worksmanship wise, it's better than we thought, after all the housewarmings that we been thru.

Once again, Thank you Andy for beening with us throughout the Reno! We will definitely recommend you to our family & friends! Hope all the best to you & your family!
(P.S. Thanks for the thoughtful hse warming gift as well!) :good: :good: :good:

We got our 4 room CCK BTO keys back in Feb 2015.. This is our first home.
Prior to that we went to several IDs to get reno quotations and Summit Design was one of them.
William Wong was assigned to us. We were really impressed from the first visit. William sat down with us and discussed the things we require for our house.
He sketched it all down for us on the floor plan which made it very clear for us to understand.
After which, we were told that the quotation would be emailed to us within one week but it came very much earlier than expected. We were excited about our new home hence the early reply made us think..hmmph not bad..because some of the other IDS really took longer and with one with no reply.
The quotation was listed in clear breakdown and with optional item whereby it allowed us to make adjustments and considerations according to our budget.
Earlier, we told William about our budget and true enough he worked his quotations with the given budget.
We were really worried about the cost of our reno as we had opted out from the HDB flooring. But his quotation was what we were hoping for. Some others quoted us like double the price citing the flooring and HDB new ruling on the cement screed as a factor for their high quotation.
We were very satisfied with his service by then and decided to engage William’s service for our house renovation. Most importantly, we already felt comfortable and confident with his approach, explanation and response.
Before renovation started, William sent us the renovation schedule so we will know how the renovation would progress. This help a lot so we know how and things would move. William would keep us posted through our whats app chat and we will be easily get through him if we have any doubts.
He was really very patient with us since this is our first home and of course very kanchiong on things. William also recommended and accompanied us to his lights ,kitchen and toilet supplier shops to recee the fixtures we need.
He also recommended their electrician and the aircon installation all under one roof. He assured us that this is non-obligatory for us . We can still look around in the market for all this misc stuffs for comparison but we decided otherwise.
So it was really hassle free for us as William would coordinate all the delivery and installation of the fixtures in our house.
William was also patient with us as we made appointments with him to select our homo tiles at the shops on Sundays and this happened for about 3 times as we were very fickle and undecided on our homo flooring.
If there was any corrections to be made, William will attend to it with his contractors as early as possible so we were not so overly worried.
So yeah, we are really happy with the turn out and we felt the renovation was really valued for money. Of course if we had more cash, we would want to do more but this is the start for our new house. Thank you William for your effort and service so far. We did not regret engaging your service and we would definitely recommend your services to our friends and relatives for their homes.

We tried our luck and call Summit design and suprisely they (Kenny) actually taking up and present to us idea and it is within our tight budget. With his professional services and hard work, finally I have a new set of kitchen cabinet to complete my kitchen. Now I looking another tiny project in my house with Kenny again.

Hi, We bought our executive apartment in August last year and were looking for a good ID firm to help us with the renovation (Our previous renovation contractor for the old house was rather lousy so we decided to do a bit more shopping this time round). I remembered that few months back, we attended the house warming party of my wife’s friend and we both thought that the design and quality was rather good. As such, we contacted her friend and got the contact of her ID. The ID firm was Summit Design Studio and Joewi was the ID. We met Joewi subsequently and could sense that he was very professional and non-imposing. He was also patient and listened to what we had in mind though at that time we were still undecided as we were planning to do a Fengshui audit of the house. When we invited him to be there during the Fengshui audit, he readily agreed though at that point, we had not sign up for his services yet. On the day of the audit, we were quite taken aback as the Fengshui master suggested an overhaul of the existing design (We bought the house because we like the design and had paid a high COV for it) though the house Fengshui was good. Knowing that this will be a massive project (in terms of cost), Joewi suggested to come up with 2 set of quotation for our consideration; one taking into consideration cost (do the critical ones but not everything the Fengshui master suggested) and the other the total revamp (according to the Fengshui audit). As we wanted more options, we decided to source for other ID firms. However, after looking at a few others we still prefer Joewi’s service. In fact, we waited for more than 2 weeks for a quotation from one ID firm in Balestier (also found on Renotalk). Joewi reverted quite promptly with the quotation a few days after the audit and I must say that we were quite “troublesome” as we literally went through the quotation line by line, item by item to try to reduce our cost. Throughout our discussion, Joewi maintained his patience and tries to accommodate our request within his means. At the end, we decided to sign up with Summit Design as we felt more comfortable with him and we were happy with his design and service attitude (and price as well). We started our renovation in Nov last year and we were happy with our decision to use Joewi. We could see that he is a very detailed ID with high expectations of his work and would immediately rectify any work found to be unsatisfying. On many occasions when we called him in the night to feedback on the work, he was prompt to response and would see that something is done the next day. In terms of the design, he also gave many useful ideas from design concept to furnishing. As we wanted to move in before CNY and on the date given by the Fengshui master, we would always pressure him to expedite the project. He would tactfully tell us that he would try his best but would not compromise the quality and standards of the project. Our renovation was completed in Jan, a week before CNY and we were very happy with the work. We also received good comments from visitors on the design of the house. Overall, we are happy with Joewi’s work and would not hesitate to refer him to our friends. Keep up the Good Job Joewi!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for project managing our house renovation through the whole two months period leading up to Christmas.

Thank you for patiently guiding us and coordinating all the contractors through the whole time. We really appreciate your patience and professionalism. Your diligence, service-oriented mind-set has really come through. Despite the many difficulties that we came across, which is part and parcel of house renovation, you have tackled them with calm and poise.

I bought a resale 5-room flat in Sengkang and engaged Summit’s William Wong as my ID.

Previously, we have heard horror stories from friends regarding their reno experience. However, our reno experience with WILLIAM was pleasant and enjoyable.
Our was considered major reno as we knock down every single tile and carpentary.. basically redid the whole flat.
Why I recommend William:

1) He is experienced and has the relevant contacts. From buying tiles, to plumber, to electrician, to carpenter, to aircon, to toilet accessories etc… Though the prices of contacts he recommend might not be the cheapest in the market, at least u can leave the coordination to him. From delivery dates, to date of fitting, to making changes when necessary. You can leave it to him…
2) He take down notes of your comments.. this is very impt !
3) He is somewhat a perfectionist… for eg when we see that certain tiles were not properly laid… and when the plumber fixed the water heater at an awkward position… and when the drainage cover is white plastic when our tiles are dark, he agrees with us to make the changes even if it means knocking down and replacing tiles and changing to stainless steel drainage cover….
4) He is very enthusiastic and keen to learn. When we bought a bidet (the kind to wash your buttocks) from his contacts, he asks questions and learnt how to fixed it so that he can teach his plumber how to fix it to our toilet bowl.
5) He picks up ALL our calls. We were very excited about our reno and checks on the progress almost every single day…. If we see something not right or require changes, we will call him at night and weekends, and even when he’s on leave and overseas. He always picks up our calls or will call us back within an hour if he missed the call.
6) Good after sales service. We have problems with our toilet bowl such that the water in the tank appears to leak (dunno to where). He called to check if his contacts came to fix the problem and if not, he will call them personally to chase them.

Foremost before I proceed, I would like to sincerely express my utmost appreciation for a job well done to Gavin Lee.

I had bought my 3 bedroom HDB in Marine Drive couple of months back. This flat was in a desperate need of "revamp"and like a typical kiasu Singaporean, I had to do my shopping for the cheapest, best deal.
After going through several of them, my sis-in-law, who just had her flat done up suggested I speak to Ben and Gavin (they did her flat). I was agreeable as her flat looks great. However, being a skeptic, I was still doubtful. I still had to compare prices, chat with designer after designer. Finally, I made my decision with Summit. Their pricing was by far the most reasonable. Mind you not the cheapest ( I would not trust the cheapest ). Their works in my sis-in-law's flat spoke distinctly of their skill and talent as well. And she spoke highly of Gavin as well.
Before they took the job, I had told Gavin that I need to move in a months time as i need to return my rented flat. He calculated his schedule and told me straight that only the bedrooms, bathroom and toilet will be ready. He had kept to his word and delivered! How often can you find that in contractors.
Above that being a female, I am always changing my mind over colors and designs rather often. He never once complained but always does so with a smile. I was impress with the service rendered. He is always there to offer his advice, always giving me suggestions and taking down notes if I don't like certain design or color.
Even like yesterday and today, I had trusted him 100 percent with my house keys to allow him to enter it to fix up the grills, glass door and do some touch up.
I have heard many horror stories of how unreliable contractors can be. I considere myself really lucky that I had been entrusted with a young, efficient, vibrant, talented, honest , hardworking man to work on my flat.

Thank you Gavin and if I can i would like to post the pics of my flat before and after to show everyone what a great job you have done!! If anyone would need verification on his works, I am ready to stand up for him!

I would like to express my sincerest thanks to Mr James for doing up our home with the upmost care, dedication and patience. Making a home is never an easy task, especially when there are anxious home owners like me. Engaging the service of James from Summit Design Studio has been a great decision for all of us in the family.

James is extremely polite, helpful, filled with initiative and his designs are certainly appealing. He is a very patient designer, as well as accommodating. Another plus point is he's very considerate towards the elders especially and will plan out something and discuss with you his proposed ideas.

This testimonial goes to show that all of us are very happy with the overall effect and my spouse and I are extremely elated with our new home. My parents praised his work, and the fact that he is very easy to work with. He will finalize the work of your dream home by conceptualizing your ideas as well as streamlining them with his creative design implementation and adding more suggestions along the way to give you even more choices and options.

At the end of the day, we are happy customers, and will not hesitate to use James's service again in future. We are very delighted to not only have a beautiful home, but also a place where we can relax and call our own, and enjoy the total functionality that James has made for us. Thank you, Mr James for everything. We love your work, patience and dedication.

This is a testimonial to the ID, William Wong of Summit Design Studio. We highly appreciate of what he has done for the renovation of our resale house recently, from the pre-qualification, design, negotiation, renovation work until the delivery of the house.

We interviewed 5 Interior Design Studios (including one of the most famous one in SG) and Summit Design Studio was our final selection. Here are the reasons "why":

1. Attention to details - all items were well categorised and itemised, with transparency and honesty. We were thoroughly impressed with the detailed quotes, professionally drawn Reno Plan and excellent execution of Project Management Implementation Plan.

2. Patience - William came to our house a few times, even before the handover from the last owner. We made several visits to talk over the materials and the differences. The design plan was requested to be revised. He demonstrated great patience and professionalism in listening, understanding and meeting to our needs.

3. Quality contractors - William ensure that high quality contractors were engaged and they delivered their work seamlessly and on time. For any corrections, he has the "power" to activate and align with the contractors for immediate remedies. In other words, he has the high credibility and good relationship amongst his team of contractors.

4. Hands-on - William is a very hands-on person and he demonstrated great experience in the industry. Should there be any doubt or discrepancy, he will personally review the case and get the things fixed quickly. Well we do not expect knows everything, he seems to be very knowledgeable to a lot of building materials and be open-minded to explore any new one. For example, we introduced one new table top material from Italy. He did not push away (like some other IDs) and yet explore more with the local distributor and his other colleagues.

5. Responsive - one of the greatest concerns of many house owners is the response time of the ID. As some of us may be rushing with time to move in, or be away a lot for biz trips, we would expect a fast response from the ID. William was very quick in responding to any text messages, emails or phone calls. He always managed our expectations well.


Overall, we have an extraordinary experience in deploying Summit and William's professional service. Rest assured we have no hesitation in highly recommending William as your ID!!! Feel free to let us know if you need any info.

We highly recommend Carol and her team of sub-contractors. Carol especially was very attentive to our requirements. She is non-judgemental and does not impose her ideas on us. She takes note of the minutest details and is very prompt is addressing our concerns. She gave regular updates and sent us photos of the progress of our place when we told her that we could not be on site every day. We felt at ease leaving the entire renovation in her hands. in fact, we were so pleased with her service that we engaged Summit again to do minor renovations for another place. She is reliable and can be trusted to deliver good quality work. Thanks to Carol, our dream home is now a reality.

I would like to commend Nicholas for his after sales service. After living in the current place for more than a year, one of the rooms was infested with wall bugs. I sms Nicholas to enquire if he has any knowledge on method to get rid of the problem. He was not obligated to find the solution for me since it has been more than a year. However, he checked with his contacts and gave the advice that was spot on in solving the problem. Following his advice, the walls are now as good as new and the wall bugs are gone. I am indeed grateful to him for finding the solution for me.

We are writing this to thank Ms. Carol Lim for the great job done as the ID for the renovation of our house. We had made the decision of hiring her as our ID after we read some good comments ab her at renotalks. One of her customers who wrote his renovation blog on Renotalk also had good recommendation of her work.

It was a pleasant journey with Coral during the course of our renovation work. Despite the some hiccups during the work, Carol was very professional and solution-oriented. In fact she was very prompt to reply queries be it sms or phone call, this we appreciate very much as we know some or most ID are not very responsive to sms or phone call from owner.

Even for after renovation service, Carol is still very attentive to our request to some touch up work. Overall from my experience dealing with her, I'll say Carol is very professional, responsible, solution-oriented.

In short we are very satisfied with her work and will not hesitate to recommend her to our relatives/ friends who want to renovate their house.

Last but not least, Good Job and Thanks Carol

We are happy to engage services from Summit Design Studio and having Denise Tan as our ID for our 5 room flat unit, that is of 30 years old.
The stories of those bad experience with those irresponsible and dishonest renovation company that we read from renotalk forum, attribute to our selection on the ideal renovation company. We werent so confident with the Company at the beginning , doubtful of the positive comments that was read on the forum assuming that those were fraud and part of gimmicks.

Our 1 1/2 month experience with the Summit Design Studio , especially our ID , Denise Tan was good and assuring . The unit that we bought was a 30 years old one that condition was bad that require a lot of work ...

You can imagine how big the cost of renovation will be. We are glad to have Denise Tan as ID , friendly and patient. He give us his invaluable advices and about cost saving that not most ID would do . He would also respond to our calls and sms even when it very late in the hour... And have his men to attend to the matter without any hesistation.

He is also patient with us , because we were indecisive at the design. In fact, the 3D drawing was changed more than 3 times, and finalized to suit our feng shui requirement.

Apart from the good workmanship , it is the attidue and the service that stands out.

Many IDs whom I approached are not very willing to serve us because we still do not know our keys collection date. Carol is very different as she served us with sincerity and followed up subtlety for many months before we confirmed her before our key collection.
During the renovation works, she has been very proactive in sending us emails to inform the work schedule and everything was done timely. Some hiccups did happened in between but she is always fast in service recovery and never did she disappoint us when we faced challenges.
In short, I think as a first time house owner, we are very lucky to meet her to help us with our renovation and she is one lady with great sense of reponsibility and experience. I am satisfied with summit design workmanship of my carpentry works too.

Thumbs up to our young and vibrant ID, Kenny Cheng ! Our search for an ID firm begins about 8 months before we collected our keys. Taking our time, we read the review in the forums etc. and shortlisted a few. In the end we selected Summit as we felt their designs were appealing and rather unique. Kenny proposed several options to meet our financial needs and provided us valuable opinions in the process. Time was not on our side by the time we collected our keys and having to vacate our former flat in one and half months time. However, Kenny was confident and assured us he can get it done and indeed we moved into our new house exactly one month after renovation started on our standard flat, with flooring, ceiling, furniture works etc. all done up ! Kenny planned the project schedule very well and all works were carried out according to schedule with some of the works completed even much earlier. We are really lucky to engage Summit and Kenny as our ID, we really salute their professionalism in expediting the renovation works, allowing us to settle in our dream house comfortably !

I would like to thank Nicholas and James for the good work done. They are professional and prompt in answering and adjusting the design throughout the whole project. They are fast to resolve and act on all kinds of touch up I requested. The whole team including the carpentry and electrical Dept worked closely and handled over to the next team seamlessly. Overall, it was a great experience working with Nicholas and James.

We would like to express our appreciation to Carol for making our home renovation a fuss-free experience. After obtaining quotations and speaking to several interior designers, we decided to engage Carol’s services as we found her to be conscientious, patient and willing to listen to our views. Unlike some IDs, she is also able to clearly remember our needs. Pricing is competitive as well.

As the project progressed, we grew even more convinced that we had made the right decision. Carol is always very prompt in responding to our queries and requests even late at night, and has shown remarkable patience and understanding in the face of frequent and at times last-minute changes we made to the designs and materials used.

As in all renovation projects, minor glitches are inevitable. When alerted, Carol always takes steps to resolve the issues expeditiously. We are also very grateful that Carol managed to pack the fairly extensive renovation that involves remodeling a toilet, hacking and retiling the living room and kitchen, fabrication and installation of new cabinets, electrical works and painting, all within the rather tight six-week deadline given by the condominium management. Great job, Carol!

We would like to recommend Johnson Paul of Summit Design Studio for home renovation jobs. He helped us to create a simple elegant theme for our home that we have been planning for.

From the very beginning of the renovation, Johnson patiently listened to our needs and requirements. We were impressed by his professionalism and work ethics, which makes this renovation experience different. He helped us to plan and create our preferred theme and maximize the usage of limited space. During the renovation he followed up with details closely. He contributed good ideas with regard to the layout and choices of furniture and fixtures with his expertise. He also went extra mile to attend to smalls issues e.g. cleaning and maintenance.

Renovation is always stressful and it is impossible to expect any home renovation process to be 'perfect'. When some issues surfaced Johnson was very penitent with our complaints, attended to the problems in time, actively seek for mitigations and solutions, and ensured the end-results met our expectations.

One of another important reasons why we choose Summit Design Studio is that their professional services are even extended throughout five-year warranty period.

We finally did our home with Johnson 's great help. We recommend him for his high level of patience, accommodating and attentive to our needs and feedback.

Both my husband and I were very grateful for Ms. Carol Lim and her team for giving us a fuss-free and enjoyable renovation journey. She had turned an empty Punggol BTO 4-room unit into a haven we return to everyday.

Even before we signed on the agreement contract, we had been conversing for close to 4 months for quotations and space-planning. Carol was never once pushy to close the deal. In contrary, she answered our queries attentively, patiently and efficiently. In addition, she shared plenty of practical ideas, without compromising the outlook of our unit.

Upon signing of contract, she generated a tentative work schedule and sent it to us on the same day despite it was a weekend. Throughout the entire renovation process, Carol updated us on a timely basis, needless for us to push her for any outstanding jobs. Small hiccups were unavoidable but her professionalisms solved issues almost immediately. Carol understood our busy work schedules and only consulted us for tasks which required our attention as home owners, such as purchasing of furnishings and appliances. She even took good care in ensuring our unit is in a safe condition at all times.

According to friends who had their renovations done by other firms and my father with renovation background, all had praises for workmanship. Though we had a small issue with tiny patch of laminate, Carol arranged for rectification almost immediately. Family members and friends were impressed with her efficiency and initiation as many other IDs or contractors could have simply brushed this aside. Even fastidious family members and friends recommended her for the good job!

In a nutshell, we enjoyed ourselves tremendously in this renovation process guided by Carol and her team. Her ideas, carefulness, attention, promptness and trustworthiness allowed us to simply sit back and be amazed an empty unit’s transformation to a cosy home.

I did my renovation with Summit Design Studio and the ID I engaged was ID Johnson Paul and I must say he did a good job!!

( PREPARATION PERIOD )
When I first met Johnson for a quotation, I was overwhelmed by presentation skills. I still remember he had that very confident expression and he was so fluent in his speech that I that he was just a salesperson ( which alot of ID firm does by having 3 different department of sales, design & coordinating ) BUT after comparing to 6 other IDs, I realize that others did not give as much information and they are only interested in getting cash deposits. That's when I realize ID Johnson was the only one who gives me a stable understanding of the works involved through his presentation and he was not pushy of getting the cash deposits. To be honest, his quote was not the cheapest among all that I had gathered but I feel more secure leaving the renovation works to Johnson because of his high level of knowledge and commitment during our meet-ups that's why I chose to engaged him as my choice of ID.

During the period of material selection and design configuration, Johnson was very patient in explaining the details, characteristics & budgeting advice to me as a layman. He had a wide knowledge of materials that he always find alternative choices for me to choose from and eventually his advice turns out great n beautiful in the finished work.

( RENOVATION PROCESS )
During the process of the renovation, He always update me of the progress without me chasing him and as time when I do some site visiting, works was always on schedule as promised. But unforeseen situation does happens and when such happens, Johnson always inform me of the situation and most importantly he always comes with a solution. He was efficient in resolving the situations and he always solved the situation without me having any headache over it. His promises of good workmanship, good material & a beautiful home was true enough and was delivered wonderfully.

Towards the end of the renovation, there were some defects thats needs to be touch-up and rectified. Johnson had no qualms in rectifiying the defects and he personally inspect the touch-up and ensure its satisfactory. Finally when the renovations is done n completed, He even went through the efforts to assist me in selection and placement of furnitures and accessories. He had great vision of the overall and final end result and that was proven when I held my house warming party after shift-in of all furnitures. All my friends and relatives who came by was amazed by the beautiful settings and design layout. A million thanks Johnson!

( REMARKS )
I will have no problem recommending ID Johnson of Summit Design Studio to others. Thanks so much for the great help that was delicated to my unit. Thank you

I like to thank Vincent from summit design for doing a great job on my house renovation at whampoa drive .

Having received several quotations from several IDs, I signed up with Vincent on our 2nd consult with him as we found him to be very approachable, and his quotations for my 4 room resale flat was reasonable.

As mu ID, he was amicable, cheerful and was swift to answer all our doubts and questions during the renovation process. Furthermore, he went the extra mile to help us with small requests such as installing blinds for us and drilling holes in the walls for us to hang certain things.

Vincent remained contactable through the renovation process and coordinated the renovation smoothly and efficiently with his fellow workers that made the process a smooth one.

Whenever hiccups arise and confusions arose , Vincent was steadfast enough to make necessary ammendments to help us in the renovation process.When my wife and I were busy at work, Vincent helped us oversee the renovation process and helped us seek good deals with the electrical works and gave us good advice on the type of toilet accessories and lightings to purchase.

The whole renovation process took 6 weeks to complete of which my wife and I were satisfied with the new look of the place. Even after the renovation was completed, Vincent remained contactable and was happy to help us touch up some minor changes to the house, including helping us to create a small partition compartment for us to install new air conditioners. Never once did he complain but abided to our requests.

I like to strongly recommend Vincent to any other couples out there seeking a good ID to help with the renovation process. Kudos to Vincent and summit design for their help! Keep up the good work =)

We are glad that we have chosen Carol Lim as the ID for our house renovation.

Chanced upon a few compliments on her through the Reno Talk forum and
decided to drop her an email requesting for quote. She replied within
a day and promised a quote within 5 days, which was delivered. First
impression was good.

Fast forward, we signed the contract with her after 2 months from our
first correspondence. We find her quote comprehensive as compared to
others, and pricing was reasonable. During the 2 months, we
communicated frequently over any new ideas and amendments. As many
have mentioned, Carol is prompt in her reply, and also impresses us
with her patience and non-pushy attitude. She is also able to provide
practical advice when we are in doubts.

Renovation was completed quite smoothly. Although some minor hiccups
like electrical points not in correct positions, grouting lines not
clearly aligned, minor chip off of solid surface top in the toilet,
but all these were rectified promptly once we alerted this to Carol.

There was some delay on our part as we keep changing our mind on the
toilet basin. Carol is very understanding and tried to reschedule
timing with her contractors, so as to ensure a smooth renovation.

During her routine check, she discovered that our window guy made a
crack in the completed tile while fixing the wrought iron gate. She
immediately get her tiler to check and rectify the problem with no
extra cost to us or the window guy. Thumb up for her professionalism !

Even after handover of the place, she was prompt to check out the
washing area when we mentioned that a PVC extension was missing. She
immediately arranged for the tiler to come back to rectify the issue
within a week.

In a nutshell, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Carol to fellow new
house owners to consider engaging her service !

We have had the pleasure of having Donny See handle our recent renovation exercise in January/February this year.

The requirement is simple enough - that we could move into our home within a tight renovation period of 35 days, of which about 10 to 14 days fell under the usually "no work" policy due to the Chinese New Year. Granted, we didn't go for a full overhaul (which would not have been possible anyway due to the urgency) but there were bathrooms to re-do, floors to polish, walls to paint, lightings, air con works, electrical works, etc. etc. Donny wasted no time in helping us apply for permits, shopped for the necessary stuff before we collected our keys. He even helped us with the final inspection of our flat with the previous owners, looking out for issues which our untrained eyes failed to see and the moment we got our keys, all works went into full swing. The careful planning of scheduled works among the different parties was closely monitored by Donny who kept us constantly updated with what was going on, including emailing us pictures of ongoing works which certainly helped us to visualize the progress of our renovation. In short, we felt comfortable with Donny and have faith in him to help us get our home ready even if it looked like time was against us.

This was not a big $$$ project but we could see that that did not make a difference to Donny's commitment to ensure a speedy and smooth renovation for us. He was always contactable, answered all our queries patiently, helped resolved all issues that cropped up efficiently and promptly and kept up with this level of professionalism even months after the official handover.

He is affable by nature and coupled with his knowledge and experience in the industry, I can certainly recommend him without the slightest reservation.

Overdued testimonial. Nevertheless, would like to take this opportunity to convey my special thanks to Donny See.

Why I shortlisted him : He was one of the few that took my fengshui considerations into proposal and work within my limited budget.

Why I engaged him: He is very responsive and I felt comfortable with him. Able to provide practical reno advice.

Reno progress: Very smooth with minimal or zero hassle for me. Kept me constantly updated and I felt comfortable enough not to be on-site most of the times. Am pleased with him and his team's work. Assisted me in the furniture furnishings and very accommodative to my requirements. Completed the project timely as well.

Reno outcome: Happy with the simple yet cozy home. .

Hi,

When we got the keys to our new apartment in the Kembangan area, we checked around with friends on who they could recommend for ID services. An office colleague recommended William Wong of Summit Design Studio. She said that Summit's services were reliable and cost-friendly, and that William provided good service to them.

We subsequently contacted William and dropped by Summit's studio at Joo Chiat for a chat. Our concerns were on how to maximize space in our small apartment, overcome some design flaws, and ensure a lasting classic design. William was full of ideas to support us, and presented various options for us to choose from, also keeping in mind the need to keep within our budget.

Once we settled on a suitable design framework and costing, William very quickly put his team to work with measurments, color selection, etc. He also supported us with introductions to lighting and curtain vendors, and even provided input on where we could source storeroom racks! No item was too small for him to support us with, and we were impressed by WIlliam's responsiveness and willingness to go the extra mile for his customers. As part of the professional approach taken by William, we were provided with a project timeline, and this he monitored and managed to closely. He also worked behind the scenes to ensure that all components came together smoothly, from carpentry works, to painting, to installation of fans, etc. We were very relieved not to have to deal with all the coordination this would have required if we went solo.Totally worth the effort and cost in getting Summit's and WIlliam's support.

Needless to say, the final outcome was to our satisfaction, and we are happily enjoying our new home.We also appreciated William's follow-up support on another issue that came up after we moved in, which was not related to Summit's ID services. Indeed, no regrets on our end in engaging Summit Design Studio as our preferred ID provider, and we especially thank William for his consistent support and efforts to deliver our home to our satisfaction.

He never failed to attend to all the faults that surfaced and was patient with our complaints.

As a matter of fact, we were so stringent with the final paint work, kitchen table top and bathroom showers that we would simply call Sheldon at the slightest imperfection.

But no matter whether it was an unsatisfactory job done by the painter or contractor, he would ensure that the end-result met our expections! Kuddos to Sheldon and we strongly recommend him.

Dear Lead Designer of Summit Design Studio:
Through Johnson as our Interior Designer, Summit Design Studio has helped us create the home that we have been planning for. From the very beginning of the home design process, Johnson was instrumental in creating a cosy home that required a special, expert touch to maintain a classy and exquisite feel in a limited space.
Johnson’s knowledge of modern and contemporary furniture and decorative style, and his excellent resources for furniture, fabrics, trims, and fixtures combined to give us just the look we desired.
With a very short deadline, it was essential to maintain control of a high volume of details and specifics while moving the project forward. Johnson’s strong organisational skills started us off with detailed floor plan and furniture layouts and followed through to the details of specific fabrics and trims. Johnson also kept us apprised of the project schedule, costs vs. budget, installation plans, and check-ins of progress at the house at every stage.
Johnson has the gift for finding the perfect piece to complete the rooms, the hall and even our balcony. His skilled eye always found just the right colour, shade and pattern to complement the design of the room. Johnson’s ability to work effectively with his contractors (electricians, deliveries, etc) was a critical success factor, keeping our project on time and on budget.
Though we started our renovation project with great enthusiasm, we quickly learned that the number of options and decisions that are involved can make the design project overly complicated and burdensome to the typical homeowner. We were glad to have been able to rely on Johnson’s expertise to research the options and focus the suggestions on those that were most appropriate for our home and lifestyle, saving us much time and energy and making the process more enjoyable for us.
Johnson was a delight to work with, always responsive to our needs and considerate of our tastes, yet providing an expert eye for making our home design and decor work and look its best. He is still in contact with us, providing suggestions and help despite have completed the design project. Our dream home is beautiful, thanks to Johnson and Summit Design Studio.


Sincerely,

Dream apartment comes true

I am writing to share my renovation experience and to express my heartfelt thanks to Mr Johnson Paul of Summit Design for making my dream home come true.

Choosing the Right Interior Designer for My First Bachelor Pad
In March this year, I bought a resale HDB 3 room flat in Clementi.

I have always loved vintage chinese furnitures. For my bachelor pad, I wanted to create a modern boutique hotel suite plus vintage antique chinese furniture kind of fushion look and feel.

This would mean that I would not have much carpentry work nor built-in cabinets done – not even kitchen cabinets. Moreover, I wanted my kitchen basin and wash basins to be fitted exactly for my height – for i am quite tall at 177cm. For a small and customised renovation project like this, I needed to find the right renovation contractor who could fully understand my requirements. My budget for the entire renovation works is not big, within $20K.

I was mindful of the choice of renovation contractor – as i had been warned by many friends that most renovation contractors are run by “Ah Bengs” whose services are far from professional. I asked a close friend, Corie Lee for recommendation, as she had just renovated her new marital home in Sengkang. She recommended Summit Design.

I took up her recommendation and, as it turned out, it was the best decision I made for my new home. Here's why.

Professional & Friendly Service, Great Workmanship
My interior designer was Johnson Paul. He made a good first impression as he presented himself professionally and was not “Beng” at all.

He offered several good advice and suggestions with regard to the design concepts for my renovation. Most importantly, he understood what i wanted and delivered it. This was crucial as I could then enjoy a peace of mind; there were no surprises such as when what was built/done was not what you wanted – a common problem when dealing with fly-by-night type of renovation contractors.

In the course of the renovation, Johnson updated me via Whatsapp with pictures he took of the renovation works. This saved me time as I get up-to-the-minute updates of the renovation progress, and the assurance that things were being done correctly as discussed.

In particular, the kitchen sink he proposed for me was truly one-of-a-kind. Fully fabricated from cement with a raw industrial look, it looks like an exquisite piece of art - except that this artpiece is actually functional and useful! I do everything there - wash dishes, cut my fruits and prepare my food, and loved it!

The simple no-frills design went well with the rest of the look of my apartment, and allows my vintage furnitures to stand out on its own.

On his own initiative, Johnson also added nice finishing touches like great selection of fabricated wood material to conceal my kitchen pipes, as well as tasteful light switches and sink drainages.

Going the extra mile
Johnson also does not only deal with the renovation works itself. He was also always on the ball watching out for any other potential problems, such as my fussy new neighbours. Johnson took the initiative to wash and mop the floors of the common corridor at night after the workers completed their work, to placate an elderly neighbour who was particularly fussy about “footprints” on the floor.

Johnson and his workers also took the initiative to work till 2am on the night before the scheduled handover, so that he can handover my apartment to me on my favourable fengshui date. The renovation was completed, and the apartment handed over to me on 26 July 2012.

Even after the renovation was done, Johnson offered advice and suggestions on the layout and placement of my furnitures and fixtures, so that i can get just the right look I want for my apartment.

Highly Recommended
Over the past two weeks, my family and friends came over to my new apartment, and they all loved the renovation done. I am very happy with the excellent workmanship for the renovation done by Summit Design, and the awesome work put out by Johnson.

I would not hesitate to recommend Johnson of Summit Design to any friend who might want to get their house renovated.

Well done, Johnson!

Yours sincerely,
-Marc Wang

Dear William & Summit Members,

We are a happy couple who recently moved into our new Nest and all this is made possible with William’s professional help from Summit Design Studio (SDS).

Having received our keys in Feb 2012, we started sourcing online and short listed various IDs and contractors for our home renovation. After much researched and recommendation from the online community, we decided to contact William for the initial meet-up and quotation. Within 3 days we received the 1st quotation and over a span of 3 weeks, we negotiated to a final quotation and we got the renovation started!

Pricing and quotation is probably the Number One concern and skepticism for any new home owners. We consulted a few friends in the ID industries and our minds were put at ease when they concurred that the pricing offered by William is reasonable and in fact a good deal was offered to us!

Design and layout is special to every new home and William has provided valuable and practical insights to help us materialize our ideas into reality. We worked closely with him on a few design drafts and he has been accommodating to our requests. Most importantly, he prioritize what we wanted as home owner’s and was quick to understand our creative quirks and make it happen with a “Can Do” attitude.

Workmanship inspection was up next and William gracefully offered us a visit to one of his previous project homeowner’s lodging. The renovation was done nicely and carpentry and tiling was meticulously done. Having recognized the quality delivered, we expected the same for our renovation and I’m glad our expectations were well met.

Renovation Works was a breeze and an enjoyable process. As busy working adults, William provided us with a peace of mind as we focus on our weekday work while he managed the renovation schedule. Apart from the basic coordination of delivery and installations, he went the extra mile to introduce various suppliers for electrical lightings, bath/kitchen accessories for us to better understand market pricing and make our selections.

Touching-up and Delivery finally arrived for us after 7 weeks of renovation. Throughout the process, we as fussy owners have been pointing out mishaps and changes during our impromptu checking and William has been patient and quick to rectify them within the next few days. Rain or shine and even on weekends, we were able to reach out to William on his mobile and he provided the regular updates which really helped to cement our trust.

After sales service - We are exceptionally grateful that SDS holds true to their assurance in quality after sales service. There are 2 minor carpentry issues due to mechanical faults and understanding our anxiety as homeowners, William quickly ordered inspection and replacement to rectify the problems within the week free-of-charge.

We will like to offer our heartfelt appreciation to William for his professionalism and commitment to renovating our Nest. Having moved in for about 3 weeks now, we are still amazed how smoothly the entire renovation process was completed. We are glad that we invested our trust in William and will definitely recommend him to our friends and others who are looking for a quality ID!

Thank you William for your hard work and putting up with our “demands”…hehe ?

To Mr Donny See and his team @ Summit Dezign.

A big “THANK YOU” to Donny See and his team for a job well done.

Initially I was apprehensive with the renovation work as I have certain vague ideas of what I want and within my budget and the standard of workmanship must be up to mark. With Donny and his team’s help, my flat was transformed into what I had in mind. Donny patiently explained to me the technical aspects and offered various ideas and alternatives in our project. He helped me to develop and visualize the design concepts and improved on them! His team of contractors were very professional, efficient, cheerful and helpful. The result is a house which has been well renovated to a standard which has exceeded my family’s expectations and we are very happy and appreciative of the efforts put in by Donny and his team. Donny and his team did a fabulous job.

I will not hesitate to recommend Donny See and his team to anyone who wants a renovation job done well and within a good timeframe, as Donny is very proactive and everything goes smoothly as scheduled..

cheers,

We have been through a numbers of renovators and their quotes. But we got to know about Donny through a number of renotalk blogs journeys. We met up with him 3 weeks prior getting our key for quotation in mid April 2012. We needed the new place to be completed in 2 months. With his reno experiences, he resolved our tight schedule and design and sticking close to our budget. The Reno works was able to start immediately and smoothly. He has the initiatives to update us on the reno works and even when he went out of town. He is responsible, contactable and responsive to the defects informed and follow up on the progress. We are very pleased with our home design and our kids are always happy to return home.

For our ID, Donny See
We would like to express our deepest appreciation to Donny See from Summit Design who oversaw the Reno of our 5 room HDB. Way before we received the keys for our dream home, we have started the search for THE crucial person whom we will become very dependent on in the days to come.
After scouring through countless forums/blogs like renotalk, we narrowed down our choices to a few IDs and contractors. Donny stood out for us with his honesty, enthusiasm and most importantly he was not pushy and hard selling. We have not been the easiest of clients as we have a specific idea of what our Reno should be like and have made him revised his quotation again and again . He has been very patient in trying to incorporate all our wants throughout the initial planning process. During the renovation, Donny was always there to ensure the smooth running of the work in progress... He was even more anal than us... always checking on the worker’s workmanship and making corrections in areas then we thought wasn’t a problem.
He had even gone beyond his call of duty by driving me everywhere, helping me search for the perfect furniture while not breaking the bank! Will not forget the bargaining you did to get my chairs! He is indeed a man of action, if we asked something, no matter how small; he made sure things get done promptly. Even after the hand-over, if we made a call to him and asked to fix something (like cracks in the wall), he would immediately arrange on his side to help us.
After having had a few housewarmings, we always get feedbacks like our place is cozy, classy beautiful. (Not solely homeowner’s pride I swear)
After hearing many horror stories about unresponsive and unscrupulous IDs , I am so glad we made the right decision picking him as our ID. To this day he has become more than a just an ID, he has become one that we are honored to call a friend. I will strongly recommend him to any home owner who wishes to create their piece of heaven!

Hi everyone, I too engaged Summit Design Studio as my ID firm and my ID was Dennis Tan

Just wanted to share the wonderful experience that I have with Dennis throughout the renovation process.

From the initial 3D drawings which I have asked him to amend couple of times to the in-between minor hiccups during the whole process, Dennis has always been patient and professional. Most importantly, he was always very easy to reach and you could always SMS or whatspp him. The minor hiccups were promptly rectified and the whole renovation process took only one month!

The carpenter, electrician and plumber that Dennis engaged were all very punctual and did their work professionally. Even when rectifying the minor hiccups, never once was there any complaint from any of them. Of course, much credit has to be given to Dennis for the well-planned schedule and the liasing done.

Even after the whole renovation was done, Dennis still gave me a call to ask how was everything which was a very nice gesture as this meant Dennis cares about after-sales service.

It has been almost a month since I have shifted in and all has been good thus far.

I have already recommended Dennis to some of my friends and will most certainly go to him again in future if I need any more renovations.

Dennis's HP is 9354 9076.

Hi folks,

Just wanna share my experience with Summit Design. We engaged their services in July 2011.
Writing this review now cos just wanted to wait and see how their workmanship copes with our daily abuses. So far so good.

Ours is a 5 room flat, we brought our floor plan and went to the show room in Joo Chiat Road.

Our Interior Designer is Dennis Tan, who greeted us cheerfully and at the end of the discussion, we had a rough idea of what our home's gonna be like. We did look around a fair bit, but we were impressed with Dennis' good knowledge of design and ability to integrate our ideas into something visible on the floor plan.
He has a non-pushy attitude that allowed us to take our time to settle all we wanted. We signed contract within two or three weeks and soon after work started. He was responsible in the sense that if our ideas breached HDB guidelines, he would voice it out clearly to enlighten us.

We engaged Summit's contractors for floor tiles, electric and plumbing work. If you are engaging them, pls do that too.
It might be a bit more pricy, but when it comes to coordination and aftersales support, the few more dollars is well worth it.
(Our ceiling fan in the living room lost speed 1 and 2 about a month ago and after sitting on it for a while, I sent an sms to Dennis and he got the Fan company guys to come and fix it for me last saturday morning.
The whole issue was settled within a week...amazing!!)

We did the following for our place.
- hack all the floor tiles in living room and passageway and lay bigger glossy homogenous tiles. (looks amazing, but a pain when it comes to cleaning!!)
- Feature wall, tv console, display cabinet, full ht shoe cabinet and prayer altar in the Living Room.
- Build up sliding wardrobe, tv console, dressing table and mirror and wooden window ledge in MBR.
- Hack horrible partitions and ugly sinks in the toilet, and build glass partitions and vanity set with wall mirror in bathrooms.
- Build up kitchen cabinets and island. (be sure to ask for soft closing hinges). Also fixed glass backing between top and bottom cabinets.
- grilles for all windows and quite a few other things...
- Initial budget on renovation is about 30k.

Dennis gave us a schedule spanning about a month and half. Work was completed about a week before the original end date.
During the course of work, I had to ask Dennis to change the layout of the bathroom partition design and shift a ceiling fan position.
Nothing was impossible, just have to pester him...

This is going to all the couples out there who are going thru the mammoth task of building your dream home. No doubt it is important to get a good designer to renovate within your budget. It is equally as important to get a designer that is professional in his services and get things rectified within the shortest possible time. Both traits which is deeply eteched in William character and personality.

Thank you William for the time and effort you have painstakingly put in for our home. Kudos to your endurance and patient in guiding us thru the whole renovation process. You will definitely be on our mind when comes to introducing a responsible designer for our friends future home.

We engaged Summit Design to renovate our home as we felt their quotations were reasonable and their design ideas were creative. The fact that the interior designer assigned to us, Dennis Tan, was friendly and obliging also influenced our decision to engage their services.

We were glad that we made the right decision as every step during the renovation process – from the planning stage, to the execution stage, to the final touch-ups – Dennis made an effort to keep us updated and informed. He also took time to explain to us every detail that we were unsure about and gave us valuable and insightful advice on how to achieve the look and feel we wanted for our home.

We were also pleased that he was not pushy, and he was accommodating to all our requests. We understand that every renovation project will have its problems and issues. For our case, the problems were not major; but most importantly, our ID, Dennis, was prompt in settling the issues for us. We called him whenever we had a question and he was always prompt in his replies.

Overall, we are pleased with Summit Design’s services. We would definitely recommend them (especially Dennis) if we have friends or relatives who are looking for the services of an interior designer.

Just want to share our experience with Summit Design and the ID we engaged, Dennis Tan. From the first moment we met him, he made an impression on us. He patiently listened all our requirements and noted down every little details before giving a quotation. He wasn't pushy and very willing to make all the nitty gritty adjustments we requested.
God knows how many times we asked him to revise the quotation, changing this and that. I believed we made the right decision picking him as our ID. He is the man of action, if we asked something, he made sure things get done promptly. Even after the hand-over, if we made a call to him and asked to fix something (like leaking water pipe) , he promptly arranged for the plumber.
We renovated our Exec flat, re-do almost everything, hack the bomb shelter, re-do living, dining, study area, whole kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms. There are a lot of work involved. Dennis superbly did the coordination of plumber, cleaner, tilers, carpenter, electrician, painters and citygas officers for us. He is also considerate and conscious of the expenses we had to incur and try best to minimize the costs.
Along the way, both my husband and I kept changing our mind about adding this or removing that. Dennis is most agreeable and not at all showed any impatience over our never-ending changes.
With the project this big, there were some hiccups and delays. The biggest trouble we had is our downstairs neighbor coming to our flat all the time complaining of the noise from renovation. She barged into our flat like she owned it and shout at the workers to stop working. She is the most unreasonable person I ever met. She even called HDB to complain. But we had the valid reno permit and there is nothing she can do. But she kept on coming to the flat, scold the workers, called Dennis on his handphone everyday and complained. I don't know how Dennis has the willpower to withstand her and listen to her. I certainly don't.
We also had another problem with the air-con piping. We decided not to change the air-con and continue using the ones left behind by previous owner, because the units are in fairly good condition and we like to save a few bucks. Unfortunately the water piping is not properly done and water started leaking after parquet flooring was completely done in the master bedroom. As a result, part of the floor tiles in front of bathroom are ruined. Dennis arranged with the tilers to re-do the floor at no extra cost to us. Kudos to that!

To sum up, I must say we are extremely pleased with Summit Design and Dennis for their excellent service. We will definitely use them again if we ever buy a condo a few years down the road

Hi Nicholas Leong,

We would like to thank you & your firm for transforming our house to our dream home.

We zeroed in on your firm after reviewing almost 10 different ID firms and we are so glad
we selected yours. We also think we are lucky in having got you as our ID, considering that we had almost no experience in design and material selection. We commend the fact that you showed so much patience in guiding us through the process of the entire renovation and showed genuine interest in getting the work done properly, so often getting the carpenter and electrician to comeback and redo works that you think needed rework or based on our request for changes. Last but not least, we would like to thank you for getting the workmen back to the house after the handover in order to repair minor issues and cater our new request and changes.

We will definitely recommend Nicholas Leong and SUMMIT to our friends as a firm that may not be the cheapest in town but definitely the most professional, responsible and quality of work wise - the best!!

Thank you once again and wish you the very best.

My comments on ID Nicholas:
Overall, very good. As Im a single working adult, I have very little time to visit site during reno, so I almost totally depended on my ID to monitor schedule and workmanship. In the end, most things are satisfactory. There are a few minor hiccups here and there, but all were corrected quickly by Nicholas. I think his key strength is his patience and responsiveness. He's fairly young (early 30s) so may not pack the same technical know-how like some "old birds", but he more than make up with his enthusiasm, sincerity and strong sense of responsibility. He has really made the whole reno experience fairly hassle-free for me which is a big plus considering my work schedule.
No major complaints. During hacking, a couple of door frame trims came off but Nicholas got it repaired immediately. A chipped wall tile was found 1week before handover but Nicholas also got it changed after we discovered it.
All said and done, I recommend Summit & Nicholas for whoever with hands-off approach towards reno, or simply don't have much time to spend on site (like me). Or if you are looking for non-pushy, good-tempered ID, Nicholas will be a good choice too.

We decided to take on Summit Design as we met a reliable ID name of Nicholas Leong. We had a good raport from the 1st meeting & importantly is we were comfortable with him. We could compromise with each other & best part he actually followed us go shopping wallpaper, bathroom accessories & floorings which our previous renovating guy never did that with us. Practically alternate days he would visit our site & we actually did spot checks but he was there. Even without a vehicle, Nicholas still manage to be on time for our meets & never complained to why is it too early or too late & in the end became our friend. He managed to rush for our reno within a month as he knew that me & my husband & 3kids with a maid had no place to stay. We really appreciate Nicholas's help & his devotion to his job. Although some things were not right, but when we called him back, he still approached us in a nice manner together with his manager. They were very nice when we told them we were not happy with the doors that they gave us, im a perfectionist & of course my things must be perfect too. But they were patient about it although i was very agitated already. But I respected both Nicholas & his manager William who came to my house after the whole reno works. They were professional in handling the situation.

After that, Nicholas kept coming down & make sure alls handled properly although we were already residing in the unit. When Nicholas saw a chip from my daughter's wardrobe door & instructed his men to change without me realizing it. But after that I just told him its ok & I could live with it. He gave suggestion to place a mirror there so as to cover the chip area & Im very comfortable with his suggestion.

To u guys out there, if it was me, I would still choose Summit Design Studio & with Nicholas Leong so long as he still there. He really helped me & my husband alot in solving problems, giving ideas & etc. We really would like to thank Nicholas & not forgetting William too :)

We are assure you that we will definitely reccomend Nicholas from Summit Design Studio!

I'm writing this testimonial in appreciation for the hard work put in by Ms Carol Lim and her team from Summit Design Studio (SDS).

We were about to receive the keys to our new home at Telok Blangah in Dec'11 and was shopping around for furnishings and renovation ideas during an Expo show in Nov'11. That's where we met Carol at their road show and had an initial layout planning at Expo. We were quite happy with the advice and response from Carol during the layout planning and were promised a quotation within the next few days. True enough we got an initial quotation soon and we felt that the quotation was detailed, practical and in accordance to our requests. The pricing was also reasonable compared to the research we did online. The online community was also full of compliments about SDS works and therefore we decided to place our trust on Carol and SDS and signed up our renovation without getting any second quotes (pretty lazy).It proved to be a good choice in the end.

We received our keys on 1st Dec'11 and had a site meeting with Carol that very evening. Carol understood that we were rushing to move in before Lunar New Year in mid Jan'12 and the renovation works commenced ASAP. Despite the very packed period for her sub-contractors, Carol came up with a work schedule to suit my shift work schedule and pushed for her contractors to keep on track as far as possible. She kept us updated on the possible delays or hiccups via whatsapp or email regularly and the whole renovation periods was considered rather smooth-flowing.Her team of electricians, carpenters, tilers, plumbers and cleaner were friendly and helpful throughout the renovation period. The electricians and carpenters were especially responsive to our feedback and tried to rectify on the spot on most occasions.

Carol and her team's after sales service was also worth extra mentioning as well. She helped to arranged for touch ups even after handing over. We really appreciate and feel her dedication & commitment in making our home like her very own home.

The final product was up to our expectations, if not better. The 3D drawings and advices from Carol were helpful in our choice of colors and laminates. We were able to move into our comfy nest on time on target during the peak period before Lunar New Year. A very big 'Thank You' once again for Carol and her team from SDS.

Testimonial for Gavin Lee

This letter is to recognize the performance of Gavin Lee. I have been extremely satisfied with the quality of the work done by him. During the two months renovation period, Gavin supervised the job site almost every day. He managed well with all the subcontractors and resolved any issues with them. He carefully inspected the quality of their works and made sure that any inadequacies were corrected.

Gavin acted in a very friendly manner throughout the entire project. He was always accessible to answer any questions I may have had. Upon completion of the project, I was pleased that Gavin had promptly rectified all problems no matter how minor it is. Gavin is patient, reliable and most importantly, responsible, I highly recommend him for any renovation project.

Thanks for doing a great job, Gavin!

Just want to express our gratitude for the way our renovation at BLK 332 Tampines Street 32 went. It was a pleasure working with Miss Carol Lim, your lifestyle consultant. Not only is she very professional towards the renovation works carried out, she went the extra miles to ensure all works are done in the stipulated time frame.

It is hard to hand someone the keys and walk away to let them handle everything. However Miss Carol Lim has shown that she is able to exceed in all aspects of queries and rectification works addressed to her. If we to have any fears of her unable to do the renovation, our fears were soon being put to rest. Miss Carol Lim is a very dedicated and attentive person who never fails to notice the finest details I have told her. She clearly remembered every single thing I have told her upon our first meeting.

It is very heartwarming to know that you have such a genuine and hardworking staff under Summit Design Studio. Needless to say, I would highly recommend Summit Design Studio and Miss Carol Lim to any one who would like to do renovations. If I was ever to do renovation again, I would wish for Miss Carol Lim again.

I would like to express my appreciation to Ms Carol Lim from Summit Design Studio whom has done a great job in helping to co-ordinate the renovation of my kitchen on schedule.

She has been listening to our needs in what we want for our kitchen and provides useful recommendation to cater for our needs for our kitchen. She has been taking care of the coordination while my husband and I are busy at work which has greatly eased the process of re-doing my 5 years old kitchen. Any workmanships issues that we found during the renovation, she is able to rectify them promptly.

From the re-design to the installation of new kitchen, Carol was given a very short duration. However, with her excellent project and time management, we managed to have a new kitchen just before Lunar New Year. We are very pleased with the result of the renovation and her services. We will definitely recommend Carol to our contacts.

My family would like to show our most sincere gratitude to Ms Carol Lim and her team for the dedication and commitment they had shown during the period of the renovation last Dec.

We had been longing for a revamp of our existing toilets but we were worried that we could not find a company we could trust and also manage the transition during the renovation. At the end of last year, we could not wait any longer because one of the wcs had given way and that began our hunt for a reliable contractor. After visiting two companies and still not satisfied with the pricing, we did a research. We read about the compliments given by customers for Summit Design and we decided to contact this design company. Ms Carol Lim was the ID who approached us. Her quotation was the most reasonable and satisfactory as compared to the first two other renowned companies and we felt confident having her as our ID as she was sharp and attentive to our needs, especially my fussy daughter’s. She gave us very good and practical advice as to what we should avoid as well as helping us improve on our ideas with her expertise.

What we appreciated most was her patience and decisiveness. Whenever things did not go well, she would quickly rectify it and follow-up to ensure that things were fine. She had even gone beyond her call of duty to help us liaise with our own air-con contractor while we were away for a holiday to ensure that the air cons and the piping were installed in the best possible way. Even the day before her wedding, she was still concerned about the status of the renovation and contacting the suppliers. The whole process was less daunting than what we had thought initially and all this was due to Carol’s good management and planning of the project.

Her team of cleaners, electricians, tilers and plumbers were also worth mentioning as their workmanship was beyond our expectation. Their service was prompt and they were always punctual. Thanks to all of you for making our dream came true! I will definitely recommend our friends and relatives Summit Design and Ms Carol Lim as the first choice!

Searching for the right designer is exhaustive to say the least. After talking to quite a number of them and comparing quotes, I was left quite disheartened by not being able to find the right fit between price and quality. When the price was right, the person was just not. In very simple terms, I found most of the designers very “Ah-Beng” in character. Just something about them with the way they talked, dressed and tried to sell you a miss-fit idea, didn’t sit quite well.

That is until I came across Edward Seet from Summit Design.

To me the company is less important than the person who you need to deal with on a daily basis. Think of it as an intimate short term relationship, if it doesn’t feel right it just probably isn’t.

It’s just something about him that clicked well with me and the Mrs and so after a few rounds of negotiation, we hired him as the man in charge of creating our first home. Price wise, his quote was quite comparable to most ID firms out there.

I found Edward very pleasant and easy to deal with. To be frank, I myself am not an easy person to deal with as I have very specific tastes. I don’t know whether that made his job easier or more difficult but his patience throughout the entire process was quite admirable. He geared most of his recommendations with my taste in mind and on some occasions managed to convince me otherwise.

His contractors were reasonably good. There were minor hiccups here and there along the way, as it is to be expected with any renovation project, but all in all everything got sorted and we managed to move into our new place within the agreed timeline. The best part, things were completed under Budget and the amount, Edward gladly refunded to us. Even after the process was over, he answered and rectified a few small complaints here and there at no extra cost.

All in all, we are quite happy with our new place. Even our curtains came from someone he recommended. Splendid job! I highly recommend him as someone you can very easily place your trust in for your new home and he won’t let you down.

Signed up with summit last week after comparing 7-8 id's, well, until exhaustion overtook us. Price-wise they may not be the lowest but a few strengths impressed us enough that we decided to bet on this horse.

1. Response via phone is fast... Really fast... In fact one time we didn't hear the ring tone before our Id picked up. This is impressive, if that is what we will get thru out the project. Peace of mind, if u will, knowing ur project manager will be there when u need him.

2. Shared creative process - in our search, we came across pushy Ids (my way or the highway), as well as "everything-also-ok" Ids. Our Id gave us the best of both worlds, benefit of his experience while keeping us grounded on planet earth. This was important to us, as we wanted to feel like we had a major part in building our nest but at the same time needed an expert to tell us certain realities so as to avoid overcommitment on their part leading to disappointment later.

So far the experience has been great, our Id has become in a way stakeholder and advisor. Keeping our fingers crossed, we will see our design next week, let's see how everything pans out.

Hi,

Currently my hse reno is oso done up by Summit Dezign & its oso thru this forum tt I learnt abt them (not sure y the earlier thread was deleted though??) dunno.gif & signed up with my current ID; Ben Yeo. Which I feel he’s worth mentioning about even though my hse reno is yet to be completed; abt 95% done.

I muz say both me & my wife are satisfied with the work he’s has done so far.
The reason we choose him was becoz he gave us quite a good quote; not the cheapest we had found but we like the confidence & idea he gave us. A very humorous guy to chat wif oso. Carpentry wise, we oso did not have much problem except for a few minor defects which he solve it quite promptly.

Actualli in fact I was quite impressed when there was once we call up Ben for a hole dented into our wall tiles by his worker, instead of finding excuses; he actualli get upset upon seeing the hole and assured us that he will get it fixed immediately.

Below are some of the renovation work that has been done so far & I believed he’s someone I would recommend to a friend

Hi,

Yes, my house is done by Summit.. In fact, wanna drop a note to thank the designer for the great job in handling the renovation of our flat!

My wife and I appreciate his professionalism, honesty and most importantly enthusiasm in this renovation project. We are pleased by his promptness in assisting the various requests that we have.. whether its big or small request, he will try to help us, and with no delay.

I'm impressed by his perfectionism and creativity as a interior designer where he treat my renovation like its your own house, where he advice us on what's feasible and attractive without costing too much money too...

Have already started introducing Summit contact to my friends and relatives, keep up the good work! :>

It has been about 2 months since my renovation finished and has since moved in.

Finally I have the time to settle down to comment(which I have been eagerly wanting to but have been extremely busy doing up my house) about the ID whom I have engaged. My ID is Dennis.

What I want to boastfully say is no words (and I am serious) could describe my renovation experience with him. He has done so much and most of the time exceeding my expectations for my renovation works. Pictures tell a thousand words.

If you need his help to convert your dream home into reality you can contact me.

Just want to bump up my review for Carol Lim from Summit. Recently decided to install CCTV for my home and was quite worried about the extra wiring and ugly trunking that might be visible, decided to drop her a message to ask if she have someone who can help me with that at a reasonable price and she didn't disappoint! Even remembered that my husband is usually the coordinator (haha...) and informed me that she will help me ask for a quote and contact my husband directly. Thumbs up for Carol on her intiative and thoughtfulness

- A genuinely satisfied customer of Carol 5 mths into enjoying my home!

Hi guys,

I have signed up with James Chew from Summit since July 2012.
Work is more or less 80% completed to date.
So far so good and definitely no complaints.
Nice ID to work with.
Pictures speak a thousand words...
