  2. Hi all, I just received my keys to my 5room bto premium flat. I haven't found an ID or contractor that i like. Most ID quoted me 40k which exceeded my budget (30 -35k include overlay of 2 bathrooms) and some told me that they are unable to complete before chinese new year. Can anyone intro their contractor or ID that is able to finish before cny and with good workmanship? Thanks in advance.
  3. 3D Innovations (Sin Ming Branch) Designer’s Name: Allan Chee (self titled $2M award winning ID man) Date of Renovation: Aug 2017 Designer We paid 50% of the total reno cost to get work started. The promised 3D drawings was delayed more than a week. When eventually it arrived, the drawing was totally out of dimension, distorted and simply ugly. I believed the images- copied and pasted from other projects. Allan blamed his draftsman whom he claims was sacked. Demolition work already started and we had to proceed with out any design. Service Allan Chee, was always late for appointment. And even if he turns up – he was always on the phone, chatting. I was overseeing the project more than him. We had to update Allan on the progress/mistakes of the renovation. Mistakes and workmanship Tiling workmanship is good but made many mistakes because ID Allan Chee did not give proper instructions. He was never at the work site and rely on the sub con to feed back on dimensions. Two of my bedroom door frames were wrongly dismantled and when pointed out to Allan, he replaced them with a shorter frame. We had to re-redo the door frames again. Tiling at both bathroom redo several times due to no proper instructions. Infact, we were coordinating with the tiler directly Plumber laid the pipes wrongly. No provision for pipings for Storage Heater. Had to hack off some tiles to relay the pipes again. Conclusion We spoke to his team leader on many occasions. When he did not even turn up for the final meeting, that we approached 3D’ management to terminate the contract. His team leader Denn Lim took over and complete the outstanding renovations as we cancelled the electrical and woodworks. Denn did a marvellous job and show much responsibility which Allan Chee has none. Opinion on Designer (Allan Chee) Allan Chee, inigtially, strikes out to be a nice and smooth talker. During initial discussion, he was able to get quotations within 10-15mins. He showed many images of projects (I doubt it is his projects, maybe copied from other projects). Claiming to be an award winning designer. Immediately after the deposit paid, Allan showed his true character. Arrogant, boastful, irresponsible, showoff and most of all, he is not knowledgeable and is not able to follow through the renovations. I doubt his qualification.
  4. We applied for BTO in 2013 and we were expecting to collect our keys in Q2 2017. Despite the long wait which we could have started brainstorming for reno ideas, we procrastinated: (i) wedding prep seems more exciting, (ii) we dont look forward to research abt tiles.etc. So definitely at the beginning of 2017, we were feeling jittery abt having to start planning for our reno! We started to look at various websites for inspiration and pinterest is definitely one of them! Our pinterest boards shared between hub & me. We started out wanting our home to have the Scandinavian feel...minimalist as well. We contacted about 10 IDs and contractors to meet up to discuss our plans and to see how much they quote us for what we wanted. After meeting IDs and contractors, we were burned out. It's really tiring to meet especially after work in the east (we stayed at the extreme west of sg) and to repeat what we hope to achieve for our home to each and every IDs/Contractors that we arranged to meet.Some IDs seemed genuine and easy to talk to, while some...perhaps because of the many good reviews they have received, they came across as arrogant and doesnt provide any rooms for nego for their price. One of them didn't follow up with us at all after the meeting After discussing, we decided on Jade Cham from The Local.Innterior - (i) The quotation was comparable with other IDs, (ii) i have a friend who had contracted them for her house and she strongly recommend them for their great carpentry work, (iii) Jade was prompt in replying to our emails (iv) we seen her designs and love it and last but most importantly, (v) we spoke the same frequency...she was able to relate to what we wanted for our home and provide many suggestions to improvise our ideas. So we signed the contract with her in March!On the day of signing the contract, we started to discuss about the table top materials for the 3d design! *EXCITED* so while waiting for our key collection, we went pinterest to look for inspiration. One of the crazy ideas we had was to have a service yard basin! Subsequently, we also shifted from scandinavian designs to nordic designs! We also decided to switch from vinyl to wood grain tiles! THANKFUL for this decision...although tiles are more expensive than vinyl, but it is more durable and especially when we have gotten a new pupz..it was a decision we didnt regret! Prior to key collections, we had many discussions with Jade on the types of design we wanted and we also went for tiles shopping tgt! Tiles shopping can be a headache! And so glad that Jade was with us to help us shortlist the tiles that fit our home style. On our part, we also try to visualize our home using the 3d app and working out what we wanted for our kitchen carpentry. Furniture shopping at Castlery, Taka, Taobaoing our furnitures (e.g. basins, lights, bedside tables). Jade also send us the 3d design and we were really impressed! Choosing our tiles with Jade Fast forward...we collected our keys in July and we were so excited to enter our new home! Jade came down to do defect checks with us. Key collection day! Jade helping us with defects checking! And BSC settled within 2 weeks. RENO STARTS! I shall let the photos do the talking! Tiles delivered on the day when reno started! Kitchen wall hacked! Alt MBR wall hacked! MBR toilet tiles! MBR toilet tiles laid Mortars up! Efficient tiler laid the whole house within 3 days! Loving our wood grain tiles! View from main door with cardboard laid to protect our tiles! Aircon installation Carpentry discussion! We were so glad that the carpenter who is working with Jade is so capable and provided expert advice to us on what we should/should not fabricate for our kitchen, shoes cabinet and wardrobe! The discussion went for hours cos' carpentry is not as direct as it seems to be! There were many considerations and so glad that Jade highlighted some practical issues we need to take note of! First layer of painting! MBR wall with taobao light Carpentry up within 2 days! Concealed bomb shelter with settee Painted pipes and hidden away! Requested from Jade that we wanted to fabricate this for our jewelleries! too excited hence we visited at night to check out the carpentry Glass screen up! FINAL LOOK! Kompacplus table top THIS IS SO USEFUL! Service yard basin to soak clothes as we didnt want our toilets to be filled with pails! Settee with led light Built in plug to store & charge our dyson vacuum Guest room toilet! We converted the original MBR to a wardrobe & study area Pull out mirror Study table with led lights installed MBR toilet! Overall, we were really satisfied with our new home! I'm in love with both of our toilets. One of our initial discussion with Jade was...to make the toilet don't feel like a toilet. I'm kind of a clean freak...so i wanted our toilets to give off the cozy feel as well. It felt surreal that we have moved in to our dream home! I thought i should also add this here. When i went to look up on reviews about Jade before signing contract with her, I came across a negative review about her. It kinda made us contemplate whether to engage her but we thought to be fair to her, we should clarify with her although it was a bit awkward to bring up the issue. I must say...we are so glad that we hear her side of story and went ahead to engage her. No regrets! Jade was really devoted and professional in making our dream a reality. Thankful for the advices given to us and her candid feedback esp when we chose furnitures/decors that deviated from our home style hahah. Jade took the extra mile to assist us in many ways, for instance making extra trips (at no extra costs) to help us install our taobao loots. Greatly recommend their carpentry workmanship as well! Although there were minor hiccups, Jade helped us to resolve them all immediately and we don't have to worry at all! Jade also constantly update us about the reno progress with photos! SO GLAD OUR RENO JOURNEY IS OVER ALL THE BEST TO THOSE WHO JUST STARTED! If you have any questions, feel free to ask, we are more than happy to help

Arrogant, boastful, irresponsible, showy and most of all, he is not knowledgeable and is not able to follow through the renovations. I doubt his qualification.

  19. I am a believer that every ID has their own strengths (and weaknesses too). This inspired me to start this topic to make a list of good Interior Designers as well as their key strengths. Let me start on a few. Renotalk forumers, please add on and I will update this first post. Cheong Cheng Renovation (https://www.cheongcheng.com/) - Quality carpentry workmanship. Has their own factory. Even provides smart home solutions. M Square Decor (https://www.m2decor.com/) - Versatile in both carpentry and design. Value for money packages. Taims Interior (http://taimsinterior.com/) - Awesome bespoke design. Price seems high but clients are always happy with the outcome.

  23. Hello everyone, i want to share with you all my recent renovation with this interior designer. I had my kitchen re-renovated from a re-sale apartment and very satisfy with the end result. The re-sale apartment i bought has many damages to it and i had no idea where to begin. I consulted many ids and what made me nailed down to this id herself is that she was very specific with her descriptions and explanations. I have gotten many ideas from her for industrial theme. But one problem was i live far from this company and have little time to go down for consultation as i have kids to take care of. But the id was willing to come down to my convenient despite she have many other things to handle and even brought me to one of her showrooms. She even brought the real life samples down after she sent me a few in picture form thorugh whasapp. That was when i made up my mind as i feel that she has the overall package. Although she only told me she started ID not long ago but can see she's very meticulous and her boss is there to back her up. Moving on to the renovation process after i closed the deal with her. Oh and her company's quotation are reasonable thats why i dont dare ask for much discount. But of course don't expect it to be cheap too because the worksmanship is really on par with other company's. So here are the few pictures she updated me with during the renovation from day 1. I don't want to post too many but if you would like more feel free to pm me :). I'm more than willing to share them with anyone. All these were done in less than 3 weeks. I'm moving in soon too. On a sidenote, as i was on a budget thats why you can see i did not want to do the base for my cabinets, fridge and washing machine. They did strongly advice me on some things to do or not but i'm very picky. Overall they are very knowledgable.
  24. We engaged 3D Innovations to renovate our home in Aug 17. The ID's name is Allan Chee. Innitially, he seems a polite sweet talker, but the moment we paid the deposit to begin work, it became a nightmare and disaster from day 01. The ID Allan Chee, who claims to be an award winner designer, showed us many images of newly renovated homes, turns out to be irresponsible, not creative, no ideas, no sense of appointment, always late, did not give proper instructions to the sub contractors,. Measurements and instructions were wrong and we had to redo many items again. Despite numerous reminders and constant checking, he makes mistakes after mistakes. He has no sense of responsibility. I am not sure if he's qualified. We had to make many corrections to rectify his mistakes. Eventually, we terminated his services, and his boss had to complete the outstanding works, We eventually engaged another contractor to finish our home. If you must engage 3D Innovation, suggest you avoid Allan Chee and look for Denn Lim instead
