  1. Please do not use localInn interior design. Especially the ID Kenny . We choose them as given a quote that matches our budget. About 60 k for the whole HDB 5 room. During his site visit he mentioned the old ceiling can be reused. Half way thru Reno he texted us saying the ceiling cannot be saved and that cost us another 5 K . During choosing of tile he didn’t openly communicate that workmanship involved will cost another few 1000 . The addictional cost was more than 10 k which we could have gotten higher reno loan. The job competed is half way and after we paid our 95 % payment he started to ignore our text msg of touching up. I mentioned I do not want a two way swinging door at the kitchen as the wind from kitchen window is strong and it will cause injuries to anyone standing near the door. Literally smack to the face. He kept delaying the request and accident until it happened when my kids visited the new house. Again no apologies. Anyway I shouted at him and things was done. We communicated to the management and they are not very apologetic either towards the whole matter. Makes me wonder if this is the way how they deal with all customer. Overall very disappointing experience and in future I won’t engage any ID. Aint supposed to take away our stress of Reno? Unfortunately this is not the case. I do have many other items to show that they are quite brainless in the design pics below. Pic A fridge beside oven? Fail design! pic B He ask us to get a switch for the light and it not in use . Why’d I we need to pay so much and still need to get the switch ? pic c super loud buzzing sound when switch on ? Why no answer from him too. pic d see the unevenness on the wall he blame it on HDB workmanship!? Maybe expert here can share ur thoughts. After paying so much? He build the light to make it more obvious. It’s a joke right? Pic E and F he had no prior contact to any door supply or window supply we waited for his contact till the end of Reno and so we had to find ours . The thing is the painter already far gone to touch up the paint… How can a ID company comes with no contact ? Weird right? Pic G well u can see I cannot build a curtain rod up from the ceiling cos he build a light wire case there . This happens after we told him in the early stage that we will install curtains! the rest is history … move forward I guess
  2. Hi all, I've recently purchased a resale flat and approached a certain ID firm recommended by a friend. They said they'll get me a good price but honestly it's feeling pretty expensive. I might be wrong so I would like the help of the public please. It's a 3+1 room resale flat that's basically empty. How do I go about this? Should I post the quote I got from him? The whole thing is costing me about 51 thousand right now and another 4325 from the electrician who I also feel is overcharging me. The CAT 6 cable is 150 each though I've seen other people reporting 75-90?? I'm not sure about the prices of the other components. As for the renovation itself, I can upload pictures of the design as well as of the prices on the invoice for you guys to take a look. Please help, I feel like we're being cheated here or something or maybe I'm just inexperienced. Thanks!

  4. Hi all, I am going to collect my keys to my place next year and have started to look for ID for preparation of my flat. Mine is a 4 room BTO which I have opted for flooring and doors to be done. So far I have went to about 4 IDs, some are too expensive and some way too cheap. I even have 1 quotation from an ID for whole house renovation, including changing of kitchen table top from solid surface to quartz, having a full length mirror at dinning, false ceiling for whole house (except 2 bedrooms) and making dinning bench all for $11,888. As a newbie, I would like any advise on how much a rough 4 room BTO renovation would cost and any recommendation so that I can have a better idea. Thank you!
