I hope this information will be useful to all homeowners who wish to save cost on home renovation works. Just as any other couples, we approached a few interior designers to build our dream home. To be frank, we were quite disappointed with their proposed ideas and design.  Im proud to say we were the designers for our own home but of course with the help and advice from our contractor. Since we had to keep within our budget (arrival of our baby around the same time), we decided to do the renovation with a contractor after hearing from friends that it is possible to have a wow home makeover and save significant savings too. Information on renovation ideas are also readily available online. We were very much involved during the whole process. We invested our time on phone calls and checks to ensure evrything goes as plan such as the correct colours, design and layout as discussed with our contractors. Here are some of our house's photos in progress and the outcome. Im unable to upload all the completed photos due to size. All the best in planning your dream home!

Hi.... Do you mind sharing the contact of your contractor?

jiyes@hotmail.com

Thanks! 

Personally, I have also asked for a number of quotes from IDs. I felt that out of the 9 I met, only one had some initiative to provide some design advice. The rest all just quoted me numbers that were 30% above my indicated budget. No value added input. What's the point of hiring an ID then? Contractors these days also seem to do project mgmt for you.
