We understand that in Singapore, we led a fast-paced lifestyle it is tough to meet 10 interior designers for your renovation needs; thus, we recommend that you can shortlist about 10 Interior Designers based on research- authentic renovation reviews, renovation projects on social media and well-accredited interior firms. After which, you can choose up to 3-5 IDs for a non-obligatory consultation to further discuss about your renovation needs in person. Read on to find out why!
Common Questions: Can you email me the quote/ Can you send me the quote via whatsapp?
Problem: Not meeting your Interior designers in person during the selection process and eliminate interior designers in Singapore through quotation only.
- Missing out on experienced designers.
Just like you, our experienced designers have very packed schedules! During the first meetup, it would be a key discussion on space planning, interior design concept, timeline, and budget. As it is tough to give an accurate quotation based on information with a very short brief (Eg. Scandinavian style, full renovation of a kitchen, toilet etc.). it would be more time efficient for experienced designers to start working on quotations only after they have met and thoroughly understand their client’s renovation needs. Thus, it is no surprise that you do not get an accurate quote or even no quote at all when you input “Email Only”.
- Exceeding your budget: Top-ups/ Additional Cost
Different interior designers have their own style of quotation. Comparing them apple to apple is a huge mistake. One of the key differences could be choice of material and design. A quote which seems cheaper at first glance might have a significant amount of hidden cost and require additional cost. Kind reminder: Quality Materials and Pristine Workmanship usually comes at a higher price.
- Missing out on an Interior Designer that can “clique” with you
Imagine looking for the next team lead to organise a 3 months campaign for your company, you would not eliminate a potential candidate based on his salary requirements. His skills set and project management comes into play. Meeting the Interior Designer would allow you to know whether your ideas aligned with him/her and better understand his/her working style. If you have a good judgment of people, you would know whether he/she is someone you should entrust to spearhead your renovation project.
Meeting a potential interior designer which you are keen to work with is a well-worth investment of your time! It not only allows your ID to thoroughly understand your renovation needs but also give you a more accurate quotation. More importantly, you are able to start your pre-selection round to see whether your ID is suitable to spearhead your renovation project.
