With the help of Qanvast I ended up meeting up with 4 IDs to see which one could best capture the friendly and modern industrial concept I wanted for my flat while not blowing my budget.
From my first interaction with Eric from The Interior Lab (TIL), it was clear he was a professional with experience. Compared to the other IDs I spoke with, he showed the most initiative, gave the most thoughtful recommendations and produced the most detailed proposal.
Additionally Eric showed the most care in sticking to my budget compared to the other ID – something that was very important. He was the clear choice to go with after spending the few weeks reviewing the various IDs.
My 3-room HDB flat at Toa Payoh was a very old unit that had minimal work done over the years and there was a lot of ways it could be improved. Eric immediately understood the concept I was going for and paid great attention to my concerns and requirements.
For example, I would be living with my grandmother so the living space had to be safe and conducive enough for an elderly resident. Eric also showed a great eye for detail and consideration in catering for things I hadn’t properly thought through, like my grandmother’s prayer shrine.
I’m glad to say that the whole renovation process went smoothly and was completed on schedule. Eric was very patient and responsive to any questions I had throughout the process. I felt like I could message him anytime for help and he would answer promptly. Even after the renovation was completed and I noticed some small areas needing touch-ups, Eric continued to respond and made sure everything was fixed to our satisfaction.
In terms of design, Eric really helped bring the general concept and ideas I had to life. I’ve received very positive feedback from my friends and colleagues who’ve seen the house, especially for the designs of the kitchen and bathroom. It’s become a lovely space to live in.
I would definitely recommend Eric and TIL to anyone looking for a ID.
