We believe that having an interior designer is always more expensive than getting a contractor. There is an abundance of interior designs online that we could have easily copied and pasted to a contractor. However, we came upon Sophia Yeong, from Interior Lab, who changed our mind and we realized how much value having an interior designer could add to our renovation. After some discussions, we realized that the design that we chose was good but we still needed a lot of help in colour coordination and getting every room to fit into the theme. In the design phase, the process was very smooth. Sophia was patient and was good at listening to what we wanted. She was very helpful to not just look into the design that we wanted but she also focused on the functionality of the house. Now that the renovation has been completed, we appreciate how some things were designed to ease our day to day living, yet, not compromise on aesthetics and quality. Our renovation was interrupted by the Covid-19 circuit breaker. As such, when the measures were lifted and renovations could restart, we had to rush the renovation in record time. We were worried that the quality would be compromised in view of limited workers after the circuit breaker. However, Sophia’s quality control was pretty good. On top of that, every imperfection that we highlighted was quickly rectified, and I must say, we really are perfectionists but she managed to sort it out to our satisfaction. Sophia, we thank you for working tirelessly on our home renovation. We appreciate your patience and willingness to listen to us voice our ideas and concerns, your responsiveness when we messaged you, even at night or on weekends, and your good sense of taste when we asked for advice. Thank you for turning our condo into a home we love!
