I would like to thank Chris Toh for his excellent service in designing and coordinating the renovation work for my BTO house. Chris’s professionalism and dedicated attitude stood out among the few IDs whom I had met up with. He was able to present his plan layout and quotation within the stipulated time. I was impressed by his neat design layout which maximizes every inch of space available for storage ideas. Along the way, I learned a lot from his advice on the feasibility and constructive suggestions of my floor plan and house design. Also, he was prompt and responsive to questions and follow up on any rectification work even after hand over. As a first-time homeowner without any experience in dealing with contractors or knowledge in interior design, I am very pleased that the renovation is overall smooth and hassle-free under the supervision of an experienced and reliable ID. Not only that, the final outcome is closed to 3D drawings and I receive compliments of my new house. I highly recommend Chris and The Interior Lab team. Cheers! -Eileen Chan –
We got to know about The Interior Lab through Qanvast. After reading several reviews which recommended Yen, we decided to give her a call and got to meet her on the day itself. During the meet-up, we realized that we had great chemistry, so we decided to engage her. The 3-room resale flat we bought was pretty dated. We wanted to give it a brand new look — something that had a modern industrial vibe where spaces could flow more freely. Throughout the renovation process, Yen was not only responsive but also took lots of initiative in providing different perspectives, which were fresh yet practical. Some of the ideas which we now love were ones we hadn’t even thought of in the first place! We also appreciate the fact that The Interior Lab dedicated high attention to details, and ensured that the workmanship was crafted with the highest quality. Overall, The Interior Lab really exceeded our expectations! We would definitely recommend Yen and The Interior Lab to anyone who’s looking to craft a beautiful home. – Long Wen –
Suki is a very dedicated ID consultant. Responsive service throughout the entire project. Workmanship of renovation was good with no issues after handover. Martin Tay
Suki has been very professional and patient throughout the entire process. We like her design and her thoughtfulness in functionality and practicality. She is very meticulous and she has helped us solved most of the issues without our intervention. When it comes to issues and problem solving, she is always very patient and we feel that she has our interest at heart. We are extremely pleased with her work and we are now happily staying in this new home which wouldn’t have been possible without her. Thanks, Suki, our awesome interior designer Lim Chin Hee Love to book an appointment for an non-obligatory consultation? Fill in the form below
As with all renovations, there are bound to be hiccups, which Suki was very quick to rectify and won’t leave us unattended. Suki is strong as a project manager as well as in the area of material/ colour selection i.e. trendy/ classic/ timeless designs. Although at times there are areas which she may not be very familiar with, she is quick to direct our questions to the right expertise (e.g. for plumbing issue, she will contact plumber for an accurate answer; for carpentry issue, she will get the carpenter to revert asap), so overall any issues are resolved fast and within our expectations. Another plus point is that she won’t ask you to go for unnecessary additions/ alterations so you know that your money is well spent and kept to budget.
We met up with 5-6 interior designers before we decide to engage Angie. We were convinced to work with Angie as we were impressed with both her portfolio and her attitude towards work. Throughout the whole renovation process, Angie was responsive to our enquiries and was proactive in providing constant updates about the progress of our renovation works. There were a couple of defects and imperfection but they were also promptly resolved by her. The final result of the renovation work is up to our expectations and we are proud to call it home. It was a pleasant experience working with Angie and The Interior Lab and we would recommend their service to our friends and family.
I would like to highly recommend Chris for the great service he rendered through the course of my HDB project. From the conceptualisation of the design to the execution of the project, Chris has provided me with insightful ideas and prompt responses. He was easy to work with, and is highly approachable when it comes to troubleshooting any minor issues that occurred throughout the project execution. I will highly recommend Chris and his services to my family and friends
Throughout the whole renovation process, our interior designer has been very professional and patient in providing guidance and advice. Any hiccups that happened were resolved promptly as well. It was a pleasure working with The Interior Lab team. We would definitely recommend their service.
Mr Chris Toh is sincere and helpful throughout the designing and execution process. He gave us many options to choose for the laminates, quartz etc. He also give his honest opinions during the conceptualisation stage and has great patience. Chris replies messages fast and is a friendly and easy going person. His standard of efficiency and helpfulness remain the same even after the project has been handed over to us!
We shortlisted several ID firms including The Interior Lab. We then met up with several designers to discuss our requirements including Jason from TIL at a Qanvast event. We decided to work with Jason for the carpentry work of our house as he was attentive to our needs and was able to work with us to incorporate our ideas into the design of the carpentry work. If some of our ideas would not work,he would explain the constraints and took time to discuss with us the alternatives. Overall, the carpentry work for our house took about 3-4 weeks. Despite a handful of hiccups, work was completed on time and all the problems were resolved under the good hands of Jason. Jason had been responsive to our request even after handover which we are very much appreciative of. Generally, it was a pleasant experience working with Jason from The Interior Lab and we would recommend their service
I am writing to compliment Chris on his service. I successfully move into my newly renovated home in Aug 2018 with the help of Mr Chris, our interior designer. We engaged Chris sometime in Feb 2018 even before we bought the resale flat. He was very patient and given me and my husband a lot of good advice and ideas for our renovation. It was very comfortable talking to Chris and we don’t feel obliged to engage him at all. His sincerity has touched our hearts and hence we engaged him when I bought my flat. He continued to show patience and sincerity throughout the designing and renovation process. We want to thank Chris for all his hard work and patience given us so as to bring a new pleasant home to me and my family.
Chris has a pleasant demeanour and is transparent with the quotation. It’s easy to work with TIL.
I got to know about Vincent through the Qanvast recommendation. Vincent personally came down to check the apartment and monitor the current home before discussing the details of the renovation that mainly involved space-planning, and material and color selections. I had a growing collection of antique furniture and historical items that took up the majority of the space, and the current residence is based in an old fashioned building in Tiong Bahru, so the challenge was to come up with a unique space concept design for a traditional Asian-style home that accommodates the bulk of furniture and antique items. Even though my requests for the home were specific, Vincent stepped in as the professional to advise against certain design choices and also proposed better-refined concepts that were much more practical than my initial ideas, such as the kind of old-fashioned tiling to be used. The best decision ever made as suggested by Vincent was to bring the balcony indoors which is now my favorite cozy corner of my home. Vincent was resourceful and very helpful in recommending the wide range of material options along with the price difference. He clearly understood the design concept that I put across. I was really busy at work, so I whole-heartedly entrusted this renovation process onto Vincent and The Interior Lab team. Even so, the constant update and communication made me feel included and that assurance in Vincent’s good judgment and honesty helped to take a load off my mind. I wanted a modern…
Decided to renovate my parents’ place before the new year. Naturally, looking for designer Yen from TIL was an obvious choice since I had engaged her for my own place 1-2 years ago. What matters most to me is that TIL does not have hidden cost that would creep up unexpectedly during the renovation. The quality of their workmanship (masonry, carpentry work etc) is good value for money. I wouldn’t say that TIL’s prices are the cheapest in the market but I prefer to have a peace of mind when it comes to renovations (considered to be a stressful life event). I would definitely recommend Yen and TIL for renovation works.
Our ID was Suki Gan. Suki has a great vision and her simple, clean, minimalist approach perfectly jived to what we eventually wanted. We had a little idea on what we wanted and our first meeting with Suki was easy and very pleasant. We fell in love with her initial proposal and started the renovation. One snag was we were to go on a pre-planned holiday and Suki efficiently handled everything on our absence. Prompt progressive updates daily were surely appreciated. Overall, Suki has great ideas and flawless execution!
Since last year in Oct 2019, my husband and I have been happy and proud owners of a resale 5-room apartment in Simei. It was a pleasure working with Angie Ku from The Interior Lab, an ID firm that was recommended by one of our friends. We had met with a few other designers but felt that we were most comfortable with her proposed quote and able to connect well with Angie. Angie is honest, funny, and full of interesting ideas, and most importantly, receptive, responsive, and trustworthy. Her strong relationship with her suppliers and partners puts us at ease with her recommendations and execution throughout the renovation process. With us, Angie worked on a modern rustic theme. We had a basic idea of what we wanted in terms of the look and feel of our ‘forever home’, and Angie was able to take it to the next level with her suggestions and make it a reality for us. Our renovation, which included full hacking works, was quite short. Within two months, we moved in and Angie continued to advise us on furnishing and decor. Now, we are almost a year into staying here and it continues to be our rustic sanctuary. We continue to stay in touch with Angie, who continues to be our go-to person for home design.

Mabel was appointed as our interior designer. Initially, our ideal interior design style was industrial but Mabel advised us that an industrial design could possibly make cleaning challenging. Alternatively, Mabel proposed a modern industrial design which incorporated industrial aspects practically. Another challenge that we faced was fitting our desired furniture which includes a TV console into a bedroom that was relatively small. Generally, we were really impressed by how the furnishing was strategically placed to create a stylish yet functional home. Throughout the whole renovation, we were thankful that Mabel was responsive and provided constructive suggestion to infuse practicality into the design. The final result was impressive and beyond our expectations. We will definitely recommend Mabel from the Interior Lab for renovation works.
We visited the Qanvast Hangout and spoke to a few interior designers, but we ultimately decided to go with Jason and Chris. What really impressed us was how they were able to propose the design concept plan for the home, even though all we did was to show them the floor plan and mention briefly the interior theme that we wanted. All in all, everything fell into place – the word-of-mouth, the comfort level with Jason and Chris together with their level of experience, professionalism and the instant chemistry that we shared. One of the challenges Jason and Chris handled really well was hearing us out on the spontaneous ideas we had for the home in terms of the design and decor, and their ability to accommodate those requests was sublime. They were altogether patient, professional and straightforward enough to hear us out and give us honest advice. Jason and Chris raised the bar when it comes to service quality and understanding our lifestyle needs. They first offered to take a look at our current living conditions so as to understand our lifestyle patterns. After thorough analysis of our needs and preferences, they provided creative and practical design solutions for our new home. Every room was designed in a way that meets our functional needs. The entire home had the modern refined aesthetics of a hotel and the homely comforts of a home, as what we requested. The Interior Lab team is really smart and professional in every sense —…
We were very thankful to find Yen from The Interior Lab, because our flat has an unusual layout which other IDs whom we consulted found difficult to work with. She and Suki appreciated the uniqueness of the layout which was so encouraging to us, and they helped us to find ways to make it look great as well as be functional. They were able to improve on our ideas and suggest worthwhile alternatives. They would also try to understand our priorities and advise accordingly. Yen coordinated all the works well and we didn’t have to worry about supervising the process at all. She is clearly very experienced and even though ours is a resale flat which has not been renovated for a very long time, there were no issues with the extensive works that had to be done. I had trouble articulating what I wanted for our kitchen cabinets, but she very quickly understood what I meant and also gave additional helpful suggestions. She was overall responsive and responsible, and we could tell that she takes pride in her work. Though it is not the cheapest quote we got, we appreciate the overall smooth process and we’re thankful to Yen and Sukie for guiding us through this renovation journey!
We decided to settle for Shawn after thoroughly speaking to about 10 different designers during the Qanvast Hangout. The reason for making this decision is due to Shawn’s trustworthiness, the precisive concepts he proposed and the instant sync in connection we had in regards to our visualisation for the home. Initially, we wanted to go with the Scandi-Minimalist theme. I am not a huge fan of the frilly stuff, and I was slightly concerned with cleanliness as well, so the general lifestyle consideration was a home that can be easily maintained and organized. We plan to adopt a cat, so a pet-friendly home that reserves space to accommodate cat towers and such was kept in mind! Thus, we toned down the house to a darker palette which transformed the home into a Scandi-Industrial style instead. Our favorite space has to be the workspace and the living room. We spend a lot of time gaming and watching movies in our leisure time at home. Also, we also spend a significant amount of time in the home office as game designers especially in this time of co-vid crisis. Thus, a comfy place that really feels like home was very important to us! We initially did not have the intention of hacking down the walls between the two separate spaces between the living room and the home office but Shawn proposed this brilliant idea of building a window pane wall instead which really opened up the space. Overall, Shawn knew his stuff pretty…
Sweet designer Suki Gan helped us designed our little dream home, totally trusted her aesthetic taste with design details carries through each small space which forms a nice and comfortable house as we imagined. We would recommend her to other of our friends.
Having a concept and idea of your dream home and turning it into reality is no easy thing. Luckily for me, Matty from the interior lab follow me throughout the little journey of my humble home renovation. To start off, I’m no easy person to work with when it comes to ideas or whatever that concerns design and art. I visualise how I want my home to look like and by words I’m sure not any ID can fully materialise it. Matty is a straightforward person with quirky ideas and with a lot of years of experience. You call on your ideas to her, she doesn’t just sketch it but she makes sure she improved on it without going too far off what you want. When it comes to my budget, Matty has always been honest with me what she can achieve or not. But at the same time, she will try her best to conceptualise within my means without compromising on the initial ideas of how I want my home to be. She knows her way to make things right. There are so little to worry about having Matty to handle the renovation. Deadlines met? Checked. Satisfactions met? Checked. A place you called heaven? Totally checked!!
Thanks to the interior lab.
It’s been a great experience working with Matty (ID for my home). She is very knowledgeable in her area of work and was very easy to work with to find solutions to suit our needs.
After I bought the unit, I spoke to a few designers online and our interior designer caught my attention with her constant follow-up after our first brief session. We then had a few more sessions and she was very patient to listen to my requirements, and giving me very constructive suggestions on the design of the unit. I selected her to be my ID not just because she has good taste in design but most importantly she gave me that trust and her professionalism of handling my queries. Due to my business, I wasn’t in Singapore when I bought the unit and all the renovation was done without me physically been there, totally hassle free and all managed by her. She is a very responsive and responsible person, she constantly updated me on the progress using WeChat and she went through the extra mile to get all things done up nicely. I am extremely satisfied with the outcome of my house and it was a great experience working with her. TIL did a great job and I will definitely engage the team again for future projects, and for sure I will recommend to my friends as well. James BOOK A CONSULTATION WITH OUR INTERIOR DESIGNER
Vincent was very attentive to my preferences and gave many great ideas regarding the layout of the house and the incorporation of certain features so that parts of the house would stand out. He understood the need of following the theme I wanted and yet gave functional ideas that help enhance our day to day living. Top marks for customer service!
I was referred to Vincent by a friend who had engaged his services for his home reno. We already knew what we wanted in mind for our home so we explained to Vincent what we wanted during our first meeting. We also informed him of our budget. We were very pleased and impressed that Vincent was able to meet what we want within our budget! Vincent also came up with very smart and practical suggestions too for the house. His contractors (carpenter and electrician) were also very nice and patient in explaining to us the details. On to the project itself, everything was smooth and very quick. Since Vincent kept us updated on the progress promptly, we didn’t have any chasing up to do. The reno was completed within the stipulated time frame. We highlighted a few things to touch up during our walk about with Vincent and his contractors were able to rectify any issues very quickly. Vincent also pays a lot of attention to detail and has a keen eye on design. Overall we are very happy with the outcome of our home and big thank you to Vincent. We will definitely recommend Vincent to our family and friends.
After a comprehensive research and reading the countless positive reviews, it did not take us long to settle on The Interior Lab. Hiring Interior Lab as our preferred designer to renovate our kitchen was a decision that we didn’t regret at all to date. Ms Suki was our assigned project coordinator and she was a superb, reliable and professional designer who knew her stuff. From the initial consultations to the culmination of the project, the essence of commitment, dedication and sincerity of this team was felt throughout. We had a vision for our kitchen which Suki was able to capture and put it to paper. We always had a productive and meaningful consultation. She is patient with great listening skills, detail oriented and respectful. We had millions of questions and concerns which Suki took seriously and answered them promptly as well as giving her opinions and suggestions. She would also challenge us to reconsider our choices by giving us a different perspective, a skill that we greatly appreciated. She was extremely knowledgeable about the products/services and the materials available. During the course of the renovation, our family had to travel and one of us had to work. However, Suki took the responsibility to oversee the entire process, house visits and sent us videos as well as images. She kept us up to date with the progress of the renovation as well as the delivery of the fittings or appliances. Her attention to details and timely follow-ups gave us the peace…
Consulting Matty from day 1 of my renovation journey has been a bliss. Besides providing professional help, she is always on task with deadlines. The wealth of knowledge she has allows me to rethink some of my choices. As someone who is approachable and dedicated, I am blessed truly to have engaged her as my ID. There is no hard selling nor was there delay when I require post-sales services. My first experience engaging her with my house interior will certainly have me coming back to get hold of her should I require future interior design services. Every guests that step into the house is in awe of the simple yet high-quality workmanship. More importantly, she holds high regards for her clients based on the due respect she gives at all times. Well done, Matty and kudos for the awesome and immaculate job for my abode which now has a new life altogether.
Experienced Knowledgeable And Resourceful Interior Designer With Attention To Detail, Reliable For Honest Design Advices
It has been great working with Matty Tan as my interior designer and project manager. Her experience with materials and design greatly helped to ensure the longevity and practicality of the designs while achieving my style/requests/ideas. She was also very patient with going through my concerns and questions with all the different material/design choices and giving an honest and balanced opinion. Matty also kept us up to date on the progress of the renovation, including the timeline when the appliances and fittings need to be decided/delivered. Her attention to detail and timely follow-ups and updates allow me to quickly resolve any unexpected issues without having to compromise heavily on the design/brief. I was also able to make changes during the renovation without having to keep renegotiating the quote. One area of improvement would be to have a wider range of material/fitting choices for the specific style that I was looking for (without me having to source them myself). All in all, I am very satisfied with the design and renovation result.
I would like to share my experience with my ID Mabel. My husband and I are very happy and satisfied with her service. The first meet up with her was wonderful, and knew that she was the ID we wanted as we could really clicked. She replied to our queries very promptly. She totally understand what design I preferred and therefore, processes and decisions were all done very quickly as she will give us advices. The renovation process was also completed quite smoothly. We totally enjoyed this renovation journey with her, as we gained a new friend along this journey. We will definitely recommend her service to my other friends! 🙂
