My wife and I bought an 8 year old condo in the East and were looking for an interior design firm to design and renovate our new home. We scoured several local websites and read many reviews, both positive and negative and short-listed 5 ID firms. Design 4 Space was one of them and across all their reviews (from different websites), one name is often mentioned with glowing comments, Vincent Chuah. I decided to meet him in his Toa Payoh branch office for an initial discussion. With our floor plan and reno preferences, Vincent briefed us on his design ideas, renovation process and estimate completion timeline. He was patient, easy to talk to and knowledgeable in his field. Both me and my wife left his office with a sense that we can connect with him. After meeting several other ID firms and IDs, it was a unanimous decision to pick Vincent as our ID. During the course of renovation and working with Vincent, he is good at his job and I want to highlight 3 areas that stood out for me: 1) Knowledge Due to his many years of experience as an ID, he is able to handle all phases of the reno works from applying the necessary condo permits to BCA etc with ease. He also have a team of workers that he manages like an orchestral conductor and the transition from hacking to tiling to carpentry is seamless. With constant Whatsapp messaging, I was also kept updated of the reno process. 2) Flexible Unlike some IDs who impose their design ideas, Vincent is flexible. I remembered he made initial 3D drawings and after several exchange of ideas and preferences, we ended up with our final design which is both practical and aesthetically pleasing. 3) Solutions All renovations will bound to encounter issues along the process due to unforeseen circumstances, like hidden gas pipes, air-con location etc. Vincent is almost present every morning at site and can recognise any potential issues. Instead of presenting the problem to me, he also offered, not 1 or 2 but 3 options with their respective pros and cons. I’m writing this review, out of appreciation and recognition of a good job done by Vincent Chuah. I will no doubt recommend his services to my friends. To Vincent, Thanks a lot for the incredible work done.
