Would you recommend this Interior Designer? Why?

Zul & Azila:
Henry is meticulous and always listens to our concerns and opinions. While he is patient in listening to us, he is also frank to let us know if our requests are feasible. He would always find the best solution to overcome whatever constraints that surfaced during the renovation. Any imperfections with the renovation work done were promptly rectified. Having an eye for detail, problems were spotted by Henry before we can notice them.

It was an easy decision for us to engage Posh Living Interior Design as we believed that Henry and his team of designers are dedicated to deliver excellent services to their clients, without compromising on quality and style.

What advice would you give to future homeowners?

Zul & Azila:
It’s best to confirm on an ID firm at least 2-3 months prior to home key collection. It will be helpful if homeowners can do up a list of the renovation works and categorize them – ‘must have’ and ‘good to have’. In the event that the quotation exceeds budget, it will be easier to omit non-essential items from the list.

Homeowners should be frank with their IDs on their budget, and try to keep within it as far as possible. The decision to engage an ID firm should not be based on price solely. While many ID firms may offer competitive prices or ‘too-good-to-be-true’ price packages, always check with the ID firms on the actual items included in the quotation. Compare pricing across different IDs helps – keeping it to not more than 5 firms. This is because different ID firms may have their unique selling point and having too many firms to compare with may not necessarily make the decision process any easier.

To have an idea on the workmanship provided, visits to actual project sites would help. Looking at the promptness of the IDs/firm’s response to inquiries (via email or text messages) can also give an idea of the responsiveness of the ID when he/she is working on your project.
