    Confused pls share your experiences with interior design companies and contractors

    Hi all,
    I've heard of some negative stories from my friends about poor workmanship and contractors who went back on their words, charging more than what was agreed on before the start of the project.

    I wish to start this thread to get everyone who have had very bad or really good experiences with various interior design companies or contractors. I'm currently looking for an ID & contractor for my 4/rm resale flat and i'm totally spoilt for choices as there are simply too many interior design companies in sg. And it seems really difficult for me to get really helpful reviews on the ID companies/contractors on the internet.

    So, does anyone have any good ID/Contractors to reccommend, to shun any ID company or contractor or any good advises for those out there who are sourcing for one? Thank you

    p/s: I dont know if this forum allows anyone to post up company names or stuff. Do PM me if you have advises for me. thank you very much

    hi Lleenn, i paid about 50k for my condo's ID.. they did a lot of things from curtains, TV section etc.. basically what they did was design it out and then listed the works to be done. a professional ID should do a check of your house first to see what may go wrong during the process. I had quite a few areas i had to fix before it could be done well

    Thumbsup Curtains & Blinds

    Hey Guys,

    something to share. i got a good curtains deal for my whole 4 room flat less than 1k.

    look for jayden loh @93271836
    Singapore Curtains Pte Ltd (you can google them!)

    the sales man is a nice guy that gives free quotation and design guides.
    in fact we found one cheaper thn what they quote and cloth is nicer but eventually i told them and they offered to look for the cloth and requote us !! which is in the end lower thn the other curtain man, hehehe.

    well, i am posting here cos i felt his passion and gd service.
    he seems a boor man but he is nice.. =)

    thanks to him! our curtains brightens the whole living rm!

    No, Personally I've never experienced any fraud from ID and contractor.

    If you are unsure about ID which you are going to hire, first go through his previous ID projects - budget, meet the people where he has done ID or have telecon etc, might help you.

    i do agree with you too!
    and the easiest way to get the best contractor or ID is through referral

    Some of them have poor work ethic. They made us choose expensive supplies but they did the work poorly.

    some of them can really be quite rude when you notice some errors in their work or ask them questions.

    Be careful of those that charge very high and use expensive materials.
