Mint came highly recommended from a friend who did a massive renovation on his resale flat. After a home visit of said friend’s house, we decided to meet with Mint. The entire discussion process took about a month and each session would take at least an hour. We were grateful for Mint’s relentless attention to details and at some point really wondered if it was necessary. We were down to 2 interior designers but decided to engage Mint because of her competitive pricing and her meticulous plans that she painstakingly noted down. She was very transparent when introducing materials, their strengths, weakness and also was serious in keeping within our budget. We loved that she gave design suggestions based on our lifestyles and our use of space. She was bold in suggesting certain textures and colours and gave us the confidence to try it out. For example, the use of wallpaper and textured wardrobe laminates. Our lighting, toilet accessories, aircon and curtains were bought from stores recommended by her based on her assurance that after sales service was personally guaranteed. She made good on her word and any problems with installation, defects, adjustments even after handover were promptly resolved. During the renovation when there were problems or disputes, she was always on site to involve us in the resolution. She was very hands on during the entire process and we were confident enough to go overseas trusting her to be present. The workers that were involved were also responsible and took great pride in their work. When our kitchen backsplash was poorly done, Mint arranged for someone else to redo the wall. We could see why Mint could personally guarantee the quality of her company’s work. The renovation process albeit alittle tedious at the beginning was worth it because of the many times we forgot details that were agreed on during the discussion and the many documents we signed on gave us something to fall back on. It has been close to 3months after handover and Mint still replies to our messages almost immediately and we’re confident that we can look for her to solve any renovation problems in the future. Mint is professional and personable at the same time, she fulfilled all that she promised to and gave us a home that we dont want to leave.

We were very lucky to have engaged May Chang. We know she was the right ID because of her company’s well-defined process and thoughtful advices. Clear defined phases and processes Phase 1) 2 rounds of meeting with May Chang for initial discussions followed by finalizing our design. Phase 2) 1 coordinated On-Site visit at our BTO to discuss Vinyl Flooring, Electrical and Aircon Trunking works with multiple contractors. Amidst all those, the lead carpenter was with us measuring specifics (with accordance to our finalize design). Phase 3) 1 visit to Metersquare for confirmation of every detail per room (Down to the level of measurements and color selection). A client signature is mandatory for every “Detail” page to lock down our decisions before any work begins. Most importantly, any additional cost that was discussed during On-Site visit is laid out clearly on the documents and ready for client to review, discussed and sign upon agreement. No surprises with unknown cost happening under the hood as everything has been clearly defined, discussed and agreed upfront. Phase 4) Begin construction Cost The cost of electrical work was what busted our budget big-time. We’ve heard from others to be careful with electrical work as the cost can quickly reach thousands. However, the amount was still way beyond our expectations. May Chang had to subsequently run through with us and cut down on none essentials; so as to reduce costs to affordable range. (NOTE:*Electrical and Aircon Costs are not included in your budget. Minus off 6-8k and that will be your budget for quotation.) Good Artist Collaboration My wife and I are artists and we can understand how difficult it is to work with us. We are very particular with details (e.g. Down to the Hue, Tone, Saturation of each color we picked and how harmonize they are from one room to the next) but it was a joy working with May Chang. Artists to artists, we collaborated by brainstorming ideas and rejecting bad ones. This mutual understanding and effort helps make our house practical, thematically cohesive and beautiful to live in. Construction Phase As many imagine, the construction phase can be a huge headache if it was self-coordinated. With an ID who knows her priorities; is always a blessing. Our families and friends were surprised how quick the renovation was completed under 3 weeks. Friendly workers that I’ve happened to meet while on-site were diligent, respectful and responsive to my requests. I have to give special credit to Ah-A (Lead Carpenter) for always responding to my feedback and requests. While I was NOT on-site, May Chang will proactively send us updates through our Whatsapp group. This was much appreciated and we’ve heard not many other IDs do this actively. For that, she has gain our trust and we feel very confident each step of the way. Taking in Feedback When we found anything that we were not satisfied, May Chang and her team responded timely and efficiently. We understand it’s not 100% perfect on the first run and her team is quick to rectify defects or problems that we’ve found. Post Construction after full payment May Chang and her team ensures continuous support to maintain her company’s good services. Throughout the collaboration, our relationship turn from ID/client to more like friends. General With the above list, you can get a good feel that May Chang is a responsible person. There was a philosophy that she said which makes perfect sense: “I want to do it RIGHT, right from the start, any subsequent trips to rectify problems will only mean additional cost to my company. Thus, I will not provide you sub-standard quality with accordance to the budget you have set”

Mint was a joy to collaborate with. She has a keen eye for details and often identifies issues preemptively that she knows we would be concerned about. She actively highlights the pros and cons of choices we were presented so that we could make the best decision. Above all that, she endeavors to achieve the vision of what we wanted, going beyond what is readily available in the market or what she has done before. Highly recommended if you are looking for someone whom can make your vision a reality and just produce a run of the mill job.
