Your All-In-1 Guide To Material Selection For Your Renovation in Singapore

We’re living in a material world (to quote Madonna), and it is very important to pick the right one, especially when it comes to dressing your home. After you have secured your preferred interior designer, chosen your desired layout, made the necessary adjustments, and paid the deposit, you advance to the next level – one that requires you to select materials.

Because this is such a crucial state, your interior designer will usually advise and propose needed materials for your home renovation. You’ll have to choose your lighting, flooring, wall colours, and furnishings.

However, we want to ensure you make informed choices, not one stressed by opinions, budgets, and proposed timelines. This article will point you to the experts on selected materials, so you will not be clueless when you meet your interior designer.
