Are You Engaging the ‘BEST’ Interior Designer Singapore in 2021?

From engaging Interior Designers or Contractors alike, there are many at times we see clients spend over $100k on their homes JUST to experience renovation nightmares. Question is, how do you know if you engaged the best interior designer in Singapore for the job? 

Trust us to know that searching for the ‘best’ interior designer for your dream home can be a tiring journey. Taking your chances (and time) with 3 or more design firms can be a long, tedious process, especially with the long anticipation of your renovation outcome and the fear of not knowing if your money is well spent.

The expectations that come from the word “best” vary from different homeowners. The best in design, the best in workmanship, or the best in servicing. Now, we are no experts on determining who ‘best’ interior designer out there, but, we do like to associate the word with qualified professionals who do their best to create a satisfactory experience for homeowners and a smooth sailing renovation journey.

To set a benchmark that separates us from the rest, here are some practices that you can expect when engaging a POSH HOME interior designer.

Fact-finding form. Fishing out the required info

Fact-finding form. Fishing out the required info

When you receive a free consultation from Posh Home, there will be a form at the ready. This form feeds our designers the required property information which our fellow homeowners wish to renovate.

The information gathered will support our designers to do proper planning during the brainstorming stage where they come up with the best proposal based on their creative capability. It will also help with miscommunications or misunderstandings. More information, fewer problems.

 

It is all in the details.. And Costing!

It is all in the details.. And Costing!

Every Interior Design firm has its own set of practices and culture. Costing being one of them, some firms practice the style of ‘bundle’ costings. Much like renovation packages, it lists down all the included items under a lump sum. This method of costing can be convenient and easier to refer to.

However, the vague-ness has a downside to it. Clients could end up with hidden costs to bear or non-inclusive items to consider, leaving many homeowners to surpass their original budget limit without knowing the how and why.

A home renovation usually requires a huge budget to undertake. So, if you are a super saver like the some of us, it is wise to get your purchased items broken down in a detailed costing. At Posh home, transparency is key to gaining clients’ trust. Every expenditure is itemised so that our clients know exactly what they paid for and what to expect.

 

Bringing out client's Dream Home to Life

Bringing out client’s Dream Home to Life

Ever played the ‘Telephone Game’ during childhood? It is a communication team-building activity where participants pass a message from one to another. It illustrates how quickly a message can be altered even when passed from person to person in a relatively short line. In interior design, when discussing things like design concepts, what the owner describes or what the designer understands may not be produced as expected.

With the thought of having clear communication and visual support, Posh Home designers propose 3D designs that include the additional work of “styling”.  It involves including the exact or closest mock-up of what can be delivered in the renovation design to avoid designer-to-client conflicts and to also fulfill expectations.

This leads us to the next point…

 

An Interior Design guideline with customers

An Interior Design guideline that we like to call “SMGQ”

The acronym of this internal Sales team guideline includes Space planning, Mood board, Google sketch-up, and Quotation.

Following this process allows our designers to be more efficient, at the same time, giving our clients a more accurate idea of what their homes would look like.

 

Cloud Documentation. Keeping our clients updated is a priority

Cloud Documentation. Keeping our clients updated is a priority

If you are the type of homeowner who prefers being included during the entire renovation process down to the last grain of details, you are in for a treat.

Living in the 21st century, technology has served its purpose in making everything convenient for us humans. Some of us have taken the advantage of the internet to create beneficial work outcomes with the various online software available today.

Practicing towards paperless documentation, Posh Home is now utilising an efficient system that enables clients to do the following, and more within the palm of their hands:

  • get the latest updates
  • Communicate with us in a designated chat room meant for the renovation only
  • access to relevant documents in a proper filing system

Gone are those days of bulky files, missing conversations, and miscommunications. We bring in a carefree solution, all in the name of cloud documentation.
