Review for Medha Lim

I enjoyed my design and renovation journey with Woon as he was able to pick up nuances of how I prefer to use my space at our initial meeting. The ideas that came forth showed his clear listening as well as his ability to stretch one’s imagination. Spatial planning is often overlooked by new homeowners, and what Woon brings to the partnership is the conversation of space. How one intends to use it, where one needs it more, or less, and what else to consider. He also managed the renovation work well with the contractor, providing timely updates and check-ins.

Review for Klein Ng

Look no further if you want to avoid the cookie cutter look for home! I have received countless of praise for my home sweet home!!

I would like to take this chance to thank Raymond for his hard work during the past 3 months!! 

Raymond has done a fantastic job in designing my place. He is bold, creative and has a good colour sense and an eye for detail. Me and my spouse were already impressed with the first drawing that he proposed to us. 

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Raymond to any of my friends or family members!! 

Keep up the good work!

Review for Tiffany Ooi

We scoured the internet and had many meetings with various designers for a full renovation on our resale unit. Arjan’s style really stood out as clean and timeless but far from boring.

Loved how he was the only one who thought out of the box in a practical manner with regards to space remodeling and it worked perfectly (despite our reservations in the beginning).

He also strikes a rare and nice balance between providing recommendations and adhering to your requirements. Working with him was an enjoyable experience, much to our surprise – assumed we would be pulling out hairs at the end of a big project like this!

Arjan also has a very interesting approach to budgeting, we think this works much better than the usual way and helps give a more positive experience to customers overall. Would definitely use this ID company again in future 🙂

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you screen your interior designers?

Whether independent or attached to an interior design company, the interior designers must have a minimum of five years experience and positive homeowner reviews. In order to be listed on our site, we have also painstakingly hand picked these interior designers that have a strong design-centric portfolio.

How does The Happitat differ from traditional interior design companies?

In so many ways! The Happitat allows you to choose the individual designers and not just the firms. You are given the freedom to browse through our interior designers’ individual portfolios and read real homeowner reviews. This ensures that you will be confident and happy with the interior designer you pick. We handpicked our accomplished interior designers based on their strong design profiles and guarantee our interior designers have at least 5 years of experience. Meet up with the designer of your choice for a free consultation, no strings attached. 

See more of the difference here.

Why should I browse through individual interior designers and choose who I want, versus an interior design firm that allocates their available interior designers to me?

We believe transparency is key when it comes to happy renovating. By providing you with our interior designers’ experience and portfolios, we give you the opportunity to select the right interior designer for you. This way, you avoid having inexperienced designers assigned to you, or mismatched with designers whose styles do not suit you. By taking the time to choose your own interior designer now, you save time from potentially being disappointed later in your renovation journey.

 

 

Are reviews about the interior designers real?

Yes. All our reviews are sourced from real homeowners that have first hand experience with our interior designers. We value our customers’ opinions and It’s important to us that you feel confident with the choice you make.

Why should I pay a 10% deposit to The Happitat, and the balance to the designer directly when I can pay all to the designer directly?

By paying The Happitat the first 10% deposit, we give you a peace of mind by assuring you the deposit is safe till the designer starts any renovation work for you. You will automatically be covered under the Deposit Guarantee where we protect you and ensure that you will get your first 10% deposit back if the designer goes insolvent.
