Engaged Areana to redo our wardrobe and doors. Every good workmanship and service. Highly recommended!
Ken, our ID was the best decision that my husband and I had made with regards to our renovation process. We found him via a good review on Budget Reno Facebook page, and decided to go ahead with him after our first meeting with him as he made us feel very comfortable working with him. He is very sincere and genuine, and we love that he is open to our feedback and not the pushy type.
In each of our meetings, Ken listens to me and my husband trying to figure out what our likes and dislikes are and then proposes new adventurous ideas that we can toy with that works within our budget and suits our needs. My husband and I love his design and the fact that Ken challenges us to try different styles and colors for our new home. We absolutely love the look of our new home and how functional the use of space is.
His motto is “Ah Ken 做美给你!” 😛 And he always does his best to do well to deliver what he promises and more.
He is super quick and responsive, and is always approachable and open to discuss and fix any hiccups that we face.
We have already recommended him to a few of our friends who have engaged him as well and would hope that more would be able to experience the wonderful working relationship that we had enjoyed with Ken. Thanks again Ken!
Engaged Roy Lin as our ID, he is very Responsible and Efficient in our need and issue of our BTO flat. He is also knowledgeable and creative on the team and design we wanted. Will high recommend him as your ideal interior designer.

Thanks Arena creation – Zeenn Tay for professional advise and design opinions .A very responsible and easy going person. Appreciated for deliver my house on time and nicely. Not to worry on the price, a reasonable and affordable price range with good qualities.
We would like to say gracious thanks to Roy our ID, was recommended by our relatives. He really did a great job and provide us with Creative ideas when we having issue during choose material and Colour. When we have told him what kind of design for our new house. He certainly able to understand and cater to it. Renovation price is very affordable, not to worry even though is affordable but quality still Tip Top. He is also very flexible and easy approach person, that why we can understand he is always busy. He is the person will make sure he settle it and put his heart into his work. We will recommend him to my relatives and friends to render his service. It was a memorable and great experience with him. Once again thank you very much!!!!
We engaged Jasmine from the Ang Mo Kio branch. The price quoted is very reasonable and she tries her best to fit our design to our tight budget. Appreciate her taking time to personally buy our lightings and wall fans from Johor in order to help us save cost. She is always prompt in her reply to us…even during late nights. We called her very often to confirm the purchase of our things and she is always very patient with her reply. Even aft the reno is done, she is very helpful in rectifying some minor problems. We would also like to thank her colleague Dave who constantly help out to monitor and answer some of our queries. We are very happy with the service provided. And strongly recommend her to everyone else.
After going through multiple IDs suggested by Qanvast, I just dropped by their office to make an enquiry and was greeted by Dennis. The package that he shared with me was very attractive and a after some discussion with him and Ken, at a later date, we engaged their services.
The renovation encompasses the kitchen and both toilets so it was relatively a small project but they followed through with the same rigour as their other projects. Design stage was handled well and they input their professional opinions when they see fit, and tell us if what we want isn’t quite ideal. Honesty is definitely on of their strong traits.
From start to finish, they attended to our concerns (which were plentiful) and reassured us that whatever concerns will be addressed, even after handing over of the project.
Both Ken and Dennis had done a commendable job and my mother and I do like how the areas concerned turned out and have received complements from some of my friends and family members as well. Won’t hesitate to engage them again if we ever decide to reno the other rooms.
Dear Areana Creations Management
We would like to make a commendation on your ID, Francis Yeo (from Blk 233 AMK outlet), who had given us excellent and hassle-free renovation experience for our resale flat located at Punggol Drive.
Background – We were referred by a friend to go to XXX ID firm. Upon contacting the firm, we were randomly assigned Francis. As our friend couldn’t remember their ID name anymore – their reno was a couple of years back… After a site walk and consultation, Francis informed that he had been transferred to Areana Creations. Initially, things were abit complicated but we still proceeded with Francis’ service as the quotation was indeed very competitive (compared with over 10+ quotes) and he was indeed patient and friendly…
Francis immense knowledge in ID and project co-ordination were unquestionable. This gave us the faith to trust his advices and recommendations. We knew that he would not fail us. Even though this resale flat required alot of creative renovations and ideas, and a need to work within tight timelines, we were certain that we could fully entrust and dependent on Francis based on his wide experiences (no doubt on that).
Strength – Francis was a very hands-on ID, he would voluntarily take on some tasks which were out of his core responsibilities. This amazed us as we thought that those jobs should be done by his contractors/vendors. However, his reply would always be ‘It’s ok, no problem, I can do it, I will rush it out for you’. We were truly very touched and thankful to him for his great initiatives and also being meticulous in every aspects (we were stress-free). And, not only he was able to manage my home renovation efficiently, concurrently, he was also handling other projects. His ability to multi-task and efficient working attitude had proven us that we had engaged the right person!
EQ – Francis had demonstrated high EQ and cordial working relationships with other contractors (such as electricians, plumbers, carpenters, etc.). We viewed this as vital importance, since he would need to manage the workers and to give them instructions and timelines to meet. On the other hand, he would also ensure that our expectations were met. Tough job indeed.
Throughout the project, though there were hiccups (this is normal for any projects), Francis never fails to rectify the issues and timely keep us updated on the progress. He is so dedicated that we spoke via phone over 12 midnight almost everyday and he continue to show energy and positive attitude to complete our demands….
It was indeed a great pleasure working with Francis Yeo and we (including our parents) were very satisfied with his work and positive attitude. We would definitely recommend Francis to our families, relatives and friends should they need to look for ID.
I have a very huge network of clients due to the nature of my work, and I demand that the clients I referred to Areana has to be assigned to Francis. This is the reward for his commitment and he deserved all the referrals.
We believe that Francis Yeo is a great asset to your company and he will continue to shine. We wish both Francis and Areana Creations the very best in your future endeavours. Cheers!
First of all, we like to thank Areana Creation for the hardwork and effort they have put in for us. We had our dream house turned into reality by Areana Creation. From conceptualizing to execution of the entire renovation process, it was an extremely awesome experience.
Dave Wong was our ID in charge and he was patient, understanding and most helpful when we were busy with our own schedule. He provided excellent services to ensure our renovation was smooth and successful. Sometimes when we were unsure, he would offer us his professional advice and it helped us out alot and improved the aesthetics of the house.
We highly recommend them as they are willing to listen to your needs and wants, providing affordable and value for money solutions to our renovation needs instead of hardselling which many ID’s does.
Would like to say a big thank you to Dave Wong for helping out with my renovation work. While I did propose some changes along the way, he has always been patient, helpful and responsive throughout. Furthermore, the quote was really good too! It is a great pleasure engaging him for the renovation work
Would like to say a big thank you to Albert and Dennis for their effort in completing my house renovation as soon as possible because of what had happened to me previously. They were professional in doing their job and the quality of workmanship done in terms of carpentry and others to my home is of exceptional quality. Those looking for an excellent and reasonable price ID firm should look no further and engage Areana Creation. They are always willing to help you in your reno budget and always give you ideas of what kind of concept you want for your house. Great design and excellent workmanship by them. Thank you so much once again to Albert and Dennis for the help you have offered me…😄
We got to know Areana Creation Interior thru’ the web and happened to meet Ken the ID.
We like his professional attitudes that he was not a pushy ID that keep pestering us to engage him.
We have a problematic flat from HDB that the flooring not level(about 2inches). He did help out to liaise with the HDB main contractor to make good before started the tilings.
Throughout the renovation, Ken did a great job that advised us to make the flat look spacious like using bright tiles and paints. Ken’s has very tremendous after sales service that touched up those tiny defects that due to weather changes.
We rated Ken a 5-star ID in Interior market.
Engaging Areana Creation Interior Design was LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT. My wife and I were walking along the shophouses and saw the interior design firm. we entered with no promises, just to see the packages. Ken Bong is the interior designer in charge of our house and i have to say he did a real splendid job in this! He has never failed to deliver his promises and everything is in good order and of the highest quality! He is one meticulous designer and we do not have to worry with him in-charge! He is our highly rated best designer!
Roy is amazing!!! He turned my hut into a palace! So many other id companies quoted me sky high. Roy gave the bestest price to match my budget and turned my home into a piece of art! Job well done and workmanship is awesome! Best part is he is 24/7 reachable! A joker he is and u will feel at ease with him around you. He will make you smile, he will make you feel comfortable. At the end of the day, he will make you very satisfied.
Would like to take this opportunity to thank Zeenn Tay for a good service when renovating our apartment.
Thank you Ken!!
Ken had been patient with me while helpful during the renovation of my place.
See… I have something in mind yet failed to be able to communicate out. Ken helped me in these areas. I am sure no renovation is easy bit but Ken manage to do his best everytime he can. I think the rapport and support Ken gave deserved thumbs UP.
Good to always go for 猪杂汤 together after renovation discussion.
All my friends comment how lovely my place is. Thanks Ken
We would like to commend Dennis Chen for diligently seeing through our renovation process till the end 🙂
He was very patient and attentive to our requests throughout. When things went wrong, he tried his best to help us rectify as soon as possible, even if it means making multiple trips in person to our house. He also gave us practical tips that helped us save on unnecessary expenditure. Most importantly, we found him trustworthy and responsible.
Will definitely recommend Dennis and Areana Creation to friends! 🙂
Thank you for helping us to replace our present house gate in such a short period of time. We appreciate your kind assistance!
After going up and down surveying so many IDs, We finally settled for Roy Lin from Areana Creation Pte Ltd. His quote was one of the most competitive for the works to be done. Managed to hit it off with Roy after a few discussions. Both me and my wife liked Roy’s friendly and approachable character. A very cool person who has a lot of patience. Even when at times we’re indecisive, he will take his time to go through the things with us and offer his suggestions, always with a big smile.
I would definitely be lying if I were to say there were no hiccups during the renovation process but Roy was always there to say “No worries bro, I’ll settle this for you”. Even when I’m at work at times, he will drop by my unit on my behalf to settle certain things.
Can expect superb after-sales service from him as well. He came down personally to help to clean some stains on my tiles and he will never let the home owners do any work. He is someone who really takes pride in his work. He gives a lot of discounts as well so don’t forget to check him out. The rest will be history. Good job bro and I wish you all the success in your upcoming projects!
A really BIG Thank you to Areana Design & William Soh.
They had made wonders to my parents’ old & small HDB flat to a pretty cosy place.
Relatives, friends & neighbours who had seen the “new” house all LIKE.
Strongly recommended for their competitive pricing and good service.
Thanks Roy for all the service render. He has gone the extra mile and provided excellent knowledge for me. Well done!!!
I’m glad that i made the correct choice choosing Areana Creation Pte Ltd. My ID: Roy Lin is a reponsible & reliable person, he is never late for our appointment & always try his best to amend his design to my needs. Whenever there is any slight defects which i feedback, his answer is always “No problem Bro, I will settle for you” which made me felt relieved hearing these words & indeed the defects is addressed thereafter. When I am busy & does not have the time to go down for inspection. He will always do the job for me & took photos to show me the progress.Great after sale service as well, if I encounter any problems after we move in, he will still pop by to give his 2 cents worth advice & intro us his contractors to solve our problem. He will also even DIY for us if it’s only a small issue. Overall, I would like to thanks Areana Creation for a pleasant & enjoyable renovation phase.
I would strongly recommend new home owners to look for Roy Lin if you want a ID who is responsible, responsive & resourcesful
We take great pleasure in recommending Roy. He displayed a high degree integrity , responsibility and creativity.
Roy has great communication, listening and organisational skills and provide invaluable guidance in regards to color schemes, furniture selection, flooring and tiling, painting, lighting and accessories. His patience with us was excellence. Highly recommended 👍👍👍👍
Roy did my mom’s house, my sis’s bto and now mine. If you want cheap good and experianced, then i wld really recommend using Areana. Roy is really very responsible and responsive too! Already recommending them to my collegues 😉
I surveyed and sourced about 6-8 quotations from various renovations and ID companies but decided to take Areana Creation because their prices is very competitive.
I was served by Mr Zenn who is very patient with my behaviour and attitude who wants perfection to the renovation of my house. He really went all out to designed and sketched drawings to do layout for my kitchen and common toilet. For my common toilet, I move the entrance as I like my kitchen cabinet to be longer. In the midst of renovation, he will liaise and raised any issues pertaining to any problems that arise and he really did all out to make my house dream come true.
I am really happy with their workmanship and service. Even after the renovation, their after sales service is tip top. If there is any problem, just give him a call and next 2 or 3 days work needed to be done is completed with satisfaction.
I really recommend Areana Creation to any home owners to do the renovation job,
Zenn keep your good work and attitude.
Thanks to Ken for his great follow up and prompt reply for our enquiries and renovation matters. Without him, I can’t move in on time.
He gave a lot of ideas in space planning and designs on what we wish to have. He even went extra miles by putting in effort to sketch some drawings for his ideas at preliminary stage. During renovation, he addressed every issues we raised. Sometimes he was even gan jiong and pissed off than owner for the problems we encountered. He takes the ownership and responsibility in design and renovation.
I would strongly recommend you guys to look for Ken if you are looking for ID who is responsible for your design and renovation!
Well done for the job, Ken!
Very satisfied with my choice, other than being the cheaper quote among other IDs with identical items, the service really served us well. Be it my fickle mindedness, my ID Roy Lin never complained or insisted. Or any changes required during or after reno which is not caused by his work, his honest & reliable quote “don’t worry, leave it to me” just make me feel relieve and comfortably leaving all the work to his team. Not pushy and always honest advice us on what should and what can be left out. His ideas frm brainstorming also creates alot of beautiful choices for my home. Greatly appreciate his hard work and keep up the good work Roy!
We were very lucky to meet our ID, Ken from Areana Creation. The very first meeting with Ken was a very pleasant one, as I had already met 3-4 other IDs/ renovation contractors where the experience was less than ideal, as after the previous meetings, I was left feeling either the IDs person does not clearly have an idea what I will like to do for my home, or they are pushing me to go for something which is way beyond our budget.. With Ken, Ken understands we have a tight budget and tight timeline, but the first thing he understood was what kind of ideas we like, and what we like our home to be like, i.e. the feeling of home to every individual family/ couple. Then base on our ideas, he will propose alternatives if what we initially thought of is really too expensive, such that the end results is what we like and cost effective. Ken also does not push us to go expensive stuffs, i.e. if we wanted to do something that he feels is not worthwhile the price, he will give us his two cents worth so that we do not end up paying for something which is not practical and cost us more at the end of the day.
Throughout the entire process, Ken followed up with us promptly, and he gave us regular updates and assurance on the renovation. Finally we are very happy with the renovation work results and the value added service that Ken provides. Thanks to Ken-we have our own cosy home with the syle we like.
Attention : All potential / future ID seeker like myself once…
We have just moved in to my newly renovated place last 2 weeks ago, finally settled down and I have now some time to write my experience + engagement with my ID. We have gone through a rough 6-8 IDs before deciding on him not because of the price (though his is quite reasonably priced as well), but it’s the service and the feeling of confidence I have with him that made me decided him (but mostly is my wife’s decision la… haha).
Anyway, the original timeline given was 4 weeks, but because we engaged fengshui, changes were required onto the design and so does the schedule due to the auspicious start date, which delayed my ID by a week. So, he now have 3 weeks to complete what was originally 4 weeks planned and that includes changes to the design too ! We were very worried that we might not get the finished product due to the fact that we shorten the timeline & making changes to the design. But… he was very professional throughout and kept offering alternative designs to us, some with no extra charges, but some with (due to additional material required) which is totally acceptable. Best of all, due to the changes, he doesn’t only add more, but he actually subtract the cost of original design as well (there were changes in size as compared to the original assumption).
Overall… he manage to handover the place to us within 3 weeks, but require 1 day of touch up after we move in… which we are more than happy to accept ! He even dropped by after the touch up, to ensure everything was in place properly and wanted to check the night view of the place as well coz usually he is checks during day time (due to the condo’s restriction 9AM – 6PM).
My conclusion :
1) Very responsive to my messages and calls (trust me, you really need an ID that response to you… you would feel better that someone is looking into your concern)
2) Very creative. Due to my changes, he managed to think of a way to make the changes better…
3) Offered very good materials on the carpentry (I wasn’t aware in the beginning, but when I had other vendors coming in and saw what was being done, they were impressed that I chosen those materials but in fact, it was my ID’s idea)
4) Flexible. This is very important… because sometimes he had to accommodate to our schedule to meet up due to our work nature.
5) Finally… pricing. I don’t think they are the cheapest, but as saying goes, “cheap thing doesn’t come good, good things doesn’t come cheap”. I think they are very reasonable in terms of the overall pricing including the variance order (due to the change of design + a few additional add-ons).
So who is this guy I am talking about ? Well… just fyi, I have no relationship with him, but I think at the end of the day, I don’t get just an ID, but a friend as well. Just doing a recommendation as a friend whom I think it’s worth recommending.
My ID, my new Friend : Ken Bong
Both my wifey and myself, we would like to say THANK YOU very much to Ken The Magician, coz he have performed several magics to resolve our issues. If there were more than 5 stars, I would be happily to give more stars !
A good ID does not just completes his required tasks and job but also having the willingness and initiative to go through the extra mile to help out even if it’s not within his job scope. Recommended Zeenn Tay to my good friend’s new home renovation and I am so pleased that my friend is very grateful and satisfied with him. There were definitely hiccups during the renovation process, but Zeenn was very responsible and responsive to resolve all the issues within his means. Not only that, he even offered to help out in certain ways which is not within the renovation scope and ensured everything is ready for moving in. Very proud and thankful to Zeenn!
My brother having problem in choosing ID film for renovating his house..After that I intro my brother to Areana Creation (Zeenn Tay).After meeting
so many ID..Zeenn is a patient id which take time listen to my brother problem and help him to plan the layout.He will give advise what need to be done and what not to be done and try match your budget in making your dream house into reality.
Renovation doesn’t come without any hiccups, but it’s always comforting to hear when your ID says “Don’t worry Bro, I settle for you till you are satisfied.” That’s why I would recommend Roy Lin to my family and friends. He is very responsive, responsible and resourceful. No matter what the problem is, he will always offer suggestions and try to solve it to the best of his abilities. Excellent after sales service as well to ensure that problems we encounter after we move in are dealt with promptly. Thanks for the great job Roy!

Thanks to ID Albert for helping us on our new house
With a low budget but the outcome was fantastic
Our reno was handled by William Soh. A very dedicated and detailed individual who went out of his way to make sure the reno was in order. Most of the time, he was the one pointing out the errors made by contractors and followed through to ensure they rectified the issues. Other than liaising with the different contractors working on our home, he also assisted to liaise with the shop supplying lightings, bathroom accessories, stove and hob. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends. Thank you William & Areana.
