“Excellent service”Krino was a great and friendly ID to work with. Like most renovations journey, there’s bound to be hiccups here and there. Krino did his best to settle it and ensured we were updated on the progress.
We decided with Areana mainly because of their price, but secondly we felt the most comfortable with Krino and felt he was very genuine and enjoys his work.
As first time owners, we were clueless with what we wanted and even changed our mind a couple of times. He was patient and gave us tips and ideas to create our dream home.
The end result was much better than what we envisioned. I would definitely recommend Areana and would engage them again should I require renoworks in the future. Thank you!Siti FazlinaHometrust, June 2020
“Approchable & Responsible ID”Google search on house renovation started from october last year. Selected Areana Creation after consider the sincerity and professional attitude of the ID I met from three different companies.
No regret on decision of engaging Edwin Fan of Areana Creation for my 30yrs old 5 room flat renovation.
Edwin was helpful , responsive on all my queries along the way.
He gave valuable advices with consideration to meet my budget and expectation. eg. save expenses in unnecessary change of wiring.
With the need of storing some heavy items in one room , Edwin is willing to help me and the worker in shifting the items for the floor hacking & tiling
Although there were some hiccups along the way, he listen attentively and made effort to meet my concern.
Renovation work completed within contract period , rectification work were done promptly.
Quality of work and responsiveness of the ID are commendable.Oh Kim HongHometrust, June 2020
“Attentive designer, no fuss renovation.”I started off searching for an ID firm online, Areana Creations seems to get pretty much good reviews, hence I decided to go have a chat before committing.
Edwin attended to me, we discussed all my requirements, and he gave his valuable opinions and advices. He came back within just a few days with some drawings and floorplan updates, got what we need, and at a reasonable quotation. I am impressed with his attitude, which is most important for me. So I gave the go ahead.
Renovation is chop chop! Things get done very fast but not sloppy, I think he has a very on team of reno professionals.
Edwin listens and gave good advices. The minimalist design is exactly what we wanted.
Carpentry is very good. The alignment is excellent, and finishing is better than all my previous renovations. LIKE.
My only complaint is the electrical guy. The work is completed before I even got the price quotation! So I lan lan have to accept, luckily I didn’t overhaul all the electrical, just some points here and there and quite a number of lightings.
Nonetheless Edwin make up for it by going extra mile in covering the cost for some minor stuff and making some adjustments at no extra cost.
Edwin follows the project closely, provides very good services.
He doesn’t rush you for payment, but also because I am a good payer.

Most people would say that the renovation process is a tedious and tiring journey, but i think that mine was a pleasant and an enjoyable experience! With some design concepts and mood board ready, i shortlisted a few IDs and was rather pleased that the search ended with Jasmine (my 2nd ID) of Areana Creation (AMK).
Jasmine’s a very good listener who understands the client’s concerns (both budget and design) and requirements. We never had problems communicating design/storage details for this renovation. Everything regarding the renovation details between us was made transparent. She provided me suitable solutions to achieve the designs within the budget given. Just when I thought my ideas were well thought, Jasmine and her team will always impress me with more practical and brilliant solutions! Just by studying my mood board and observing my selections during our meetings, she synced with the colour schemes and designs which I may like, and I must say she’s spot on all the time!
The other thing I like about our working relationship was that she respects her client’s suggestions and she’s a very obliging professional. I would always say that we’re actually working in a team and I must really thank her for this teamwork!
Her team of contractors are a friendly bunch and very experienced in their work. I’m glad that I trust Jasmine with this renovation because she has transformed my 40 years old HDB into what my friends and neighbours said “a condominium living room, hotel bedroom, and a Muji inspired kitchen” Interesting? Yes, she did it!Jonathan LimFacebook, 05 May 2020

“Best ID who works with his heart and passion”We bought a resale and got to move in within 3 months from a spacious 5 room flat to a small EC unit. I used the fb platform and sent out my request to get tquotations for a simple renovation. Within 1 day I received messages from 8-10 interior designers asking for my floor plan. Krino was not the first one to message me, but he’s very polite and told me to contact him if I got any questions.
I told all the ID that I just need a very simple touch up for the 5 year-old unit, and to add on a tv console, a book shelf and an altar in the living room.
All the ID immediately told me they had experiences in this field and started showing me the drawings of the tv console with book shelves. All except Krino.
Instead Krino asked me how many people are living there and the dimensions of the furniture that I would be shifting from my old house. I told him that my family consists of 6, including my father in law and helper. Then he asked how old was my fil, and I told him he’s in his 80s and still very fit and mobile. Immediately Krino showed me the pic of how much space an elderly need in order to move about in the living room.
I was so impressed because he’s not just a designer, but he’s also a very considerate person who understands that we need a home, not a house to live in.
So I narrow my search of ID to Krino and other contractor who did the renovation for the seller of the house.
We arranged to meet up at the unit, and Krino came early while the contractor was late by 15-30 mins due to traffic.
The moment the contractor arrived, he took out his laser measuring tape and started taking measurements of the house.
Krino on the other hand, walked around the house and told me what areas to repair and what to add on or replace, eg a ventilation fan in the kitchen if we plan to cook a lot at home.
After that I told both of them about my tight Budget due to ABSD and I could only work out a sum less than $15k for the whole renovation. The contractor was taken aback and quickly told me it’s not an issue. Krino just listened and told me he would work out the quotation and send it to me the next day.
As promised Krino sent me his invoice which was 3/4 of my request, and the contractor took more than 3 days to reply me with the cost about $15k in total.
So verdict: Krino of course!
And I really love his bookshelf design with settee, and the colours combination in the whole house using 3D drawing on his laptop was simply impressive as well.
Krino really worked hard to help me out within the tight schedule.
As I had allocated the movers at the wrong timing (about 2 weeks earlier than expected), Krino helped me packed the furniture and moved them to the allocated rooms at night when the workers had left.
Even after the renovation, Krino would still continue to help me with the maintenance job and liaise with the other counterparts as and when I messaged him. For example the store room door and the blinds which were done by the seller were spoilt, and Krino simply took his tools and came by to my place to fix them, he refused to let me pay for the workmanship.
Now all my friends and relatives love coming to our house for gathering and always amazed by the functional and lovely design done by Krino.
I feel so blessed, because Krino helped created not a house, but a beautiful home for us.
Very functional and very Creative
He looks into all the details without having us to worry a bit.
Excellent service and always ready to help. Thank you so much Krino.
