We lets our work and customers speak for themselves
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.
