We had our 1st home designed and done up by Aart Boxx Interior. When we need an interior designer to do up our 2nd home, we decided to engage Aart Boxx again without a 2nd thought. They are professional with the designs and suggestions also very patient with our changes and amendments. Ivan was our designer again together Dania who did our home. The good workmanship and carpentry quality are the main reason why we have chosen to go back to them. We are very satisfied with their services and will definitely recommend them to anyone who needs to reno their houses.

We have engaged Shikin from Aart Boxx as our ID. She had catered and designed accordingly to all our requests and needs within our budget. The renovation went smoothly within schedule with her great coordination among different involved parties. She constantly follow up on the renovation progress. Our final house looked exactly as what Shikin had designed. It was a pleasant renovation experience.

After we had several meetings with Hayley and her electrician which we ironed out several details of renovation. I would highly commend that Hayley has been very thorough in her scope of renovation works and gave us a detailed quotation. She was also very helpful and patient as being the first time doing a proper renovation, we had many (silly) questions which she gave answers to. Hayley also helped us translate our design wishes to "contractor lingo" which I thought was the most important part of the the whole project! She was great at that so most of our plans came to fruition. As we were very happy with the experience with Hayley so far, we even decided to do our remaining bedroom which we initially wanted to keep it untouched! Good decision on hindsight! Now our entire home is so beautiful! We almost never want to go staycation anymore and we would want to go home once we done with our shopping outside! Looking around me now I wouldn't have traded it for anything else. In conclusion, it was time and money well spent! We wouldn't have done it an other way! So, if you want to renovate your home, choosing Hayley as your ID will never be wrong!

The experience designing our new home with Shikin was great. She responded fast ( even on weekends and public holidays), paid attention to details to include interesting elements in the design, and had always been easy to speak to (always pleasant in her tone no matter how many last min changes we needed). I appreciate how she understood the design style I was going for and helped marry them with the practical needs of our newly expanded family. For example, she spent some time hunting for and guiding me through the process of selecting the textured wall paint I want to create the wabi sabi ambience i was looking for within budget. She was also a good project manager, always communicating timelines, changes in budget, options and potential delays clearly and effectively. The workmanship of the built in works and installations have been great so far. Felt we were in safe pair of hands throughout the entire process. I would recommend Shikin to anyone who would like a reliable and creative designer - say no to cookie cutter designs!

In the sea of unreliable and snobbish IDs, Keith was a blessing and friendly face I've met after encountering two very arrogant interior designers who deemed my home project is too small scale and low cost of their liking. He was referred by another friend who is a happy client. Not only is he always responsive and reliable, Keith takes the time to understand my needs and budget and gives very constructive and useful suggestions and ideas on how to beautify my home. For a layman this is important as we may miss out some intricate details in home renovation matters. The outcome of my home is high quality. Highly recommended!

"We were looking for an interior designer that has experience in doing lofts and a lot of them don't have the experience. It was also difficult to find an interior designer that would be able to deliver the mirror wall and loft design that we wanted as it was technically challenging. After meeting up with four IDs and speaking to them, we found that Colin had the kind of idea and design that we are looking for. The whole process is very smooth. They didn't need to consult us that often and were willing to try out new things – wall colours or the design of the loft. They are able to come up with several ideas for us to choose from. And some of the options that they come up with are really very daring and refreshing so it’s not like those dull colours. They are not those kind to try and play it safe. They're also able to give advise us on design. For example, for the laminate, they will prompt us to go for certain kinds of laminate that (are) able to blend in with the whole unit and the wall colour as well. Colin would also update us on a weekly basis about the schedule and renovation's progress. Even though he was on Chinese New Year break and there’s a company trip, he managed to keep us very updated. Whenever I reach out to him with questions, he’s able to respond within the day – very fast."

I shopped around for a few IDs and decided to choose Keith Lin at Aart Boxx because he listened and proposed innovative ideas. He also speaks English, which is a big plus. What's delivered is better than the 3D rendering. Over the course of the reno, I've learnt to listen to Keith's counsel and trust his opinions. The reno went smoothly and kept to schedule. There were a couple of speedbumps when sourcing for material but Keith was resourceful enough to find alternatives. Quality of the carpentry was good and the lights give the place a cosy ambience. The light switches were a bit suspect and took a couple of rounds to get right. Overall it was a stress-free reno and Aart Boxx/ Keith comes highly recommended.

I got to know Aartboxx via Qanvast. After speaking to several IDs, Yangming stood up as someone who is very patient, easy going and professional. Their quotation was reasonable and within our budget. I was lucky to have Yangming in this project. Personally, I had no experience in renovation hence I ended up with tons of questions, often requesting for design changes, etc. and Yangming was extremely patient with me. We communicated almost daily within the renovation window and he was always responsive.We had a very ambitious timeline to complete the renovation within 1 month so we did not expect all the renovation works, especially the carpentry to complete on time. We were almost willing to move in with that expectation but Yangming impressed us. He managed to complete all carpentry and foundation work before we moved in. It was truly magical! Although there was a slight delay in the beginning of the renovation Yangming managed to handle the project smoothly.

Aart Boxx did a fantastic job turning our unit into a dream home. Our ID, Keith, listened to us and suggested practical ideas which work best for our home. We were impressed with the workmanship and designs, given the tight budget and timeline we proposed to Keith. And they delivered promptly. Thank you so much Keith. We would definitely recommend Aart Boxx to our friends and family.

We got to know Aart Boxx from Qanvast. The reason why we choose them as we had a very good chemistry after going through a lot of ids. The communication given was really good. The overall experience is alright given that there were hiccups along the way, they were able to iron out the issues. What impressed me was their carpentry workmanship, it was really up to standard and expectation. Though there a little difference in outlook but somethings were beyond our control and accepted anyway. The id was very prompt in updating for sure. What he could improve on was to take note on some pointers that we have stated rather than we remind him. I believe he had many projects in hand hence we had to remind him on certain things. Overall we are happy with the outcome.

“We were recommended to Ivan by a friend and when we met him for the first time we realized he was a friend from poly! Ivan’s honesty and cooperativeness appealed to us throughout the renovation process. We liked that Ivan was helpful by telling us what to do and what not to do especially since we are first time home owners. We have recommended him to many of our friends who have already started projects with him.”
“I found Aart Boxx through my research online. I had specific designs in mind and after seeing the profiles on their website I felt Aart Boxx matched what I was looking for. Our ID, Ivan, was engaging and friendly and gave us a lot of advice throughout the process. He was on par with what we were looking for and this 2 way communication made our renovation journey smoother.”
"I saw Aart Boxx’s posts on Facebook, liked their design and hence decided to give them a try. Our IDs Ivan was creative, resourceful, had a lot of his own ideas, paid attention to detail and gave a lot of useful suggestions throughout the entire renovation process. I really loved the library book shelf they did for us which came with a ladder and he also managed to do a cove lighting in the master bedroom. We found their price is affordable as well and able to stuck to our budget."
