“If we were to do an expectation vs reality meme, we would definitely say that our reality way surpasses our expectation because Brandon Yuen went above and beyond what was required. We hired Brandon as our interior designer but we found a friend in him instead.
When we first met Brandon, we clicked almost instantly because he was the only designer who can envision clearly what we wanted and he was very straightforward and forthcoming. He wasn’t pushy nor did he try to force us into signing up with the company just because of his sales quota but he was very interested to design our home as industrial design is his forte. We also felt his sincerity in bringing our dream home to life.
From the very first day we signed up with him, he took really good care of us in terms of managing our budget. He also showed great ownership towards our house and treated it as though it was his. We were busy preparing for our wedding then, and Brandon was a great help so that we didn’t even have to worry about our house at all. He went with us to all our shopping trips (kitchen, toilet, bedroom, living room stuffs) just to make sure that all the accessories matches the theme of the house.
We now sit here comfortably in our beautiful home (which received TONS of compliments from family and friends), thankful that we met someone as sincere as Brandon. And the best part is, despite The Mind Design being a new company, we feel that their quality of work, product and professionalism are so much better to that of other so-called ‘renowned’ companies. Brandon (and the team behind The Mind Design) is (are) the designer(s) to go to if you want your dream home a reality. He’ll make the magic happen
Thanks for everything, Brandon!”

“They didn’t nicknamed Jihan as Fast and Furious for nothing.
She managed to speed up the entire renovation process just to accommodate to our tight schedule. We were unsure ourselves if it was even possible to start designing and complete the renovation of our new home within 4 weeks, but glad that we found Jihan from The Mind Design.
Jihan worked with us closely throughout the entire renovation from taking measurements, choosing of colors, right down to deciding where to put our framed pictures. We had a tight budget and she worked with it to complete our dream home. I want to specially thank her for her honest opinions and attention on the smallest of details. She did an awesome job overseeing the entire renovation process, even though we barely meet over the whole duration.
The eventual look of our home is as close as it can get from the 3D drawings generated. Kudos for Jihan and her team. Really happy with the results.”

“The Mind Design ID service, design and carpentry workmanship is splendid!
Senior designer Yiyi Lu is very attentive and understanding to our need. She is an excellent designer as she can integrate creativity with functionality. We are
very impressed with the home design. Besides designing work, Yiyi also the project manager for the renovation. She followed through the whole process from carpentry materials, lights, wallpaper selection to construction so as to ensure that the completed reno is exactly the same as what she had drawn. Credit have to be given to the carpentry team and electrician too. Their workmanship is excellent and are always ready to offer additional services at no additional charge.
Overall, Kudos to Yiyi Lu and her team in building our dream home! This is the best renovation experience ever, highly recommended!!”

“We have done our research and met several IDs before deciding to engage Yiyi Lu from The Mind Design. Have seen many of her creations on numerous Reno websites and were very impressed. Keeping in mind that we will be working closely with the ID during the Reno process thus we prefer someone whom we feel comfortable with. Yiyi is the one! She is able to provide good suggestions according to our specifications and listens to our ideas & concern. Although the rectification of defects took quite a while by the developer but Yiyi is still able to meet the renovation timeline as promised.
All thanks to Yiyi & her team of contractors for taking our ideas and transforming them into reality!”

“We’ve worked with Don from Mind Design for renovation works and are very pleased with his services. He shares with us, practical ideas and designs and does not charge exorbitant prices. His quotation is very reasonable and does not recommend unnecessary works. When there were some defects found after renovation, we called Don and he’s very responsive. He is very prompt in coordinating rectification works. After sales service is so important and he provides that. Overall we’re very satisfied with Mind Design.”

“We visited a few IDs before we decided to work with Sam on our house renovation. Sam was recommended by an ex-colleague who assured me that the service and workmanship were something that I do not have to worry about. After settling the quotation, Sam provided the 3D drawings within a week. After a discussion on the designs and selection of laminates, he provided the revised drawings within a week and we were ready to start our renovation the following week. He coordinated with the electrician and followed strictly to the date and time we needed to start renovation without the presence of my husband and I. He helped us choose lights, curtains and sofa colour and provided suggestions on any big or small things that we asked him. Even after we paid him in full, he still arranged the carpenter and painter to help on the very minor touch-ups of the paint and fixtures he built. My husband and I have no complaints or regrets engaging him because he nabbed the look and feel we want and made the whole renovation process a fuss-free one. We would highly recommend our friends to use Sam if they are looking for IDs. Many thumbs up for his great service and dedication to get our dream house ready!”

“We engaged Sam from The Mind Design as we felt the most comfortable with him among all the IDs that we visited.
From design stage to advising on materials and colors all the way till finishing, Sam was very helpful in giving us professional advice, exuding his many years of experience.
We are definitely impressed with the whole project with Sam. The finishings were beyond our expectations and Sam delivered quality workmanship as promised. Most importantly, he also managed to keep costs within our budget without compromising and cutting corners.
Well done to Sam and his team!”

“ I am so very impressed with the advice, suggestions, quotation, interactions, workmanship, professionalism, efficient installation of the vinyl flooring, cabinet doors and backsplash for my house. Sam is so friendly and non-demanding & able to accede to my request for quick installation before my housewarming date. I will definitely recommend Sam again to all my friends. Thank you Sam! ”

“ To The MIND Design
We just wanted to thank Sam for coming up with such a wonderful design for our house. The overall service and follow-up was excellent. Sam would get back to us as soon as he could. Sam is someone who is very efficient and willing to go beyond his job scope which made the whole renovation process smooth sailing. He also managed to finish everything according to schedule.
We were very satisfied with his design especially the kitchen design. Sam was able to suggest to us designs that could maximize space use to its best. We have made several changes along the way but Sam was very accommodation to the changes. We are very happy with the end result and his service was excellent.
Overall, we found the workmanship and service was good. Even though there were some minor issues from the renovation and after the renovation, Sam was prompt to rectify these issues. We strongly recommend The MIND Design to other homeowners. ”

“ I am pleased to write this review for Yiyi Lu and her team. I happened to find out about her in one of the TV episode “Project Dream Home” that she participated in. Needing a renovation for my investment property, I called and she agreed to renovate the unit within our specified budget. Little did I realize how that request would become.
After working with Yiyi on this simple project, I felt very comfortable with her professionalism and confident in her abilities.
I have subsequently used Yiyi’s services on my own primary residence. Our request was to have plenty of storage without sacrificing the beauty and without the heavy look that usually accompany design with plenty of storage. Yiyi handled the job extremely well, arranging contractors, overseeing all of the work and selecting all of the colour for the wallpaper, curtain and sofa. Her very effective mixture of mirrors and natural stone has dramatically capture the beauty of our surrounding, making it seem as if we are living in the out-of-doors and extending that feeling of openness throughout the whole living room. The hours that she spent going through the many different aspects of the renovation further earned her my respect. She has a keen insight that allows her to see a solution to a problem quickly and efficiently. I am pleased with the calibre of the work and the fact that she can watch the bottom line. The job was completed on time AND on budget AND the striking appearance of the interior of our home has been apparent to anyone who enters the front door. You can’t ask for more than that.
I have no reservation whatsoever in recommending Yiyi and her team to anyone with a home that needs work. With Yiyi and her team, you will receive excellent service, quality craftsmanship and value for your investment. ”

“ I chance upon Yi Yi when I was looking for Interior Designer. I needed someone who can give me the refreshing ideas with good theme, good design taste and clever spatial planning. I approached a few IDs to provide quotation and perspectives. Yi Yi matched my preferences well to provide the design. Needless to say, I signed up for the job with her.
In particular, she did well in her design with good sense of colour matching, dimensions and spatial planning. She displayed meticulous attention to details during the execution phase. She coordinated the works well with good scheduling and planning.
Yi Yi showed professionalism in her area of work and the final result speaks for her. As an experienced professional in the Development sector, I can see her potential.
I will not hesitate to refer her to Clients in future. I wish her well in her future endeavors. ”

“ It has been a pleasure working with our interior design Yiyi. My wife and I had wanted a Victorian-theme for our new residence. Despite Victorian-style design not being her forte, Yiyi accepted our assignment and worked with us in designing the dream home that we wanted. We had given her a tight schedule as we wanted to avoid 7th Lunar month. Despite the tight schedule, Yiyi was able to deliver as promised and the quality of work was satisfactory. There was no doubt of their commitment to our project as we saw on a few occasions that renovation work was still ongoing at night. A commendable effort by Yiyi and her team! ”

“ My husband colleague has previously engaged The Mind Design so she recommended Sam to us based on her good experience working with him. Indeed, Sam was amazing and my husband and I actually went back to him again for our second renovation when we shifted to another place. Sam is a brilliant designer; he would listen to us and shared with us his ideas. The piping in my master bedroom’s bathroom looked quite unpleasant so I actually voiced it out to Sam. It was more of just a comment but Sam really took all our feedback into consideration and would try to improvise on them. We were really impressed by how he took an initiative to conceal the piping, making it look much better after that. For any defects, he would not delay nor pull a long face to get them fixed. His working relationship with his carpenters are fantastic and all the parties involved in the renovation were very reliable. Some designers tend to make empty promises but Sam is not the kind who would simply paint a beautiful picture for the homeowners from the start. He is realistic about the timeline and expectations and would explain to us reasons why he thinks some of the things might not work for our home. We fully recommend The Mind Design to anyone who is looking for interior designers! ”
