Can someone pls explain what is the difference between interior designer, contractor and sub-contractor? How do u guys decide whom to engage, and for what jobs?
Thank you!

There are difference between the Contractor and the ID.

For ID firms, they will engage staff to do very nice drawings to reflect your concept. It is always that the designing cost is in the renovation price. ID firms tend to narrow all the things to details to the smallest details. a cupboard is a cupboard, but they will list how many doors, how many column.... Alot of the renovation amount will go to the designing fees, payment of the shop rental, payment of many staffs, advertisement. Hence, they will try to cut cost here and there. My friend is working in ID firm and he told me alot.

For contractor, usually they will run on their owm or with partners. Contrators may not have that sophisticated drawings. they willl show you the concept. Look for contractors who have done contract with hotels becasue hotel have high standard. They have sub-contractors that they often use. Plus, cost is cheaper because htey are able to buy in bulk and save alot on advertisement.

Sub contractors are being engaged by Id and contractors to do what they specialized in. like they will have lightings sub contractor, water sub contractor, tiling sub contractor..etc

I can suggest that you can get quotation on the various ID that you like and then get the same apple-to-apple quotation with the Contractor. Then you will know the difference. Also so visit previous contractor's client's home to see the workmanship to have confidence.

I do have a good contact on the good contractor. If you want i can give you.

hold your horses.dont get too excited about doing up your own house by yourself.things that need to be considered.

1.need a permit to do masonry works.(subcon doesnt have that)

2.subcons are mostly dont hope too much about warranties.

3.dont know when will they dissapear.for they are only subcons.

4.subcons only do what u want and get their $$ whether its permitted by HDB or not they dont give a damn about it for that is your responsibility.but for id or contractors they would do it according to hdb requirements for their license is in stake.
and the list continues.......

look at star's doesnt even have a cabinet base.onces u wash the floor there goes the cabinet.

even when a choke occures, bye2 cabinet

thats the disadvantage of doing something u're not meant to do on your own.
