Here’s why YOU SHOULD Plan Your WiFi Set Up Before Renovation.

You might not think that interior designing has anything to do with good WiFi connection, but you’d be completely wrong. In fact, it’s quite essential to plan your home layout and design in a way that can boost efficiency to the WiFi connection. It’s just like planning your plumbing gas lines, and electrical wiring, WiFi setup should also be planned before renovation, as internet connectivity is just as much an essential part of our lives.

Here are some COMMON DESIGN PITFALLS  that can lead to bad connectivity throughout your homes:
  • Hiding the router inside shelves because it clashes with the decor, which can hinder WiFi signals. Walls and physical obstacles can seriously hinder the connection, thereby resulting in slow speed.
  • Concrete walls and excessive use of metal, which can lead to slow internet speeds as WiFi signals get absorbed by the concrete and metal.
  • Placing the router near water or glass, which can also disrupt the WiFi frequencies.
  • Placing the router at ground level in a multi-storey home, which can result in poor WiFi coverage, as WiFi signals travel better horizontally and downwards.
  • Placing the router in a non-centralized location, which can result in dead spots in the house.

These are some major issues that your WiFi connectivity and signal spread can face due to the interior design. Note that many of these problems occur when the router is not suitable for the size of the space.

It’s important that you choose the right router that matches your daily internet activities and size of your home. Here are some options accordingly:

1.  For large homes / smart homes, you may consider using mesh routers such as Google Nest Wifi

If you live in a large home and don’t want any dead signal spots, then you should opt for the mesh routers. The difference between mesh routers and normal single router is that a mesh system provides multiple access points by sharing the network across multiple devices located throughout your home, while a normal single router routes internet traffic between a connected modem and your computers or gadgets from 1 single point, and the signal it sends can only reach out to a limited space. Therefore a mesh router is your best option to eliminate dead spots in a large interior with multiple rooms and partition walls.

The flexible system of Google Nest Wifi has additional router points that can cover up to 2200 sqft per router and up to 1600 sqft per point, ensuring that you can access the internet from any and all parts of your home.

My sincere appreciation and salute to Ms Vernice for a job well done.
Due to an ugly situation at my mother’s common toilet/ bathroom, I need to get the whole floor area repaired and renovated soonest possible for my 71 yrs old mom.
Due to COVID-19 lockdown, I have asked a number of Contractors n interior designers for help. However, none could get me an immediate start date. My mother could not wait till end of the year that most contractors offered.
My mom could not stop urging me day to day to continue finding a solution. I was devastated.
I did not know Rockstar Interior or Ms Vernice personally. She was referred to me by a friend who assured me that Vernice is known to be fast n efficient.
At first I was skeptical and doubted if she could even do anything magical given the Covid-19 situation and given all the negative responses I received from other contractors/ interior designers past 2weeks.
On the next day, before I could even remember to call her, Ms Vernice already made the first move calling me. Introducing herself, she listen diligently to my ordeals. She asked for my intentions , plans and budget. She made wise recommendations and suggestions. I stressed to her my main priority is immediate start date and I will not accept or agree to anything which takes more than 2 weeks.
2hours later on the same day, she called me and assured me all will be done within 2 weeks.
( WHAT???)
Vernice first called me on a Sunday, 20th September. On 1st October @7:30pm , my mother’s face is gleaming with satisfaction. She can’t speak English but she voluntarily showed Vernice a thumbs up 👍.
Yes, it’s all completed within 12 days, as promised. My mom bathroom toilet now is not only functional but look modern n stylish.
Thank you Rockstar.
Thank you Ms Vernice.
You Rock !!!

Jermine was my interior designer from Sozo Concept. The thing that captured my attention the most: her dedication to making my dream house come true. She sought to constantly understand what I want, and she worked hard to make sure it happens. At times when something is impossible, she will very tactfully inform me why, and how she has already tried all ways to do it. She also has a very high standard with her own work, as seen from how she coordinates with her contractors. With this, I could trust the whole process to her, literally without worrying at all. Even though every reno will have hiccups (and Jermine rectified them all) I am very very satisfied with the end result. Highly recommend her services with 2 thumbs up 👍👍👍

IS OUR HOUSE OR HIS HOUSE !!!

Nowadays there are lots of ID firms advertising online involving positive feedback about IDs. Deep in my heart, I know that not all these feedback might be genuine or reliable. Most of these positive feedback are either without house owner’s endorsement, photos taken with ID and house owner together or with genuine house photos. After browsing through many such stories, I realized this ID by the name of Brice has taken photos with a number of happy owners.
When I first met Brice, I did not find anything special about him. Not to mention that his quotation is not the lowest I have received. The only things that caught my eyes are his passion in design and sincerity. He told me he doesn’t take up every single project he is offered because he does not want to over-stretch himself and end up disappointing the clients he has on hand.
After moving house for a few times with some disappointments along the way in terms of renovation, this might be our permanent house. I decided to engage him as our ID. He took up our project and demonstrated a 200% commitment.
During the design stage, we told him that we are looking for a cozy but not too bright feel, easy maintenance, safe and user friendly for my mum. On top of that, we are very particular about workmanship as well. His designs are creative and he proposed marble-wood-look laminate combination which turned out well for us. Rounded edges at the shoes cabinet and the TV console enhanced the designs and also helped to prevent any unnecessary injuries.
Throughout the renovation, he visited our house numerous times to ensure that jobs were properly carried out within the given time frame and he even participated hands-on within his capabilities. Sometimes he even stayed late at night to ensure the job meets his expectations. He kept us in the loop about the progress throughout. In my heart, I thought that this guy must be crazy !!! But of course, I am grateful to have engaged such an ID who treated my house like his own. I am staying just few blocks away but hardly visit my new house during the renovation because I knew my house was in good hands and ultimately the house was handed over to me with hardly any defects.
2 thumbs up to Brice and Sky Creation, as well as all the men involved such as David (painter/plumber), Ah Kam (carpenter) etc. Thanks a lot.
