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.

everything we wanted and kept reducing the price to secure the job. Finally, met up with TIL, gave their points on what we had in mind; points that we never considered, this got our attention.
They said they supervise end-to-end, and they absolutely did. We were always travelling, but TIL maintained close communication; complete with pics and details.
They took our ideas and made them better. We are extremely happy with the results, and we definitely will use them again for our next project and we certainly will recommend to our friends.

We did an extensive search and spoke to at least 10 ID companies before shortlisting to 3 (TIL being one of them). What made us choose to work with Travis was that he was able to understand the concept/theme that we wanted for our first home. He was very upfront with us on the feedback on our ideas and gave us different options to think about during the process. Given a very short timeline to work with, Travis kept us update regularly through text and pictures of the progress of the renovation that gave us a peace of mind. Despite a couple of hiccups along the way, Travis delivered our dream home with a great service and followup. Thank you Travis for making ur resort dream come true! – Kevin & Gracie

We first approached Tracy, our interior designer, outside our neighbour’s home where she popped by often during their renovation period. Like most homeowners, we compared between 4-5 interior design firms for our home renovation. The quotations given by the shortlisted firms were competitive, hence comfort level and trustworthiness of the interior designer became our key deciding factor. Tracy’s mature and attentive personality stood out from the rest and having seen her frequent presence during our neighbour’s renovation period further boosted our confidence that we could count on her to manage & supervise the project for us.
We were rushing to move in within a month which we understood was a rather challenging timeline. Much to our delight, Tracy had coordinated & worked closely with the carpenters & electricians to complete the renovation works slightly ahead of schedule. Throughout the project, she would proactively update us on the progress of the renovation works via whatsapp with photos. The renovation went well with minimal supervision from us as we knew we could leave the project management in her good hands. Towards the end of the renovation, Tracy also attended to the minor imperfections raised & ensured prompt resolution. In addition, she was helpful in giving us ideas on home decor & furnishing.
We would like to thank Tracy for her professional help, allowing us to have a peace of mind during the entire renovation process. We are satisfied with our new home, all thanks to Tracy and The Interior Lab!

Kevin from 13th design studio is a great, responsible and reliable interior designer. As we have a design/creative background, aesthetics was everything. There were couple of ID companies we’ve seen that couldn’t live up to that. We are glad we’ve chosen Kevin for our home.
The mood ref that we wanted was pretty much carved to stone, he was patient and worked with us as we were pretty anal with the choices of design that goes into our home. He excellently brought that dream home into a reality to us. A dream come true!
ID nightmare are stories we often hear. And Kevin is definitely not anywhere near that. It was a fun and exciting experience seeing our place crafted till completion, there was brilliant chemistry throughout the way in understanding what we wanted. Stress and worry free.
All in all, fantastic and great satisfaction. Seriously, just look for Kevin 13th Design Studio if you want your place done up.✌️

A cosy home with a kitchen island, a house with a nice blend of our favourite colours, wood & vintage tiles … these are some of the ideas I communicated to Philip. He was very open to my ideas and gave his professional design POV too. Throughout the renovation, Philip was very patient with me as I have difficulty in making choices😅. He also went the extra miles to help me despite of his hectic schedule. Philip is a sincere, patient and responsible ID with good eyes for design and details. Good after service too. My house is tastefully renovated; cosy and homely as I wanted it to be. What a transformation from an old-looking flat!! Highly recommended!!
