Interior design firms hit lull

SINGAPORE: Interior design firms and contractors have reported a slowdown in business of as much as 30 per cent as fewer resale flats were sold. They said there has been a drop in resale transactions since the introduction of property cooling measures. They added this has impacted the renovation business. Firms said they are receiving fewer orders. But with Lunar New Year approaching, companies selling ornamental wall decals reported business rose by more than 30 per cent. They said it only takes 15 to 30 minutes to put up the decals to decorate a wall. The decals are also easily torn down, hence home owners can change the design of the wall any time. aZ-Decor owner Ian Tan said: "....within a day or two, they can put up a new design, a fresh look, for their guests. It's better than the conventional way of repainting the house."
