Last month, local company Absolook Interior Design received international attention when they released photos of their project inspired by Marvel’s The Avengers movie franchise. The renovation was done for a [email protected] 5-room HDB flat. Though the actual cost was never disclosed, it’s undoubtedly one of the more expensive interiors in a Singapore apartment, especially one in an old estate like Queenstown.

How much should you be shelling out to renovate your HDB flat or condominium unit? Well, according to Qanvast, it apparently depends on several factors, like location and theme. Qanvast is Singapore’s first mobile app that helps homeowners get quotes from over 100 interior designers and project merchants.
