''Via referral from a trusted friend, we engaged Monita for interior design services forward from the point of receiving planning permission for the extension and complete renovation of our home - now a 5 bedroom, detached house situated on the London / Surrey fringes. First meetings with Monita were held in April, with the build due to commence just 8 weeks later. In hindsight we should have appointed Monita much earlier to work alongside the architect, but we were very skeptical of involving an interior designer. We wrongly had negative stereotypes in our head, didn't appreciate the value, and assumed the fees would be a big consumer of our tightly planned budget for a large project.... how wrong we proved to be. Despite my wife and I being employed in busy roles full-time and being parents of two lively under 7-y-o children, we foolishly thought we could play the role between us.
Working hastily within the scope of the approved plans and the desired project timelines, Monita immediately demonstrated her value. 2-D architectural drawings were quickly brought to life - 3-D visuals incorporating her expertise and our lifestyle requirements were presented to us in almost no time. For the first time since the project was dreamt up we had a real feel of what we were working towards - all the ideas brought together and cast onto a 3-D graphic. Not only did the project seem real for the first time, all of the involved parties had a single vision of the goal to reference - language barriers, differences of understanding, personal opinion etc became irrelevant. The 3-D visuals set the goal but that was just the start of Monita's work. Moodboards, budget planning & allocation, room floor plans, room elevations, lighting plans, electrical templates and more were all produced to drive the project to the goal outlined at the start. Each deliverable had a purpose, high-quality presentation, and left no room for debate across the suppliers commissioned to build & decorate. Every chosen fitting had a defined destination down the millimetre - whether it be a shower head or a toilet roll holder, the suppliers were crystal clear on what they had to do. When there was doubt or issue, Monita was on hand - available by phone, impromptu site visit or via a planned meeting.
Historical experience with kitchen and bathroom design was also brought to bear, and ensured quality of service from chosen product suppliers. Monita was able to challenge them where appropriate and also supply products at rates not available via retail routes.
The combination of trade pricing, time saved on design speculation & correction, quality checking of the project against plan, and the benefit of choosing the right products first-time far out-weighed the investment. Our build has completed on time, to the budget we instructed, and has given us back a quality of home we thought only was possible on TV shows.
We would not hesitate to recommend or commission Monita again.''

''Monita is a an extremely talented, reliable, and trustworthy interior designer. I requested Monita's help to design my 4 bedroom house, with a specific budget in mind. Monita has a very good eye in design and product selection, and was able to design the rooms beyond my expectation with such specific budget. I am definitely impressed!
She is a pleasure to work with, and is very understanding of my needs/theme I have in mind for the house. She is professional, approachable and helpful as well (I am currently pregnant, and she has been a tremendous help). She was able to complete the project in timely manner, with good communication. Overall, I am very happy with her service, and would highly recommend Monita!''
- Mrs Angsioco
'' We engaged Monita on a recommendation from a trusted source and we could not have been more pleased. While we had already formed many of our own ideas prior to engaging Monita, Monita took it to another level, probably several levels. She created something spectacular for our Master Bathroom and Hallway and which today we still get many positive comments on. Monita works very closely with you at the planning and design phase and has a brilliant sense of color, space and texture. We were initially reticent about a very small number of ideas, colors or materials but we are glad we trusted Monita as she delivered something way beyond our original vision. She is utterly professional, extremely creative and works closely with you throughout the whole process. I cannot recommend her highly enough.''
- Mr Thomas
'' Having worked alongside Monita for many years, I can without hesitation, vouch for her professionalism, positive attitude and creative skills.
Monita has a unique combination of talents: successfully delivering projects, on budget and on time, and supporting tradesmen; be it with installation documents or directing workloads through on-site consultations. She is also very proactive in sourcing new and interesting products but most importantly in finding solutions to on-site problems. Both her clients and installers value her elegant yet practical designs and her approachable attitude, as well as her commitment to effectively meet her client’s creative brief and budgets.
All of the above will guarantee that by having Monita on-board, your project will be in very safe hands.''
- Ms Sykora
''I am glad Monita helped us with the refurbishment of our house.
Her vision and designs were amazing and she gave us very practical and affordable suggestions to bring our dream home to life.
She was extremely patient with us and her detailed 3d rendering helped us visualise the finished product even before the builders started work. Her selections of paint, wallpapers, furniture and fittings were outstanding.
The builders we employed were raving about her detailed drawings and designs and many of my friends who came home are in awe of the transformation.
Monita was also extremely patient with the builders and ensured they stuck to plan and completed the project on time. This was above and beyond our expectations and we cannot wait to start phase 2 of the project in January.''

'' Monita is an extremely talented designer who has designed three bathrooms for me. She understands the brief immediately and has a wonderful eye for color, detail and products. I would not hesitate to recommend her, and do so very highly.''
- Mrs Katyar
'' Monita designed a bathroom and subsequently two cloakrooms for me. In both projects her creativity produced results with which I was and am delighted. The cloakrooms in particular were a challenge, but her solution makes the most of the available space. I would recommend her without question.''
- Mr Watkins
'' I used this company while working on an exciting 'top end' project in Gloucestershire and was lucky enough to work with the end user and Monita Cheung in person who displayed fantastic empathy , superfluous flair and a keen eye for the details other design consultancies I have worked with in the past seem to miss / neglect.
I would certainly use this company again !!''
- Mr Gibrill
'' I was contacted by Monita Cheung Design Ltd to build one of their designs. As a furniture maker I am contacted a lot from designers and clients who have their own designs, some nothing more than scribbles. Monita Cheung's designs are well detailed, well thought out and easy to understand and follow. It is an absolute pleasure working to these designs.''
