Tips before you start the renovation

start the renovation

Objective of your renovation

You need to first identify why you want to renovate. Is it because you want to beautify a space or because something is broken? If there is no reason to do so, maybe you can wait a few years instead of launching a makeover or perhaps you want to change the Feng Shui of the space you are living in.

Proper Planning is required

Whatever you choose to do, you need to plan carefully. Renovation is not only about breaking down things and changing new ones. It requires you to think about timing, costing and the people involved and deciding on what to do.

Is costing the main criteria?

That will be one of the most important parts of your planning. You need to start with a budget and then work your way from there. Always get a quotation and never overspend. If you think you cannot afford what you want to do, perhaps it is better to cut down the scale or to wait for a later time.

Should you hire a Designer?

If you are giving your home a complete makeover, it would be best to engage an interior designer in Malaysia who will help you to take care of everything. They will deal with the contractors while helping to work within your means. In most cases, the interior designer will be involved throughout the entire process where they will be aware of your budget.

Temporary place to stay

It is most important that during the process of the renovation, are you moving to a temporary place to stay? You need to factor the costing for this as it means uprooting the family for a few months.
