In one column, put your wants. In the other, your needs. Only then, you can determine your priorities when faced with tough choices. For example, a kitchen remodel might be a must, while plaster ceiling for bedroom maybe can wait.
Make an estimation cost in your head before meet your interior designer and contractor. Then, you and your contractor will be able to discuss what’s possible.
Make sure the timeline for the renovation is cool from any important events going on your place. For instance, you wouldn’t want to schedule any major renovation a few weeks before you host a family gathering.
Some prefer to ask everyone around them for recommendations. But now, there is an online platform like Rekatone.com that can match you with Malaysian interior designers and proceed with online bidding with contractors.
Get prepared for the renovation to take place. reserve storage space for furnishings, or book a place to stay temporarily for the day when the water or electric supply will be turned off.
Select a room that will remain untouched or disturbed by the chaos. Take whatever equipment that might keep you distracted during the period. (TV, electric kettle, yoga mat, earplugs etc.)
Hope this helps!
