With SOPs Easing Up, Malaysians Look Forward to Home Makeovers for a Brand-New Start
“Over the last two years, Malaysians have spent much of their time at home and many have had to invest in carving out spaces in their homes to enable them to set up workstations as the pandemic required the majority of the nation to work from home. Now that we are slowly transitioning back to the office and can now host visitors, many are looking to refresh their spaces at home. Whether it is redesigning the entire home, or adding statement pieces to a room, we want to help our customers realise their dream homes with the opportunity that will allow them to explore their creativity without financially burdening them,” explained Andrew Jong, Managing Director of Personal Financial Services of HLB.
According to Kwek Kon Hao, Team Lead of Dresid, one of the more common issues faced in any home remodelling project is going over budget as oftentimes homeowners do not have a clear vision of what they want to achieve and tend to add on smaller side projects that may seem like a good idea but will inevitably add to the cost and prolong the entire remodelling process.
“There are a few simple tricks that can help anyone keep to their budget without hindering their vision of a beautiful home makeover. Homeowners can start by envisioning the size of the project they want to undertake, be it a minor facelift or a major overhaul and then create an accurate budget by getting three or four quotes from different suppliers. Refrain from side-tracking from the main plan by determining your priorities as well as the timeline needed to accomplish your goals. Writing down plans and ideas on a vision board will also help keep you and your family focused and on track but more importantly, within budget,” said Kon Hao.
