Owning a house in Malaysia is the dream of many Malaysians. It also motivates people to work harder. They are also willing to spend more money on interior designs in order to create their perfect home.
Interior design is the last step in the process of creating a desirable living environment. Usually, renovations will need to be carried out. This can be complicated, owners need to worry about all kinds of factors and details, such as,
1. Destruction, Alteration and Protection Works
Destruction works are common during renovations. A professional contractor will pay attention to the process and steps of destruction to comply with government regulations. Remember to protect areas not under renovation before starting the works to avoid damaging the original walls, doors, floor tiles, etc.
The building of walls, laying of floors must be done professionally and in accordance with regulations. Any shoddy workmanship could lead to future problems such as water leaks, floor cracks and even give you problems with other residents in the future.
3. Water and Electrics
The repositioning of water pipes and electrical wiring will depend on the relocations of the kitchen and bathrooms. The placement of pipes and electric wiring needs to be carefully considered to keep your home looking tidy.
4. Paint and Wallpaper
Choose your favourite wall colour or wallpaper and hire professional contractors to help create the perfect interior ambiance.
5. Carpentry Works
After installing furniture and cabinets, we must check each closing, roller and hinges to ensure that cabinets are stable, smooth and safe.
Doing it yourself is too difficult? It is important to hire a professional and responsible contractor to ensure that you renovate your home smoothly and safely. So how to identify a good contractor? Here are the tips.
- Is the contractor a one-man show?
No doubt, it’s cheaper if the contractor does it all himself. However, it may be more convenient to discuss the project entirely first so that the contractor will better understand your requirements.
2. Contractor has their own team
This refers to when the contractor has his own team of professional workers that can offer a one-stop solution for each service including demolition, reconstruction, floor tile, water and electricity, paint, and so on. There are a lot of renovation companies that hire part-time workers since the price is a little cheaper. However, their handiwork might not be so good. For a better end result, it is always better to choose a renovation company with their own professional team!
3. Refer to previous projects
The best way to judge a contractor’s work quality and ability is to look at his past work. For example, the installation of doors and windows, the floor tile, painting skills or whether or not their past work has had water leakages as an end result and so on. Be careful if the contractor refuses to show you his past projects. It’s important that you are sure that they are able to deliver results that are to your satisfaction.
4. Check the reviews
We often check customer reviews and comments during online shopping. You can do the same thing before you decide on which contractor to choose. For instance, his personality, working attitude, standard price, and so on. Besides good working skills, a friendly, honest and responsible contractor can make customers feel at ease.
