Finding a reliable renovation contractor in Malaysia is not easy unless you ask for recommendations. That’s why we gathered the best recommendations from homeowners and listed them at Recommend.my.

 

1. Replace the front gate

According to one study, changing the front door resulted in the highest return on investment on property value. However, this was mainly for landed property in the US, so for Malaysian landed property, it might be a better idea to replace the front gate.

2. Refresh the Kitchen

Another “high-ROI” move, updating your kitchen cabinets with a new finish or fresh paint, as well as replacing the countertop will give your kitchen a fresh new look. Other renovation ideas for the kitchen are to update appliances and add a tile back splash to compliment cabinets and counter tops. You can even add a kitchen island to give you more working space for preparation.

3. Replace Bathroom Fixtures

Chromed items like towel racks, shower mixers and toilet paper holders tend to fade over time, especially in our humid weather. New bathroom fixtures like faucets and shower heads are one of the easier ways to boost your property value.

4. Update Curtains

Curtains are a decorative addition to any home with a practical purpose. Updating the curtains with new materials and updated designs will help give your home a new and fresh look while maintaining privacy in the home. While you’re at it, you can also update the upholstery for some of your signature pieces of furniture.

5. Add Storage

You can never have too much storage. Extra storage in the kitchen, bedrooms and living room keeps everything organised, and with everything neatly hidden away, you get a minimalist feel in your home.

6. Repair Seals, Cracks and Rot

Bare walls can develop superficial but unsightly cracks along its surface (or holes from hanging pictures); the sealant in bathrooms and kitchens will get mouldy; and wooden skirting can face and chip after years of wear and tear. Patch up these areas with wood filler, plaster filler and replace sealant to make everything good as new.

7. Update Electrical Switch Plates

One simple way to modernise your home is to change your switch plates. You can also add dimmers to the dining area and hallways for lighting options during different times of the day.

9. Improve the landscaping

Sometimes all you need is a gardener to remove the weeds and tidy up the plants. But if you want to give your exterior a fresh new look, consider getting a professional landscaper to help out.
