Are you having second thoughts about buying new property in Malaysia lately? You’re not alone.

According to Knight Frank Malaysia managing director Sarkunan Subramaniam, the delayed recovery momentum and rising unemployment has caused potential home buyers and investors to delay making big-ticket purchases.

What do you do when the COVID-19 situation has affected your ability to upgrade your homes, yet you are forced to spend more time at home? One answer is to renovate your existing home.

That’s exactly what these owners did. And the results of these exterior house designs are sure to make their neighbours take a second look.

Terrace house in BK2 Kinrara

This double-storey terrace house in BK2 Kinrara was overhauled with a modern facade.

The simple but striking geometric design was done to increase the liveable space and enlarge the compound, while keeping the exterior house design sleek and utilitarian. The bedroom on the second floor was extended over the driveway, with full-height bay windows. And, by removing the front wall and replacing it with a four-panel autogate, it’s now easier to park two cars in the driveway.

This home in PJ was given a total makeover inside and out, and now has a modern contemporary home design.

This style also helps with the limited space to maximize space.

The Ramp House in Seri Tanjung Pinang

Simplicity is paired with a combination of form and function for this modern minimalist home in Penang.
