January to March: Focus On The Kitchen
Interior Designer: Senterior Design
For the first quarter of the year, give your kitchen the much-needed update by completely re-organizing the pantry. Look through every shelf to discard expired food, broken cutleries, and faulty appliances from last year. Once the shelves are cleared, restock them with healthy food supplies and new tools to serve you better for the New Year.

If that hasn't freed up space in your kitchen, a storage upgrade is in order. Consider hiring a trusted professional to help you upsize your existing kitchen cabinetry. The right cabinetry configuration with ample compartments will fully maximise kitchen space and minimise clutter.
April to June: Refresh The Bedrooms
Interior Designer: Colony Design
The second quarter of the year is an amazing time to refresh the bedrooms – one on average for every month. You can choose to spruce up the dull walls with a bolder shade of paint, or have them completely revamped using adhesive wallpapers in your favourite patterns.

To ensure a trimmed and flawless finish, repair any cracks and holes first and prime the walls with a stain-blocking primer to conceal old stains. Painting the rooms one at a time will give you enough space to move the furniture around until the paint dries up entirely. If time allows, consider adding crown molding to the rims of the walls for an elegant and high-end look.

July to September: Revamp Your Bathroom
Interior Designer: Ace Space Design
We're halfway into the year - this calls for a bathroom makeover! Every bathroom deserves a stylish focal point, and chic wall embellishments such as colourful mosaic tiles or rectangle subway tiles do just the trick.
Interior Designer: Grazioso Design
When choosing the right colours for the tiles, keep in mind to pick one that matches the permanent components of the bathroom such as the flooring and cabinets, rather than something that is more frequently changed like curtains. Modern tiles are fun to mix-and-match, and are cheap and easy to replace once damaged.
October to December: Declutter Your Closet
Architect: 0932 Design Consultants
The last quarter of the year in Malaysia is packed with festive seasons, making it less suitable and inconvenient for extensive remodelling projects. Nevertheless, you can make the most out of these three months by clearing out your closets.
Smart decluttering tips include dividing the items into three bags: keep, throw, and donate. If you have a garage or a garden, sort through the items and group them in their respective zones such as gardening tools and automotive toolboxes.
