We Can't Believe These Renovations Cost RM100,000 (or Less)

BOOKMARK

Creative interior design and renovations do not have to cost a bomb!

In fact, with a budget of RM100,000 (or less) and the help of a talented interior designer, you can upgrade your home to the stylish, practical living space you’ve always dreamed of!

Here are seven affordable renovation projects that you’ll have to see to believe:


1. Ara Damansara | UP Creations

Renovation Cost: RM70,000

With a modest budget of RM70,000, this petite condo still gets high-class designer treatment! Thanks to clever decor tricks like the use of lighter walls, floors and furniture, in addition to reflective cabinet doors and mirrors, the interiors are visually expanded. We also love the touch of Asian marble in the dining area! It adds instant class and gives off a delicate, luxurious vibe.

Money-saving tip: Can’t afford high-gloss finishing paint for furniture? Try resin-based finishing (e.g. liquid glass epoxy) which costs less, but looks just as good!


2. Glomac Damansara | Dot Works

Renovation Cost: RM80,000

This mid-sized condo is styled to perfection with a blend of décor concepts. For one, it showcases a charming, rugged quality with elements of industrial décor like a red brick feature wall, cement separator table, piped lighting fixtures as well as several reclaimed wood pieces. The bedroom area expresses contemporary class with cosy, warm lighting, dreamy hues and wooden floors.

Money-saving tip: Industrial décor styled furniture is raw and often unfinished. To DIY this look, source for second-hand wood furniture and sand-off the top surface for a natural, rough appearance.


3. Contemporary Condo | Diary Interior Design Studio

Renovation Cost: RM100,000

Modern décor can sometimes slide into the expensive realm! This is because typical modern styles are consistent with expertly crafted furniture, high-end materials (especially marble and other stone flooring) and quality finishing. That’s why the décor in this condo is a feat and at just RM100, 000, a steal! We see classic clean lines, sleek lighting fixtures, and solid furniture pieces in neutral-natural hues.

Money-saving tip: Rather than splurge on high-end finishing for your walls, matte paint in colours other than white or its fellow neutrals can help impart a designer look. Consider off-beat colours like olive, teal, lavender, mustard and navy.


4. Taman Connaught | Cabineto Sdn Bhd

Renovation Cost: RM100,000

To decorate a sprawling landed home on a budget of RM100, 000 is a credit to the dedicated interior design team at work here. Because even though they didn’t have a fortune to work with, the result is sheer decorative elegance! Check out the use of high-end flooring like glossy marble and hardwood, sturdy furniture, master carpentry and even fancy wallpaper!

Money-saving tip: You can cut costs on wallpaper supplies and installation by buying the materials online and simply DIY!


5. JC House | Yong Studio

Renovation Cost: RM100,000

This lovely landed affordably received five-star décor treatment for the entire home! The living room, dining and bedrooms were decorated in a transitional style that incorporates both modern and contemporary elements. With a budget of RM100, 000, everything from carpentry, to furniture and appliances were included – even a feature wall was worked in!

Money-saving tip: Don’t have the budget to construct a feature wall? Try faux paint! These paints can create stylish finishing with texture to resemble just about any type of material – from brick to wood, even fabric!


6. Tropika Putra | Id Industries

Renovation Cost: RM100,000

If you love industrial décor, you are going to absolutely fall for this home and it’s rugged, earthy charm! Designed with a budget of RM100, 000, this project creatively achieved its look with sand-washed elements (on walls, furniture and flooring), reclaimed wood furniture, string drop lighting, and natural flooring.

Money-saving tip: Display an inexpensive (but meaningful) coloured or patterned art piece to your living room! A piece of art can add character and does much to personalise the space, no matter the décor style.


7. Mar Vista | Urban Home

Renovation Cost: RM100,000

This urban-chic, minimalist dream home is understated but impeccably well-designed, making the most of space and even visually creating more room! We love the classic white elements throughout the house, from shutter-styled cupboard doors, to the glossy and somewhat shimmery ivory living room. Even the snowy kitchen cabinetry complemented by concrete-washed walls and flooring is lovable too!

Money-saving tip: Making white décor sparkle and shine doesn’t have to cost a cent! Just allow the space to be filled with natural light (where possible). Do limit window treatments and heavy drapes. Instead, opt for sheer curtains and leave windows unobstructed.
