New year, new home! Keeping up with such a resolution, however, isn’t necessarily easy. Some homeowners will lose steam as the days go by and the project will be postponed indefinitely.
Home renovation doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. It’s fairly easy to kick-start 2021 with an upgrade to your home, if you follow a couple of simple steps aimed at getting the process started.
Sometimes, a small change can have a really pronounced effect on your home’s appearance and functionality.
Most home owners give up on their renovation resolution because they imagine extensive demolition, lots of noise, lots of dirt and hours of clean-up after everything is done. The best renovation contractor in Singapore will know that a very small change can deliver an exceptional result.
A change as simple as repainting the walls in a different colour will open up a room and set a very different mood from the one you experienced before. A few strategically placed partitions (or the removal of such) will also give you a brand new layout without forcing you to go overboard with the remodelling.
If you’re keen on refresh your living space in 2021, consider a simple, seemingly small modification first. Consult a professional home interior design company about the anticipated outcome. Chances are that you’ll get the result you want in a few quick and easy steps.
Instead of coming up with a grand but impractical project, prioritise versatility to kick-start your renovation in 2021. Here’s what we mean by the concept.
Multi-purpose furniture is an excellent example of a versatile choice for your home’s interior. This is an especially good solution for smaller, space-starved flats. A coffee table that doubles as a storage unit is incredibly versatile and perfect for the living room. Sofas that come with pull-out beds are also amazing for better organisation and saving space.
Versatile living is also about functional zones that create many activity areas within one and the same space, movable partitions you can use to get some privacy upon need, feature walls that make the most of vertical space and smooth transitions from one area to another.
Let’s talk about a more practical aspect of doing your home renovation – budget. Great ideas must be balanced with a carefully and clearly worked-out budget in order to inform all the important spending decisions along the way.
To select the best renovation contractor in Singapore and make sure that the team is the most suited one to the task at hand, you’ll need to do a budget calculation in advance.
The cost of a home renovation in Singapore depends on the size of the flat, the types of work you want to complete and the specifics of the contractors you’d like to hire. According to the home renovation platform Qanvast, the average renovation in Singapore costs 67,000 dollars for a resale HDB and 44,000 dollars for a new HDB flat. That is the amount you’ll need to spend on a complete overhaul of your entire living space.

Get in Touch with Home Renovation Contractors
The next step you’ll have to undertake is actually get in touch with home renovation experts. Use the consultation to ask the important questions and get a feel for the specifics of the upcoming partnership.
Some good questions to ask during a first meeting with a renovation team include the following:
- Do you have experience with the specific type of work and style I need to have done?
- Can I check your portfolio and will you be willing to provide references?
- Are you HDB licensed/certified and can I count on you to handle the documents and renovation requirements?
- How will be communicate during the project and how can I get in touch with you?
- Will I get a visualisation and a plan before the renovation begins? Can I request edits for free/how much is additional work going to cost?
- How much will the project cost and what’s the timeframe for execution?
- How long have you been in business?
- Will you handle the finishing touches and the cleanup?
While these are some of the most important questions, you should definitely go ahead and personalise the first meeting. Think about the type of work you’d like to do and base your list of inquiries on those.
