Mr. Daniel had to cancel his plan of buying a new house due to this Pandemic crisis. His original plan was to get a new house to start a new chapter with his newly wed wife. However, he decided to use his reserved funds to upgrade his current property. He engaged an Interior Designer (ID) recommended by his uncle. The ID presented him with amazing designs and he was really impressed by it. The initial budget was RM250k for the renovation according to the ID. However, when the work on the site started, the builder told him that strengthening works on the existing structural elements weren'tincluded in their contract. This cost him an additional RM100k. He faced the scenario of either pumping in more money into this renovation or changing the design. He was lost!
What could you do if you were Mr. Daniel?
A good Interior Designer will try their best to cater to all their client’s requests, and that includes minimising demolition of the building's existing structural elements. Removing a small column might cost you a few hundred thousand Ringgit just to get the right feel for your house’s Interior Design (unless you are willing to spend).
