Should I choose a Hong Kong Interior Design Company or a Renovation Company?
The difference between interior design companies and renovation companies lies in their fees and service areas. Usually, interior design companies would provide one-stop service including interior design, project management and supervision services. After arranging on-site measurement, interior designers would start to prepare perspective drawings, site plans, floor plans, reflected ceiling plans, design elements, etc. Interior Design Company will directly communicate with the technicians and contractors. While if you directly hire a Renovation Company, you will need to supervise the work and provide interior design on your own.
Moneywise, Interior Design Company will charge a higher renovation cost than hiring a Renovation Company. The design cost is about 30% of the whole project. Some interior design and renovation companies offer whole house renovation packages that include custom furniture, interior design and renovation services to meet one-stop design and renovation needs. You can choose from different package options depending on your budget and needs.
How long does it generally take to complete a renovation project?
The whole house renovation time generally takes at least 90 working days. The more complicated the whole house renovation process is, the longer renovation time is required. The actual time depends on the complexity of the project, the material delivery period, the number of workers, etc. If you have a target completion date, it should be proposed to our consultant and the renovation company before confirming the project.
If the project is expected to be too urgent, there is a chance that the renovation budget will be adjusted by adding more technicians and workers to catch up with the work; or the scale of the project will need to be reduced to speed up progress. For your first time renovation, it is suggested to understand the project schedule set by the renovation company, as well as the renovation steps and process, in order to monitor the progress and quality of construction.

How to save space and maximize the use of space in home renovation in Hong Kong?
How to plan and decorate a small home under 400 square feet? In Hong Kong, home spaces are generally small in size, especially for small homes such as public housing, HOS and nano-flats. Here are some renovation tips on how to save space in renovation.
1) Proper storage
The utility of storage cabinets is important to increase more storage and avoid clutter. Make good use of storage techniques and light furniture, such as installing and customizing wall-mounted furniture, wall cabinets, floor storage and shape-shifting furniture, to declutter your space. It lets you tuck away the mess and makes maintenance a lot easier. Floor storage is also very common in Hong Kong, which adds storage space on the floor, stairs, and floor beds, which is perfect for those who want to use up their space!
2) Removing walls and changing partitions
Many small units are saving spaces from their kitchen by opening up the partition and making it an open kitchen design. For Open Kitchen Design, you may consider applying a center kitchen island and custom-made kitchen cabinets, which combine cooking and dining space, which saves space for a dining table and increases the living and dining room space.
