  • Looking For Interior Designers? Meet Atap.co



    I am loving this site! Why didn't they launch sooner? When my x-fiance bought a house, I was put to task to find an interior designer and come up with a renovation plan on my own. It was difficult! I didn't know anyone who was an interior designer (ID) or felt comfortable trusting word-of-mouth recommendations. It's not helpful that most IDs don't have websites! So, the best option I could think of was Lowyat forum, as the blogs I read were not comprehensive enough and lacking in the information that I required to help me choose a reputable ID. I googled till the cows come home. Looking at Atap.co made me wish I didn't have to go through all that.

    Finally, there was one go-to place to search for home and space ideas, see other projects, and view portfolios from over 1,000 local interior designers

    becoming more awesome since April 2016

    I wasn't convinced about Atap.co until I saw all the photographs of the homes and commercial spaces listed with interior designers and architects responsible for all the beautiful creations. I could view their portfolios, request for free quotes from IDs, then compare prices and meet them for consultations. This allows me to make the best choice according to my renovation needs!

    Nu Infinity, I love you! Please design my home!

    When browsing interior design photos via the ‘Browse Ideas’ or ‘Browse Projects’ tabs, my favorite browsing categories are Scandinavian, Minimalist, Contemporary and Modern. My jaw just drops at every project album. I'm also able to see the budget used for each project e.g from RM30K to RM1.2mil. I recall RM200k was the budget for the home but I didn't know what exactly I could do or how much I could change. Now I know roughly with a guide from here.

    While browsing the projects, I spotted one of the ID firm who was my favorite - Nu Infinity. I almost contacted them to design my former home in TTDI. Now I can actually see their projects, which I imagine is kinda like the feeling Kpop fans get when they look at their idol's album book.

    How Atap.co Works

    Getting Started: Finding a Home Professional

    This website is user-friendly btw! All you need to do is browse and find your dream home design, request a free quote from an ID that you like or send a general request to the site. What happens next is, they will receive your quote requests. What happens next is, the ID of your choice or a few suitable IDs will send you price quotes that you can consider and compare.

    P.S: If you're an ID, you can also register to be on Atap.co!

    You can browse through many different options as well, which I would like to point out is a life-saver! Depending on your budget, property type, which area space, style, type of work needed, color or project type, (completed/concept) you're able to narrow down the options and feel inspired straight away. If you're a stalker like me, you can browse by locations as well. For instance, I checked out Damansara Perdana to see which neighbors projects are here hahaha! Well, it's good for me to know if a particular place is similar to mine, so that I can also copy the design (double hahaha).

    Home and Design Inspiration

    There's more to this eye candy site for home decor lovers like myself. You can also find articles on home improvement and makeovers to inspire you! This is especially helpful for beginners like me who start off small and work towards saving up for a beautiful home like this Richard & Beatrice Residence (Opulence Design), a beautiful Scandinavian style and looks so Muji-ish. I could definitely live here (dreaming).

    Which is your favorite home style?
