Spruce up your lifestyle with the latest fads in home improvement…
Malaysia has always been internationally renowned as a major tourist destination and shopping hub/haven. The continuous mushrooming of shopping malls helps generate valuable retail interest among shoppers worldwide. Apart from being a shopper’s paradise, Malaysia is also becoming increasingly attractive for global online shopping. As more small businesses and enterprises gradually transition to e-commerce (i.e. online commerce), the ease or convenience of online trading and internet entrepreneurship becomes more apparent or obvious. The nationwide proliferation of e-shopping ultimately prevails. Among the most popular online shopping sites today include 11street, Lazada, GemFive, Zalora, Lelong, Mudah, MUJI, IKEA, Rakuten, Rappler, iPrice, etc. Here are five key popular & preferred online shopping sites for the latest trends or styles in home improvement and interior decoration.

Personalize your living spaces with iPrice’s diverse assortment of decorative items and accessories.

A one-stop shopping destination featuring one of the most comprehensive online collections of home décor and lifestyle accessories catering to all budget types and price points, without sacrificing on style, quality or authenticity. Delima Home is committed to inspire and aspiring to please – beyond ease and accessibility – offering uncompromised product quality and delivering unsurpassed shopping satisfaction. With an expanding portfolio of merchandise sourced nationwide, it also serves as a knowledge hub/portal (i.e. resource & learning centre) for interior design enthusiasts and home living connoisseurs alike. Its constantly evolving brand catatogue seeks to supplement today’s homes with greater value-added products to complement an ever-changing and challenging modern lifestyle.
Pros and cons: Includes free delivery service to all locations within Kuala Lumpur and Selangor. Product catalogue might not feature certain popular brand names.
A specialty store dealing with decorative items, interior fittings & fixtures, and other home accessories. Planning to renovate your home and need additional ornaments to complement your house? Decormaniac is the perfect place to shop online for home décor as the extensive range of items available here are reasonably priced and uniquely attractive. Also featured are exclusive custom or personalized gifts for loved ones to commemorate those special occasions. Premium quality products at affordable prices do not come any better than this!
Pros and cons: They offer more intimate and personalized items/accessories for home living with unbeatable or bargain prices. Product affordability and niche merchandise are definitely a plus point. The only hiccup is probably the lack of high-end (i.e. premium & luxury) stuff which may be available in the near future.
When it comes to home improvement, nobody does it quite as efficient and as elegant as MUJI. MUJI also strives to instill or inculcate awareness among consumers of the benefits of ‘do-it-yourself’ (DIY) as a popular culture. MUJI’s diverse assortment of products primarily consist of home living merchandise, accessories and utensils – such as furniture, stationery, renovation, home décor, household appliances, lifestyle gadgets, fashion and apparel, beauty and health, cosmetics and toiletries, etc. There is definitely something for everyone at MUJI.
Pros and cons: MUJI products are all made to standard sizes so that you can freely mix-and-match to suit your taste, preference & requirement. If you are looking for branded products, you will not find them since MUJI is a brand-less concept store.
IKEA Online Malaysia
The undisputed world leader in DIY (“do-it-yourself”) home decor is truly a sight to behold. The opening of its latest store in Cheras marks a momentous milestone in achievement for this Swedish home improvement giant. We might already be familiar with the iconic DIY home decor brand, but IKEA offers much more than a myriad of premium furniture, home décor, fittings and accessories, etc. IKEA also aspires to instill or inculcate awareness among consumers of the advantages of DIY as a mainstream culture within the home living and renovation industry.
Pros and cons: Easy, fast and convenient – bargain savings where bulk purchases are concerned. For deliveries (any item quantity) within Klang Valley, a RM25 flat-rate courier fee is deemed fairly irresistible. As most DIY wooden-based products come disassembled, some assembly is generally required with their purchases.
