Thinking Interiors? Here is What Your Home interiors Can Look Like

In a few years, elite designers like Armani or Prada could have done interiors of your house. It could even get as common as perhaps ordering a Dosa in an Udupi restaurant in Pune! That may become the trend, but before that, an update on the scene in interior designing in Pune and India wouldn’t hurt, right?

Individuality and Personality

Think 'Glocal'
A smart amalgamation of native designing elements – artifacts, antiques, rugs, wall hangings etc in tandem with international style interiors is the flavour currently. Any modern office or a residential space in upscale location India is not too different from the one in New York or Singapore.

It’s Green! 
Be it interior designing in Pune or in any other city, there is an increased awareness about preserving the environment. Buyers are trying to incorporate green and sustainable options while choosing materials and other elements making up the interiors.

Hot Favourites

Smart Storage 
Thinking of maximum storage in compact space is the buzz word. Multipurpose furniture and installations are the best bet out of storage solutions.

Big Fat Indian Family

Finally, fusing technology in the interior design in tune with the times, is the trend. This is especially so in security and audio visual systems.

Four Points to Ponder when Buying Home Considering Children

Married or not, at some point of time, you would most probably have to ponder over buying a home considering children. We are sure that your first reaction to this would be – buying a house keeping in mind children? Who does that? Even though this seems slightly farfetched, this is one of the important things to consider while buying a house. Here is a low down on things you can check when buying a home with children in mind.

Dial L for Location Location is anyway important, but when it comes to children, it is even more crucial. Good schools, day care centres (if need be) have to be close and easily accessible from your home. Also add hospitals and emergency rooms to this list!

Safety Matters You don’t want a case of ‘Home Alone’ to happen with your children, right? So consider overall safety of the neighbourhood to safety features within the actual residential complex and residence. For instance, lighting in common areas like lobbies and staircases and in lifts need to have 24X7 backup. Are the wall sockets for all the computers, televisions and electronic items out of the reach of your children or at least properly protected, if children are very young? Are the cupboards in the kitchen children proof?

Space With younger children space may not be a huge problem when it comes to considering buying home with children. But it could be the deal breaker when there are pre teens or teenage children at home. As they are growing up, they would need more space.

Local Transport If the kids are grown up enough, there is a good possibility they would use the public transport at some point of time. So if the location has decent public transport facilities available, that could be a plus.

So do you think you could buy a house with children among those umpteen apartments in Pune? If you are house hunting, give Kumar Pinakin with 2 BHK and 3 BHK in Baner a shot! All the best!
