Here are few ideas to plan your interiors and pointers to help you while dealing with an Interior Designer/ Contractor.
Living Room – Depending on size of family, decide for the seating arrangement firstly. These days for smaller living rooms, you can save the T.V unit space by wall mounting it. If at all you still want a T.V unit, then there are various sizes available in market or you can get it custom made. It’s always good to share colour preferences for your home walls, furniture and other accessories. You shall also discuss the light, its fittings and colour of your choice. By colour I mean yellow coloured lights or white coloured lights. This will help a designer create a home of your liking.
False ceiling –A false ceiling is a secondary ceiling, hung below the main (structural) ceiling. You can style the false ceiling with different patterns and use lights in such a way that they are not visible (hidden). But all this again depends on your budget majorly and your choice. If you low on budget, then I suggest you to go for plain, simple false ceiling with usual placement of lights.
Balcony – In balcony, an Indian seating created which will also solve your storage issues if any. To add style to your balcony, you can use a swing that fits well in given space.
Bedroom – I suggest you to note down all the requirements for your bedroom with the designer. Requirements like bed, side tables, dressing tables, headboard, wardrobe, study table and their sizes shall be discussed. Depending on size of the room and your choice, plan for your wardrobe, whether husband-wife shall have different wardrobes or not, if storage cabinet for kids req. or not. Usually a single combined wardrobe size is 4’x7’ (wXh). I am sure dressing table is something every woman wants. To save your dressing table space, you can get a mirror installed on one the wardrobe door and keep other stuff in your wardrobe drawers. This will 1. Save your room space and 2. Solve you purpose.
Study Table – To suit your style and occupy less space, foldable tables are best for small homes. You can use it whenever in need and fold it back when not. This way you not only save on space but also have your style of table.
Kitchen –Open plan kitchen is very contemporary style of kitchen that not only enhances your living room but also gives a very modern and unique feel to your apartment. You can have storage cabinets build above the platform, where you store daily req. stuff.
You can use wall decals in every possible location/ rooms of a house or offices. More commonly, wall decals get used for living rooms, bedrooms, kitchen, bathrooms, and children room. Wall decals are also used for plain cupboards and false ceiling. The advantage of decals again is that it can be used on multiple surfaces. So they can be used on walls, tiles, glass, metals, laminates, veneer, etc.
If talk specifically about Living Room, multiple themes are preferred, Nature is one of them, you also have motif’s. Abstract theme, Landscape based designs and also sports related designs are preferred by many. And as I said earlier, decals can be customised as per you theme, size and colour so it’s never ending when it comes to design.
Many Homes have problem of Water leakage/seepage during monsoons. Their concern is can they still have wall decal. Unfortunately, for walls with moisture or leakage problem, wall decals are a total NO NO. Because of moisture, the decals will not remain stuck to the wall for a longer time. It will peel out easily as the glue is weakened. And because of leakage problem, along with paint n chunna, decals will also come out. If you still wanna have decals for your walls, you need to get leakage and moisture problem rectified.
When you are renovating home with contractor or say you are just getting home painted by hiring painter, one big question you get is about colour scheme. If you have interior designer he will try to understand what kind if look & feel you like.
Having said that as part of good business practice no painter or contractor or interior designer decided what colour to use.
The onus is on home owner. Why if after whole painting was done you came back & told me that you didn’t like the colour shadeRead More...
The size of gypsum board is standard in all companies. Usual size is 6 ft* 4 ft. In olden times, it was manually made. The cement plastic sacs are opened and the threads of the sac are mixed in POP to make it strong. The size is fixed 2ft *2ft, as it use to break if the size is increased. Gypsum product has evolved very well in last few years. Many branded companies make gypsum sheets, that doesn’t break as they have proper proportion of all the material and proper hydraulic pressure is given to the sheet.
The cost of company made sheet is little on higher side compared to manually made. However companies also do not increase the size (6ft* 4ft) as it easy for handling, does not break and convenient to fit in ceiling.
In false ceiling you have to use lights in such a way that they are not visible (hidden). In false ceiling you do not get direct light, you always get indirect light . This is creates good effect on eyes.
In living room you hardly need 1 or 2 tubelights but in false ceiling the requirement (quantity) of light increases. Whether to have 4 LED lights in 4 corner or 6 or more depends on size of your living room. Advantage is you with LEd you get to lit up area of your room which needs to be lit. You dont require to lit whole room all the time. hence it is possible to create different mood & soothing effects.
LED lights have comparatively longer life. The electrician or Designer will guide you on how many lights you require for living room. Then an electrical point is taken and fitted with the
If you make false ceiling in bedroom you use less light compared to living room. You need more light on study table & computer.
