Planning to renovate your 1 Bedroom Hall Kitchen – First thing you should do is get the clear layout of your flat from Interior Designer or Contractor. This includes:
(1)Living room: How is the sitting arrangement, position of T.V, position of door opening where shoe rack can be adjusted.
(2)Bedroom: Position of bed, wardrobe & dressing table.
(3)Kitchen: Many people prefer the direction of platform according to vastu. A place for Mandir (small size), refrigerator, washing machine, etc.
Then the layout is finalized. Any changes which are to be done should be finalised before the work starts. Once the work starts & then you want to make changes it becomes very difficult to do.

demolished & position of new wall is moved out (balcony is taken inside). Any changes in toilet is done like changing Indian toilet into western.
Living room:- The windows which are given by builder can be changed & new french window can be put. An extension is given with the help of marble where you can store things in it & it also becomes sitting place for 3-4 people.
