Teen's Room

Every parent is at an urge to provide the best to their children, both at the phases of childhood and teenage. Well, that’s absolutely fine. But, a small request to all the parents. You will have to keep in mind to provide what your children actually need. A post came up in the past dealing with all the requirements and facilities to be provided in your kid’s room. But let’s throw some light on how the room should be for your grown up kid to be a teen. Here you go. Get your teen’s room ready in the way that steals their heart. This could probably be the best present to your teen. The bed could be a simple one with a full foam mattress. The table should be a bigger one that can accommodate their personal computer or laptop along with a pen stand and other articles like books and stuff. A study lamp is a must. The room should painted with light and pleasant colours with one of the walls having an attractive design at the centre of which some space should be available for placi

The Teddies!

Majority of folks devoid of age concern are great fans of these teddies and barbies. Well, you could be one. I join the club too! It is exciting to know the existence of fan clubs for these. Why all this discussion? At this point, you need to question yourself. Are these just for play purpose? If your answer is no, then you are on the right channel. These toys could add up a great quotient to the score of the interiors of your house. In fact, this is what done in our house. I had a collection of barbies and teddies in my childhood. Like most, I don’t play with them much at present. I never expected these toys to be the interiors of my room! The corners were arranged with a glass of semi circular shape over which my teddies sit. Another akin glass piece with all my barbies cooking is arranged in opposite corner. Well, my room looks like the class room of a kinder garden! Of course, I like it. The environment is very creative in the room. I think this is the reason why kinder gar

Greenery in Interiors

Have you come across any room or a house with some plants or other greenery inside? Well, I have been to a hotel today and its interiors included this component. The room had a small partition at its center and the top of it was made convenient for the arrangement of plants. The plants were kind of miniature or bonsai ones. By adding this to the interiors, beauty was a plus, but something else matters! The carbon-di-oxide released by those plants. Plants release oxygen only when they are exposed to sun light. All the other times, they are also going to be normal living things that take in oxygen and leave out carbon-di-oxide. This is the reason why we are not suggested to be near trees at night. So, we are just adding up some more temperature and pollution to our room for some beauty. I have seen some houses with rooms having a small lawn at the center. But, it was OK as most of them were in the presence of sun light by the arrangement of transparency to the ceiling. If you ar

Twinkling stars

Each of us has their own plan for their dream home and the bed room. But most of them would be a part of routine ideas. But I have got this crazy idea when I was sitting on the terrace of my house today evening.  Well, as a contribution to the World Environment Day, we decided to switch off the power supply for some time and all of us were on the terrace. It was dark already, and we stayed there enjoying the dark sky with the little stars twinkling here and there in the sky like some fish in a lake! It was a great relaxation and we returned after an hour or so. It was really a great experience and the initiative was also good. What if we have this beautiful view that never allows you to take your eye off it every day by the time you sleep? You got me right! A house on the top floor and the bed room with a transparent ceiling is all what you need. Entire ceiling need not be transparent but a part of it also renders the experience of the scenic sight. Just as you lie on bed, befor

Kitchen Sketch

It’s no more the time for the stale old types of techniques in the kitchen. May be a new house or a one in which already you are living, modern kitchen stands as a prime requirement right! May be a small family or a joint one or a single occupancy in a house, you need to cook food and it requires a kitchen. Well, great mechanical advantage is derived with the implementation of modern kitchen techniques. Getting deeper into physics! It also reduces the necessity of manual labor. Modern kitchen includes amenities like modular kitchen which includes a drawer for the food wrap, crockery and others separately. This provides easy access to corners. A chimney at the top of the stove that absorbs up the heat produced during cooking. A good ventilation facility with at least one window in the kitchen is a necessity. An arrangement for movement between kitchen and dining would be good. A place preferably at the corner fixed for mixer, grinder, juicer etc. Tiling for the side walls for a mi

Gated Communities

Have you ever tried categorizing the houses? If we are to partly split the houses into two types, it could be gated communities which include houses of may be similar type grouped together and the other is ordinary ones which include independent houses, apartments and all other kinds. Well, it could be a personal opinion in making a choice in the above for you. But, if we are to compare all the aspects in facilities and comforts, we can come to a conclusion that gated communities serve good. Typically, land owners would prefer building an independent house in their land. Looking at the advantages of gated communities is surely going to change your mind. Not just independent houses, but apartments are also a part of some of the gated communities. City of Gold plan Good facilities of security are provided that may be expensive or unavailable in other houses. Traffic free surrounding inside the community allows a good play for children as well as a better walking zone for everyo

Pent house

Human brain is bored of routine and always fascinated to go out of the box. Might be your daily jobs, the people you meet, the places you visit on a daily basis bores your brain. Getting rid of it is practically impossible. All you can do is break your routine for some time once in a while. The same works with the home you live in too! Are you not bored of the routine type of houses you live in? Of course, making small changes in the appeal gives a new look but, you have a more effective way. Why not try a pent house? Well, it is the house on the top most floor of a building which is totally with a different plan from others not just in area but the luxuries too. Of course both the pros and cons are to be considered. Taking a look at the positive aspect, it is a step up for your status! Being the top floor, you can get a scenic view of the city and have good ventilation for the entire house. Isolation from others in the apartment can help you manage a personalized lifestyle.

Marble as your flooring?

Whether you own a house or going to own one, you have an interesting decision to make about your house, the flooring. I am sure every house needs one! The most popular flooring used now a days in the apartments as well as villas is the white marble flooring. Well, the look of it is to be admired. It presents an elegant look to the house not just because of its color but also because of its texture. White marble also fits in the budget and works out with your pocket. Looking only on the bright side of anything is not good right! On the dark one, let’s also talk about the cons of it. If some colorless liquids like water or so fall on it, it is never visible and may lead to slipping at the spots. Any scratches while dragging heavy objects gets dust accumulated in them and don’t give a neat look and make it untidy. If the corners are not taken care, the white marble appears brown. If you are confident enough that you can take care of all this, you can have the white marble. If not, the

THE BHK THING

Well, deciding to own a house and invest a ransom sum on it is not a small thing. Once you have already done that, you may have a whole lot of choices to make for the new house and the facilities you want from it. One of the major things is the number of bed rooms you want in your house. This would be the basic criterion when you start searching for a house as they are compartmentalized based on area and the number of bed rooms. Most popular are the 2BHK-4BHK. It’s like they cut down your choice to a very little number and you have to choose among the three or four alternatives available. I know it’s still difficult to do it. Just sit and think of the people going to stay in that house. If you are a sweet small family of 3-4 members, a 3BHK would do well with you. If you are a family with more than 4, you need to upgrade to a 4 or 5 BHK. If you feel you will always have guests at every point of time in the year, you need to have a bit of thought for them also!   If you make your

Realism

Imagination has no bounds. Let your feet touch the ground when your mind’s eye sees the sky. It is legitimate to fix your targets and aim high. But, it is not preferable to expect profligately from what you do. Yes! You do it, you do it to your full potential, have affirmative anticipation of the result of your hard work. You need to live in reality and budget yourself for it. Well, let’s get to a house you want to own in future. Every soul wants to live in a big and expensive house with marked interiors. And you plan your job and salary according to that. Life is not a bed of roses right! If anything goes wrong or out of way, it doesn’t stand on your path. You need to align yourself to the situations and behave accordingly. You may have to compromise on the type of dwelling you have to live in, but, it’s OK! It’s only for some time. All you need to keep in mind is sketch your budget wisely depending on the present situations not that of past and future. You could always find the h

My dream home

Have you ever imagined about the type of habitat you wanted to live in? Yes, right! I did too. Well, I was an aficionado of houses. It is a heart throbbing experience to watch all those beautiful dwellings standing out there. On my trip to Kerala, I came across so many which come under this category. When all my friends were on their edge to enjoy with friends, I was one sitting at the window of the bus watching all the picturesque views. In fact, my brother promised to gift me a house in Kerala, if I had a simple register marriage! All I need is a cute home, undoubtedly a life-size one with a spacious lawn running in front of it. A modernized  kitchen with center  part of the house open to the sky, seeming like the traditional country side houses right! A badminton court pointed at a corner of the lawns and satisfactory number of trees that fetches good air all the time. Preferably a sports car parked in front of it, the parking should be well sketched. With a deep eye on the in
