THE REAL SITUATION
Usually in the middle class, when people try to upgrade their lifestyles, the home of their dreams is the first choice for doing the expenses. They may not know about interior design, and google is not too much of a help either. Then there are the not-so-professional close friends, relatives and neighbours who are always available for some VERY GOOD suggestions that too FREE OF COST!!!! Ultimately it is a perfect recipe for disaster…… End Result…. A home which got enough money spent on it and yet it is far from being designer. It is easier to hire an expert Interior Designer who would first understand your choices and help you discover your preferences. He can help you do the new space in a simpler way and with lesser effort.
HOME IS NOT A HOTEL…. You have to take this into consideration. Your home has to be comfortable and inviting for all family members. Everyone needs space to be oneself. A formal setting like a hotel may not be the need of a home. So while your home has to look good and designer, it need not be a hotel at all times. Plan your home accordingly.
Similarly an office space has to be sober and help in concentration. Office spaces are not restaurants or clubs so avoid making choices which may be too loud for an office.
