How to Design Your Own Home

You’ve saved your earnings, you’ve researched the house as per your needs and after dealing with all the paperwork the house is finally your house. Your dream house which is yours and yours alone. Well if you haven’t bought a house which comes fully furnished or already made or if the house is made but not as per your needs well then you have to begin from scratch. The idea of a professional like an interior designer sounds very exciting but is a heavy hole in your wallet.

Some also do not want their house to be as per someone else’s imagination. Indian’s in the past had a very restrictive attitude towards building or designing their own homes that’s because the culture and tradition demanded many designs to be inbuilt such as a bathroom must be outside the home and the home must have a quadrangle in between. The kitchen must be made with open ventilation. But as real estate scenarios changed people began modernizing and compact conceptualizing their homes. With the prices of property skyrocketing people started making do with what they have.

But on the other side, there are plenty who have big homes and wish to design their home in their way.
