Residence in Powai
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Not maintaining a single design languageSticking to one unified design language throughout the home, rather than having distinctly themed rooms, makes for a harmonious design scheme. It gives a sophisticated and well-composed appeal to spaces individually, apart from generating a sense of cohesion and consonance. Repeating a particular design element, such as colour, material, texture, shape or form is the easiest way to go about it.Not resolving services beforehandAlthough services are considered one of the most crucial facets while designing, integrating them in a strategic and seamless manner is overlooked often enough. The plumbing, electricals, HVAC, fire safety and security of the complete house need to be planned during the initial design phase to facilitate and achieve efficient, user-friendly spaces that stand the test of time.Bottom line: Both designers advise us to keep the big picture in mind. Keep all the do’s and don’ts in mind when designing and you will have a beautiful and functional home.Read more:Houzz Forum: Which Big Mistakes to Avoid When Building a Home?Houzz Forum: What is Sustainability in the Indian Context?Tell us:Did you make design mistakes at home?
