What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Prices vary from south Mumbai to western and eastern suburbsPrices are higher on the southern side of the city due to its proximity to the sea and also the heritage value of the Fort area. Especially areas such as Marine Drive and Peddar Road have soaring rates, due to high land value.The average prices are based on various factors such as how old the building is, its amenities, and so on. The prices may have an approximate range between Rs 1 lakh and 1.5 lakh per square foot in this area. Did you know: In 2013, as reported by the Times of India, the price for a sea-facing Worli apartment went up to as much as Rs 1.23 lakh per square foot. This was one of the highest reported at the time. The western suburbs such as Bandra and Andheri can also have high prices, as much as Rs 50,000 to 60,000 per square foot due to its cultural and social value and, of course, its proximity to the sea. Did you know: Another story, reported in 2018 by First Post, mentions a sea-facing duplex that sold for 57 crores – roughly Rs 1.35 lakh per square foot.The eastern suburbs have higher prices in Dadar and Matunga, where the prices may usually range from Rs 40,000 to Rs 50,000 per square foot. As one goes further north, one may find a reduction in prices.Prices within the suburbs also vary based on various factors, such as the kind of building structure, whether it is old or new, the kind of amenities, the floor-to-floor height of the apartment and its proximity to the local transport (prices are always higher for apartments closest to the train and metro stations).
6. Design a quiet zoneAnyone who’s ever lived in a large family can attest to an intense craving for silence and privacy outside of their rooms occasionally. Create a quiet nook, well isolated from the noise and clatter of the television and kitchen. This area can be used as a reading corner or as lounge space to relax in. Create a pleasant ambience using muted colours, artwork, accent lighting and a touch of greenery.
Let in the natural light Zen advocates openness in all aspects of life and a big part of that involves being one with nature, to stay close to it. This living area is the perfect example of how one could bring in the outside by letting in the light. The cynosure is the glass-panelled wall that bathes the room in natural light and allows vast green views of the outdoors. Create a similar vibe by exploring every avenue of natural light in your house.
