Adding a couple of easy-to-maintain indoor plants inside will lighten up your home. It is sure to add a fresh look to your room and will bring in positive vibes. There are a lot of plants such as money plants, aloe Vera plants, fern plants, bamboo shoots, or any other plant that you like. Pick any one of them from the nearby nursery. Even if you are living in an apartment, it is very easy to maintain these plants as they don’t require a lot of sunlight. Just place them near a window so they get some fresh air every day.

  • Unclutter

You cannot believe the difference a good cleaning session makes in transforming the look of your home. Spend a Sunday doing a proper cleaning and uncluttering of your house. Recycle or donate the things that are no longer of use, and spend some time dusting and washing cushion covers, bed covers, and curtains, etc. Use a nice room freshener and put fresh flowers in that beautiful vase lying in your drawing room and you will feel such a pleasant difference in your home.

These are a few simple ways you can give a makeover to your home whenever you wish to without any major spending. And if you have any other ideas to redesign your home in a budget, do let us know in the comments!

What makes A House Luxurious?

“The sky is not the limit, the limit is your vision”

Owning a luxurious house is like dream come true for most of the people, enjoying all the comforts of the world in your own home. These days every other real estate developer uses the word ‘Luxury’ to define their properties in Lucknow. We have defined the basic parameters that will help you categorise a project as Luxurious.

  • Location

Location is one of the key factors. The project should ideally be located at a prominent area in the city like Gomti Nagar, Shaheed Path, Sushant Golf City. It should have easy connectivity with the rest of the areas in the city for day to day commute as well as good social infrastructure available in the city.

  • Space

A Luxurious Home should have spacious bedrooms, bathrooms, living room and drawing room. It should have expansive rooms with luxury specifications like false ceiling, modular kitchen, air conditioner etc. Ideally 3 BHK or 4 BHK flats in Lucknow can come under the category of Luxury Homes.

  • Floor-to-ceiling Height

The floor to ceiling height should be at least 12 feet. The more the height the more the feeling of openness and grandeur. The floor should ideally have marble or wooden flooring.

  • Home techs

The House should be equipped with centralized air-conditioning. Smart home technologies are in high demand these days, technologies that monitor and manage systems inside and outside the house. Whether it is locking the doors or controlling the thermostat, variable-speed air conditioning, appliances, music, and lights, one can look after their home from anywhere in the world using smartphones.

  • Security

The need for security is increasing day by day in India. The demand for installation of security within the house is also rising. Besides human security in the form of round-the-clock security personnel, electronic surveillance units should be installed in each and every corner of the property. 

  • Amenities

If you are staying in an apartment it is important to consider the amenities that your project is offering. Some prestigious builders from Lucknow like Paarth Infra, Omaxe, Ansal are offering high-end amenities like luxurious state of the art clubhouse, fully equipped gymnasium, lush green spaces, amphitheatre, multiplex, swimming pool, to name a few. Do make sure to check out the amenities the project is offering before making your decision.

  • Specifications

The material used in construction should bee premium,for example flooring should be Italian marble or wooden, the kitchen should have high quality premium fittings. Also if you are going in for a residential apartment, make sure to check the quality of material being used in the other parts of the project as well like garden, parking, lawns, pathways,etc.

The above-mentioned points are some of the features for a luxury house. Thus next time when you go searching for a luxury property, you should keep the above points in mind lest you might end up getting duped and lose your hard earned money.

Nowadays, demand for luxury houses is rising and developers are incorporating interesting technological innovations into their projects in order to attract a niche set of clients. Hence, the market for such luxury houses will only grow and get bigger in future.

  • Coffee table

As couch seats are usually about 20 inches high for easy sitting and standing, the ideal coffee table is 15 to 20 inches tall. Situate it 18 inches from the sofa; this is the average distance from a person’s hip to the kneecap. In a casual family room, 18 inches gives space for lounging and comfortable walking around the furniture. Choose a coffee table that’s two thirds as wide as the sofa.
