Take those walls DOWN!

A brand new apartment with bare walls, no floors, no power. A clean slate - perfect state to start design :)

Floor Plan:

First thing I did was to take out the wall between kitchen and dining to make it an open kitchen and bring some natural light in.

and this is how it looks now!!

The next question was where the stove would go?! After many discussions with my parents, who wanted the stove to be east facing, we decided to have an island in the same place where the stove was before just that it would be an island with 3 breakfast chairs :D :D Exciting!!!!

Just to give you an idea, something like this

I have to ofcourse think about what color would work in my apartment but yeah! This is the idea :)

If you have any suggestions, I am all ears :D

Dream home back home

Its every Indian's dream to own a house and I am no exception! For a very long time, I have wanted to own a house and make it a real HOME with my family. This dream has finally come true after having to endure the many struggles associated with property ownership, if you know what I mean.. Lets leave all the struggles alone and focus on the happy part that I have finally bought an apartment in chennai. Its 1650 sqft 3BHK apartment in an up and coming area. I have dedicated the next few years of my life to paying off the loan :(. The thought of having my parents live there happily makes me forget that part though! :) After 6 months of loan processing, it was finally sanctioned and I am very very excited to start designing the apartment. In the coming months, I will share my designs and progress on the house! yayyyy!! :D
