Reasonable interior designer?


Please point me to a reasonable interior designer who specialises in wooden flooring, above average wardrobes and room makeover stuff. Please also mention your good experience if any.

Point me to brochures if any. My budget is like 5L+ for 3BHK and I live in Hyderabad.

Any reviews on HomeTown? Style Spa?

Re: Reasonable interior designer?

Hi Blasto,
An Interior Designer is a professional person who charges his fees to design any given premises. The fees is a fixed percentage on the total cost you have spent on renovating the premises. In some cases a amount can also be fixed.
I dont know about other places, but in Mumbai a exprienced designer wont charge less than 10% fees on total cost.

The designer after several alternates and discussion with the client will narrow down on certain layouts and design. It is then you can call few contractor and take competitive rates from them.

With no offence to you. In Mumbai to completely renovate a 3 BHK will cost around 25 Lac.

If you can send me your layout on AutoCAD then I can give you the right inputs free of cost.

Interior designers are a big rip-off.. be careful in whom you choose.. most will charge astronomical prices and sometimes will do what they think is classy..

Re: Reasonable interior designer?

I am not sure why you've got this idea, but interior designing may not be a costly affair. One of my friends had her house renovated (2BHK) almost completely (flooring + furniture + bathrooms) at around 8L. The look is a bit rich and hence 8L, we were initially planning for a 6.5L budget and it'd be possible except for a few choices that we made during the renovation.

Also, wooden flooring when I had last inquired about 3-4 yrs back was not costly at all and even maintenance free. I am assuming that the cost would have gone down before of more adoption happening now. Please find out the cost of the flooring by visiting some showrooms, they'd have samples and even actual layouts where you can walk over the flooring (or even drop heavy stuff )

Sorry but 3BHK for 25L is just a bit too much unless you want to make it look lavish like a diamond merchant!

Re: Reasonable interior designer?

Wow.. You guys really scare me.

Wooden Flooring - I was talking about the laminate flooring only for bed rooms. The estimate in Hometown brochure came to ~40k for that for the base model. It could be 60-70k top is what I guessed.

Also these guys show "Before" and "After" photographs in their catelog for a single room for all inclusive price of 1-1.5L and the rooms look look bigger and in a single word "awesome" and you cannot believe the transformation happened in <1.5L. Refer catelog below. (Warning 5MB file)

Should I assume these are just marketing talk then?

Re: Reasonable interior designer?

Hi,

For the wooden flooring, you really dont need an interior designer you need to contact the wooden flooring companies and they will get it done in a day or two. Depending on your budget you can choose the quality of wooden flooring. They can be from 70 bucks a sq feet to 200 bucks.

Regards,
Sudhir
