Quality Or Cost – Factors For Interior Designing
With a typical flat/villas in Bangalore costing lakhs of crores of rupees, you’re sure to feel a pinch on your wallets. Because of this, you may be willing to get the most affordable packages for the interiors – but is it worth it? We weigh in on how you can get your money’s worth.
Know what goes into renovation costs.
Typically, most of the money goes into flooring and tiling, carpentry, hacking of walls, paintwork, furniture, appliances, and of course, your interior designer’s services, as well as costs for unexpected events that may arise. With all these in mind, you can set your budget by categorizing your needs and wants, based on the level of importance.
Think for the long term.
While it’s good to have a hold on your purse-strings and not go overboard with spending on building your dream home, you need to think of the long run – the lifespan of fixtures and products, maintenance, quality etc. Take a good kitchen tabletop, for example. Being used frequently, it will be prone to wear and tear. By investing in a high quality one, you’ll be saving on costs because you don’t have to spend money on buying a new one and hiring professionals to get it fixed. Plus, you’ll be saving time and trouble too – and those, as we know, are priceless.
Always remember: Good things don’t come cheap, and vice-versa.
Some things come cheap, but as they say, “you pay for what you get”. It would be good to spend a bit more on something that is reliable, as opposed to something that is cheap but unsafe. Some people get a kick out of buying cheap items (or even knock-offs), then realize that that compromised quality comes along with lots of problems later. That being said you don’t have to buy the most expensive thing on the market – just do some research to validate reliability before making your purchase.
