    1. Its happening iteratively - the FB page as well as a website for just the Wardrobes is in the works....watch this space :)
      The most widely available switches are from Anchor (now bought over by Panasonic), they are easily replaceable hence recommended. In terms of quality however Woods are a shade better.

  5. Many Congrats Nandita...n wish u all the very best:) Must say that your blogs are awesome and v helpful. I have a small doubt, regarding pine plywood. In one of your earlier post you said that we should not use pine plywood until our budget is really tight, but can it be used for wall panelling if not than what will you recommend. Also is Pine plywood same as commercial plywood and is pine plywood recommended for making furniture as t.v. units and bed or not...Thanks a lot Neha

    1. Thanks Neha - I don't recommend Pinewood for making anything. Pinewood that I have come across in Bangalore is softer than regular commercial board/ ply (ISI marked) and gives issues in the long run

    1. For sofas & beds you have some standard places in Bangalore - try Simply Sofas, Stanley, Tangent, Homestop, Lifestyle, Fab Furnish, Evok, Urban Ladder, @Home etc.
      Also know that Bangalore prices are at least 20% higher than anywhere else in India hence "reasonable" may be difficult. :)
      Elica is good as a product but their after sales is a ??

  8. Hi Nandita,

    Congarts.all the best for future.

    I have a question regarding kitchen work

    I am thinking of using green fly bwr/bwp grade for my kitchen. But i have checked many shops none of green ply has ISI marked.But it is written that it is bwr/bwp. is it ok ? or it is fake green ply? which brand of plywood is the best?

    1. The IS grade/ Specification (IS 303/ 701/ 1659 etc.) will definitely be mentioned on the ply/ board - if that is mentioned then you know what to buy.
      The only way to avoid a fake is to buy from a trusted source

  12. i am having black granite at window frames , so how to convert that granite area in wooden finish without using plywood as my whole bedroom is having wooden finish.

    Should i try polish PU on granite ??

    1. Polish or paint will not last on top of a granite surface. In my knowledge there is no solution to your issue.
