My "Expert Corner" in Deccan Herald - Starts today

Deccan Herald has started an "Ask the Expert" section in their Friday Homes & Interiors segment where I will be answering reader queries. They possibly got inspired by the over 1600 Q&A on this blog :).

The first Q&A got published this morning - have pasted the snipping below. This gives you one more channel to write in with your questions ....and comes with the advantage of seeing your question in the "Newspaper" which is kind of nice.



Will look forward to more interaction through this new channel

Signing off for now

  1. Look forward to more articles such as this. Please address the ideal payment terms from a home owners perspective vis-à-vis engaging an interior decorator company - for example how much to comfortably pay at what stage of the project until final handover.

    1. Advance payments are standard practice in the Interiors Business. However understandably some customers are wary of the same.
      One may therefore want to get to a comfort level with a designer by making a token payment and getting back the design for just the Kitchen/ Living room for the same.
      The bulk advance payments for the execution in the agreed number of installments can then follow.

  2. Hi Nandita,
    I am planning for a sliding wardrobe with green ecotech block board shutters. The total height I have is 9 feet. I am thinking to avoid loft and instead of 7 ft wardrobe and 2 ft loft and do the full 9 feet sliding door and keep a shelf at the top for loft. Will this work or I will have any issues? What is the max height one can go with sliding doors
    Thanks

    1. The max height available in Board/ Ply is 8 feet you will hence need to join 2 boards which adds to the complication and the shutter will also be prone to bending. For a 9 foot shutter I will hence recommend using an aluminium frame.

    2. Hii nandita.,please comment about use of Multiwood, BWR grade laminated marine ply or wood for making modular kitchen Caracas

    3. I did explore multiwood some time back but was not convinced of it's long term durability and decided to stick with ply. I however cannot claim to know for sure how the multiwood will pan out in the long run

PS: If you have a question to ask then please note: The Q&A/ Comments interface on this blog below is unable to scale to the number of questions that we have been getting. Hence even if you post a question I am sometimes not able to reply to it due to technology limitations. To do away with this issue we have launched the Q&A module on The Studio website.

Hence if you have a question or if you posted a question earlier and did not get a response then please post it again at https://thestudiobangalore.com/questions-and-answers/ so that I am able to see and answer it

Regards
Nandita
