2000 FAQ's on Home Interiors and Interior Design Best Practices

Imagine a repository of 2000 Frequently Asked Questions and how to's on interior design and home interiors....how cool would that be. 


Well, surprise surprise, we crossed the 2000 Q&A milestone on THIS blog last week - look through the comments under each of the blog posts. The content in there put together is probably richer than whats there in the blog posts themselves.

So do take time to browse through and if not all then you may find most of your questions on home interiors and design answered in there. In the unlikely event that you don't find an answer to whats pressing on your mind, then, as always, feel free to pop it across.

Keep chiming, signing off

  1. Hi Nandita
    I am based out of Gurgaon and looking for some suggestions on picking up kitchen built in hobs with brass burners. Which brand do you recommend me ?
    Also what are your views on the FFD (flame failure device) feature that only a couple of brands offer ?
    Thanks for your advise :)

    1. You may choose between Elica, Faber or Kaff. I also recently came across hobs from Bosch however am yet to use them.
      A flame failure device is good to have but not an absolute necessity, also it is available as an option (at an additional cost) on a number of hob models

  2. Hi Nandita,
    Was looking for contacts who could deliver wardrobes + beds (integrated) like Milano Smart Living in Bangalore. Any help would be highly appreciated.

    1. There is a Bangalore based startup called Invisiblebed (www.invisiblebed.com) that has something like Milano. I have however not used their products in my work, hence cannot recommend one way or the other. You may want to check them out.

  3. Hi Nandita,

    I have read some of your blogs...must say very informative.

    I am currently getting interiors done for my apartment and do have some questions:

    1.) Are PU coated laminates same as Acrylic?
    2.) Can PU coated laminates be pressed onsite by carpenter?
    3.) Any disadvantages of getting the laminates done by carpenter compared to factory finish?
    4.) How is Alaskan white stone for kitchen platform compared to nano white? Any other better options available for pure white stone for kitchen platform?
    5.) I am confused between Hi Gloss laminates, acrylic and DUCO paint for the TV unit and partition between living and dining. Which one will look best and which one will require less maintenance?
    6.) How are PVC coated laminates compared to Acrylic? Can these be pressed onsite by carpenter (without factory finish/pressing)?

    1. Responses below
      1.) Are PU coated laminates same as Acrylic?
      NM: Never heard of PU Coated Laminates. You get ready made PU Coated shutters, not laminates.
      2.) Can PU coated laminates be pressed onsite by carpenter?
      NM: Again, not sure where you are getting the option for PU Coated "Laminates"
      3.) Any disadvantages of getting the laminates done by carpenter compared to factory finish?
      NM: Factory finish is usually better, only good carpenters can match it.
      4.) How is Alaskan white stone for kitchen platform compared to nano white? Any other better options available for pure white stone for kitchen platform?
      NM: Whiteness in "stone" slab is dependent on the lot and varies by vendor, there is no standard for whiteness available in stone. If you are looking for pure white then you should consider solid surfaces (Corian/ Hanex/ LG) - they have the whitest of the white available
      5.) I am confused between Hi Gloss laminates, acrylic and DUCO paint for the TV unit and partition between living and dining. Which one will look best and which one will require less maintenance?
      NM: Trick question really. Duco will look good but will also require higher maintenance compared to Hi Gloss Laminates or acrylic.
      6.) How are PVC coated laminates compared to Acrylic? Can these be pressed onsite by carpenter (without factory finish/pressing)?
      NM: If you are going for pressing the laminates onsite by a carpenter then it is best to stick to regular laminates

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
