Ten reasons why India is ready for a new interior design service

 

Whether you live in your own independent house, are in the process of moving into a new rental or have recently inherited a heritage property which has been in the family for generations, you’ll all have one thing in common—you want to make this space your own to call home and live in.

And, often, this involves some form to renovation or redecorating—which can range from minor sprucing to a full-blown revamp—to incorporate your own personal style and aesthetic into space. In India, while there’s no dearth of skilled labour, architects, designers, and decorators, we struggle with the process of coordination, communication, execution and time management, often failing to bring a home project together seamlessly.

 

A NEW DESIGN SERVICE TAILOR-MADE FOR YOU
After years of dominating the paint and colour industry in India, Asian Paints has launched its latest offering—Beautiful Homes Service. Enlisting expert interior designers, who’ve worked across the length and breadth of the industry, the Beautiful Homes Service takes care of executing every task in your home renovation from start to finish.

This ensures a hassle-free and time-saving experience for anyone with a vision to remodel or design their home but lacking the time or patience to coordinate and project manage between the army of people required to finish the job.

WHAT WILL OUR IDEA OF HOME BE POST THE PANDEMIC?
In these unprecedented times, with new norms and provisions being put forth for our health and social distancing, the Beautiful Homes Service has stayed sensitive to the times and catered their entire process from start to finish with this in mind. Once you sign up on our website, everything is taken forward digitally at a time and place convenient to you. From your first conversation with the customer experience specialist to discussing your ideas and vision with an expert interior designer over a video call you will not, at any point, be put at risk of coming in close physical contact or breaking social distancing rules with our experts and managers. However, if you live in a green zone (or at a time when we’re finally rid of this pandemic crisis) and prefer a face-to-face meeting with the team, this can be arranged on a circumstantial basis, if deemed fit, as well. If the situation arises for labourers to work in your house while you reside in it, strict safety and sanitization measures will be followed with masks, PPE kits, and sanitizers given to every individual entering your home.

An initial rough design proposal will be presented to you on a 3D visualizer to inspect and make changes. This 3D visualizer has been created by Asian Paints, and specifically custom-made for the Beautiful Homes Service. It is an expert tool with features that surpass any other existing visualizers in the industry.

5. WHAT YOU SEE IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU’LL GET
With the Beautiful Homes Service, you can guarantee your designs and ideas being executed exactly as you’d envision them. For this, after the first video discussion with the expert interior designer, you will be presented with a 2D design and a 3D visualizer output of the plans for your home. If there are still any changes you would like to make at this stage, they will be incorporated accordingly till you agree on the renders you see and we have your approval.

 

6. A DEDICATED PROJECT MANAGER TO OVERSEE AND EXECUTE YOUR VISION
For every step of the material selection, your dedicated Customer Experience Specialist will still remain your single point of contact, taking down all your choices and selections and executing them with the rest of the team. Simultaneously, you’ll also be handed over the final 3D design approved by you, along with a work schedule for the entire project created by the assigned project manager.
A project manager is assigned at this stage to play a crucial role in ensuring each task in your home renovation is executed and completed swiftly and efficiently, and working out a schedule for this with systematic timelines.

 

7. SEAMLESS UPDATES ON A REGULAR BASIS
Once the project begins on the ground, you don’t need to worry about multiple coordinations, conversations, or staying up to date with individual parties. It will all be overseen by your dedicated Customer Experience Specialist, who will be receiving regular updates from the project manager keeping track of the site.

 

8. THE JOY OF OWNING YOUR OWN BEAUTIFUL HOME
After every corner of paint has dried and all your designs are in place, rendering the project complete, your Customer Experience Specialist will walk you through your very own, newly renovated beautiful home.
