This Asian Paints interior design service helped the family build their getaway home on the outskirts of the city on a tight deadline
A recently bought farmhouse on the outskirts of Ahmedabad for a joint family of ten.
2,150 square feet.
Two and a half months.
A single floor with two bedrooms and attached bathrooms, a living room and open kitchen, along with a storeroom.
After staying indoors for most of the pandemic last year, Karan Shah and his joint family of ten wanted a quick getaway close to the city. “We have a large group of around 20 friends who meet up regularly every weekend, and wanted to spend more time outdoors. Along with this, we also liked the idea of having this weekend home to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and festivities through the year,” he explains.
After constructing this home, Shah (who runs his family’s manufacturing business) was on the lookout for finding the right designer to decorate the space. “The house is 25 kilometres outside the city, and to get it designed and decorated while running a business everyday was posing to be an impossible task,” he recalls, adding, “After hearing about the convenience of the Beautiful Homes Service from a couple of friends, it felt like a no-brainer to enlist a trusted brand like Asian Paints for the job.”
Karan: It was a very smooth process overall. The first thing that impressed me was how the designers visited our home in Ahmedabad to truly understand how we liked to live and what our design preferences are. They were so enthusiastic and took down notes and pictures of the smallest details. After that, and discussing what we were looking for in our new home, they presented a 3D mock-up of our designs.
This was a very clever way to go about the design process. Everyone’s imagination is subjective and this helped draw a clear picture of what our home would look like. We also saved on time as we barely had any changes after seeing the mock-up.
I had a very specific budget in mind based on the amount of work I wanted to get done at the farmhouse. Thankfully, Asian Paints was very understanding about it, and helped facilitate negotiations with the contractors to accommodate this.
Unfortunately, even though I meant to, I didn’t get to visit the property during the renovation as I was tied up with work every day. Thankfully, I was regularly kept abreast with the goings-on over the phone and via pictures. Any troubleshooting was also tackled this way.
Before the renovation began, we spent one full day with the contractor to select almost all the materials—from the fabrics and lights to the laminates and fixtures.
These days, everyone wants to own a beautiful home; yet no one has the time to invest in building it. There was a certain brand value expectation I had for Asian Paints when I chose the Beautiful Homes Service—and I was not disappointed. If there was any problem along the way, they were always quick to support us. Also, this is a line of work that’s known to never meet deadlines, but our home was handed over to us on the date we were promised. We were quite relaxed through the entire renovation—all we had to do was sit back and look forward to seeing our new home!
