Hussain, an expatriate, desired to give his old single-storey house at Randathani in Malappurama, Kerala, a modern makeover to suit the times and also to arrange more facilities that match the lifestyle of the family. The rooms in this 20-year-old house were small and congested. Besides, the interior spaces didn’t have enough supply of natural light and air. These were rectified while renovating the structure.
A car porch, sit-out and a bedroom have been additionally built in the front side, making the façade more prominent and regal. An elegant combination of red, white and grey hues adds oodles of charm to the exteriors. The family loves greenery and insisted that the trees on the plot shouldn’t be cut down while extensions were beng made to the structure. This amazing house stands against the backdrop of beautiful greenery. The front yard is maintained in its natural layout to allow the rain water to seep into the ground.
Designed in 2300 sqft area, this fabulous abode has a car porch, sit-out, living and dining areas, four bedrooms, and kitchen with a work area, upper living area, balcony and an open terrace as well. Marble is paved on the floor in the ground floor while marbonite is used for flooring in the upper storey.
The old stair area was crammed. This was dismantled and the extensions were made to make this area more open and spacious. Besides, this open area now brings lots light and air into the house. Meanwhile, the handrails of the stairway feature the classy combination of steel and wood.
The partitions of the old rooms were knocked down to make them more spacious and roomy. An old bedroom has been attached to the living area to make it open and spacious. Extensions have been made to add more space to the dining area as well.
The old kitchen has been made spacious by adding extensions. Besides, the kitchen got upgraded with modular facilities. Meanwhile, the cabinets are done in ACP sheets. An adjacent work area too has been arranged as part of the kitchen.
There is one bedroom on the ground floor while three are on the upper storey. All the bedrooms are bath-attached with in - built wardrobes for storage.
Interestingly, the renovation of this house, including the additional construction and furnishing, was completed on a reasonable budget of Rs 30 lakh. The family, meanwhile, is elated that their newly renovated house looks as perfect and spectacular as they have imagined.
Among the various factors that helped in keeping a check on the expenses, reusing furniture like couches, dining table, cots, chairs and windows played a vital role. Moderately priced marbonite is used for flooring in the upper storey. The cupboards and wardrobes are done in aluminum composite panel.
