Akhil and Deepa are excited to share the experiences of designing their own dream abode at Chanthavila in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. The couple began doing the homework as soon as they decided to construct a new house. There were multiple rounds of discussions about the design features and the amenities that they wanted. The small family of a father, mother and son required minimal yet comfortable amenities. So, they designed a single-storey house with just two bedrooms. Moreover, they wanted to build their dream abode without burning a hole in their pocket.
The structure has been designed to suit the rectangular 9 cents plot. Interestingly, an additional floor could be built, if required, in the future. The interiors, meanwhile, have been designed to receive a lot of natural light and cool breeze from all sides.
Designed in 1700 sqft, this cosy house has a sit-out, formal and family living areas, dining space, kitchen with a work area and two bedrooms.
The interiors are designed in an open theme to make the spaces look and feel spacious. Besides, the interiors aren’t overcrowded with furniture or other decors. Meanwhile, the custom-made furniture pieces look perfect. Some walls are beautifully highlighted with texture paints.
Usually, in quaint houses, there would only be one living area. However, there is a family living space beside the elegantly furnished formal living area. This ensures privacy and a comfortable ambience to the spaces.
A large door in the family living area opens to a patio. The family members often relax here by sipping coffee or reading a book.
The couple preferred a spacious kitchen that opens to the dining area instead of a closed one. However, installing a good exhaust system or an extractor fan is vital to eliminate the fumes and smell while cooking. Moreover, the partition area could be used as a breakfast counter too. You could enjoy a conversation or enjoy the company of others while cooking.
The family has named their beautiful home ‘Nila’. Their relatives and guests are showering praises for designing such an amazing and comfortable home that suits a small family.
