Royal to the last detail

The beauty of a house is not predicated upon how many square feet it is built upon as even a mid-sized 1000 sq ft house design for middle class families, like this one, looks elegant. Compact houses with one or two bedrooms embellished by efficient storage are in vogue these days. Glamorize the ambience of your house with glass windows, crafty doors and matching shutters. Enriched by ample parking space, these homes are an excellent find for those looking for low budget residential properties.

Who wouldn’t want to be a proud owner of a beautifully designed home replete with enviable first-class amenities? Contrary to popular notion, aesthetically pleasing houses can be cradled within small plots as well. Adding details like strategically placed wooden partitions, flower pots or even a lightweight staircase within the house to connect it to the first floor lends an element of class and spaciousness. Choose attractive exterior colours, designer gates and nestle a small garden space at the entrance of your house to lend a bucolic charm to your sweet haven.

A sophisticated two storey home

A house complete with a pretty little balcony is always an eye-catcher, especially if it offers stunning, picturesque views. Well-designed two storey houses don’t always need a massive property; they can be built on an area as compact as 800 square feet.

Spruce up your house by crafting large glass windows and doors in conjunction with picture-perfect exterior wall tiles. Add a cosy coffee corner in your balcony, or place a few plants to enliven the area; there are options galore for you to embrace. Checkout some balcony designs for inspiration here.

Decoration materials such as partitions, curtains, furniture, etc. used inside the house are also selected with great caution and attention. Terracotta tiles have been used extensively in this type of fusion style to give it a natural touch.
