We found the best Interior Designer from UrbanClap

After a lot of struggle in our respective careers, I and Rishabh decided to settle down in a Multi National Company in Mumbai. I have always been someone, who loves art and artistic things a lot. So, when we rented a beautiful house together, I just wanted it to look perfect and designed. I am the person who is more addicted to beautiful things rather than long lasting things.

My kitchen seems to be the perfect example of well designed cooking spot. Floral motifs’ dinner sets, standard cook ware and serve ware with precious glass ware decorated my kitchen, the way I wanted. But to design and decorate our new house we needed one among the best interior designers in Mumbai.

Interior designers are those who can design your home in the best possible way, according to your needs and demands. In Mumbai, you get to come across lot and lot of Interior designers, but the most important question is how to find the best among them? You can’t move one by one to their respective offices, in order to go through their portfolios; which sometimes are so pathetic that you think you can do this designing stuff on your own.

Rustic Industrial Bathrooms

If you watch a lot of home renovation shows on TV or enjoy flipping through design magazines, you’re well aware that “industrial rustic” is trending in the interior design world these days.

Not sure what we’re talking about? Industrial rustic might sound like a bit of a style conflict and it kind of is—but it’s a conflict that totally works! Think contrasting elements, like vintage patterns, alongside hard edges and cold metal textures alongside warm wood finish. The effect is certainly eclectic, but it can be truly stunning! Best of all, since industrial rustic is all about “unfinished” finishes and mixing and matching, it can be one of the most affordable interior design themes!

If you’re ready to incorporate an industrial rustic theme into your home, the bathroom is a great place to start! Let us share a few ideas with you about how to design the industrial rustic bathroom of your dreams.

  • When it comes to bathrooms, you’ll need to consider the wants and needs of the entire family.
  • Every part of a home contributes to the overall resale value of the property.
