We got in touch with our designer, Chetan Jangid, to know more about this compact home in Bangalore. One of the first things he told us was how clear the clients were regarding what they wanted from their designer. Their original brief was that they were looking for a simple and homely design so that their home would look like ‘home’ and not a hotel. In addition, they had a budget that had to be followed and a tight timeline. So join us for a tour of this 2 BHK flat in Bangalore.

#1: Entry Into a Divine Space

The smart buy in this home

When you have a compact home, every part of the house counts! The entryway is one of those places that is often overlooked. Chetan made the most of the space available in this Bangalore 2BHK by adding a modular laminate storage unit here that comes with maximum space but is low-cost. You will also notice a lot of blues in this home, a colour that the homeowners love. This blue theme begins from the foyer itself and extends to almost all the rooms, maintaining design continuity. For the sake of comfort and convenience, Chetan also added seating with the storage unit so that the homeowners could sit and wear their shoes comfortably.

As you move into the living room from the foyer, you will come across the unique pooja unit. Now you must have seen pooja units in the living room, separate pooja rooms, even wall-mounted mandirs. But have you ever seen a partition that comes with a pooja unit? The homeowners wanted a small and minimal partition to segregate the foyer and living spaces. Chetan created this custom partition with display racks. He then placed it on a modular storage unit from Livspace, ensuring space optimisation. Since the homeowners decided to place their pooja unit on this cupboard, Chetan custom-designed an additional top drawer for the pooja samagri

#2: Pops of Colours in the Living Room

Simple with bare walls is the look that the homeowners wanted for their living room in this Bangalore 2BHK. While the walls and flooring remain completely minimal, the seating adds pops of vibrant colours. Karthik and his wife wanted a TV unit in the living room that came with storage where they could keep their woofers. Considering the lack of space he had to work with, Chetan went ahead with a sleek blue unit with open and closed storage, perfect for a small room. 

#3: Tons of Storage in the Kitchen

The biggest investment in this 2 BHK flat in Bangalore is a kitchen packed with storage. Being a family of two, Karthik and his wife wanted a breakfast bar in the kitchen itself instead of a separate dining space, so that they could sit and eat while cooking. Apart from this, the only other requirement that they had was that the kitchen should have ample storage space. So, apart from the upper and base kitchen cabinets, Chetan also added lofts, a separate storage cabinet behind the breakfast bar, wicker baskets and a Tambor unit. And while he continued the blue colour theme in this space, the utility area is yellow to avoid monotony. 

#4: When One Wardrobe is Not Enough

The master bedroom in this Bangalore 2BHK was quite compact but Chetan managed to fit in the bed, a workstation, a dresser unit and not one, but two wardrobes in this space! To optimise the space available, Chetan designed a sleek workstation with wall ledges that would fit into a corner without taking up too much room. Similarly, the modular dresser unit is slim and fits into a niche beside the wardrobe. For the main wardrobe, Chetan gave the homeowners a 3-door almirah with lofts, ensuring maximum storage, while the sliding door mechanism promised space optimisation. Since Karthik and his wife wanted extra storage, Chetan gave them a 2nd 3-door wardrobe with a tinted glass shutter to display expensive sarees and suits.

#5: A Simple and Elegant Guest Room

Use reflective finishes when space is less

Like the master bedroom, the guest room was quite compact so Chetan kept it simple. Unlike the other rooms in this 2BHK flat in Bangalore, the guest bedroom has a neutral colour palette. Chetan fitted this room with the bare minimum — a bed, a dresser unit and a 2-door wardrobe with lofts. You will also notice that the laminate wardrobe has a glossy and reflective finish, which makes the small room look more spacious.

This Bangalore 2BHK is the perfect combination of beauty and functionality delivered on a budget. Also, check out this 850 sq. ft. Bangalore home that comes with ample storage.
