Decorating your home with the best Interior Designer

This is the season of giving, sharing, celebrating, engagements and weddings! To be precise-this is the season to redecorate your home! You already have so much on your plate that needs to be supervised- food arrangements, guest lists, apparel shopping, gift shopping… it would be nice to take some sound advice from an expert for decorating your home. After all, this is the staging area of the celebration!
Decorating your home is an activity that requires careful attention. This does not just involve moving pieces of furniture around or purchasing a new sofa and curtain drapes. You want your home’s interior decoration to reflect your personality. And having the opinion of experts is certainly useful!

Shall we clarify a few of your concerns!

Why do you need an Interior Decorator-

After all, this is the Interior Home Decoration of your home and must incorporate decoration ideas that you have thought about. You can just as easily implement them! Contractors and Interior Decorators tend to have a fixed working plan that they want you to use. The plywood of their choice, interior designs to be chosen from among their existing portfolio, reluctance to work on a particular room but eager to work on the entire home decoration, and so on.
On the other hand, if the Interior Decorator is a professional, you will be given valuable suggestions on your very own ideas. You may perhaps want wall shelves in the living room to meet your storage requirement. The experienced Interior Decorator might possibly see that wall shelves do not suit the size of your living room- and give you alternative yet equally appealing suggestions. This is because the experienced Interior Decorator can professionally visualize that ‘after’ decoration picture better than you can!  

How to find an Interior Decorator-

The all important question! If your friends and family have taken the services of an experienced Interior Decorator and are satisfied, then half your work is done! You would want to hire the same decorator. If not, oh dear! This may take some time. Searching the local adverts, visiting decorators and checking their online website.  You want to find an Interior Decorator who has experience, is open to your suggestions and who wants to work as per your decorating requirements.

What services are provided by an Interior Decorator-

Do Interior Decorators just provide consultation and then guide you to a contractor?! How does it work? Interior decorators will understand your decorating requirement. They will then give you a few draft drawing versions to select from. After that, the selected version is then actually implemented with the help of their craftsmen and interior design team. 

What are you looking for in an Interior Decorator-

What is it that you are looking for?! Help with a few interior decorating suggestions? Advice on whether your decorating ideas are feasible and fit into your home? Or a start to finish service that transforms your home interior decoration!

Latest Interior Home Decoration ideas for your special event

It’s an engagement celebration- congratulations! Your home will be the ‘staging area’, the organizing zone, the control room for this happy event. Surely you want it to reflect your happiness too!
Too keyed up to think straight- you can stop worrying. We have the latest Interior Design Ideas for you to choose from, right here!

The theme-

Decide on a theme which you can then reflect throughout your home classic, traditional, international, glamor, etc.
So for Classic, you could use geometric shapes, basic colour palette, and clean lines to emphasize this theme. The picture frames could be arranged in the form of a basic shaped collage. Guests can be welcomed into a living room that has curtains, dhurries and cushion covers in basic colour monotones – blue, yellow or red. The dining table runner could reflect this theme with a cream background and simple border made of the basic colour palette. Oh, that’s classic!
There is a lot you can do with the traditional theme. Traditional motifs to decorate the living room and continue throughout your home, curios and may be a centerpiece for the room. Maybe bring out the vintage silverware and copper vessels that will certainly be appreciated by your guests.
International is the theme where you get to showcase items you brought back from travel or have collected as a hobby. That Paddington coffee mug and coaster set, or the London Eye showpiece. The Eiffel tower replica or a picture frame of sand dunes. Those postcards you may have collected from all your travels- sure will come in use now! Or how about a set of wall clocks that show international time! Or maybe a painting that depicts that vast Pacific ocean!
And glamor needs no introduction does it? Shimmer sheer curtains, bedazzled decor items, throw cushion covers in rich satin shades with tassels! Lace patterned place mats for the dining table with a rich cotton table runner in a pearl shade!
Oh, we are so excited with these themes! Have you managed to decide yet?

Coffee table-

Your living room will need a place to: keep a snack platter, hold empty tea cups, keep small change for miscellaneous payments, maybe a hand towel or two, some stationery items, etc! Well, the coffee table is your savior. You will be kept very busy in all preparations for this happy event. Don’t be rushed off your feet too! The coffee table will be there for you! With Interior Design Shops Online, you can choose from a variety of coffee tables in various styles with various compartment options.


How wonderful to have a fragrance throughout your home that celebrates your happy event! This is not an everyday occurrence after all! Strategically placed potpourri bowls will work their magic and keep the mood elevated! They potpourri sets are easy to use, are a very convenient form of fragrance and come in attractive containers to match your theme.

UPS inverter-

Maybe just an afterthought, but keep this at the back of your mind. Could the season be responsible for power failure? Or does your area face recurring power shortage? If investing in an inverter will be justified, then do not hesitate!
Now that you have a rough idea, go ahead and get started! Have a wonderful and memorable engagement.

Tips for Designing Office Space

Here are some tips to a well-designed office space:
1.     Size, structure and location:
What is the size you are looking for, for your office in square feet? Does it need to have separate rooms for reception, conference, workstations, etc? Can your office be situated in a building, does it have to be a shop front or a pillar-less showroom space. Would a garden view be suitable or is a mall more suited.

2.     Colour theme:
The structure and location of your office will help you in selecting an appropriate colour theme inside.
Let’s suppose your office is shopfront, the wall colour that attracts attention and second glances will certainly help customers walk through the door! 
Let’s suppose your office is situated in a building, then patterned wall colour might help the entering customers feel refreshed? Colour blocking could also be another option!  Rokoko is the HomeFloor Plan Designer who will address all these queries!

3.     Nature of business:
Is your office going to address manufacturing queries, outsourcing projects, fundraising activities, software designing…? Let’s suppose your office represents manufacturing. A wall colour with bold monotones might set the right theme.
Let’s suppose your office represents software designing. How about a connecting lines-patterned theme! Can you envisage probable images better!

4.     Décor:
The décor that you choose should tie in with the nature of business of your office. Your customers must feel that your office takes its work seriously.

For a manufacturing office- how about steel and ceramic décor. Maybe a steel water cooler, rather than the plastic water dispensing unit. Wrought iron lamp shades, book ends. And maybe a ceramic vase shaped like a building or one that is hand crafted to resemble one of your own manufacturing products.

If your office represents outsourcing- a world timepiece will be quite fitting with the theme! Also, décor pieces that represent the countries that you have outsourced for or outsourced to. And a Buddha statue, bamboo shoots, or classy wind chimes could strike the right note.

For an office that handles fundraisers- definitely notes from the beneficiaries. Maybe framed and hung strategically on the walls. Maybe caricatured strategically onto the wall. One wall specifically portraying upcoming projects. And a standee conveniently placed with brochures and donation method details- with pen holder!

For the office that houses software designing, the wall theme could be abstract or patterned. To connect the visiting customer to the product. And not to forget a lounge area for the techies to unwind that could comprise of relaxing décor. Maybe with some squishy stress objects.
Come to Rokoko for the best Office Space Interior Design Ideas.

5.     Once you cover these basics, choosing furniture should be a walk in the park… pun intended!
Chairs, workstations, conference tables, coffee table…. And blinds, storage space, artifacts and all.
Well, let’s go to the drawing board and chalk out a plan using these tips. And should you find yourself ‘stuck’, Rokoko’s expert interior designers are at your service! They will help make your dream office space a reality- online!

Kitchen Designing is All about Utilising that Space!

Home is where the heart is and heart is where the ummm… food is!
The kitchen is any home’s pride and joy. All utensils, heirloom pieces, silverware, delicate china, cookware, electric appliances- all await the hand/s that prepares those meals everyday.
The kitchen need not be cluttered with all things related to cooking. With the correct design, it can be a welcoming space for a sit down breakfast, a quick cup of tea and snacks when friends stop by and helping hands that sort vegetables over the weekend!

Every family has its unique needs that should be incorporated while designing the kitchen.
1.     Bachelor - use the kitchen for: quick snacks, putting together light meals, healthy juices, maybe a weekend get together with friends with some grilling or baking. And a place to browse your laptop, read the paper, etc so comfortable seating.
2.     Couple- a working couple will want: quick breakfast, putting together light meals, juices and hot beverages, with elaborate meals over the weekend, maybe a get together with friends that includes grilling or baking. And a cosy seating arrangement to share this food!
3.     Couple going into family planning mode- oh, the requirement list will now grow longer! Apart from the meals, cabinet space, tall units requirement, make this a child friendly (and child proof initially), etc.
4.     Small family unit- here as well, the emphasis will be on good space utilisation. With a mix of tall units and short-sized storage.
5.     Extended family unit- here elements from all the above categories will need to be considered!
6.     Retired family- will have their family members visiting every once in a while. Hence while the focus will be on a comfortable kitchen layout, other aspects need to be touched upon.
And then we turn to the essentials of a kitchen:
The layout, cabinet placement, electronic appliances placement, the kitchen trolleys and good lighting.
What are the important elements that make your kitchen a welcome space? Let us know:

A Handful of Steps to Get You There!

When it comes to our home, we want its essence to say-welcome! The space needs to be child friendly, pet friendly, must feel comforting to guests, host-a-party friendly…  the space also needs to incorporate sturdiness through the materials used- the wall paint, furniture, accessories and all other fixtures.
Maintenance of such a homely space is automatically done lovingly, but need not turn into a daily chore such as constantly scrubbing carpets, vacuuming the dust out of nooks and cracks…!
Here at Rokoko, we’ve got just the tips that will help you navigate to a redesigned interior design space that reflects your individual style… while being relatively easy to maintain!

The following steps will act as references to unveil just such an interior designer space:
Step 1: Which room are you looking to redesign? Or are you looking to redesign the entire house?
Just this one room. Alright, list down the improvements you have in mind. Think back on past instances where you said, “oh, dear.. this space would look so much better without….” Or “this piece of furniture has to be moved everytime we have guests” Or “oh, dear.. this …… should have been child friendly.” Or “this light fixing always reflects on ….. at night”
Basically you need to keep in mind is:
What changes you have to… have to make.
What improvements can be incorporated, since the space is being redesigned.
Looking to redesign the entire house? The above 2 guidelines will prove helpful, don’t you think? And for further guidance, our expert interior designers at Rokoko are always available to lend their assistance!
Step 2: Great! Now let’s look at your choices for: flooring, wall colour, furniture pieces (choose new, although we’ll renovate your existing beloved pieces too!)
For a reference, our catalogue at Rokoko can act as a starting point to get your inspiration juices flowing!
We have flooring options, wall paint, wall paint textures, wall paper options and furniture and accessory options as well!
For your much-loved and heirloom pieces- we can always explore the option of stripping, re-staining, re-cushioning, etc..
Step 3: Satisfied so far? Next step- Select the pricing package that will work best with you.
Rokoko understands your redesign needs and translates this into a pricing package that will suit your requirements and allow you access to our best interior design expertise.
Step 4: Excellent! Now for the measurements! With due respect, its time for the men in the family to feel involved in the redesign project! And the children can help.... ofcourse!
We have a selection of methods by which you can share the measurements of the selected room/ rooms/ house with our expert team. This will help us to offer appropriate suggestions to put together the right sized furniture and accessory pieces for the space that you have selected to redesign.

And those tricky nooks and cranies can effectively be transformed into wonderful spaces rather than overlooked spaces. Really, it’s a marvel how just changing the placement of a piece of furniture changes the look of an entire room! You’ve tried this right?
Step 5: Wonderful! Now let’s picture the redesign!
Our expert interior designers now put everything together for you to visualise with design illustrations using our online user-friendly interface, until you are satisfied!
Step 6: And let’s not forget to mention Rokoko’s shop and save feature!
The shopping requirement that you have in mind can be searched online right here on the Rokoko website, with pieces that match as well as Rokoko-recommended pieces. Which means you can browse online at your convenience, visualize how the pieces fit together in your redesign and then checkout- all in one place! Wait, there’s more! Contractors, craftsmen, wholesale finds are all in here as well!

Ready to welcome your redesign idea to a reality? Let’s Rokoko!
