How many times have you caught yourself envisioning your dream house every time you window-shopped at home décor stores? All the time, I bet. Or in some cases, either succumbed to temptation or willed yourself to walk away with a promise of “the next time.” Asklaila gives you the low-down of some of Hyderabad’s top home décor stores.
Planning on giving your home a chic makeover? Then check out @home opposite City Centre (Banjara Hills). This place has every conceivable home accessory that one can think of. From lightings to furnishings to floorings to ready-to-bag virtual bed rooms to kids’ bedroom collectibles, these are all worth a dekko. Similarly, walk into Home Town, next to Hyderabad Central Mall (Panjagutta), that caters to every household need.
Home ‘a’ fair (Begumpet) specialises in kitchen and bathroom accessories, while Sajawat (Domalguda) boasts of a classic range of curtains be it velvet, lace work, silk or cotton. Match these with grandiose teakwood and oakwood furniture from Beautiful Living (Banjara Hills), or go in for the contrast and compliment look with contemporary paintings and sculptures from Gallery Space (Banjara Hills) and handcrafted porcelain figurines from Lladro (Punjagutta).
Donning an all-ethnic look for your home? Then look no further than the Government Handicrafts emporium, Lepakshi at Musheerabad, which stores handicrafts from Kashmir, Muradabad, Delhi, Mysore, Gujarat amongst others to local products such as bidriware, filigree and lambadi works, Kondapally toys, and Nirmal paintings to name a few.
Fab India ’s (Karkhana) home décor range offers limited, but exquisite range of home furnishings, cane baskets, lamp shades, curtains, jute dhurries, and handcrafted home utility products. Kalanjali at Saifabad, Sheela’s Arts & Crafts at Basheerbagh, and Vishwakarma Art Gallery at Panjagutta are other popular haunts for ethnic artefacts.
However, a word of caution: Beautiful homes often come with a hefty price, so do ensure that your wallets are suitably full.
