What should be the interior design of the house? This is the most frequently asked question in house building.
How to coordinate interior decoration according to architecture? This question is equally important.
Interior decoration should be such that it can make the house look attractive. Not only attractive, but also comfortable.
Until a decade and a half ago, there was no market for interior decoration in Nepal. Some people, after building a house, would pay attention to the decoration of the house on the basis of hobbies. Many were dominated by the traditional decoration system. In fact, it was not until then that the interior decoration business became commercial.
Interior designer Archana Shah Singh came to Nepal 15 years ago after completing her studies in this field. But the large taxpayer service office, which has to accommodate a large number of employees in a small space, asked him for interior design. That is the interior decoration of the first government office made by Shah.
How has this sector progressed so much in the last one and a half years? She spoke about the current state of Nepal’s interior design and the reasons for its proliferation:
The field of interior design, which seemed non-existent till about a decade and a half ago, has expanded to a good market, especially in Kathmandu. When land prices were low and house area was high, interior design was not very important. But when the ‘space value’ gradually became more expensive. Due to the shrinkage, the compulsion of many people to work in a small space has started to increase. After that, the prevalence of interior design has increased in urban areas including Kathmandu.
Everyone who designs has their own values and beliefs. I have an original style in interior decoration. When designing any interior, first of all what is the context, for whom and for what purpose is it being designed? It is noted that. Interior design is to manage a small space and not make any space useless. So the design is done keeping in mind the same essence.
The relationship between interior design and architecture
Vastu Shastra is related to the lifestyle of every human being. Vastu also belongs to the house, it belongs to the land, it belongs to the room inside the house and the direction in which the material to decorate the room in a subtle way is also related to the architecture.
Nowadays, arranging architecture in the process of interior design is extremely challenging. In a very small space, you have to carry as much material as possible. When arranging the building, the space may be empty or all the materials may not fit. When the object is not fixed, it may not be stable. So nowadays it has become a very challenging task to design according to the needs and architecture of the householder.
Of course, architecture is not something that everyone agrees on. For those who believe it is everything and for those who do not believe it is nothing. But most of us have a laid back attitude when it comes to designing a home.
The advantage of combining architectural design
There are some reasons behind designing Vastu by combining both those who believe in Vastu and those who do not. On the basis of what we have said in old age, we still follow the words of not putting a door on the west side and not a pillow on the north side in the place where the wind blows from the west.
This is because keeping the windows and doors in the same direction as the wind blows can make people sick. Therefore, windows and doors are not kept in that direction even for security. In this way, even now, when designing, we do not design with the north facing.
Things to pay attention to the interior decoration
The most important thing to pay attention to when designing an interior is to make it comfortable for the users and their quality of life. That is the main thing. In addition to that, there should be a lot of space in the place where there is a child, and when designing a supermarket, you should pay attention to make it non-stick with the goods.
