Ways to beat the chilly winters

With festivals and New Year being just round the corner, December is the month to rejoice. In India, this part of the year is the coldest and hence we love to stay warm and curl up in our blankets. Though people nag about the weather in this season, its one of my favorite season. People wear layers of warm clothes to keep themselves warm, definitely replicating the trends we watch on our favorite English TV series.Sun setting a little earlier and chilled evenings, Pune has always experienced such weather and hence it has been on everyone’s favorite list. We at Aksha Group understand the difficulties everyone faces in such seasons and hence we create abodes that are cosy, warm and protective. Having 1, 2 and 3BHK flats in Pune for sale, currently we are considered as one of the top builders of Pune. Our upcoming residential projects feature 1 and 2 and 3 BHK in Moshi, Chikhali for sale.

Here’s how we think we you can beat the winter blues:

Use darker shade curtains with thicker fabric:Replace your curtains with darker shades curtains. Dark shade curtains will help to absorb sunlight and also keep the room warm. Keep the curtains drawn in the evenings so that air doesn’t pass in. Thicker fabrics will create obstacle for chilly air.

Let sunlight fall in: In the day time open up the windows so that natural light will fall in directly. The sun rays that fall will keep the room warmer.

Use candles: Utilize the candles that you have at home. Lit them up in the evenings that will add more warmth to the house. The advantage of candles is that it creates a peaceful environment that brings backs the emotions to life. It’s a magical moment that is much needed in everyone’s life.

Room heaters would help: Use the conventional room heaters to heat up the room. These heaters are cheap and easy to install and of utmost use during the winter season. Using this appliance is easy and it heats the room fast and makes it cosy for the people living in there.

Change your food styles: Include more warming vegetables in your diet that provide warmth and nourishment.Carrot,potatoes,radish are a good pick.Dry fruits like dates and nuts are good. Poultry and sea food are full of rich proteins and are the ideal food for winters. In the evenings go for piping hot soups to maintain the balance in diet. Hot tea and coffee are also very helpful. Winter is the perfect season to stay home. Eating the right food and having a good comfortable sleep is what we think winter is about. Use this time to snuggle up in your blanket and read your favorite book or watch your favorite movie. Stay indoors and spend some quality time with your loved ones. Winter will go away before we even know so make sure you have some winter fun before the heat again sets in.

Project amenities, location are always a point of discussion. For a young couple to who has purchased the house with their hard earned money is like a dream come true. They call it a dream home.

Usually couples or smaller families go for 1 BHK homes keeping in mind their finances. That one bedroom, hall, kitchen and bathroom is perfect for small families or very few people like 3 friends staying in. But if there are more people living, then 2BHK is the only rescue. If finance is pretty sorted for you, then you should definitely consider a 2 BHK apartments with Aksha Group – one of the top builders in Pune who has comfortable 2 BHK apartments in nearly 7-8 projects of theirs.


2 BHK is preferred over 1 BHK, why ?

You can also use this additional space to recreate and pick hobbies that you always wanted to. Create a gallery or library there, make it a dance room and groove to your favorites there.

Additonal Amenities: When you purchase a 2 BHK the developer always gives additional benefits to the 2BHK and 3 BHK owners. Like n extra parking space or more member reservation at the club house events or maybe a bigger balcony. It comes like a package, bigger the house, more are the amenities and comforts. Like at Aksha Group the builder has numerous 2BHK flats project in Dudalgoan and has given top line amenities like Amphitheater, Jogging track, Yoga and meditation hall, Gym, Party Lawn etc.

Perfect for Future: Whether you’re a married couple or single 2BHK will be a good option for you because the family will always grow in future with new relations. Also there is a possibility of family, guests and friends coming over. When finalizing upon the flat always keep the project location on a priority.

In this regard, Aksha Group has all their projects in the central parts of the city like Moshi, Chikhali with has direct access to Spine road.

Home Loan Checklist

Home Loan is a life saving facility granted to buyers of the property. With the ever increase in today’s property rates, it becomes impossible to make full payment of the property. So usually people opt for home loan facility where the bank/ financial institute pays on behave of the individual. But this decision has to be taken very carefully as one is accountable to pay the money back to the bank in the stipulated time.

Hence to avoid the nightmare of a faulty or not understood home loan procedure, keep the following things in mind:

Study the available options: It’s very important that one researches the various options available in the market. Beyond the information given by the agent, one should do personal research as well. Before taking any decision compare & consider.

Calculate your EMI: Before deciding the amount of the EMI keep a track of your monthly spending. Calculate the monthly costs plus some amount for unforeseen emergencies & then decide upon your EMI.

You can bargain: Even though the financial institutes say the Rate of Interest is fixed but you can always bargain and get it reduced. After all we are Indians & we love to bargain. If the negotiation saves money, why not.

Keep you documents handy: Keep all the necessary documents ready for the loan. Make sure you have original copies of each important document. Your bank transactions, credit card payments play a very important role in getting the loan sanction.

Read the documents: Run yourself through the documents several times before signing on the dotted line. Until your 100% sure do not go ahead.

Foreclose Procedure: As per the new norms RBI has cancelled the foreclose penalty so at the time of foreclosing your loan make sure you don’t pay anything extra. Most important is if you have saved certain lump sum amount, quickly pay it and foreclose your loan as soon as possible & free yourselves from the burden of EMI.

Home Decor ideas for smaller sized homes

Realty firms these days are emphasizing more on budget homes or cheap flats. These upcoming residential projects are for people with a tight budget, who are also ready to compromise on the size of the house. With the limitation on size in these budget flats / homes, purchasing the right home decor becomes a little tricky. Just because you have a small house doesn’t mean you have to live with basic home decor & furnishing. Modern & trendy home decor stuff used in a right way will make your space look bigger. Try the below mentioned home decor ideas that will make your tiny home space look bigger than ever before:

 

Curvy is the key

Usually these small homes are box in shape. So use your furniture to add curves to the house. Go for a round dinning & centre table. Go for more circular decor articles like round clock, round mirror. Add more oomph by using couches, sofas with slightly curve shape.

 

Use lighter shades:

Be very specific when choosing colors for the house. While dark & deep colors make the room look smaller, light colors make the space look bigger & open up the entire space. If your house already has a dark color scheme, cover it up by using curtains, carpets or rug of lighter shades. If you’re lucky enough to buy a new construction house, make sure the color hues are paid enough importance.

 

Go vertical in your storage

Do not go horizontal or extend sideways in storing things at smaller homes. When space is the major concern, creatively create shelves & place things one over the other. Use the wall space to hang or elevate racks one over the other this not only looks classy but also requires less space.

 

Create depth by adding layers

Add layers to the bed sheets with comforters or pillows & cushions. You can also layer your floor rug by placing one over the other of different shapes. Layering adds depth which can be easily achieved. But that doesn’t mean you just pile things one over the other. Placing cushions or bedding in contrast colors, prints & shapes creates the charm.

 

Use Multipurpose furniture

Using the right kind of furniture that doesn’t occupy too much space is ideal in such homes. Like a Sofa cum Bed that can be folded while watching TV and can be drawn down to make a bed in the night. Smart furniture like foldable dining table or hollow ottoman looks great and also requires less space.
