4/5 - (1 vote)

Namaste readers! ๐Ÿ™ My name is Rohan and I have been working as an interior designer in Pune for over 10 years now. In this blog, I wanted to give you an inside look at interior design costs in Pune from my personal experience.

As a young boy, I always had a creative spark ๐Ÿ”ฅ and loved drawing layouts and floorplans in my notebooks rather than paying attention in class! ๐Ÿ˜… I knew early on that I wanted a career where I could channel my creative juices daily. After graduating top of my design school class, I started taking on small interior design projects in Pune.

Fast forward to today, my small business has turned into a full-fledged design firm taking on residential and commercial projects across the city. I have designed over 500+ homes, offices, restaurants, and more in the past decade! ๐Ÿ Through the ups and downs, I have gathered extensive first-hand experience dealing with interior design costs, budgets, executing projects, and working with clients.

Letโ€™s get into the details! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ



๐Ÿš Residential Interior Design Costs

When clients approach me for their home or apartment interiors, the first thing they always ask is โ€œRohan, what is this going to cost me?โ€ ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ

I always assure them that costs can vary a lot and provide them with an estimate only after site visits and gathering project requirements. Hereโ€™s a look at typical cost brackets for different budget types:


Budget Interior Design

๐Ÿ“ 2BHK – Rs. 4-7 Lakhs
๐Ÿ“ 3BHK – Rs. 7-10 Lakhs

3bhk interior design

This budget is for clients who want to revamp their homes with simple upgrades like paint, basic furniture, and some decorative items. I advise going for neutral tones, multi-purpose furniture, and trying to reuse existing pieces in new ways. ๐Ÿช‘


Mid-Range Interior Design

๐Ÿ“ 2BHK – Rs. 10-15 Lakhs
๐Ÿ“ 3BHK – Rs. 15-20 Lakhs

2bhk interior design

In the mid-range budget, clients can afford modular storage units, wooden or MDF furniture, decorative lighting, and accessories. We also design one or two statement walls with materials like 3D tiles, grasscloth wallpapers, or textured paints. ๐Ÿ–ผ๏ธ


High-End Interior Design

๐Ÿ“ 2BHK – Rs. 15-25 Lakhs
๐Ÿ“ 3BHK – Rs. 25-35 Lakhs

For luxury home interiors, the sky’s the limit! We use premium branded furniture, smart home technology integrations, high-end imported materials, and more. With bespoke designs highly customized to the clientโ€™s taste, even small 2BHKs can look grand and spacious. ๐Ÿ˜Ž



Factors Affecting Overall Costs

Here are some key factors that determine the overall budget and costs for interior design projects:

๐Ÿ”ป Home size – 2BHK vs 3BHK vs 4BHK
๐Ÿ”ป Choice of materials and furniture – premium vs budget
๐Ÿ”ป Customizations vs readymade designs
๐Ÿ”ป Structural changes needed – demolitions, false ceilings, etc
๐Ÿ”ป Technology integrations – smart lighting, security, etc
๐Ÿ”ป Use of unconventional elements – graffiti walls, glass partitions, etc

I analyze all these factors during initial site visits and consultations before providing the tentative quotes. ๐Ÿ“

Letโ€™s take a look at average cost breakdowns:

๐Ÿณ Kitchen Interiors

Kitchens are one of my favorite spaces to design in any home! ๐Ÿ˜‹ Modern modular kitchens not only improve efficiency but become a stylish focal point.

Here are typical costs involved:

๐Ÿ”น Modular Cabinet & Loft – Rs. 1-3 Lakhs
๐Ÿ”น Chimney & Hob – Rs. 15,000-30,000
๐Ÿ”น Fixtures like Sink, Taps, etc. – Rs. 15,000-30,000
๐Ÿ”น Backsplash Tiles – Rs. 5,000-15,000
๐Ÿ”น Counter Tops – Rs. 10,000-25,000

I have contacts with multiple kitchen brands like Insino, Treko, Da Mano, and more offering products across price ranges. ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿณ

Some newest design trends I recommend trying are:

๐Ÿ”ธ Glass & metal finishes
๐Ÿ”ธ Undercabinet LED lighting
๐Ÿ”ธ Matching cabinet colors for a seamless look
๐Ÿ”ธ Creative open shelving instead of overhead cabinets
๐Ÿ”ธ Mixing gloss & matte finishes

Small thoughtful touches go a long way in kitchen interiors! ๐Ÿ’ก



โญ Commercial Interior Design

I have taken on some commercial projects for office spaces, restaurants & cafes too. The costs here vary greatly based on:

๐Ÿ”น Office layouts – private cabins, conference rooms, pantry, etc.
๐Ÿ”น Cafe setup costs – kitchen equipment, specialty lighting & acoustics, etc.
๐Ÿ”น Quantity & type of customized furniture needed
๐Ÿ”น Technology integrations of audio-visual, data cabling, surveillance, etc.

Since commercial spaces see heavier foot traffic compared to homes, materials need to be extra durable. Maintenance costs also need consideration. โš–๏ธ

๐Ÿšง Design Process

Once budgets are agreed upon and initial conceptual designs finalized, next comes the exciting execution phase!

Week 1 – Our team works on finalizing detailed drawings, procuring supplies, and readying the site for renovations. This means using safety gear for demolition works, covering up floors & walls, and sorting debris. ๐Ÿงฐ

Week 2 & 3 โ€“ With major demolition, tiling, and paintwork underway, we start fitting the designed elements on site as per plans. I review progress daily and tweak small details if required. I also show clients photo updates on WhatsApp regularly for transparency. โœ”๏ธ

Week 4 – Finishing week is all about attention to detail from installing specifier lighting, and hanging artwork symmetrically to dressing up furniture with cushions and greenery. The team does a full thorough clean before the final reveal. ๐Ÿก

I always keep buffer days included in the timeline so we can accommodate any minor delays or reworks if needed. Open communication is key!

The sense of fulfillment when I finally hand over the keys to amazed clients makes all the long days worth it in the end! ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ—
