    Indian Apts are not what they used to be.
    Currently almost everything is available here, albeit with a little bit of searching, one can find anything available in the west here.
    So Indian Apts are catching up with the west.

    But ask any foreigner or expat, and they'll tell you that the areas that are still lacking are the Bathrooms and kitchens here.
    Even luxury apts have sparse bathrooms and certain kitchens, like open kitchens are simply not a feasible option with Indian cooking.
    Now I was the biggest culprit here.. I had one look at the bathrooms in my place and said "Oh hell with this.. there's nothing that I can save and reuse in here"

    So.. after 2 yrs of being ashamed of my bathrooms, decided to renovate them.
    Might as well rebuild the kitchen while I'm at it.
    Need help designing them tho :)

    Pics of the Old Guest bathroom:

    Design of this bathroom is mostly but not entirely done.
    What to save: Nothing, absolutely nothing, lets get rid of everything and start new.
    Color scheme: Black & Silver, with white fittings and dabs of Red.

    Pic of old kitchen:
    Gas pipes have already been moved out in the pic.
    Nothing designed yet.
    Any suggestions welcome.
    Things to save: Cooking Range and Microwave.
    Color Scheme: Nothing designed yet, but must include Black and Silver (color scheme of my apt)

    There is a big market for Sanitary fittings in your area itself. Otherwise next best bet is to visit one of the designer outlets on MG road and Sikendarpur (Google the metro station).

    #2 Is the size of the kitchen staying the same?

    If not, I would take a bit of the area where the fridge and cabinet were, and expand the kitchen. Also to give it a open window that looks into the living room. The feeling of space would be much more.

    For the guest bathroom:
    Sanitary ware mostly coming from place called Janakpuri.
    Except the main unit, whose showroom is right here (patparjung) :)
    Fittings I got from near you in Ghitorni, hee.. even got a built in (mounted) ashtray there.

    Want two more matching sets for free?
    Think I have same set in other bathroom.
    --- Double Post Merged, Jun 10, 2014 ---
    Nope.. other bathroom has same commode.. but marble top sink. (don't think the marble top can be saved tho)

    Doesn't matter I guess.. why would you want same one.. and it'd probably cost you more to transport than it's worth

    That's true. Absolutely nothing wrong with mine after 12+ (appox) yrs.
    1.5 yrs back I replaced 2 10+ yr old living room fans from Polar.. with top of the line stylish Black/Silver 6.5K+ each fans.
    Nothing wrong with old fans.. after all these yrs.. just wanted the looks to match decor
    My new super duper fans however are already squeaking.. one needs to be wacked with a stick to start! LOL
    Something to be said about this old stuff.

    +1 to the Old School Ceiling fans, my home still has ceiling fans from decades ago - they were manufactured by some Govt. Company then (don't remember the name) which is closed now. They've been running maintainance free for 25+ years.
