- Clean kitchen sink disposal.The handiest and best all-around solution seems to be vinegar ice cubes. Put some vinegar in an ice tray and let it freeze, then run the ice cubes through the disposal.
- Inspect your fire extinguisher(s) : This inspection doesn’t require much: ensure it has easy access (not being blocked by a garbage can or anything else), such that the gauge shows adequate pressure, and that it has no visible signs of wear and tear.
- Run water and flush toilets in unused spaces.This mostly applies to guest bathrooms, or any other sinks/water sources you don’t use on a regular basis. The idea is to prevent grime or any other kind of build up. Regularly running a little bit of water will prevent this.
- Give your house a deep clean.Take one Saturday every six months with your whole family, and give the whole house a proper scrub. Appliances, windows, dusting every nook and corner, etc. Keeping things clean and not letting dirt/grime accumulate over years will help keep your home in top shape.
Inspect the exterior of your home. Is any paint chipping? Is any siding damaged from winter? Are there any holes in your brick? Take a close look all around your house, and make any repairs as needed. Also be sure to check the foundation for any cracks.
- Get your air conditioning system ready for summer; consider having it serviced.
- Repair/replace damaged window screens.
- Inspect roofing for damage, leaks, etc.Repair as needed; you may need a professional.
- Take care of any insect problems you may have: Ants, spiders, moths, etc. are all common, and fairly easy to take care of. Keep cobwebs clear, have ant poison handy, make sure all doors are tightly closed, etc.
- Tighten any handles, knobs, racks, etc.Go through the house and inspect anything that could have a loose screw.
- Check all locks and deadbolts on your doors and windows.If anything doesn’t work right, replace.

The kitchen in the urban Indian home is no longer the domain of the cook or the servant alone. With evolving family norms like working couples who prefer to rustle up their own meals and men working from home, kitchen set-up and decor are increasingly occupying a significant place in the field of interior decoration as the kitchen is no longer regarded as a space used merely to cook food but an intimate family space that must necessarily appear inviting and yet be useful and functional.
Formerly a kitchen was supposed to look dull and somber with stainless steel cabinets and fittings. Nowadays however, these are increasingly giving way to warmer metal tones as brass and copper. Even Iron and similar tones are becoming popular.
For smaller kitchens in city apartments, small, compact corner sinks are fast gaining popularity. This is not just a wonderful way to utilize that unused corner in the sink, it is also considered cute and chic.
Wooden accessories including wooden cabinets and counters can transform an ordinary kitchen into one of the sleekest, most elegant spaces in the house. More and more people prefer to accessorize their kitchen with simple yet superb wooden items.
Colorful splash-backs are in this season! Many interior designers and home owners are now choosing to decorate the kitchen with bright, vibrant colors and unleash excitement in the kitchen. Pretty iridescent tiles, marble slabs with interesting patterns and colorful latticed cabinets have become quite a rage with people who regard the kitchen as something more than a place to cook and store.
Kitchen lighting is no longer confined to boring bulbs and overhead lights. With regard to exposed lighting, the artistically inclined are increasingly veering towards light fixtures that are showpieces and marvels in themselves. On the other hand, layered lighting and lighting in hidden spots under shelves and cupboards are also catching the fancy of those with more subtle and understated tastes.
Countertops using black granite or quartz breathe character into the kitchen. Whether left glossy and varnished or with a dull matte finish, such countertops do not fail to infuse the kitchen with immaculate elegance. Black countertops with a matte finish are considered all the more stylish this season.
Open shelves and cabinets, though not quite the norm in Indian kitchens yet, are gradually being given preference by those who own not just pretty kitchens but pretty kitchen paraphernalia as well. Open shelving allows people to display their exotic collections of crockery and other delightful kitchen accessories that, needless to say, have their own special appeal.
Last but not the least, Indian kitchens, like their Western counterparts, are also being transformed into kitchen- cum dining spaces with large kitchen islands and elegant chairs or stools. This concept is especially gaining ground in condominiums and furnished apartments with modular kitchens. Wooden, Metal, marble-top, mahogany-topped, vintage-style, glass-top, or with bar stools- the gamut of kitchen islands is huge. It is only a matter of time before they gain complete acceptance in the urban Indian kitchen.
Keeping a home and its residents safe and secure from antisocial elements has been of utmost concern since time immemorial. For centuries galore, all kinds of ways and means have been devised to safeguard the home.
With soaring crime rates across Indian cities, the issue of home security has assumed humongous importance. All kinds of security apparatuses are now gaining popularity in urban Indian houses or apartments. These include the installation of CCTV cameras, Electronic Intruder Detection Systems, Video Door Phone systems and so on. The traditional system of posting security guards at one’s house gates has also not gone out of fashion.
With metropolitan cities spilling out of their borders, more and more homes are coming up around city suburbs and fringes. While the development of these budding cities, springing next to metropolitans, is taking place at an astonishing speed- it is also true that many of the homes here are situated in remote, far-flung areas, far away from the bustling city centers. This might sound like a boon to many country lovers, yet this makes home security an absolute necessity.
Hiring security guards and keeping watchdogs and alarm systems are the expensive but preferred home security options for those with individual homes.
At the same time, the many multi-facility apartment complexes and condominiums, that are mushrooming all over these developing suburban areas and are gradually becoming a hit with India’s vast middle class, are also equipped with tight security apparatuses. These include the installation of CCTV Cameras and 24*7 Security Guard systems. Security guards do not allow intruders and trespassers to enter the complex while CCTV Cameras ensure that the movements of all suspicious persons get recorded. The full-proof security in these apartment complexes has been one of the reasons for their growing popularity.
Thus the range of home security options is wide and it is up to the discretion of home-owners to choose what they feel is the best and safest for their home!
Traditionally an Indian home was never complete without a courtyard and a vegetable farm. However, with space becoming a much coveted item in urban Indian clusters, gardens are increasingly becoming a rarity in most homes.
At the same time, ardent lovers of gardening are not just investing in cozy country homes located away from the city centres, new age gardening concepts like terrace gardens are also catching the fancy of verdure lovers. As a result, gardening- typically regarded a western hobby- is flowering like never before!
Be it hanging pipe planters on PVC pipes, potted tomato plants, exotic culinary herbs planted in boxes and troughs, rose gardens or traditional garden hedges- gardening comprises a wide gamut of fanciful options. One only needs a dash of imagination and innovation to create wonders with our green friends.
While pipe planters on PVC pipes present an unusual gardening idea, growing potted tomatoes and other vegetables are gradually growing in popularity. Earlier, no Indian household was complete without the humble Tulsi or Basil in the front courtyard. Now again, Basil has found a special place in the kitchen gardens of gardening connoisseurs who have started growing it and other exotic herbs like thyme, sage and mint with great care. Rose gardens and traditional garden hedges call for sprawling gardens and lawns that are uncommon, but not entirely impossible to come across in the homes of the well-heeled.
In this day and age of anxiety and stress, gardening presents a wonderful hobby in which to spend one’s time constructively. As a result, more and more urban Indians are taking it up and thereby, lending fresh dimensions to this evergreen pastime.
