Mahesh Mane, CEO of Eternal M Creations, says,
It is important to provide an upgrade in the lifestyle while preserving the comfort level of the occupants of the living space.
People are the most important aspects of any design process. We first try to understand the lifestyle and interests of the people before creating a comfortable space for them.
While designing a room for an elderly person who takes daily medicines, we ensure that the medicine cabinet is accessible to the person whenever needed. Also, if a person is fond of reading, we will incorporate a well-placed reading lamp and bookshelf in the design.
