What Affects the 3BHK Interior Design Cost?

The cost depends on several factors like location, materials used, unique requirements and scope of work

To understand how much you would have to shell out to design your 3BHK apartment, you first need to identify the factors that will affect the cost.

  1. Location: Interior design cost will be higher in cities like Mumbai compared to smaller towns like Pune due to higher real estate prices and costs of materials and services in bigger cities
  2. Size: The larger the 3BHK, the higher the cost of designing it.  
  3. Valuation: In certain cases, the cost of the interior design might be directly proportional to the cost per sq. ft. of the property. So, the greater the cost of your apartment, the higher might be the interior design cost
  4. Scope of Design: Do you want to get the interiors done for your entire home? Or do you just want a kitchen design? The scope will determine the overall cost.
  5. Renovation vs New Property: The interior design cost for a renovation might be than a new property if there are a lot of civil changes and repair work involved
  6. Materials: Depending on the type of materials and finishes you choose for your cabinets, furniture and wardrobes, your 3BHK interior design cost can go up or down.
