Constraints of space and affordability have always troubled urban dwellers to negotiate and settle for smaller living spaces. But how does one accommodate for future growth in size of family and changing lifestyles...?
It’s not that small houses are bad; in fact, as cited in some of our earlier posts, they are more affordable and allow ease of maintenance too. But smaller the space, the more difficult if grows with passage of time, like the addition of family members, pets and lifestyle gadgets.

Minimum Requirement Of 3 Bedroom House Plans Indian Style
Most people today go for smaller house plans, mostly so in the urban settings. And there are a few with growing families, like children in their teens or larger family sizes who opt for 3BHK houses or larger. So we tried to analyze the basic requirements of an average Indian family wanting to build a home in the city.
- The Living Room - A must, this space used to be compromised for a bedroom cum living room functionality. But if you are planning to use it as an entertainment room too, and accommodating flexible timings of various members of your family from multiple age groups, such a functionality may not be convenient for all in the long run. Hence having a separate living room is ideal and advisable.
- The kitchen - A space sacrosanct for the Indian family, the kitchen of today has morphed into a space for casual family discussions. So away goes the traditional look and in comes kitchen wall art with potted plants hanging along window side and lots of green! And there could be space enough for the lady of the house to cuddle up with her favorite book at one corner while the meal is getting ready!
- The Children's Bedrooms - Respecting the individuality of your children, a proper space for each one of them is of importance today. So if you have more than one child, keeping 2 bedrooms might be of best interest to you. Invariably, one of these rooms can be used for any guests or senior members of your family.
- The Master Bedroom - Probably one of the coolest places in the world for you, this is the room of your dreams. Wrapped in the colors of your liking, the master bedroom is your personal statement and the space of your art. It must be exactly that way you always expected it to be, the ultimate space to relax and unwind.
- The Other Spaces - Have you ever thought of having a small study in your home? And growing number of home investors are coming for new spaces like a small bar, a library under the staircase, a terrace garden with patio, and an extra bedroom! So if you have similar ideas, plan ahead.
In our drive for optimization of everything, from our time to our money, we have come to a stage where every square inch matters. This is the driving force behind the architecture and design of today's modern homes - they offer inhabitants a wide utility with great spaces for entertainment and access to the outside!
