| Topic: Approx estimate for interior design.
I recently purchased a 2 BHK in Bangalore, the carpet area of the apartment should be around 900 sqft.
I am completely new to interior designing and this is my first home. Although I approached a bunch of interior designers to take up the complete job, their designs are not something that I have come to like - they're quite generic like most homes.
Having seen some designs on the internet, I am looking for a vintage/rustic American/British home styles. All white interiors/deco painted etc however I am not aware how to go about and implementing this, there are a bunch of interior designers who have done the designs I am looking for however I still need some clarification and sense of direction and understanding since I am going to be spending a lot of money.
I am including photos of some examples in the attachments just to give the readers of this post an idea as to what I am looking for.
I want to know what kind of wood am I supposed to be using to achieve such a design. I am looking for a cohesive design throughout my whole home - kitchen, wardrobes for both bedrooms, bathroom cupboard (with attached mirror), showcase, puja room etc.
Prices of the wood (what brand and per sq.ft)
I believe this is a deco paint finish, however I am told deco paint is not advised since it can be hard to clean and maintain however I am still leaning towards such a design simply for its looks. I have also been told I can achieve this with laminate, is this true?
Any other suggestions etc would be more than welcome. Hoping some doubts will get cleared. Thank you.

A quick update since I forgot to post this in the main thread and am unable to edit it.
My budget is about 5 lakh to achieve this design, is it feasible?
I also want to put in wooden flooring for both the bedrooms. What kind should I go for and should I lay it down before I start interior work or after?
As for false ceiling, is it advised to do? If yes, what would be the cost?

1. The images you have attached are high end finishes- will definitely cost more than 5 Lakhs, if you want to maintain that theme throughout the house.
2. Duco finish definitely looks good( i am assuming you mean Duco when you say deco...i could be wrong though), but is definitely difficult to maintain.
3. Wooden flooring is laid at the last after all interior work is done -easy to lay and is done quickly. There is however a large variety of wooden flooring options. Choose with care. Range starts from 60Rs/sft to 500Rs/sft. Don't go for cheap laminate options.
4. False ceiling definitely adds some beauty if done well.
Your requirements are quite nice, but the budget will need to be raised. I really don't think you can do this in 5Lakhs. I understand you want wooden flooring, but the main cost is also flooring, are you looking for vitrified or marble ? What kind of paint and wall finishes ?Modular kitchen or normal kitchen. All these add to costs.
Hope i have not confused you :) Good luck. You can contact in case of any doubts.
