Newly Married! Moved out of home!So I went to Super Saravana Stores!
Setting up a new house can seem daunting at first. What items must be included on the list? What should the budget be? Leave your friends and family in awe by making a beautiful home in a short span of time at affordable prices. How about planning to host a lunch one week after getting married? Does that sound impossible? These were the questions running through my mind when my husband and I took that first step.
Walking into Saravana Stores made me realise that there must be so many people like us with these very questions on their mind. So here’s my checklist!
Make a List
Making a list of items you need with a budget estimate is a good starting point. Categorise requirements based on basic needs, good-to-have items and a luxury items. Identify such requirements for the kitchen, dining, living room, bedroom and bathroom. Here is what was on my mind.
|Room||Name of Item||Basic, good-to-have, luxury||Budget Rs.||Notes|
|Bedroom||Cupboards – 3||Basic||2500 x 3 = 7500||Brown|
Your basic requirements may include items such as pots, pans, knives, ladles, plates, bowls, glasses and spoons. Small things you may not have planned include water dispensers, vegetable peelers and small storage units. Saravana Stores has a separate section for kitchen utility items with a wide selection of such needs. Do you want your items to be colour-coordinated? These stores will have them for you. I was really spoilt for choice!
They have a readily available package of essential kitchen and dining items making it easier for you to sort out your kitchen and dining needs. Order the package and be ready to throw a party as soon as you move! Be sure to serve your guests Kumbakonam Degree Coffee made using their brass coffee filters! Make flavoursome dishes using their peppermill. Get a spice rack to store all your favourite spices in a handy manner. Their storage containers come in every size and colour to make sure your store room or pantry looks good while keeping your food safe and fresh! Going eco-friendly? Choose from a range of wooden or metal items from vessels, ladles and containers.
Purchasing appliances may seem tricky. In some instances, a bigger budget may enable you to buy long-lasting items. In other cases, you may want to purchase a wallet-friendly option. Identifying your basic needs to be met and the appliances of your choice is a good starting point. Washing machines, iron, mixers, grinders, air-conditioners and television sets are essentials. If you have not decided your brand of choice and are unsure of the features, visit the store for a wide variety of brands. I found brands here that were not well known but came with the same features as some of the bigger brands and it helped us save a lot of money.Their staff will guide you through the different features including warranty and service options offered by various brands. We picked and chose what we wanted for our house and they surprised us by telling us they will deliver.
Furniture is their forte. Whether it was our dining area, living room or bedroom, they had every imaginable size to suit our new home. Their affordable furniture range will suit decors of simple andelegant homes to snazzy and modern looks. Their MDF furniture is affordable yet provides the look and feel of wood. To our surprise they take custom orders too.
Now that the major items are off your list, lets visit another area meant for utilities. Plastic buckets, mugs, shower caddies, soap dispensers, batteries, torches, LED lamps, hangers, drying rack, detergent cases, alarm clocks, brooms, mops, step stools, dust pans, towels, dustbins…phew! Would you believe they have all? Their affordable utilities range makes it easy for you to pick and choose sizes and colours of your preference.
Setting up our home has never been this easy, affordable and convenient. I am so glad I decided to walk into Saravana Stores and discovered their wide range of products! We can sleep in peace on our new mattress knowing we got the best value for money, quality products and very informative customer service.
