However, not many articles speak about the amenities 3 BHK flat must have. The facilities that a builder must incorporate in and around a 3BHK is often neglected.
In this article, we have listed some amenities that ought to be in a 3BHK to make look fab from drab. We hope that this article will give you insight into the industry.
1. Children’s play area
If you do not have children, you might disagree with this point. It might come off as something totally irrelevant to you. But for someone with children will find it necessary. Because it is unhealthy for children to live in a house where he/she doesn’t have a place to play Also, many parents do not have the time, energy or the source to take their children to a different playground altogether. So, a children’s play area is a must amenity to have, considering the importance of physical activity on the body and mind of a child.
2. Rainwater harvesting
Most top builders are providing this facility in their housing projects nowadays. But, it is still very much ignored in small scale projects or projects in smaller cities. It may be primarily because the impact of water shortage is yet to hit in those places. Rainwater harvesting is not only a great way to conserve water, but it also avoids flooding during the monsoons. Reused water is always good for the environment.
3. Gym/Sports Area/Fitness Room
Much like children, adults need exercise and refreshment as well. According to research, most people over 30 quit exercising because of lack of time. So, it is important for housing societies to have a designated gym and fitness area.
4. Solar panels
The importance of solar energy cannot be emphasized enough. However, not many residential buildings in India have solar panel installations. But if we consider the fact of electricity shortage, opting for solar energy is a smart choice. And if you are paying half of your life’s income to buy a house, you deserve to have an alternative source of electricity. Maybe, make it even primary.
5. Common room
It is assumed that people living in apartments are not social. But a great way to curb this is by having a community room. Such a place helps all the members to come together for various social events. Libraries, movie theaters, clubhouses etc. are great examples of common rooms.
Booking a 3 BHK flat is not a big deal. But finding the perfect one can be really tough and cheeky, especially in a metro city like Bangalore.
