A new store in Mylaporeoffers home automation in addition to premium sanitary ware
Given that the once humble bathroom has now become a luxury escape, more specialists in the department are welcome. That’s possibly why Indulge, a new store located in Mylapore (and not connected to this magazine) promises a one-stop solution for your bathroom, kitchen and other décor needs. The spacious store has options for tiles, bathroom fittings and sanitary ware, as well as unique offerings like home automation. A Vivekanand, the owner of the store, points to the technology that lets you control any gadget in your house—from the TV to the air conditioner and lights —via your phone or iPad. “It is completely wireless,” Vivekanand says proudly. They also stock bathroom fittings from British brand Keuco, available exclusively at Indulge.
What you need
The store has a customer’s lounge where you can visualise your living space with their in-house designer. Brands like Shell, Grohe and Delta for bathroom fittings and Duravit, Jacuzzi, Antoniolupi for sanitary ware, will take care of styling needs. If you are tempted enough to redo your bathroom, Vivekanand, who has spent 22 years in the business, suggests you “opt for contemporary designs and solid colours like beige, black and grey. And highlighters are hot too.” A new addition is the proximity faucet for kitchens. “These faucets function on touch,” he explains. One simply has to touch the faucet to turn it on and off. Another big draw is the rain shower “which gives you the effect of rain while using minimum amount of water.”
Prices start from Rs. 7,000 onwards. Details: 42137002
