The outcome of staying in a 1 BHK home is as satisfying as staying in a 2-3 BHK flat. The only thing that matters is the comfort of space for your family. Here are few guidelines to choose the right home for yourself.

In today’s world, Indian families are divided into two broad buckets – the joint family and the nuclear family. Though the joint family system is made up of more than just one family, there tends to be a high degree of overlap between these units. Members of individual families engage in a lot of inter-unit socializing, and there are a lot of shared responsibilities related to children and elders involved. If you belong to a joint family and firmly believe in the related values that you have grown up with, a larger home is definitely the ideal choice for you.

It often happens that a husband and wife, both earning applying for a housing loan, find themselves in a dilemma put forth by the brokers that, why to buy a 1 BHK flat when they can afford more.’ However, the couple must make a decision based on the number of children they intend to have or whether their financial tendencies are bound to increase in the future.

Another aspect that highly influences the size of the home is the family’s financial planning and future aspirations. Do they plan to travel? Would their kids stay at the same house after they grow up? Or most importantly, what are their retirement plans. Financial preparation for such plans will have to start early on and it will affect the planning of the house as well.

There are also other factors to take into consideration while deciding on what size of flat to take. A larger flat definitely offers more living space and therefore convenience. However, apart from the higher capital cost, it also entails more effort and expense to maintain the household regularly. But a young couple can’t afford the help for the maintenance of an entire house.

A flat should be chosen on the basis of current requirements and financial ability – ‘right-sizing’ is definitely an operative concept from the reports of real estate. A larger flat should ideally be the result of upgrading rather than initial choice since upgrading is always an option for people with upward mobility and upward income.
