Balconies of Residential Flats: Holding out the charm

When you go to see the residential apartments, whether constructed or under construction or even when these are still on the paper, one of the things which you would definitely notice is the balconies provided in the unit. A balcony can be considered as an open area which has a ceiling but may not be having the wall on at least one side. It is a part of the house and can be reached only from the inside of the home. Balconies hold special attraction for the home buyers as these provide the open avenues for the residents to sit out in the open spaces and in the fresh air and have an uninterrupted view of the surroundings.


For the real-estate projects such as SRS Royal Hills Faridabad, the creation of large sit-out areas in the balconies can be the unique selling proposition of the project. When people venture out to look for properties, the number of balconies provided for, the size of these balconies and the orientation or direction of the different balconies are some of the main points which are looked into. Most of the projects provide balconies with bedrooms and the living rooms. Some might even provide one with the kitchen or the dining hall. Further, there are a fixed number of balconies provided in each unit of the project, depending on the area of the unit and the number of BHK units in a living area. A particular number of balconies form an essential part of the home for good living purposes. Care is taken to provide for optimal number of balconies so as to ensure that the space is optimally utilised and there is sufficient provision for space and ventilation.


The direction of the balconies is also looked into by the buyers who want to live in units which have balconies opening up to present a view of their liking. The direction also determines the extent of sunlight which will be received by the balcony. However, it is the size of the balcony which holds special attraction. More space means that it can be used in more, different ways. You can use it for sitting out, enjoying your evenings or performing yoga routines in morning. These can even be used for putting some plants and vegetating it with greenery. The width and the length of balconies both are of significance when deciding on the right size of the balconies. Projects developers such as SRS Royal Hills, who pay special attention to this element, pay attention to the width along with the length of the balconies while developing their construction plans.

Recreational centers in New Generation Housing Societies

There were times, when there were not many flats developed, or if there were some, these were essentially low-rise flats and too few in numbers to be noticeable, In fact, these were the residential units which used to amaze us since the concept in close-packed, high-density living was not much fanciful and people were not usually inclined to living in that since there was seemingly less privacy living next door to some other family. But, changes are necessitated by galloping speed of population increase and planners and urban developers were left with no alternative but to allow high-rise buildings to be developed on the flats-based housing units.
The modern societies such as the BPTP Princess Park are built around the concepts of modern living which also means that the residents have all such amenities within the secure and safe society premises which would promote a more inclusive community based living with international standards of living. Many parameters lead to the development of this type of living, one of which is the recreational centre, which finds a place in most of the modern societies.


A recreational centre is the one which is expected to re-energize you, help you in shedding the lethargy, brings about a positive change, a feeling of freshness and rids you of the agonies and tensions. Since the center would be used by all the residents, of all demographic profiles, it shall ideally be having much for everyone to recreate, entertain, refresh and relax. So, the children can engage in a number of indoor games and sports. The young can go for the sporting and gymnasium activities such as weight training, playing pool and a number of other sports. Sports not only keep you fit and healthy but also help in character and personality development, so essential for making good citizens and human beings. The elder and the aged people also get the platform to come together for a friendly chat. The society parks can even be used for holding functions and parties.

By providing the recreation centres the modern societies clearly understand the need of recreation for the people. Since there may not be these facilities available in a newly developing area, outside of the society, these are planned to be included inside the society. for the builders, these amenities become important to provide since the people might otherwise have the problem in residing in these units which would affect their sales. So, more comprehensive and inclusive plans are developed in order to make it worthwhile to live in these societies such as BPTP Princess Park Faridabad and recreational facilities are an important part of these plans.
