Vijay had a passion to Interior designing and planned to do an Interior designing course. In 2004, he completed his 2-year Interior course and joined Arrital Cuicine in Bangalore. It is a modular Kitchen and interior firm. Later worked for Alpha Interiors in Vijayanagar and then moved to Inside Spaces. His notable 4-year stint was as an interior designer with Hometown where he was an Project Manager for pan-India. Hometown was where he learnt the details of the trade and shaped Vijay as a confident and value adding interior designer. Sunrise Interiors was started in 2011.
Sunrise Interiors works with large players such as HomeCenter to execute projects for them all across India. Habitat Ventures is another big client for Vijay. Apart from the regular clients, Sunrise Interiors has a showroom and experience center in Vijayanagar. Manufacturing facility is in Magadi road and they cater to many small Interior designers as well with factory finished products. The USP of Sunrise is that, they can work on any reasonable budget the get the right interiors at that level. They make complete waterproof kitchens which is quite popular now. Vijay is very flexible and down-to-earth to work with. He does both complete interiors or only certain elements like kitchens & wardrobe.
Talking about the trend, Vijay says that Waterproof Kitchens are hot cakes. Acrylic surfaces, glossy finish and bright colors come close second. What should the client look at when going for interiors.
- Design should not waste the space.
- Tailor made customization – The interior has to suit the clients. For example. the height of the kitchen counter should be aligned to the height of the person who will use it. Height of the bed, wardrobe partitions everything should be easily accessible and not cause pain.
- Aesthetics with uncompromising quality.
Vijay is bold and confident to make claims such as 5-year Free service for his products on any defect and also services wear &tear for a marginal cost. His basic interiors cost starts at 3-3.5 lakhs for 2 bhk and 4-4.5 lakhs for a 3 bhk apartment. Delivery timeline is 45 days or before.
