The wooden choice-Icon Homz

When it comes to flooring, we are floored with the choices available in the market. From granite to tiles to wood; we have a plethora to choose from each of these options too. However, nothing matches the timeless classic appeal of wood. Be it a contemporary décor or a traditional one, wood suits every taste.

A lot of us back out from using wooden flooring considering the cost factor. Yet, when you evaluate the pros that come with wooden flooring, the cost doesn’t seem so high. These are fairly easy to maintain, so can be an ideal option for even high traffic areas in the house.




One can go in for solid wood flooring or engineered wood flooring depending upon individual taste and of course the budget. The primary difference between the two apart from the cost factor-engineered wood is less expensive than solid wood ones- is that engineered wood is basically layers of wood pressed together to form a plank which can be then installed even over existing tiles.

Since wood has the characteristic to expand and contract with temperature fluctuations, care must be taken during installation to account for these.

One can go in for any kind of finish making wooden flooring a truly flexible option. They can also be sanded and re-furnished to restore its shine and glory.

So, the next time you think of floors, just make the wooden choice!

We build homes; not just houses – ICON Homz.

What are the things that go into building an ICON home? Is it just a mere house with four walls and a ceiling? A house can be a home only when warmth, care and thoughtfulness are added to it. At ICON Homz, we strive to do just this – to ingest meaning and life into our buildings; to erect happy and comfortable homes for our customers.

So what exactly goes into making the ICON home?

Firstly, we pay attention to every tiny detail. A lot of thought goes into the design of the house itself to ensure that space is effectively optimized, eliminating unnecessary and unusable spaces. At the same time, we strive to bring in plenty of natural sunlight and fresh air into each home to add warmth and cheer and try to do away with dark and dingy corners.

Secondly, we always use superior quality construction material. All fittings and work is done by experienced workmen to maintain high quality standards. Knowing that lead can be toxic, we use lead free paints – this will safeguard the health of not only the customer but also our extended family of builders, painters and masons.

All homes are made child friendly – paying special attention to electrical wiring and switches. Plenty of open space is planned so that home owners can enjoy the greenery and indulge in fitness activities. The best amenities are provided coupled with high security. Back-up power is always available during power outages.

We also incorporate the latest designs inour projects –for example, the ICON Sanctuary homes are American styled premium villas. We place ourselves in the shoes of the customer – we try and understand their needs and incorporate them while designing the layout and building plan.

Thus at ICON Homz, every home is an iconic treasure; an invaluable asset with comfort and luxury inter-woven into the fabric of the building!

To Be in a suburb or Not To Be – that is the question! – Icon Homz

There have been several debates on whether one should buy a house or rent it.  Similarly, people have been measuring the pros and cons of buying an apartment versus buying a villa.  The next major Hamlet-like question that one is faced with today is – to live in a suburb or in the city center? Let us weigh the pros and cons.

If you need a quiet, ‘green’ and relaxed atmosphere, head to the suburbs.  You can be part of nature and live amidst greenery.  At the same time, you will still be connected to the city’s happening places.  A 20-minute drive (or even less) will take you to the nearest mall, or to a health facility.  And more importantly, if you have an office around the Outer Ring Road, you will be a short drive from your work place.    You will not have to wade through the city’s bumper-to-bumper, crawling traffic to reach your office.  Also, many reputed schools and internationals schools have built sprawling campuses around the suburbs.  Hence, your children too will have a shorter commute to their schools and back home.

Affordability is another major factor to be considered.  Vast, free spaces within the heart of the city are very few.  Even if you were able to locate one such piece of land, you will have to pay through the roof!  And despite the huge premium, you will still be faced with high levels of air and noise pollution.

So, buying a house in the suburbs will definitely be like a breath of fresh air.  You can have spacious homes, possibly with a lawn and a kitchen garden.  The pet that you so wanted to have but could not due to lack of space, could now be a welcome addition to your family!     Go ahead, and think SUBURB!
