Give your abode a 360° makeover with ceramic & pottery handicrafts
City life has confined us to limited spaces. Gone are those days when we would call a sprawling, all-side open house out homes.
I mean there are few lucky ones who have the privilege of owning a space with gardens all around and a terrace to look upon the horizon. But most of us have crawled ourselves into city apartments which urgently need a helping of aesthetic appeal.
This post is all about giving you ideas for shopping for your city abode. Let’s see a few places where you can go shopping for ceramics, potteries, plants and interior decoration in Delhi.
MALVIYA NAGAR – Hauz Rani Pottery & Ceramic Market
Just a couple of steps ahead of Malviya Nagar Metro Station, will bring you to a bevy of shops offering glazed ceramic products for your home, kitchen and garden.
Here, you can find beautiful and a huge variety of planters of different sizes for your indoor plants as well as for your balcony or garden. Sizes range from mini planters for your table top to large pots for your driveway.
You can give your kitchen a complete makeover with ceramic cookwares, serveware and tableware. They have ceramic glazed dinner plates, quarter plates, bowls, soup bowls with soup spoons, serving pots with lids, salt & pepper shakers, trays, rice plates, traditional tea cups, mugs and many more.
