Your nameplate is the primary indicator that singularises your home, giving it its identity...

Modelled strictly according to the individual tastes of the homeowners, the nameplate is perhaps the most unique and personalised item of a household. It is also the most special gift that can be given.

Your nameplate could be in the form of a plaque put next to your entrance, on the door or the door itself! A very trendy way of announcing your home is to paint your door in a riot of colours and scratch your family name or the names of the inmates on it.

Basics: The script or ‘lettering style’ is the main thing here – it could be decorative, block style or even a stylistic script – English written in a Hindi style with a line above. Language is another factor to be considered although most nameplates are in English.

Design Factors: Whether you prefer a traditional look or something more contemporary, it is always advisable to have your nameplate custom-made to your requirement. Right from the name suggestion - whether the couple’s names itself, the family name, names of the individual members, to names of flowers or the seasons; or even inspired from your natural surroundings; your nameplate goes on to herald the essence that your home sets out to achieve. Remember, your nameplate has to complement the home within – it cannot be at a totally different design tangent altogether.

Ultimately it your identity that has to be established. The best part about nameplates is that there are no fixed rules – it is up to you! Design it as uniquely as possible!!
