What’s the asking price?
In the U.K. kitchens are the focal point of the house.
We love cooking as a family so went for a lavish kitchen. Our bedrooms and living rooms are very modest by comparison.
I see in BD kitchen is still very much a non entity.
In the West, kitchens are a gathering place for family, as the gharwaaley queen of the house calls the kitchen her personal domain and administrative discussion area. This is true for all classes in Western countries. US, UK and EU included. Sometimes (especially nowadays in well-to-do households) kitchens are open to the living room and sport the most expensive equipment in the house (stainless steel custom walk-in fridges, wolf heavy-duty cooktops etc.)
In the subcontinent, kitchen is the domain of the bais, housemaids, cooks and khansamas. Kitchens barely have any importance in the East and sport the most basic of equipment. As upper middle class Bangladeshi wives start working outside the house, this is rapidly changing, even in Bangladesh, as you can see above.
Wives and mothers in Bangladesh sometimes do labor in them more than supervisory style (especially on special occasions e.g. Eid, Diwali, Pujas, Shab-e-Baraat etc.), and especially if the family is of modest means or the women of the family care about the quality of khaana being served.
The two scenarios are wholly different.
Tbh you're right & I know this too - but there is a time for everything and I believe this is the right time for me, double the money in 10 years may not benefit me as much.
Exactly. Those of us who live in the West have our own property goals here.
