People in Hyderabad city are spending more on curtains. And this is on the rise and it will continue, says Ankit Goyal of Decor World.

It is a high-end furnishing store, introducing the best in curtains. The store will be formally inaugurated at Road No 12, Banjara Hills on 15th April.
To avail of experience centre services, a customer has to book a slot along with their architect/ interior designer. Where they can feel, touch, explore, discuss and finalise their selection with lunch. With the help of technology, they can even see how curtains look in their house.
The time slot is entirely given to them and no other customer is entertained during that time slot. It is more of an engaging shopping experience than merely going and buying a catalogue. The experience centre is uniquely designed by spending well over a crore rupees.
Interacting with the media on Wednesday, the city’s one of the top five furnishing experts, Ankit Goyal said our curtains are engaging ones. They tell your stories. The curtains are the new focus in home decor. The industry is going towards luxury in order to fulfil customers’ preferences. Consumers are focusing on budgeting for curtains.
