Welcome to Home Octave!
We are passionate about our home and love sharing everything needed about it!
Think about the last time you googled something about your home.
Apart from the “Best Washing Machines” or “Top 10 induction stoves”, there is very little to no useful information for us Indians.
This sheer lack of great information prompted us to start this website, to start sharing what we love about our home and give you tips and tricks to make your living space into a comfortable home.
We believe there are eight aspects of your home that need improvement, modification or just the occasional update.
We call them Octaves!
Let’s face it! Your home is not what it was 5 years ago.
You went from a few gadgets at home, that was shared by everyone, to so many gadgets that you don’t even know how many your house has!
(Try counting just for fun! I’m sure you can’t remember all of them!)
The lack of good content on the internet to manage the technology in your home, especially for India, is quite surprising!
Say you’re looking for a tutorial about how to connect Alexa to your home security system.
It’s probably after you looked at 10 videos, you realize that it’s meant only for America, and you are left wondering why it’s so hard to do something so simple!
We’ve been in your shoes too!
That’s why our curated content for the Indian homes answers all questions for home tech – from the best Wi-Fi enabled smart Washing Machines, to how you can save a few hundred bucks on that electricity bill every month.
Are you a minimalist?
If you are, you might think home décor isn’t for you right? Wrong.
Home décor is for everyone – the stay at home mom who loves the classic paintings on the wall, to the young adult who wants simple but useful décor that doesn’t clutter.
Our Indian inspired ideas are for all Indian homes, of all sizes and cultures.
We try and find the best, modern, clean and affordable options – that can impress your guests, and inspire your creativity!

Constructing your home from scratch? Great!
We also have recommendations from the cheapest wooden flooring, to the most premium jacuzzi, so you can enjoy those winter Sundays.
Home Improvement is any product or service that increases your home’s usability, efficiency and ease of living.

Likewise, you want to drill a hole through laminated plywood, or change your curtain rods to something more modern, where do you find the answers to these questions?
With so little information available online for us Indians, our goal is to answer every question possible.
This is where the magic happens!
