One of the best things about living in a collectivist society is that we always have the option of not being alone. As Bangladeshis, we often tend to keep our families close, and our friends and extended families closer. However, long gone are the days of our previous one or two generations, and with globalization has come our acceptance of people’s need of privacy – even if it is around our closest ones. When buying a flat in Dhaka city, for instance, one would be rightly expected to expect the home to have at least three bedrooms, lest their guests feel unwelcome. With this new tradition of having a separate room especially for your guests comes the opportunity of being able to decorate and customize it to the needs of the ones you love, and make them feel special.
