  • Modern kitchens : Modern may refer to present time or 21st century, the definition may vary, but when we say Modern Kitchen Designs, the first image that pops up in our mind is that of a    frameless cabinet with a sleek and basic hardware, strong horizontal or straight lines with the natural beauty of the material used in the manufacturing of the kitchen, shining through.
  • Traditional kitchens: Traditional kitchens are usually defined by the minute details they hold. These details can include arches, corbels, decorative moldings with natural wood and antique finish. 
  • Contemporary Kitchens: Contemporary kitchens are very polished and sleek in design, but where a Modern Kitchen celebrates grid and structure, a contemporary kitchen is generally more easy-    going and playful in terms of form and finish.
  • Transitional Kitchens: Transitional kitchens act as a brilliant moderator. With the real warmth and embrace of traditional design and the neat, simple and clear lines of contemporary design, transitional kitchens exhibit harmony and balance. Because they offer a great deal of flexibility, they are the perfect choice for people whose taste spans both.
  • Cottage Kitchens: Happy, warm and ingenuous, a cottage kitchen goes back to simpler days and invokes a sense of carefree and easy living. Muted colors, wooden floors, soft hued curtains and colorful accents will infuse your kitchen with cozy cottage comfort.
  • Eclectic kitchens: Are you a rebel who prefers a style which is different from the rest? It’s your kitchen, mix, match and season everything with a dash of boldness to get that desired distinct kitchen style. Get inspired from both modern and rustic styles, blend them with a well-traveled flair to get that eclectic kitchen of your dreams.

  • Splash some colors on those spoons:

Bring out those old wooden spoons from the cabinet and dip dye them with the choice of your color. If you think black and white is worth the fight, go for those colors and if you are fond of vibrant colors, close your eyes and go for neon hues. But remember to color just the handles.

  • Polka Dot Refrigerator Art:

The front door looks a little old but the fridge is working fine. Is that your fridge I am talking about? Well, you don’t have to repaint the entire fridge to remodel it. Just get hold of some contact paper.  Circle punch it, stick it on your fridge door and don’t forget to add some funky looking magnets to improve the look of your fridge. The pop of color in your kitchen will look awesome.

  • Stenciled Kitchen Towels:

Turn plain kitchen towels into funky piece of art. Here’s how. Just take a one-colored kitchen towel, cut design of your choice on a piece of hard paper. We recommend you to use hard paper over regular ones to prevent bleeding of paint into the towel. Then dip your paintbrush into your favorite fabric paint and paint the open areas. Pull the paper away and let the paint dry. Bam! Your DIY is ready for use.

2. Pick Soft-toned Paints: Lighter colored paints play a prime role in making a small space appear bigger and inviting. Experts suggest painting walls with soft hues like beige, cream or off-white to reflect the natural light in a room.

3. Mix Ambient and Natural Lighting: Create an open feel by keeping room for a window space in your kitchen. Window makes way for natural daylight thus visually expanding the space. Choose task and ambient lighting to give you the same effect at night.

The Kitchen Anxiety

“Just Fry”
“Just Microwave on high for 1 minute”
“Ready in just 2 minutes”
“Add boiling water and ready in 3 minutes”

Flooded with Ready To Eats?

The Indian home has been flooded with ready to eat food options and these have become the happy choice of many households. Given the hectic lifestyles and ‘so much to do in such little time’ becoming the repertoire of many homes, people are resorting to ready foods. Does that mean the kitchen loses its importance amongst the rooms in your home?

THE KITCHEN ANXIETY

Doesn’t seem so! The kitchen still rules and is the most important part of any Indian home. It is that part of your home where you need to be in order to prepare the ‘ready to cook’ food or the ‘just fry’ pakoras! The kitchen is still the place for your favourite chai or your steaming idlis. So the kitchen retains its place as the star of the Indian home and is shown off to visitors with great pride. Here is where the Modular Kitchen has suddenly become the must have in the Interior Design plan for your house. The need of the hour is a kitchen with an international design yet functionalities that are suited to Indian homes. Doing up a kitchen is a tough call, because living without a kitchen for even 1 day is a bit difficult for most foodies!
