Let's face it, we Indians are social people. We like to invite friends home for a meal, and we offer a cup of coffee or tea to everyone who visits our home. These are customs that should be passed on from one generation to the next. And, to do so, everything starts with the kitchen, the favourite room of our homes and a magical place where the best things happen.
These kitchens, which are all designed by experts, have qualities that make them perfect.
This compact L-shaped kitchen has a couple of low cabinets as well as one mounted on the wall. In a small kitchen, every inch must be carefully planned to get the most from the limited space. Corner cabinets are often impractical as they take up a lot of space and are not easy to use. However, with special fittings, they can be made more accessible and efficient to optimize the space.
When a kitchen is integrated with the social area, it is wide open and can be seen by our guests. A central island, which visually separates the kitchen from the living room is ideal in such cases. The island can be used not only as a preparation area, but also as a bar to eat – ideal for a quick breakfast or snack. In this example, the entire space has been visually integrated to make the most of it, but care has been taken to ensure a minimum independence between the different areas.

In the market, there are plenty of materials suitable for kitchens. However, it’s advisable to consult an expert to understand which ones will best suit your design.
