‘L’ is a perfect shape for a small kitchen. Everything fits well into the shape leaving sufficient space for the free movement too. The only thing is that we have to plan it well to make it organized and comfortable. Drawers, long cabinets, open shelves… make the optimum use of the space because every inch matters in a small kitchen. Give special attention to the corner. Corner takes up lots of space and usually the corner cabinets are of no use. It is advisable to use special fittings for the corner so that the space is well utilized.
It needs lots of skill and courage to have an integrated space with kitchen exposed to the guests. Since there is no place for hiding, the kitchen should be beautifully organized and elegantly chic. Here a central island separates the kitchen from the living room. The island serves as the preparation area and also as the breakfast table for quick breakfast or informal meals. The space has been visually integrated by having a common floor and walls. But still each of the integrated space has maintained its unique identity.

Open shelves of different sizes, drawers, long and short cabinets, the corner cabinet, well… The designer knows how to transform a small kitchen into a unique atmosphere for a pleasure experience. Elegant wooden cabinets complement the beautiful and unique tiles used on the wall.

Undoubtedly it is a stylish modern kitchen.
The kitchen is quite a happening place. Cooking, chopping, cutting, washing, chatting… lots of activities go on here daily. The material used to build a kitchen should have some essential qualities.
