For us Indians nothing can be more alluring than a comfortable and well organized kitchen in our homes. If kitchen has the space for two or more people to work together then it surely is a boon. U-shaped kitchen perfectly fits into the kind of kitchen we are talking about. Even in small space, it creates ample storage space to keep the kitchen organised and still has sufficient space in the middle for the family to work together. Have a look at these 7 comfortable U-shaped kitchens and get some inspiration for your home.
It’s a perfectly designed kitchen in the classic combination of wooden and white. Handle-free cabinets and wooden floor look modern and chic. The beauty of the wall cabinets is in the bend and curve it takes while moving along the wall and spotlights focused on them. What receive the maximum admiration from us are the large window and three pots of green plants. It’s refreshingly amazing!
Usually in a U-shaped kitchen, gas stove has a fix spot in the lower part of the platform that forms U. But you can always break from the tradition. Use the long platform for cooking if you find it comfortable. After all it’s your kitchen so it will follow your rules. You can even use unconventional handles on the cabinets and bring in your free spirit even in the kitchen.
Accept it or deny it, the fact is that we Indians love wooden furniture. Warmth and charm of wood had always attracted us. If you are choosing wood in its natural colour and texture, just try to be as natural and minimalist as possible.
A thoughtfully deigned small kitchen can hold all the kitchen amenities without making it look cramped. Now it is up to your imagination to make it beautiful! Judicious use of traditional colours on the walls and furniture, funky tiles, hanging ceiling and amazing light; together they make it a magical space.
The classic combination of black and white all over the kitchen is making it beautiful. The trick with small space is to keep it simple and minimalist. It will look spacious and comfortable. With floor, middle, wall and long cabinets, this will surely be a convenient kitchen to cook for the family.
Think differently and play with colours and lights to make the kitchen shine. Cream for the floor cabinets and maroon on the wall with LED lights running all around the kitchen below the wall cabinet is enhancing the beauty quotient of the kitchen.
When the space is small and requirement for storage is more, then move the platform from one side and make it U-shaped kitchen with a long cabinet on the side. Show your Indian love for colours to make it a small vibrant kitchen where cooking will be fun.
