Something hidden, something partially visible and the something in open; this stylishly modern kitchen has best of all the worlds. It’s customized to make life easy and comfortable in the kitchen. Even the floor cabinet has customized glass doors to peep and find what you are looking for even without opening the door. And then how can we miss the sleek collapsible breakfast bar right in the middle of the kitchen.
It’s a fact that no matter how much you have; still there will always be need for more storage space. It is also essential to have a well ventilated kitchen for comfortable working. Build long cabinets or stretch the wall cabinets, but if there is a provision for windows, leave it open. This is one move which you will never regret. The view and fresh air will liberate you from the stress of chores.
If you can design your kitchen without any twist and turns, do it. You will avoid the challenge of dressing up the tricky corners. Corner cabinets are cumbersome to use. Usually the space goes waste or cost more to make it comfortably useable.
It’s impossible to avoid a corner in L or U shaped kitchen which is very common in Indian homes. You can order a corner cabinet from market or show some creativity and design it differently and make it innovative and aesthetically beautiful.
For the floor cabinets, we highly recommend and suggest you to go for drawers instead of door cabinets. Drawers are easy to use and are designed to hold anything. With just a pull even the things almost hidden behind becomes visible and easy to take out.
Along with closed cabinets, try installing a few open shelves on the wall. They are more comfortable than the closed ones since everything stored there is visible and easy to find even for your guests. The only concern is dust and dirt that will settle on it. Well then… use it to keep the stuffs you use on the daily basis. Problem solved!
For those who prefer to have closed wall cabinets, all we can suggest you is to have a lift up doors installed instead of normal doors. The horizontal cabinets with lift up door are convenient to use and you can use it without having to step in or out. With just one lift all you are looking for is open for you.
In modern homes, multi-purpose furniture is a boon, especially in a small kitchen. Instead of a normal wall cabinet, design a trendy one which can open to become a breakfast bar of your kitchen. It is advisable to keep the wall cabinet shallow so that it forms a single row which is comfortable to use.
Handle-free cabinetry, smooth finish, pull up drawers, chic basket drawers and long wall cupboards and of course soothing colour combination; it’s all you need to make it a perfectly comfortable kitchen. With a gentle push and pull use all the cabinets conveniently and efficiently.
