10 Kitchen Ideas For Indian Homes
Wednesday, November 22, 2017
Every homeowner wants a kitchen that is convenient to work in and striking to look at. If a kitchen is inviting and beautiful, the family will feel like spending more time in there together. Modular kitchens offer the perfect mix of utility and visual appeal, which is why they are so popular. Modular kitchens allow you to choose a design that suits the needs of an Indian household – keeping factors like space, comfort, water-proofing, storage, etc., in mind.
Wood brings natural warmth and elegance into any space. Wood-finished cabinets are functional and look good at the same time, and you can use natural stone countertops to create a contrast. Hanging cabinets are another unique and stylish way of adding wood to a modular kitchen.
Clean lines and a neat design help the space look uncluttered and make it easier to maintain. Sleek’s Stylus modular units feature sophisticated long PU shutters for a clean look and backless base cabinets that are easy to maintain.
Round wooden knobs made for drawers, a wooden counter, and cabinets in a subtle colour like beige work well to lend a vintage charm to any kitchen. You can also add a few decorative pieces in keeping with the décor theme to personalise the space.
Indian styles feature a certain amount of grandeur. Bring this to your kitchen with cabinets in black, navy, or similar dark hues and golden drawer handles. A beautifully patterned rug can also do the trick. However, remember that this style works best in bigger spaces and cooler climates.
An L-shaped modular kitchen is ideal for modern Indian homes. This design gives you ample space to work while your appliances are arranged at one side. You can customise it with patterns and colours on walls and cabinets.
Opt for wooden flooring, open shelving and a marble countertop in your U-shaped modular kitchen. A big pendant light in the middle shines beautifully off steel appliances and utensils on the countertop. Sleek’s Bling kitchens incorporate open shelves and cabinets in a contemporary design.
You can use colours to make a small kitchen look bigger. Opt for a white kitchen with lots of open shelves as lighter colours reflect more light and make smaller spaces more inviting. Cabinets in light-coloured wood or pastel shades work best. Sleek’s Gloss kitchens offer unmatched sophistication with integrated handles and fully-coloured cabinet bodies that match the open element.
Indian décor is all about colour. Even if you do not want to add too many colours, a two-toned theme provides the right balance. Opt for contrasting tones on the top and bottom cabinets or paint the cabinets in one tone and countertops in another. This breaks the monotony of a traditional kitchen while keeping your modular kitchen visually interesting.
Indian cooking requires various appliances, utensils and ingredients— this means you will always need storage space. Select a modular kitchen with plenty of well-distributed shelves and cabinets. Use vertical storage space and corner spaces to the fullest.
If you do not want to go for an entire kitchen system in a vibrant colour or pattern, decorate a particular section and let your creative juices flow. Add a quirky clock or wall decal to make the space more fun.
Whether you are getting a new modular kitchen or renovating an old one, these beautiful design ideas can make your kitchen convenient to work in and beautiful to look at. When making your selection, keep the size of your space and number of family members in mind; make space optimisation one of your priorities.
