Go for a pantry unit for storing all your dry ingredients. Increase the height (vertical) of the wall cabinets till ceiling to maximise storage.
5. Find the right materials
Zeroing on the materials indeed requires a bit of a legwork as it affects your overall budget planning.
Going for a low quality material would lower the cost but will increase the maintenance cost and negatively impact the durability of the kitchen.
Opt for MDF, HDHMR, HDF or particle boards that are moisture and temperature resistant. The latest BWR plywood is even more superior than these.
For countertops or splashbacks, work over different options such as granite, or quartz. Checkout what works best for you?
6. Appliances and Accessories
From bottle pull-out units, wicker baskets, cutlery organizer to space saving corner units, sliding door system and stupendous inner diving systems, garner your kitchen with a wide range of modular kitchen accessories.
Integrated appliances save a lot of space and blend in seamlessly with the design.
Lack of space? No worries!
You can always go for freestanding appliances that resonate and gel in with any kitchen design style and makes your kitchen appear clutter free and flawless.
7. Theme and Colour selection
Be it monochrome or two-tone contrasting ones, the colour scheme and theme impacts the overall interior modular kitchen design.
A careful and diligent selection of colour palettes elevates the overall mood of the kitchen space and turns it lively, cheery, classy and elegant.
The colours not only define the wall. They’re a vital factor for countertops, flooring, cabinets and islands as well.
Choose wisely or reach to professionals for more assistance.
Alike other spaces in the home, kitchen too needs sufficient and proper lighting.
A well-lit kitchen space should be on priority right from the planning phase to ensure proper illumination for cooking and preparation.
Choose a lighting style/type that blends in with the current interior design and enhances the functionality of the space by making kitchen the showstopper of your home.
You may also consider for under cabinetry lighting that helps to overcome the dark zones created by overhead units.
Regardless of type, size and layout of the kitchen, ventilation should never be ignored or taken lightly.
Exhaust fans and chimneys are saviors to this especially when it comes to the Indian Kitchens.
Make sure that vent systems are properly and adroitly placed in the kitchen design.
Placing of doors/windows should also be analyzed to ensure cross ventilation.
10. Focus on Safety
Choose slip-resistant floor tiles that enable easy cleaning for any spills, breaks or regular chores.
Seek assistance from skilled and professional designers for selecting the kitchen tiles to select the one best for your kitchen and budget.
Place your appliances closer to the switchboards and ensure maintaining a distance from hob and basin.
11. 3D Renders
The moment you are done with the planning, it’s time to switch to designing.
