Based on the kitchen space and keeping in mind the kitchen ergonomics, a kitchen layout is finalised.

However, if the space permits experimenting with the various layouts, one can choose from the U-shaped, L-shaped, single wall, galley or island kitchen.

Select the one that matches the requirements and choice.

The kitchen design professionals ensure that your kitchen follows a perfect work triangle rule to have a smooth workflow.

But it will increase the maintenance cost, and not only this, but it also affects the kitchen durability.

From kitchen splashbacks to countertops, flooring and other materials, select the perfect materials for your kitchen space.

9. Kitchen Appliances and Accessories

Kitchen accessories have a lot more to say rather than just accommodating the kitchen essentials!

From wicker baskets, cutlery organisers of variant sizes to pull out spice units, inner dividing systems and corner units to utilise the dump spaces, kitchen accessories can help use it all efficiently by providing a space-saving solution.

Kitchen appliances are not only awkwardly matched adjustments anymore.

Today’s kitchen appliances blend seamlessly within the design to create a more streamlined design.

10. Colour selection

A pop of colour always makes a difference. A diligent colour selection enhances the mood while making the space more lively and classy.

Whether you like a single pop of colour or a two-toned contrasting, or a timeless white, your colour selection can change the entire scenario.

11. Appropriate Lighting

Well-lit kitchen space is an essential element that can make or break the entire mood.

To keep the mood enhanced and joyful, choose the appropriate lighting that blends seamlessly within the kitchen interiors while helping you focus on the specific tasks with task lighting.

Bring in the difference with the well-distributed lighting and use it all as per the requirements.
