In India, we think of the kitchen as the ‘Soul of the house’. A far cry from the dark and dank, dust and smoke filled, grimy spaces of old, kitchens in India have, in recent years, emerged as a trendy space with clean lines, minimalist décor and optimal use of space.

Gone are the days of large Indian families cooking together and sharing meals in one kitchen. As more and more families go nuclear, kitchen designs in India have become cleaner, modern and more functional.

Planning a kitchen is not just about putting together assorted materials and accessories. Even today, the kitchen is a space where the woman of the house spends a good chunk of her time and it is important to ensure that it looks aesthetically pleasing, adds comfort and value to your home design without compromising on functionality and space.

Here is a look at 4 of the top Kitchen Ideas for the Indian Home.

  1. The Kitchen as an Entertaining Centre

Today, an open kitchen concept is becoming more and more common. The kitchen area openly flows into the dining space and the living area, creating a unified space to entertain guests. Because of this, kitchen counters and islands are increasingly becoming dining areas and kitchen cabinets and accessories, more like fine furniture. This arrangement also provides ample space for a banquet style of dining, making it a comfortable way for people to congregate and get the conversation flowing.

  1. Pristine White Kitchens

Remember the time when your mother wanted to choose only dark finishes for the kitchen because it was impossible to keep kitchen slabs, counters and cabinets free from soot and grime? Well, no more. Today all-white kitchens are very popular in India, and in fact, as considered to be the very epitome of a modernistic kitchen! Nothing speaks elegance, minimalism and simplicity as profoundly as ‘White’. White cabinets are beautiful and timeless, versatile enough to blend with any décor. 

  1. Built-In Appliances

Today we use a wide variety of appliances to cut back on cooking time. From built-in gas hobs and microwaves and ovens to toasters and electric mixers, modern Indian kitchens have space to fit every modern appliance a working woman needs to be able to whip up a home-cooked meal in a jiffy. Stainless steel appliances look beautiful and work with various styles. The sleekness of steel gives a polished look to refrigerators, cooktops and even waste bins. These are also easier to clean and maintain.

  1. Intelligent Storage

Most people are installing modular kitchens and often talk of it with great pride, but the fact is that even within modular kitchen options there are many design and functionality variations. Depending on your style of cooking if you need to use more pots and pans and fewer pressure cookers and kadais then you need to make sure that your modular kitchen is designed to house and store the utensils that you would need and use. Based on your needs, you can now install a bespoke modular kitchen that caters to your particular requirements – plate racks, built in cutlery organizers, corner solutions based on your needs and even pantry units, roller shutters and more.
