India“We managed to pack plenty of functional elements into the compact space, while still making it aesthetically pleasing,” says Sunita Yogesh, founder and principal designer of Sunita Yogesh Studio. Most Indian city flats have compact kitchens and effort is always expended on maximizing the space and bringing in as much storage and functionality as possible. This kitchen brings both, and with style. The homeowner of this house moved back to India after living in the United States for over 10 years. She wanted the design of her 105-square-meter-flat to make the most of available space yet reflect a contemporary, calm and soothing ambience through clean lines and subtle neutrals. This can be seen in the kitchen space as well. This kitchen was originally outfitted with basic materials but was completely torn down and redesigned from scratch. The homeowner’s dream was to have an all-white kitchen so the designers opted for a herringbone backsplash, quartz countertop and Shaker-style cabinets in an all-white palette. They also incorporated open wooden shelves to give the space some warmth. The kitchen also hosts a small utility zone at the far end for laundry and storage.

The original kitchen was outfitted with builder-grade materials, and featured a brown backsplash and plain countertop. “The client’s dream was to have an all-white kitchen. In line with that vision, we tore down the shell and started from scratch. We opted for a herringbone backsplash, quartz countertop and Shaker-style cabinets in an all-white palette. In addition, we incorporated open wooden shelves to give the space a swish spin. The kitchen also hosts a bijou utility zone at the far end, for laundry and storage,” says Yogesh.
