This kitchen was totally transformed from the existing floor plan. I used a mix of horizontal walnut grain with painted cabinets. A huge amount of storage in all the drawers as well in the doors of the cooker hood and a little bread storage pull out that is usually wasted space. My signature corner drawers this time just having 2 drawers as i wanted a 2 drawer look all around the perimeter.You will see i even made the sink doors "look" like 2 drawers. There is a designated cooking area which my client loves with all his knives/spices/utensils etc all around him. I reduced the depth of the cabinets on one side to still allow for my magic number pass through space, this area has pocket doors that hold appliances keeping them hidden but accessible. My clients are thrilled with the finished look.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
If you have a cooktop you can use the drawers in the cabinet below for storing your cookware. Make the bottom drawer deep enough to store your pots, with the corresponding lids stored in a shallower drawer above.
3. Systematic utensil storageIn an ergonomic kitchen, utensils are stored in differently-sized cabinets and sectional drawers as per their sizes. Most drawers come with pull-outs so that everything can be viewed and accessed without bending too much or reaching out deep within the cabinets. Additionally, the end corners of U-shaped or L-shaped kitchens that are inaccessible due to the cabinet’s depth are converted into functional space with special modular accessories.
1. Plan the layoutClever planning can create a well-organised and clutter-free kitchen. Make sure that the layout fits your convenience and brings efficiency in your working process. It is essential to demarcate the positions of the drawers, cabinets, hob, microwave, RO filter and other gadgets and electrical points as per your requirements before bringing in a modular furniture contractor. Note that a built-in hob or cooktop cannot be installed in a semi-modular kitchen as it is not advisable to make a cut-out within the existing stone countertop.
3. Compartmentalise storage With a modular kitchen, you can personalise compartments and optimise all your storage space. If you have a big family, you are likely to own more, and probably larger utensils. Consider creating differently-sized sections for your utensils and gadgets, just like this one does – the section right below the gas stove fits in the bigger pots, pans and kadais.
