What Houzz contributors are saying:
Clean and deodorise your microwave. In a microwave-safe bowl, mix 115ml water with 2 teaspoons of baking soda. Place the mixture in the microwave and ‘cook’ on high for 2 minutes. Remove the bowl and simply wipe the moistened inside of the microwave clean.
2. Fuss-free cabinet surfaces Sticky or food-stained fingermarks on cabinets can be a constant problem, thanks to children and amateur adult chefs in equal measure. So, opt for surfaces and finishes that are less likely to show up smudges and are easy to clean, such as smooth laminates or latex paints. Fingermarks are less visible on a matt surface than a glossy one, and even less so on a textured stone or wood door, so consider this when choosing cabinet and drawer fronts.

On extra storageAn island creates an opportunity for hardworking storage depending on how large of a base you can create. Deep drawers, cabinets and even a spot for the microwave free up the need for perimeter cabinets, allowing you to instead have open shelves or a window. On creating another location for a sink or a rangeAn island can offer a location for a main sink or prep sink if perimeter space isn’t available or ideal. For the same reason, an island can be good for a cooktop, although in general Cannell tries to avoid this situation because of the difficulties with providing adequate venting. On focal pointsBy introducing a base colour that’s different from the perimeter cabinets, or a countertop material different from the perimeter, you can use an island to create a dramatic focal point.
1. Installing a kitchen island with a cooktop in the middle of this L-shaped kitchen makes the layout more space-efficient. The kitchen by Marvel Realtors Projects uses the otherwise void floor area and cuts down on extra footsteps, allowing one to move easily between the sink and other appliances. Along with cabinetry along the entire L-length, the under-stove storage is an added bonus.
1. Paint it whiteWhite reflects light, which can help brighten up dull areas. Painting the walls and cabinetry white can create a seamless flow of surfaces that easily blend into each other. This will not only make the kitchen brighter but give it a feel of openness too. This kitchen also dons trim white moulding on the window and the false ceiling, which brings in depth. Tip: Near the cooktop and on the cabinets, go for easy-to-clean paints that can be easily wiped clean of those stubborn grease and masala stains.7 White Kitchens That Mix It Up With Accents
3. Between the white island, countertops, cabinets, splashback and walls, this kitchen by Marvel Realtors in Pune is about as white as it gets. While the sea of white creates the illusion of more space as one surface blends into the other, metallic elements like the steel chimney exhaust and the in-built appliances break the monotony and add depth to the room.11 Ways to Make Your Kitchen Look and Feel Bigger
4. Stow ’em away The dishwasher, microwave and other appliances should be out of reach of toddlers and new walkers. Use safety locks or latches on cabinet doors and drawers. Having said that, it is not only the appliances that can be a danger, but sharp cutlery and household chemicals too. So stow away as much as possible – be it detergents or appliances – in drawers and cabinets. And remember, what cannot be stowed away can always be latched shut.
7. White powerThis kitchen is a vision in white. The sleek cabinets, with slim chrome handles, run along two sides of the room while the stove island takes centrestage. The huge windows in the back wall are covered by translucent glass to keep the natural light in check and ambient lights line the false ceiling to give a warm glow to the space. This balance of lighting makes sure the kitchen is lit up just right.
