What is a dry kitchen?The dry kitchen is designed as an extended part of the living or dining room and matches with its decor.This kitchen comprises a small kitchen countertop with a shallow sink for basic hand washing and knife cleaning. There may be provision for a microwave, a blender, a toaster and a cooktop (optional).It is a smoke-free kitchen and is only used for light and simple meal preparation which includes breakfast, easy snacks, baking, making sandwiches or cutting fruits.How to Convert a Conventional Kitchen Into a Semi-Modular Kitchen
3. Proper ventilationA well-ventilated kitchen rids it of strong cooking smells, at the same time offering an escape from air pollutants such as smoke, gases and air-borne grease. Mitigating their harmful effects will also result in the improvement of indoor air quality (IAQ). A ducted chimney does this best, as it extracts indoor air from the kitchen and expels it outside.Tip: Don’t forget the benefits of natural ventilation, something that one overlooks in an era where air conditioning is the norm. If you have windows, open them – it’s a nice way to get some fresh air in to replace cooking odours. How to Have a Smoke-Free Kitchen
5. KitchenUse faux textural imageryTexture doesn’t have to be felt to be sensed. The Athangudi tiles here, besides lending an old-world charm, give the visual effect of texture despite being completely flat. The exposed brick wall with a latticed window lends the kitchen the tactile aspect of texture.
Turquoise, brick-red and whiteWhile the central colour theme of this kitchen is white, there is plenty of drama happening around. The turquoise window effortlessly blends with the vintage brick wall – and the Moroccan-inspired tiles add more colour and give this kitchen loads of personality.
3. Firm: Ankit PrabhudessaiLocation: IndiaIt’s a gripping visual where the minimalist island and wall cabinets in stark white are enveloped by a vibrant room with patterned flooring, brick wall and a Goan mother-of-pearl window. The kitchen shows a balance between modern and rustic elements: the handle-less kitchen cabinets looks seamless and modish, and the decor elements around it have an earthy quality to them.

19. Wow wall and floorThe exposed brick wall with a blue window, here, gives the kitchen a spirited ambience. Further, the coloured, patterned cement floor bestows a touch of old-world vernacular charm. This kitchen oozes personality with its white cabinetry, glossy textures and modern appliances, all lit by a large window opening out to the atrium.
