What Houzz contributors are saying:
KitchenThe exhaust fan is installed in kitchens to remove heat and other kitchen fumes that are produced while cooking.Steam is produced while cooking, which creates a humid indoor environment. The exhaust fan replaces the humid air with fresh air, which prevents the growth of mould and mildew that otherwise might also cause various allergies, asthma or serious respiratory infections.Note: The kitchen exhaust fan should be close to the ceiling because hot air rises and gathers near the ceiling. The exhaust pulls the hot air and expels it.
Pro: Less expensiveThese cooktops are reasonably priced and in case of damage, the spare parts are easily available. Most cooktops are made in stainless steel and are available in designs with one to five burners.Con: Looks bulkySince the cooktop is raised at least 4 inches above the counter and the gas pipeline is also visible, it may look bulky, especially in small kitchens.
5. Planning for less clutterAum Architects has tactfully planned this kitchen to be a decluttered space. Light tones, high tiling, storage cabinets at the bottom, as opposed to being on the top, combine to give this space a breezy appeal. The wall tiles themselves serve as a backsplash and the floating open shelf allows minimal storage above.
Tile upPlay with a pale palette to maximise the space in your home. Use lighter, softer colours for tiling tight spaces. Try tiling the walls in your kitchen/ bathrooms up to the ceiling for the added impression of height and space. This idea works very well as extended tiled splashbacks in your kitchen area as well. “Light colours give a feeling of freshness and openness to a space,” says interior designer Minnie Bhatt.
