Interior Design in a modern kitchen
Normally one thinks that modern kitchen is a special kitchen. The fact is they are built in modern times and share qualities that reflect modern ways of living. Now a days still people think that cooking is a private affair where one cooks alone and would not like disturbance but actually it is not that, every one would like to have company while cooking, The cook would like to talk to her guest while preparing an informal meal or want children to join her in the kitchen. Actually the cook would enjoy this freedom without sacrificing the efficiency. Hence openness would be the key quality required while designing the kitchen. The open kitchen represents a fresh view point in kitchen planning. It has evolved to fill the needs of today’s family that go without having full time maids, today’s working family who would like to live and entertain in informal ways.
Do you require open kitchen? Well first step in planning a new or redecorating kitchen is an evaluation of family habits and living style. Do you have frequent guests coming at your place? How formal or informal? Do the kids need a place to entertain their friends?
Next step is planning calls for self evaluation by the cook. Does she work with domestic help, does her husband or kid help or she prefers to work by her self? Does the cook like to cook or she must? If family habits and requirement make an informal way of living acceptable and if the cook herself likes company while she works, open kitchen would be a proper answer.
So if you have decided to have open kitchen do not worry as today’s open kitchen do not ignore the necessary elements of good kitchen planning. On the contrary they go a step further, they add livability. In few cases there could be loss of some storage space as big opening means less of overhead storage; this can be compensated by proper planning of shelves and storage boxes. Care is to be taken not to waste any volume in the storage units. Space between two shelves should be exactly the size of the storage boxes not leaving empty volume between the boxes and the upper shelf.
