Things to keep in mind while designing a modular kitchen

  • The interiors of your kitchen should be made according to your preference and desires rather than regretting later for messing it up.

  • The space of your kitchen does not matter if it is big or small unless you plan well and install things in an organized way.
  • To colour the walls of your modular kitchen, you can make use of the wall decals which are attractive and appealing. The wall decals are particularly needed near the chimney area as that area tends to be filled with smoke and vapor which make the wall gummy. If not the wall decal you can paint your kitchen walls with emulsion paint providing a mat finish to your walls. Shades like yellow and ivory will make your smaller kitchen look larger whereas bold colours like blue and red can make your kitchen look chic and attractive. Make sure that the colours in your kitchen match the colours on your floor.
  • Apart from cabinets and closets, you can mount a part of the kitchen wall with metal or wood racks to keep your bottle stuff organized.
  • To make it more organized. The baking utensils can be placed in a separate cabinet near the oven and the frequently used wares can be placed near the dishwasher along with a ware stand to place the smaller utensils.
  • Apart from all these you should make sure that you keep your kitchen clean and place everything in an orderly manner and add accessories like vegetable paintings, artwork or flowers on the table or the refrigerator.
