3. Kitchen Overhead Storage

Overhead storage, the upper part of the kitchen platform.

When entering your kitchen the first thing you able to see is the overhead storage. Which should not look gaudy. Use of dark colors, wooden figures, and multiple colors adds heaviness to your kitchen.

Overhead storage should be a plain white in color, you can use laminate, or acrylic for that also. White color gives a spacious and neat look to your kitchen.

Using an aluminum profile glass shutters are also a good option for overhead storage because glass also cut down the heaviness and gives an illusion of more space in your kitchen.

You can have semi-transparent or half frosted shutters to showcase your crockery items or to easily access the bottles and Dibba from the cabinet.

4. Pullout Trolleys

Replace the ordinary way of keeping masalas and oil bottles on an open rack.

Plan a vertical pullout trolley under the kitchen counter, which gives you 3 tier spice rack to keep your bottles from 5 inches to 12 inches height.

This spice rack allows you to access the oil and spice instantly while cooking and it installed near the hob/gas stove.

Another same pullout you can plan below the sink area for keeping detergent, liquids, soap, etc.

5. Tall Unit

If your kitchen space allows then you must plan a tall unit near kitchen countertop to keep appliances.

We all have seen microwave oven placed above the refrigerator, on the kitchen platform, and on an open wall shelf, which is not the right way to use. Microwave oven or OTG should be at your eye level where you can see what’s cooking inside.

If you don’t want to use appliances then you can install other accessories in the tall unit to store your additional things.

6. Color choice for an entire kitchen

Selecting a color for kitchen shutters and cabinets is also important because the look matters.

While finalizing your modular kitchen don’t make a decision on the basis of display installed at the showrooms you visit. You should consider your kitchen countertop color and wall tiles and choose accordingly.

We recommend
1. To use a maximum of two colors in the entire kitchen shutters and cabinets.
2. Where one color should be white and other dark or lighter shade color.
3. Avoid figured laminate on shutters

7. Don’t forget to have loft storage

A small kitchen needs to utilize each and every inch of storage space which is available, so you can not leave the loft space blank. You can utilize that space for storing big stuff and once in a while usage of utensils.

Because empty space above the overhead storage will take place of dust and dirt. So it’s better to have extra storage even if you don’t require, it maintains the look of the entire kitchen.

8. Exhaust Fan VS Chimney

Whether to install exhaust fan or chimney, most of the homeowners get confused.

Let us make it easy for you to decide.

1. If your cooking requirement is normal, like not making non-veg food regularly and your kitchen hob facing to window side then exhaust fan is enough for ventilation.

2. If you cook Non-veg food regularly and have a small kitchen then you will be required to have a chimney and especially the ducted chimney, because the filter chimney has low suction power than ducted one.

3. If your cooking requirement is normal but you have planned an open kitchen which is open to the living room then you will be required to have a chimney compulsory, because the heat and fumes of food will spread in the living room also.

9. Kitchen Handles selection

Selection of handles is also very important because the operating of shutters and cabinet depends on handles itself.

Kitchen Handles selection

There are a variety of new handles available in the market, use pull grip profile handles, G-Section, J-Section, D-Section with different finishes also like chrome finish, brush finish, matt finish, black matt, rose gold finish, etc.

Avoid using traditional open handles, which is not convenient when you work in the kitchen and sharp edges of the handles hurt and harmful for kids.

10. Lights arrangement

Artificial light also necessary in the kitchen while you work on the kitchen platform.

In the day time, you may get natural lights through the window but in the evening or one who doesn’t have window ventilation in the kitchen required proper lights.

Once the overhead storage installed above the kitchen platform the lights from the ceiling doesn’t pass directly on the platform when you are standing at the place.
