The kitchen is the heart of the home, a gathering place for casual family meals and to catch-up cups of coffee with friends and neighbors. A Kitchen needs to facilitate all these activities while melding seamlessly into the rest of your home’s design. When you’re decorating and designing your dream kitchen, it should be in a style you love and that goes with the rest of your home. Kitchens not only have to look beautiful but need to be functional as well.
As an Architect, practising in Bangalore, India, when I am hired specifically for the design of the interiors of a Kitchen, there are certain planning considerations, that I keep in mind. These include the fixtures, the minimum clearances, sizes, accessories that the client requires, the materials for the backsplashes and countertops, the colours and Vastu guidelines.
