Modular Kitchen Ideas for Studio Apartments
When taking up a studio apartment, you are left with little to no choice of how spacious the kitchen’s going to be, unlike in a spacious house. However, do not let the dearth of choice discourage you from making your kitchen an enjoyable place to work in.
By getting a Kutchina modular kitchen layout installed, you can ensure optimum form and functionality of your cooking space. Inspire the style and functionality of your studio apartment kitchen with these modular kitchen ideas:
1) Identify your work triangle
Did you know that you work in a triangular pattern in your kitchen without you even realising it? The triangle constitutes the cooktop, refrigerator, and sink – the three amenities you use frequently.
Are you somebody who doesn’t want to navigate much and prefers to have the essential kitchen amenities at proximity? Or are you comfortable with the cooktop refrigerator, and sink placed distant from each other? Determine your requirement and it’ll be easy for you to choose the right modular layout.
2) Countertop and cabinet height
the height of the countertop and cabinet plays an important role in determining how comfortably you can work. The countertop and cabinet height should be such that you don’t have to bend forward and neither do you have to use a foot tool to reach for the upper cabinets. For Indian kitchens, the recommended countertop height is 820 mm to 860 mm. Make sure that the gap between the countertop and upper cabinets isn’t too wide.
3) Ensure proper ventilation
The comfort quotient of your studio apartment kitchen largely depends on how well the ventilation is. Without proper ventilation, your kitchen turns into a stuffy space filled with pesky cooking fumes. Get an electric chimney installed to ensure proper ventilation in your studio apartment kitchen. Modern kitchen chimneys available in our collection employ a high-output electric motor which gives the models a high suction power.
4) The right finish is the secret
If you wonder what makes modular kitchens featured in home decor magazines look so good, it’s their finishes. With a Kutchina modular setup, you get the option of choosing between various cabinet finishes, including laminate, UV high gloss, acrylic, rubberwood, PU paint, and lacquered glass.
5) Lighting says it all
Regardless of how premium your cabinet finishes look, your efforts of styling your modular kitchen will not yield optimum results if you don’t get the lighting right. Apart from primary lighting, choose task and accent lighting. Task lights focus on specific task areas such as countertops and pantry bay while accent lights are for embellishing the cabinet recesses.
6) Put corner spaces to use
If you have limited space in your studio apartment kitchen, the trick is to utilise every inch of space to make it functional. Corner spaces go unused in most kitchen setups; to effectively utilise the space, get corner carousels installed within the bottom cabinets.
