Preparing tasty and hearty meals is nothing short of an art form. And to have a smooth and enjoyable cooking session, you definitely need a trendy and functional kitchen that offers ample space to store, move around and experiment. Neat lines, minimalistic fixtures and smartly positioned lights are some other features of a practical and inviting kitchen. So, today, we will take a look at three such inspiring kitchens rendered by the interior designers and decorators at LID INTERIOR in Kolkata. All these kitchens are intelligently planned, easy on the eyes and make it easy to stay organised. Bold and contemporary This modern kitchen has a dark pink and cream colour palette that is bold and inviting. Smooth cabinets with minimalistic handles offer tons of space to store crockery, cutlery, cleaning supplies, containers and more. The window brings in ample natural light for a cheery feel. Note how a corner has been designated for the washing machine and a niche has been reserved for the microwave. Lights embedded under the overhead cabinets illuminate the countertop nicely. Storage heaven We love how the cabinets in this kitchen reach up to kiss the ceiling and make space for all odds and ends. The cooking station is modern and features a sleek chimney hood to keep the space free from smoke and grime. The corner near the window accommodates the fridge comfortably while the sink is close to the cooking station to make washing hands, utensils and veggies simple. Simple yet smart Though this kitchen uses soft white and grey tones, it makes an impression with its clean lines, glossy cabinets and modern appliances. Thanks to the soothing hues, the space looks bright and airy too. Note how all the cabinets and shelves are easily accessible. Intelligent hacks The corner especially attracts our attention in this kitchen. Lights embedded under the cabinets help brighten the countertop and helps when you are chopping fruits or veggies, marinating meats, sorting herbs or putting together a salad. They look aesthetic too and are not glaring. We also admire the white niche with a socket, which can be easily used to house a microwave or a toaster. Fashionable in blue This futuristic kitchen has a U-shaped counter and is equipped with all the latest appliances you might need to prepare classy meals. A gorgeous shade of blue livens up this bright and airy space, and contrasts the white and grey surfaces well. The counter features inbuilt cabinets and drawers for storing all essentials, and a couple of bar stools allow family members or guests to chat with the chef and enjoy a drink. Inviting openness The way the open kitchen you just saw merges with the dining area, is truly inspiring. This makes the home look welcoming and warm. Wooden chairs and a large window in the dining space add to the attraction, while the hexagonal wall shelves lend a quirky touch. The shelves are perfect for displaying knickknacks. The lighting is sufficient yet muted for a serene ambiance.
