Pepping up the Powerhouse of your Home -- The Kitchen

A kitchen is not just the place for cooking and preparing meals. It is essentially the powerhouse of the entire house, which in turn, powers the 'cooked-up gastronomic energy' needs of the people staying in that house

Gone are the days, when one of the naturally ventilated corner places of the house were selected as logical place for constructing a kitchen. With modern lifestyles, cheesy architectural designs, changing real estate patterns, high percentage of multistoreyed apartment systems as against independent houses, etc. etc., the kitchen spaces have taken the centre stage of sorts.

Kitchen are now also being widely accepted as open or semi-open modular kitchen spaces. People have started opting for open and door-less kitchens, which are located right into, or right next to, the living rooms. This is being preferred by home owners and young generation dwellers, who-- 1) have relatively smaller square footage of available carpet area; or 2) have been wanting to keep the people working in the kitchen not feeling secluded while cooking.

With changing times, and altering lifestyles, kitchens have literally become those parts of home where one spends a lot of his/her time, whether it be cooking; or videocalling and chatting with family and friends; or making TikTok / Reel / YouTube shorts; or simply sitting down on a side table for a cup of beverage.  Kitchen spaces have become the hub of activity in modern households. 

Having a kitchen space in one's home that feels elegant, chique, modern, user friendly, as well as comfortable to work at, has become a very important design element not just for the home owners, but also for the architects, space planners, real estate developers, interior designers, modular kitchen contractors, etc.

Settling for open or semi-open, modern and minimalistic kitchen is more popular with the young-at-heart and millennials, the typical families still opt for kitchens that are spacious, corner-tucked, and having some degree of warmth and character by way of choosing for finished surfaces that are a mix of granite or composite stones working slabs, modular compartments that are closed-shuttered with wooden, laminated plyboard, stainless steel, painted composite panels, etc. 

It is also obviously important for one's kitchen to be intelligently functional and environment-friendly as well. Many a people,  who though initially prefer the idea of using the real wood for making the kitchen utilities and storage elements, ultimately decide to use the modern kitchen doors made out of environment friendly engineered wood which not only maintain a plush wood effect but are also easier to clean besides being long lasting in terms of looks and age.

To sum it up-- To make it feel as workable, aesthetic, modern or rustic, homely and most of all-- 'a special place in the home', the best way of designing the kitchens, is to have meaningful dialogue amongst the home owners and architects and interior designers, whereby kitchen designs and finishes should be decided and then built.

One definitely would prefer spending their precious time cooking, cooking+watching television, socializing with family or via internet, etc. in a tranquil cozy warmth-oozing modern kitchen space, rather than in a mere set of four walls and few storages and a working platform. One must plan and design a kitchen space with all-heart, thereby pepping up the powerhouse of the home-- The Kitchen :)
