Innovation has become a part of our lives, in today's world, meaning nothing but 'Modern.' With innovation, modern day kitchen welcomes modern ideas, complementary design features along with vibrant colours and shapes. This has also led to simplification of form, to suit any kitchen shape and design, through addition of individual elements, to form a seamless whole. Modular design, leading to Godrej's Modular Kitchens and wardrobes, to suit every conceivable need.
Basics on designing a kitchen:
The three important vector points of a Kitchen are the Refrigerator, the Hob/Cook Top and the Sink, as a person has to constantly move between these elements, during the cooking process. Consequently,the first step in kitchen design calls for awareness of placement of these units.
The 26 ft rule for designing a kitchen, keeps in mind the ideal placement of these units i.e if a virtual triangle is drawn from the centre of these units, the perimeter of the triangle should be no more than 26 ft., and not less than 12 ft for dexterous ease. This ensures that all gadgets and consumables are close at hand, leading to efficient movement, and ease of cooking.
Every Kitchen can be broadly divided into wet and dry areas. The wet areas are where the washing is done and the dry areas are where the cooking is done. Separation of the wet and dry areas, ensures hygiene is maintained, and post cooking clean-up no longer remains a chore.
