When was the last time you had a romantic brunch with your partner or hosted a lunch party at the weekends?
The blame may fall on your crazy schedule but that is not the truth. A messy kitchen scene comes in your way.
Modern homes have so-called dining or eating bars included in the open floor plan of the kitchen and so does Rinky’s.
Her kitchen has the most exquisite view with its doors opening into the lawn but the problem lay hidden in the layout and colour palette. It was time to reframe.
The wooden plank flooring gave her a clue and she hit the nail on the head by switching off to an all-white colour palette and combine it with the flooring material in the form of countertops.
There were some technical hitches, which she had not been serious about till her hired interior designer advised.
Every time she washed vegetables or utensils, water would spurt out wetting her dress. But the same doesn’t happen now after the shallow sink was replaced with a larger and deeper one.
She had already splashed out on the fine quality of wood for the flooring when she bought the duplex a few years back.
To splurge a second time and that too so early would be reckless decision though a little investment had to be made for the countertops.
She was seeking a cost-effective but attractive backsplash material and Transterior came up with an accurate solution.
White beadboard with a geometric pattern engraved on it was picked to produce an old-world charm.
Installation was easy and appeared much elegant than tiles. The expense occurred was incredibly low.
The beadboard backsplash became an instant hit among those who dropped in at her place. A fresh coat of paint is enough to renew your backsplash, which is reasonable.
She wanted to add a bit of grandeur without compromising on the simplicity of the interiors and her freedom.
Transterior suggested her some innovative faucets out of which she chose the one with a majestic look and vintage impact.
It has been a couple of years but not a single one visiting her home does leave without making an excuse to wash hands at the kitchen sink.
Covering the entire floor with an area rug is not necessary for Indian kitchens because of the climate.
A small rug is sufficient to accentuate the area occasionally or to relax your feet while standing at the stove.
The floral print she selected is vibrant and appears prominently on the wood flooring.
A slight modification of the original ceiling into a tray like formation made way for smart recessed lighting, thus making it party ready.
White is so pure a colour that it transcends all the mundane judgements based on quality and price especially, in terms of wall paint.
Less expensive cabinetry with glossy surfaces have been used but the classy wooden countertops balance it.
Weekend gatherings have already started at her home or the kitchen rather. Today she is preparing a cosy seating for Sunday brunch with close friends.
