(We love layout #6!)
There’s kitchen ergonomics and the concept of the work triangle- all of this eventually boils down to selecting the correct kitchen layout for your modular kitchen space. Keep in mind the amount of space you have and how busy an area your kitchen is going to be once the remodel is complete! There must be equal importance is given to functionality and aesthetics and a good understanding of the space before finalising a kitchen layout.
Here are six kitchen layouts to choose from:
1. Straight Line Kitchen Layout
The workspace in a one wall kitchen layout is spread out along a segment of the wall which is greater than 10 feet long. This houses the cooking, preparation and cleaning surfaces. The wall and base cabinets are all laid out against a single wall. Usually, the sink is placed at one corner while the stove or cooktop is placed on the other end of the open-wall kitchen layout. The fridge, which is the third component of the work triangle (stretched out into a line in this case), is usually placed on one of the ends.
This is the layout of choice for narrow and space-restricted kitchens or in cases where clients do have a large space but want an open kitchen.
2. L-Shaped Kitchen Layout
In an L-shaped layout, two walls perpendicular to one another are used to fit cabinets and workspaces. There should be a well thought out corner unit too to ensure the best use of the space. There must be a counter space to work on between the three elements of the kitchen triangle (cooktop, fridge and sink).
This versatile layout is a very popular choice in modern modular kitchens as it allows for easy accessibility and can make your kitchen appear spacious. The L-shaped layout maximises space and therefore, allows for a seating area to be fitted into your kitchen interior design too.
3. Galley Kitchen Layout
In a galley kitchen layout, two walls opposite and parallel to one another are used to house the cabinets and workspaces. A galley is frequently seen in professional chefs kitchens but may not be practical if both ends of the corridor are open in a home setup. It sets the stage for a really efficient kitchen work triangle with ample counter and cabinet storage space.
In a galley layout, it is advisable to keep the cooktop and cleaning area on the same side to reduce accidental injuries while transporting between the two sides.
4. U-Shaped Kitchen Layout
Three walls are allotted to hold the cabinets and counters in a U-shaped kitchen layout. This works out to function as the perfect layout for a kitchen as you can place each aspect of the kitchen triangle against one of the walls.
You get more work space as well as storage space in a U-shaped layout. The only drawback is that it may make a kitchen appear more cramped and full.
5. G-Shaped Kitchen Layout
The configuration of a G-shaped kitchen is similar to a U-shaped one with a peninsular area which can be used as a preparation zone. In most remodels involving a U-shaped layout, if the client has a request for more counter space and storage, the G-shaped layout is pitched. In this layout, the person working in the kitchen can literally surround themselves with all they need, thereby ensuring greater cooking efficiency.
6. L-Shaped with Island Layout
Saving the best for last is a modification of the L-shaped kitchen. Islands are pretty popular in the West, but slowly have been rising in popularity in India too. The island functions as a buffet area, an additional preparation zone as well as an eating area- extremely versatile! It’s a good idea to place your sink on the island to complete the work triangle. However some people prefer having cooktops on the island or leaving it bare as a preparation cum entertaining zone.
To elevate the look of your island, invest in bar seating and ambient hanging light fixtures.
For your comfort and safety
Starting your kitchen interiors plan keeping in mind ergonomics and functionality is a good idea.
Here’s why kitchen ergonomics are important for your kitchen interior design:
- To create a practical kitchen layout
- To ensure safety
- To ensure comfort and avoid long-term issues
- Easier completion of all kitchen related tasks
- Efficient organisation of the workspaces in the kitchen
Let’s explore a few simplified guidelines regarding kitchen planning to ensure a smooth ergonomic flow, as suggested by the interior design experts at Bespoke Décor:
The door should have a clear path of opening and closing and floor space without interfering with the safe operation of any appliances or another door. It is recommended to leave a clear path of opening at least 32” wide for a 3” door.
Make sure there is an uninterrupted path of traffic between the three main work zones in your kitchen- the cooktop, sink, and refrigerator. For more details on the work triangle, check out our article here.
After finalising the position of the kitchen sink based on the work triangle, let’s examine a few technical aspects of the sink. It must be lesser than 34” and not deeper than 6.5”. The lower portion of the sink must be free of abrasive or sharp projections which may potentially injure the user. The sink should have a landing area between 18-24” long.
It is recommended to leave a clearance of at least 15” between the landing area of your fridge and any other surface. There must be sufficient floor space in front of the fridge to facilitate opening.
There must be a minimum 12” of landing area on one side of the cooktop and 15” on the other. For safety reasons, a clearance of minimum 9” is recommended behind the cooking surface if placed on the countertop. Another safety implication is to avoid curtains if your cooktop is against your window. Also, make sure that there is adequate ventilation- properly sized ducted ventilation should do the trick in modern kitchens.
Your kitchen should have a minimum of 158” of countertop space placed at a depth of 24” at least with a 15” clearance above it. It is also recommended to ensure that your countertop edges are smooth and rounded to avoid accidental injury.
Choose your aesthetic from the most-loved kitchen styles!
Aesthetics and functionality are the priorities of any space where kitchen interiors are completed. When you invest in curating a bespoke kitchen from scratch, keep in mind your family’s requirements, and tailor-make a kitchen that will work for you.
In this blogpost, we shall be discussing the nuances involved in creating a kitchen style based on the aesthetic that appeals to you best. We have listed out the top 5 that appeal to the Kerala-based market and everything you need to know to create your dream kitchen with us at Bespoke Décor.
1. Traditional Kerala Style
Feel the twinge of nostalgia every time you walk into your kitchen with the elegant and functional Kerala vintage style kitchen aesthetic. This one feels most like home with all the elements of the kitchen tying together in the Kerala home setting.
Opt for countertops with an iron copper appearance, contemporary backsplash options to plain tiles of a colour palette that suits traditional kitchens. To give your kitchen the traditional Kerala kitchen design, it would be a good option to choose wall and base cabinets with shutters made of natural wood. However, if you are concerned about the seasonal challenges that natural wood presents, why not opt for a material of your choice treated or stained to offer a similar appearance.
Our signature collection has just the thing for you- ‘The Epicurean’ would suit a traditional Kerala kitchen really well with its dark wood island counter and artistic elements. Choose a Kerala style mural painting to complete the look and don’t forget to customise the cabinet pulls in wooden finishes instead.
Extra points for styling your countertop and glass-concealed shelving with traditional Kerala-style bronze and copper utensils.
If you are someone who is drawn to a minimalist style and way of living, opt for cool tones like white with a hint of pastel shades for your overall kitchen. Maintain clean lines with an all-white kitchen with ivory countertops, backsplash, cabinetry, and appliances. For a pop of color, get the wall and base cabinets in pastel shades.
For an all-white look, opt for the country-style Suave 5-piece Veneer Kitchen. If you’re more inclined towards pastel shades, our signature ‘The Nature Lover’ Sleek modular kitchen is sure to get your attention!
3.Opulent & Luxurious
For a kitchen remodel, it is not uncommon for clients to want a design as opulent as the rest of their home interiors. Think high ceilings with ornate chandeliers, marble countertops and French-style cabinets. Modify your wall cabinets to darker wood stains to offset the marble countertops. You could also opt for a few glass concealed cabinets holding crystal and chinaware to lend an air of richness to your kitchen. Style with marsala elements and don’t shy away from getting a curtain swag from a local upholsterer. Curtains are not a good option in kitchens but offset your blinds with a curtain swag up top to complete the luxe look!
Our ‘Striking Veneer Combined With Matte Finish Handles Kitchen’ with its magnificent wood finishes can be the foundation onto which you build up the opulence of your dream kitchen.
The futuristic style of the kitchen is a popular option these days. Speak to an expert interior designer to install ceramic or grey colored cabinets with bespoke lighting and interesting shapes for a kitchen that looks straight out of the future!
Do not be afraid to experiment with different shapes for your kitchen cabinetry. Invest in good lighting to complete your futuristic kitchen look. Say no to all wood elements!
You may love our ‘Minimal Grey Combined With Dark Ceramic Island Finish’ modular kitchen if you prefer the futuristic style.
For a simpler kitchen interior design, the organic look is a client favorite. White walls with a light-colored backsplash and light-brown stained wood wall cabinets with a herb garden can breathe that air of life needed in a kitchen. This look is easy on the eyes as well as on the budget!
We have many modular kitchen designs to suit the organic kitchen look- our favorites are the ‘Enchanting Veneer Blended With Smart Corian Finish’, ‘Laminate PU Combination’, ‘Vintage Wooden Style Kitchen’ and ‘Superb Handless PU Veneer Combination’ modular kitchens.
Is it really as important as it is believed to be?
The kitchen is a space of a house that makes it a home- it is where food is prepared to feed the family. A few studies reveal that an average of 6 hours is spent in the kitchen by an Indian woman or man. If you will be spending this much time in the kitchen, shouldn’t it be as user-friendly as it can possibly be?
This brings us to the kitchen interior design concept of the Kitchen Work Triangle- a time-tested theory and a commonly used benchmark to measure a kitchen’s design and functionality.
What is the Kitchen Work Triangle?
- This triangle connects three units- the stove/cooktop, fridge, and the kitchen sink
- Best practices suggest that the line connecting any two of these three units should not be below 4 feet or above 9 feet
- The total of all three sides of the kitchen triangle should be under 26 feet
- The triangle should not be crossed by any major traffic patterns or full-height obstructions
What this does is that it allows a clear flow without unnecessary movements between your cooking, cleaning, and food storage areas in your modular kitchen. This concept originated in the 1940s and it has continued to evolve over the years to catch up with the multi-functional ever-evolving modern kitchen. Let’s examine each one of these three traditionally labelled zones in detail and then take a look at the newer modifications:
1. Cooking Zone
Most kitchens have stoves or induction plates wherein food is cooked. This is where you use your culinary skills and create your edible masterpieces!
It is advised to store your cooking utensils and commonly used spices in the cabinets at the closest proximity to the cooktop.
Recent modifications also include ovens and microwaves in these zones. It is important to consider how important these other two cooking appliances are to your daily cooking and then make a decision regarding their placement.
2. Cleaning Zone
The cleaning zone mainly comprises the kitchen sink. It is here that used dishes are placed during and after cooking to be scrubbed and cleaned.
Recent modifications to this zone include dishwashers, garbage disposal units and a place to keep your household cleaning supplies. It is commonly noticed that the dishwashers and waste disposal is usually set up very close to and below the kitchen sink respectively. In some instances for hygiene reasons, garbage storage may be allotted to a different area of the kitchen. As for household cleaning supplies, speak to your interior designer to set this up in your under-sink cabinet too.
3. Food Storage Zone
The last zone of the kitchen triangle is the food storage zone which was considered to be the refrigerator. However, this is just one aspect of food storage i.e. wet storage.
Now, dry storage units are also to be considered as part of the kitchen work triangle. This could comprise the cabinet spaces where you store dry ingredients like rice, pasta, flour and other packaged food items.
In the cooking process, the preparation of the ingredients is a major step. A large countertop space needs to be kept free to chop vegetables, roll out the dough, or mix ingredients. This area must have easy access to your knives, chopping boards, and measuring cups to ensure maximal comfort.
Newer zone additions out of the work triangle which can be incorporated into a general kitchen design:
5.Non-food Storage Zone
Many kitchens have display units installed in the wall cabinets for china, silverware, crystal dining ware, or just cookbooks. While this may not be an integral part of the work triangle, it is based entirely on client requirements.
A few clients choose to keep a small dining table within their kitchen space as a breakfast nook. While this lies outside the work triangle, it would be wise to ensure that the path from your countertop to the dining zone is free of traffic.
Our top tip would be to work closely with your interior designer to mark out your priorities when it comes to your workflow in the kitchen. Whether you want to strictly adhere to the concept of the kitchen work triangle or tweak it to your personal needs is a matter of your discretion. This may be a tried-and-tested concept but the newer modifications allow you to create a more customised blueprint for your kitchen.
The humble crockery unit is a design staple in most Indian homes- here’s why you need one too!
Over the years, several new trends have surfaced and been phased out, but one design staple in the kitchen or dining space is the crockery unit. The crockery unit design has seen minor alterations to get with the times and went from being large and vintage in style to the modern small crockery units, suitable even for compact spaces. One thing is for sure- this trend is timeless, and it’s here to stay.
Why a crockery unit is a must-have
Here are a few reasons why you most definitely should get a crockery unit:
- A great place to beautifully display your fancy china, crockery, and cutlery, especially those used for when you are hosting a fancy gathering at home
- Added functionality of storing the crockery when not in use
- Drawers and cabinet doors in these crockery units can conceal frequently used tableware like runners, placemats, and coasters
- Enhances the design element of your kitchen or dining space, when well arranged
- Can have attractive light fittings acting as a supplementary decorative light source in the kitchen or the space it is installed
Types of crockery unit designs
If you’ve started hunting for crockery unit design ideas, you’d know that there are so many options to choose from. Every home fits the crockery unit in a different place, mounts them differently and the style of each one varies. It is important to find a customized crockery unit unique to your space that fulfills your functional, storage, and aesthetic requirements all at once.
In terms of location where it is fitted-
1.Crockery unit design for kitchen
For people with spacious kitchens, it makes sense to incorporate the crockery unit into your kitchen design. Bespoke Decor can advise you on how to do this easily to guarantee superior aesthetics, functionality, and storage.
2. Crockery unit design for the dining area
There are many people who prefer placing their crockery unit in the dining area instead of the kitchen. This is a wonderful option for those who have smaller kitchens and would still like a space to display and store fancy crockery.
3. Floor-to-ceiling crockery unit acting as a partition between living and dining spaces
Newer interior designs have embraced units that are multi-functional and one such example is a partition crockery unit. In this modern variation of a crockery unit, two rooms are separated by a floor-to-ceiling crocker unit which helps conserve space while serving the purposes of functionality and aesthetics. Reach out to Bespoke Decor to create something similar in your space.
In terms of mounting/position-
1.In-built modular kitchen crockery unit
In most modular kitchen designs, there is a space allotted for a crockery unit to display fancy dinnerware. This unit is inbuilt into your modular kitchen design, thereby fitting flawlessly and adding to the aesthetics of the overall kitchen space.
2. Wall-mounted crockery unit
A wall-mounted crockery unit is a wonderful option for those who want to conserve floor space but still want an impressive display. It can also be coupled with a buffet unit on the bottom.
3. Freestanding crockery unit
This is a common sight when crockery units are placed in the dining space. Keep in mind that there is a risk of these types of units toppling over, posing a safety hazard. They may be modified into sideboard styles to add to storage space while looking like an extension of the dining table.
In terms of style-
1.Display shelves or glass doors with few concealed units
The most common variety out there, most crockery units are partly concealed and have glass-clad or open shelving with lighting installed for enhancing the display. There are several stunning ways that these display shelves can be styled and that is highly dependent on the client’s aesthetics.
2. Buffet and hutch cabinet
Another modification of the crockery unit best suited for vintage styles, it consists of two units- a lower buffet (for storage) and an upper hutch (for display).
3. Multifunctional crockery unit
An area of your crockery unit can be transformed to accommodate stations of your choice. While some people like converting it into a coffee station or a bar, others reserve it to become a bookshelf, showcase, or even a TV unit. The possibilities are endless.
4. Complete customised crockery unit
If none of these pick your fancy and you have a unique idea in mind, reach out to the experts at Bespoke Decor to create an absolutely customised crockery unit for you.
White, grey, and black kitchen ideas are all the rage now!
The mood that a modular kitchen set is predominantly decided by its tone and there’s no dearth of options when it comes to modular kitchen colour combinations. There’s so much to choose from- some want timeless classics, some want contemporary and some opt for futuristic.
Being in the industry for many years now, our experts at Bespoke Decor have felt a palpable shift in people switching their choice, more so in the past decade. There is a shift from luxury, vintage and classic styles with brown and white kitchen ideas to more simple, minimalistic, and modern black, white or grey kitchen ideas.
Let’s take a closer look at each one of these modern and popular colors and if you would consider using it to deck up your modular kitchen.
1. White Kitchen Ideas
For those who want to play it safe with a timeless classic, the white kitchen may work out best for you. It lends a clean and bright ambiance to the kitchen and works well with most accent colors. However, it would be more challenging in terms of kitchen cleaning and maintenance.
There are three ways you could proceed with a white kitchen:
- All white
An all-white kitchen is a bold choice that has the ability to look straight out of a catalog. Right from the cabinets, countertops, dado tiles, appliances to the lighting and kitchen accessories, keep everything white. An ultimate simple yet minimalistic design dream!
- Black and white kitchen ideas
The black and white kitchen is a timeless classic and a favorite amongst clients. If solid black is a little too out of your comfort zone, then opt for marble with dark black veining instead. This can style your countertops and even extend the marble to tiles or backsplash.
- White and a pop of color
Offset white with pastel shades or organic earthy tones and bring in a pop of green with plants or an herb garden if you’re in the mood for a neutral palate. For something absolutely experimental, opt for kitchen accessories, cabinets, and countertop styling with loud colors like yellow, blue, or even metallics.
2. Grey Kitchen Ideas
Grey has slowly inched its way into contemporary Indian homes and is booming in popularity, owing to its simple yet minimalistic charm. The cool tones of grey modular kitchens are on a different page from the usually warm-toned Indian kitchen. Keep it classic with grey and white color combinations or opt for the more savvy grey-yellow, grey-pastel pink, or grey-turquoise combos.
3. Black Kitchen Ideas
And finally comes Black. Black has always emerged as a winner for those families who want a bold yet beautiful modern modular kitchen idea. Black and white designs may be the classic, but black also works equally well with contrasting shades. Our favorite is the black-orange color combination.

Things to consider when you want to maintain an ‘edge’ over the rest!
Until you actually begin taking an interest and getting involved in the kitchen design, remodel or renovation process, it is quite easy to overlook just how many details go into creating the perfect kitchen. One of these details happens to be the kitchen countertop edges.
Kitchen countertops themselves come in so many different materials ranging from the commonly seen granite and quartz to the premium Corian and ceramic countertops which can significantly raise the aesthetics (and kitchen prices too)! There are both single molding and double molding varieties available when it comes to countertops too.
Did you know that there are 20+ types of kitchen countertop edges to choose from? Let’s take a look at the form of all the different edge types available:
Simple kitchen countertop edges with defined lines and angles-
These options are the ones that are commonly spotted and are considerably easier to clean and maintain due to their defined profiles. They are preferred in modern and futuristic styles of kitchens.
Contemporary style offering clean lines and angles, making it versatile when it comes to adapting to different kitchen designs especially modern modular kitchens. This is one of the most commonly spotted designs of countertop edges and suits most materials and thickness of countertops. While it remains a straight edge, it must be noted that there is just a slight rounding of the edges to prevent damages and injuries.
2. ¼ Bevel Edge
The contemporary design of kitchen countertop edge whose pointed bevel edge lends clean lines to overall kitchen design. This lends a dimension of shape, but while using clean lines. This matches all countertop materials, too.
3. ½ Bevel Edge
A variation of the above with a more dramatic beveled edge. This type of countertop proves to be protective of the lower kitchen cabinets as water can flow off without contact, making it a functional and aesthetically-pleasing choice, all at once.
4. Bevel Top & Bottom
Suave and stylish with defined angles, this variation of countertop edge has a 45° angle on both its upper and lower edges. It highlights the material it is set in beautifully, no matter what it is.
5. 1” Bevel
This is a dramatic and highly tapered style of edge featuring an elongated slope of a 1” bevel. This is the most preferred choice of edge for kitchen islands. They share the functionality of other beveled variations in protecting the lower cabinets from water damage.
Simple kitchen countertop edges that are rounded-
The rounded edge is reminiscent of traditional styles and would suit a vintage style of kitchen. These options are easy to clean owing to their profile and lack of grooves. They are generally preferred for high-traffic areas when compared to the angled alternatives to prevent unwanted injuries.
6. ¼ Round Edge
Simplistic in nature, this ¼ round edge is a popular choice in most kitchens. Its curve gives the illusion of increased thickness of the kitchen countertop.
7. Round Top & Bottom
With a ¼ rounded cut from both the top and bottom, this countertop edge offers some definition with subtlety.
8. ½ Bullnose
With a slight curve on the countertop edge’s upper surface and boasting a straight edge on the bottom, the ½ Bullnose edge allows water to slide off counters without affecting lower cabinets. This style also draws attention to the slab thickness.
9. Full Bullnose
The ultimate rounded edge featuring curves from both the top and the bottom. It lends a beautiful timeless appearance to the kitchen and is free of any sharp corners.
10. Demi Bullnose
Flat on the bottom portion with a curve going back a little farther on the countertop than other variations is the demi bullnose style. It is aesthetic and functional- it keeps water from touching the lower cabinets in the event of a spill.
Intricate kitchen countertop edges-
While these kitchen countertop options look very beautiful owing to the level of detail they possess, their intricate grooves and ridges make them harder to clean and maintain.
The basic variations of these intricate edges include:
14. Double Bullnose
16. Stair Tread
A combination of a few of these variations create more intricate edges like the Cove Dupont, Ogee Bull and Cove Ogee.

Recreate the luxurious opulence of a wooden kitchen with the exclusive 5-piece veneer finish
Nostalgia finds an easy place in the kitchen. Just imagine your grandmother’s recipe – carefully passed on from generation to generation – that makes the smells and tastes and flavours of your childhood just come alive! The right kitchen finish can create a charmingly quaint atmosphere that perfectly complements the sweet moments of reminiscence that you create in your kitchen.
Wooden interiors have always been the ultimate symbol of classy opulence. A wood veneer kitchen cabinet finish offers the same aura of warmth and old-school grandeur, while still continuing to offer the conveniences and efficiency of modern kitchens. Read on to learn more about the ultimate vintage luxury finish.
Wood veneers are created by sticking thin slices of natural wood onto the base material or substrate using polymer glue and a hot press. This finish is particularly popular as it can recreate the rich look and the feel of solid wood.
The 5-piece veneers are structured together using a constructive framework that makes them stronger, classier and more durable. They are lightweight and look very aesthetic with their warm wood finish. But unlike solid wood, they are far more durable and resistant to the ravages of heat, moisture and changing weather. The 5-piece wood veneer is also easier to clean and maintain, making it a great finishing option for a modern luxury kitchen.
Veneer vs Mica
While choosing kitchen finish options, people often wind up comparing laminates vs veneer. Laminates or Sun Mica, as they’re commonly known, are a common kitchen finish that is quite popular today. Laminates are artificial finishes that have sheets of plastic or resin glued on to the base material under specific heat and pressure conditions. They provide a low-maintenance and durable kitchen finish that is also quite budget-friendly.
Wood Veneers are created by a process quite similar to how the laminates are created. But the difference between veneer and laminate is immediately apparent in the look, feel and aesthetics of the final result. While wood veneer kitchen cabinets shine with their rich and natural wood finish, laminates sometimes tend to make kitchen shutters look cheap and artificial.
But of course, the superior quality and aesthetics come at a price. Veneer laminate cost is usually higher than sun mica cost. The exceptional kitchen shutter design with the 5-piece wood veneer definitely costs more than the average laminate finish. But if you’re looking to create a high-end luxury kitchen, then it is definitely worth investing your money in a finish that reflects the class and elegance you desire.
Ultimately, your kitchen must be designed to reflect your own tastes and personality. The 5-piece veneer is the perfect kitchen shutter finish if you’re looking to build a sophisticated luxury kitchen. It is reminiscent of the charming, vintage English shutters that make the kitchen a warm and welcoming space – perfect for a hot cup of tea and happy conversations.
Our experts at Bespoke Décor are always excited to help you design a kitchen to suit all of your unique tastes and needs. Do reach out to us and we’ll help you find the perfect kitchen for your dream home!
