The kitchen is one of the most important parts of any house construction and design. No matter your architectural style, a kitchen will decide the rest of the house layout. However, many people need to learn this and still create kitchen designs that are not only old but are obsolete and no longer functional.
This includes using the old kitchen style, the inefficient use of space, material selection and heating dissipation, which is crucial for a functional kitchen.
Today’s blog will address how to upgrade your kitchen design and make it modern in sync with 2023 modern designs. We will also discuss the smaller details and materials you can choose to improve your kitchen experience and show it to your guests.
Open Kitchen Style
If you are new to the kitchen design tutorial, you should know that kitchens in Pakistan are traditionally separated from the rest of the house. It is usually only used for cooking and has little to do with the presentation & serving of the food. We don’t invite guests to see our kitchen because it is not built that way.
However, with the influence of modern designs and inspiration from the Western housing style, many households in Pakistan are adopting this open kitchen design.
In an open kitchen, the separation between the house dining and other areas is absent, and one can see what happens in the kitchen. This is a great style and is popular among posh kitchen style lovers.
Kitchen with efficient ventilation
One of the favours you can give to your house helps, and women is making your kitchen well-ventilated and efficient. A poorly built kitchen may cause suffocation and increase heat accumulation in the kitchen, which is not suitable for the appliances.
One modern solution is to ensure horizontal windows that look beautiful and efficiently remove heat. This can be achieved by installing stylish and energy-efficient heat removers such as exhaust fans and over-the-stove fume hoods to redirect the smoke away from the whole kitchen setup.
You can also install better double mesh doors to keep insects away. A range hood or other suitable ventilation system can also effectively circulate fresh air and prevent the buildup of harmful gases. Another option is to utilise reflective surfaces and light-coloured materials for countertops and walls, which can help dissipate heat and create a more comfortable cooking environment.
Kitchen with Geometrical Fixture
Another kitchen trend that is gaining popularity in Lahore is the incorporation of geometrical fixtures. This is an excellent way to give your kitchen a modern touch. Consider upgrading your kitchen shelves, rugs, and lighting fixtures to elevate your space. You can even opt for trendy wall clocks and other wall-hanging accessories to enhance the overall look of your kitchen.
Another way to add a modern touch to your kitchen is by creatively displaying your potted houseplants. Hang them in a corner of your cooking space and make them a part of your ultramodern geometrical decor. Make sure you use fixtures of different shapes and designs that align perfectly with your theme. To add more character to your kitchen, consider adding retro chairs and round tables to your setup.
Bins, Sink, Dishwasher Style
Usually, a kitchen is designed so that the working person has access to appliances, dishwasher and door, but in the modern style of kitchen, the focus is now changed from this to the “BINS, SINK, DISHWASHER”.
This type of kitchen is considered more open, accessible, less congested and eco-friendly as the person has everything in a range while cooking. The bins, sink, and dishwasher are strategically placed within arm’s reach, making it easier to dispose of waste, wash dishes, and clean up after cooking. This layout promotes efficiency and reduces the need for excessive movement around the kitchen, allowing for a more seamless cooking experience. Additionally, this design choice aligns with eco-friendly practices by encouraging proper waste management and water conservation.
If you are considering renovating or constructing your kitchen as per the modern style, you need an expert and the architectural services in Lahore to ensure you get the quality. A kitchen is undoubtedly the most important in a house, and it must not be done by someone new to this field. So always find a trusted architect who can deliver what they promise.
