ELLE DECOR India brings to you 7 kitchens that cook up a feast for the eyes. Prepare to be floored by kitchens that serve up style with a side of sumptuousness. 

Classic with a twist by Aavishkar Architects

Aavishkar Architects have whipped up a light, bright and fluffy kitchen, with Smeg appliances that look like little specks of red food colouring, blending timeless and classic neutrals with modern pops. This kitchen is adorned with decor elements that the homeowner has collected over the years in her travels across the world. The homeowner’s love for a personal touch is clearly visible in the fridge ornamented in fridge magnets and family pictures. All in all, Aavishkar Architects have created a kitchen that is perfect for spending a cosy afternoon baking for loved ones.

Sukoon by Concreate Story

Just like the balance between the homeowners, one from Hyderabad and one who is North Indian, this kitchen is a balance in modern Scandinavian design and traditional Indian copper utensils and achaar barnis. Placed in Noida, it brings in a pinch of traditional Indian elements to an ultra-modern cityscape. As the name suggests, this kitchen designed by Concreate Story, with its clean lines, minimalistic decor and breathable materials, provides its homeowners with plenty of sukoon in a constantly humming city.

A klutter-free kitchen by Kinaaya Design Studio

With little space to work with, Kanya Samay, principal architect at Kinaaya Design Studio, set out to create a kitchen that is minimal and clutter-free. The colour of oak not only gives the room a clean look but also a certain freshness, especially when paired with the beautiful blue-grey. The herringbone tiles break the monotony, moving away from plain straight lines to add some diagonal fun. Although compact, the design makes it so that the kitchen has ample storage.

Greysfully done by Scavolini

With a legacy of more than 60 years and now retailing at Dash Square, here in India, Scavolini paints kitchens with a novel touch, making industrial look fresh. They maintain the perfect balance of being modern with the harsh greys and yet finding space for softness as well. 

This first kitchen has a soothing grey palette, juxtaposed with the pops of the pretty pink trolley, pink lamps and lush green plants. The second kitchen may yet be grey and modern but it makes plenty of space for nature, with a massive skylight, which makes the room look spacious, airy and bright.

Flavourfully functional by SR Design Aesthetic

The most important thing a kitchen can be is functional and this one is just that. Designed by Shukdeo and Kajol Rana, principal designers at SR Design Aesthetic, the entire kitchen is linear in nature, with its three sides featuring counters and storage units that extend to the ceiling.

Functional this kitchen may be, but that doesn’t mean it compromises on design flair. Deep navy tones are juxtaposed against a primarily monochrome palette of grey cabinets with Caesarstone as a backsplash. The accent colour chosen here — a captivating navy blue that draws one’s eyes in — creates a sense of calm and sophistication. 

Garnish with green by Studio Bloom

Shine bright like a diamond. Err! An emerald with this green kitchen. Verdant and lush— these are the first words that come to mind when one looks at this kitchen. “The bold colour choices add personality and depth, while the combination of textures and finishes ensures a visually stimulating experience,” says Rutuja Tulsulkar, principal architect at Studio Bloom. Located in the heart of Mumbai with a breathtaking view of the Arabian Sea, this kitchen brings nature inside the space itself. It’s gotten us green with envy, if we do say so ourselves.
