TURN­ING THE KITCHEN INTO A LUX­URY EN­VI­RON­MENT IS ALL ABOUT ADAPT­ING TO SPACE,

India Today - - BRAND - SAYS VAROON P. ANAND

At the heart of ev­ery kitchen is a tri­an­gle. It doesn’t mat­ter what floor plan you pick, u-shaped or l-shaped, you will find yourself work­ing be­tween three ba­sic points: The re­frig­er­a­tor, the stove, and the sink. The work tri­an­gle con­sists of a log­i­cal, er­gonomic ar­range­ment of these three work ar­eas to make kitchen work eas­ier and more ef­fi­cient. At a com­pany like Kohler, un­der­stand­ing this tri­fecta forms the foun­da­tion for ideas to ex­pand into lux­ury when we con­sider how to add com­fort and func­tion­al­ity into the ar­range­ment. For in­stance, a real lux­ury in to­day’s world is be­ing able to spend more time with loved ones even as you cook; as cook­ing be­comes more of a com­mu­nal ac­tiv­ity kitchens ex­pand to ac­com­mo­date this trend. Some even have space for two cooks, each with their own com­pli­men­tary tri­an­gu­lar plan to work to­gether si­mul­ta­ne­ously. The feel of a truly lux­ury kitchen means one where stor­age trumps style. So adapt by pick­ing smaller paired doors for cab­i­netry, rather than larger sin­gle doors that can swing out to cre­ate ob­sta­cles. Once you’ve un­der­stood the space, and your culi­nary and di­etary needs, be­gin to look at the aes­thetic com­po­nents to round out and per­son­alise your kitchen. Let’s take a look at some of the ideas that add beauty to your kitchen en­vi­ron­ment.
