The concept of a designer kitchen that we have in our heads is essentially flawed. There is just one reason for it; we assume that a kitchen done by a designer cannot be in the budget kitchen’s category. Let’s help you look past this misconception and set the standards straight. Even a designer kitchen could cost you less than ₹4 lakh. 

To prove our point, we have curated a list of the most popular Livspace kitchens that come under the budget category. 

Best Budget Kitchens #1: Classic Two-toned Kitchen

Place: Bengaluru
Size: 100 sq. ft.
Budget: ₹3-4 lakhs

This Livspace kitchen in a Bengaluru duplex is rather spacious and airy. We have furnished it with white wall cabinets and grey base cabinets in high-gloss laminate finish. And guess what? Our designer managed to fit in tall units as well in a budget of under ₹3 lakhs! However, the real stunner in this kitchen are the white backsplash tiles set in herringbone pattern. Additionally, there is a serving window here that opens into the dining area.

Place: Ghaziabad
Size: 70 sq. ft.
Budget: ₹2-3 lakhs

Grey and white is a colour combination that never really goes out of fashion. No wonder Sushmita and Faizan, a pet-parents to two dogs and a cat, were keen on it. Our designer suggested breaking down the closed kitchen in favour of an open layout. This allowed the design team to fit in a breakfast counter with a concealed bar unit within this compact kitchen. But, the aesthetic highlight of this kitchen are the floral etched backsplash tiles.

Place: Bengaluru
Size: 70 sq. ft.
Budget: ₹2-3 lakhs

This Livspace kitchen in Bengaluru is as tiny as they come. But our designer has worked wonders with it. The two-toned kitchen comes with plenty of storage in wooden-textured membrane finish. As this kitchen has some decent vertical height, the designer has used it to provide end-to-end lofts. Also, the cabinets are packed with accessories.

Place: Dwarka, Delhi
Size: 100 sq. ft.
Budget: ₹3-4 lakhs

The kitchen is a functional space and hence, the focus must be on its usability. This family in Dwarka, for example, has many enthusiastic chefs. And their kitchen can accommodate them all. Our design team has furnished this kitchen so ergonomically that everything is within reach. Adding to this convenience is the sleek beauty of the membrane finish cabinets.

Place: Pune
Size: 170 sq.ft.
Budget: ₹3-4 lakhs

This 3-year old Pune kitchen was coming apart but we have renovated it to be as good as new! What is great about this kitchen? It has a glossy acrylic finish for starters. But the real challenge was to accommodate semi-modular furnishings into this space that fit it without a whisker.
