It’s important to support your children and their ambitions and for Malu Chatterjee, this meant extending her kitchen to build a baking station for her daughter. She chose Livspace for her 3BHK flat kitchen remodel in Delhi and our designer, Divya Bhati took the challenge to do it.

Since storage is the primary necessity in every home, Malu also got her wardrobes and storage units replaced with new modular ones from Livspace. Malu praises the final finishing of her furniture and let’s find out why.

Malu’s 3BHK Flat Kitchen Remodel in Delhi

Like we mentioned, Malu’s daughter also uses her kitchen for baking, but her L-shaped kitchen wasn’t spacious enough for two people to work simultaneously. So Divya, our designer, hacked and reconstructed the new kitchen wall about 2 ft. away to make more space in the kitchen. Since this wall was shared by a powder bathroom that didn’t require as much space, her idea worked well.

The Colours in This 3BHK Flat Kitchen Remodel in Delhi

A muted colour scheme paired with fun, colourful backsplash for an interesting look

Since the rest of Malu’s 3BHK flat has muted warm colours, she wanted to maintain this consistency in her kitchen’s colour palette too. So she chose Irish cream matte-finished laminates for the bottom cabinets and gloss-finished white laminates for the upper ones.

But these muted colours are not left dull in this 3BHK flat kitchen remodel in Delhi; there are colourful dado tiles that break the mundane look. Additionally, even the brown granite countertop helps in uplifting the appearance of the kitchen by creating a pleasant transition from the plain cabinets to the backsplash tiles.

The Baking Zone for Malu’s Daughter

Since baking needs more than just counter space—it needs space for baking appliances and storage as well—Divya made sure that there was another set of modular storage units to keep baking essentials. As a result, she created a separate independent zone for Malu’s daughter. This way the daughter doesn’t need to go to the other side of the kitchen to retrieve her baking utensils.

Malu’s Bedroom Wardrobe Renovation in Delhi

The wardrobes are built to cover full walls and have lofts above them to provide as much storage space as possible. Furthermore, since it is common in Delhi to lose your furniture to the humidity, Divya made wardrobe carcasses from HDF-HMR (water-resistant) and shutter from MDF (most economical) sheets. What’s better is the European technology that we, at Livspace, use to make these panels in our factory. The laminates and edge bands are machine pressed to prevent moisture from entering these panels. This ensures our furniture lasts much longer while being affordable at the same time.
