 The plants added vibrancy to this kitchen

This small kitchen has been made keeping in mind a typical Indian kitchen. This means that it has as much space as it can maximise on. Interior designer Rishabh Jain had a lot of space to work with, given that this kitchen wasn’t small. However, it was poorly designed which took away the potential of its space. Thus, he changed it to a parallel kitchen. Moreover, he converted the adjoining balcony into a utility area. He also added a whole range of storage compartments to increase the storage space and cater to different storage needs of a growing family.
