If there is one thing that we can all agree on, it’s that no space is as important as the kitchen. Whether you are a gourmet food connoisseur or someone who can barely make Maggi, — nobody can do without a well-designed kitchen! But with modern apartments getting smaller and smaller, large kitchens have become a rarity. So is it possible to make a small kitchen design Indian style look spacious? We say it is! 

Don’t believe us, see for yourself. Here are 10 stunning small modular kitchen designs for small kitchens from Livspace homes that are under 100 sq ft in size. But good things come in small packages and these stunning kitchens prove that.

Small Modular Kitchen Design #1: From L-shaped to C-shaped design

To create more usable space, our designer Aparna Ganesh broke the RCC lofts in this kitchen. She also removed the existing L-shaped counters, more than enough space for a C-shaped counter that increases the work area immensely

What makes this kitchen design for small house special?

This small kitchen design Indian style had one big requirement — it had to fit in 3 cooks! Keeping in mind the need for this extra counter space, our design team added a counter near the windowsill. So much space packed into such a small kitchen! Also, the parallel layout perfectly fits the longish aisle like space available for this kitchen.

#3: Best use of light colours & ample storage in 65 sq. ft. kitchen

What makes this kitchen design for small space special?

This kitchen is tiny, but looks spacious — and it’s all because of the colour palette. When you have a small space, remember that light colours can open up a room and make it look big. This is the thumb rule that Livspace designer Sakshi Gupta followed. We can see that ample use of white in the counters and floor makes the kitchen look big. She also fit in open-and-closed storage racks, wicker baskets, spice racks etc so that the family would never run out of storage space!

What makes this kitchen design for small space special?

This happy and summery Pune kitchen originally had a very cramped layout. While retaining the parallel layout (perfect for a small kitchen design Indian style), our designer added an extra utility area at the end of the kitchen. This not only increased the visual length of the kitchen but also added more functional area for prepping and cooking.

Small Kitchen Design Ideas #5: Maximum Use of Vertical Wall Space

When space is scarce, we say go vertical! If you are looking for Indian style kitchen design images, you MUST bookmark this! The best feature of this kitchen is the way the entire wall space has been used for cabinetry, which creates the illusion of a high ceiling. The subtle colour combination of light and dark wood further helps to open up the space.

What makes this small modular kitchen special?

While Indian food is just delicious, it tends to leave some unsightly stains! This small kitchen design Indian style in Bangalore was specially created keeping this in mind. While the white colour palette makes the kitchen look big, designer Charul Lodha kept the colour of the lower cabinets dark as a preventive measure against the infamous Indian curry stains or oil spills. The cabinetry also has anti-scratch acrylic finish so that the owners can clean away to their heart’s content! The Moroccan tiles backsplash is perfect against oil splashes. Unlike natural stones, quartz is non-porous and totally resistant to stains. Hence, the countertop is so easy to maintain even if it is white!
