Your kitchen is the heart of your home, so you'd best be shaping it up to be like one – concrete and beautiful. Given the space crunch in apartments today leave you just about enough room for a petite pantry area, a spectacular way to bring home the bacon (and literally too) is by incorporating a parallel kitchen design for your home.
Parallel kitchens, also known as galley kitchens, are modern kitchen design concepts where two kitchen platforms and crafty cabinets run parallel to one another. They're gaining popularity, especially with small apartment dwellers hand over fist.
Here are some marvellous parallel kitchen design ideas you could use to give your kitchen that extra jazz. Here we bring you the parallel kitchen designs from our design catalogue that are truly tantalising yet easy on the pocket.
This petit parallel kitchen is designed in a vibrant shade of Kingfisher blue laminates to jazz up your cooking area. The combination of floating shelves and cabinets with plain shutters provides ample space for storing and displaying all your cooking essentials. We have also added cabinets with frosted glass shutters on one side to showcase your favourite crockery items and jars which also break the monotony of solid colours. The base units have a hob unit with three wire basket drawers to arrange cutlery, pans and pots of different sizes and multiple pull-out units to organise all your cooking essentials in a clutter-free manner. The oil-pullout, shutter units and the mid tall unit also add to the functionality of the space. The top wire basket is designed with an in-built cutlery organiser to segregate items in a clutter free manner. The mid tall unit provides extra storage space for pantry and frequently used items. The top of the midtall unit can be used as a base for the microwave/ovens.
To complete the look, we have added a funky tiled backsplash. This parallel kitchen is cost-effective, functional and perfect for smart home dwellers who love to add fun and liveliness to their kitchen area.
