Not long after we were married, we bought a house in a great area that an architect had designed for himself and his family. We loved it - very Frank Lloyd Wright, with lots of land. So began the adventure. Having just moved into our new home, we came to the conclusion that the kitchen definitely needed to be redone - yes, the kitchen interior design project was on.
We had the contractors start the parade - looking at the layout of the kitchen and the cabinet construction, the overall construction of the house and the kitchen in particular. The bids came in - slowly at first and then in a deluge. The prices were astounding. This was in the early 1980's and the low bid was $12,000, and that was for a new sink, paint and "new cabinet facings" (new doors on the existing cabinets!) Now the house was not inexpensive, but these prices were out of sight! Times were much like today, many people out of work and contracts were few and far between.
In a small kitchen colour can be very important, this is because bright colours can make your kitchen seem much larger than it truly is. However having a single shade of colour can easily ruin the kitchen. This is because the kitchen needs to fit the rest of the home, and if your home gives and antique feeling then the kitchen should to. What I would do is, add a bit of patterns to your kitchen walls and make it match with the rest of the house. Remember the kitchen is the heart of the home so it should also match the exterior.
Apart from this, another factor that you may come across while browsing the best interior design websites, is a clever use of color for kitchens. Though in the western society there is a propensity of using white as a standard color for the kitchen cabinets, keeping in mind the Indian way of preparing food and all the spices and oil we use while cooking that may not be the best idea. Using a darkish color, preferably the wood colored cabinets is a better idea in the Indian context.
Another way to utilize space is to outfit blind corners with storage devices such as a Lazy Susan or something called a cookware caddie. Kitchen drawers can be fitted with dividers or full extension glides to make use of their space efficiently as well.
