With a complete and handy kitchen pack, your kitchen indeed looks ideal

Our kitchen is affectionately dubbed the hub of the home. In the dictionary, a kitchen means a room or place equipped for cooking. Today, its role extends as an eating area, a cosy entertainment zone that is great for socialising, a thinking station where you plan your everyday activity and a playroom for children. In fact, it is one of the most-visited rooms of our home.

It is no longer just a confined room for food preparation and casual meals. With our busy lifestyles where we tend to spend less and less time cooking, the kitchen goes beyond that. A kitchen can be your home office where you enjoy a warm cup of coffee while balancing your monthly bills, or toss a salad over a great conversation with a friend.

The volume that gets enclosed in an architectural structure is just a tiny fraction of the vast amount of “universal space”. By universal space I mean the cosmos or the gigantic vastness in which our planet and all other planets, starts etc.. survive.

The volume, which gets contained in a building, varies according to the use of the building. A cinema theatre and a bedroom will surely have different purposes and hence volume. Volume gets defined by three factors, length, breadth and height of the habitable room.

In addition, if you have a partner who goes to bed earlier than you, make sure you have a light that shines away from him or her so that he or she can sleep while you read or watch TV in bed. Also, consider the placement of light behind you to reduce the annoying effect of shadows.
