Modular kitchens in India are also inspired by Vastu shastra, the epic and ultimate manuscript for home architecture. You can arrange your modular kitchen as per the rules described in vastu shastra and bring in a lot of positivity and creative energy in your kitchen. There are predefined locations for placing the sinks, water storage, food storage, fire/gas stove, cabinets etc in the vastu shastra to promote effective organization and use of the kitchen.
With the pantries complete, we moved onto the floor. We wanted a large size subway tile in a dark grey that was easy to care for and still felt modern. We found the perfect match the perfect match at Home Depot and then came home as well as watched about 45 minutes of how-to videos.
As with all renovation work, when you demo something, you uncover other problems. As we removed our old vinyl flooring, most of the subfloor came up with it. Once the vinyl was up, we had to head back to Home Depot for new subfloor. In total, we spent about $700 on flooring materials.
Warm and cozy, this kitchen fits well into small spaces. With an oven and stove aligned to the right, the center has two lovely wooden countertops paired with matching chairs. Incorporating plumbing and lots of open shelves at the bottom to show off your china collection, the soft white kitchen is a great place to have an afternoon coffee with a friend.
They are also a statement piece in the kitchen and a big investment. We went with Silestone – a mix of natural quartz and other raw materials -- in Blanco Maple, a white color with varying grey flecks. Once the counters were in -- literally 6 days after we paid for them -- we were able to install the backsplash.
Since our pantries were an uncommon size, we had no choice but to invest in custom doors. We found a great local store in our area that was able to accommodate our needs and for a very reasonable price. We paid about $575 per door. And, we were more than happy to support a small business in our town. We chose tiles that were on a mesh backing, making it easier to install the sheets than single tile, one at a time. Playing up the white and grey colors in the countertops, we chose a Grecian white interlocking tile, again keeping everything neutral but not sterile looking
We purchased 15 solid oak stair treads that we cut to the right size for each pantry. We spent about $360 on the stair treads and another $12 on polyurethane to seal them in their natural color. We also needed wood to create the base support for each shelf and spent about $150 on that.
