In continuation with the series of posts on my interior designing , I will show the bedroom and kitchen in this post . You can view previous posts here and here .
The Bedroom : Brown, coffee and white .
These are sliding doors with printed laminates used on plywood. I cannot open and show it to you. I have kept the old TV in the centre cupboard . If I want to watch, I just need to slide the mirror door . I used sliding doors to save the door opening space but unfortunately I cannot use back of the door to hang my purses as I used to do in the previous house . There is another balcony that opens from the bedroom but that's not well maintained yet ....lot of stuff is dumped there which I am not sure when will I sort out .
The Master bed is store bought but the sleek night stand on my side and a computer table on his side of the bed are custom made matching with the cupboard . I still need to decorate more but may keep it less cluttered .
There is a bay window on my side . I try to keep my bedroom clean as it looks here .
My mother strongly disagrees :)
The other two people , out of fear and trepidation , choose not to comment :)
The Kitchen : Purple , cream and grey .
This is the left side of the kitchen platform . We got shutter and hydraulic shelves and push to open and every other kitchen trolley types that I could see in the stores and model apartments . It was difficult to procure some individual items like shutter because usually they do the entire modular kitchen .
This is the left corner which is inaccessible to me so I got it made as a display corner with glass shelves and glass doors . Getting these glass doors fit in an L-shape corner was a bit difficult . Please ignore the dangling wires they are from a water purifier inside the top cupboard . We have not yet decided how to adjust those. I still need to hang the crochet lace I made and posted about it here . I will hang it beneath the L shape display corner but I haven't got enough matching hooks yet .
This is the front kitchen platform . Usually this side of the platform gets cleaned twice a day as I cook here but the left side I showed you gets cluttered as I keep on stacking things there .
This is a designer chimney . I loved it when I saw . I did not want the traditional rectangular one as I always felt I might bang my head on it while cooking :)
This is the opposite of the front platform . The top is fully covered with loft .This time I got built-in Microwave and Oven . Earlier I had a counter top oven . All the three - Chimney, oven and microwave are of same company , KAFF . They are good . I haven't made cake yet, but I have baked biscuits and pizzas .
The glass cupboard in the centre was meant for keeping decorative things and recipe books but I ended up keeping some daily use crockery . I have plans to shuffle things again .The work table is just a pull out (you can see , it was just a sleek line in the previous picture ) where I sort vegetables and do other miscellaneous tasks like when taking out something from oven, I can easily keep the dish on it as it is nearest .
This is the old refrigerator which coincidentally matched with ovens and the wooden laminates . This is not a built-in one , therefore , not advisable to fix in a cabinet . So an ample amount of space is left on all the sides for the generated heat .
While the top space was fine , the front two sides were closed with 3 inches wide flaps . This is good when I want to clean the space around it .
The kitchen towel dispensers which I found on internet were either not of good quality or were a combo of foil and cling film dispenser which did not fit on any wall space of kitchen . So I used the leftover curtain rod and with the fittings, it made a convenient low-cost (almost no cost) holder :)
All of these laminates, in the bedroom and kitchen, are textured. They are a bit difficult to clean but I have seen that glossy ones loose their gloss after few years even though they are easy to clean . I get lot of sunlight in the kitchen and it was difficult to take pics but since it wasn't glossy so that was fine .
Next post in this series would be the last and heavenly place - 'The craft room' :) It is small , but I am sure you will like . So wait and watch my space here .
I am about to start a big and important assignment from tomorrow . Raj has done his part , now its my part to be done . If everything goes fine , it will be done in a week's time . Wish me luck :)
Thank you for seeing !!
Have a great week ahead!!
