Give Your Home All The Space It Needs

What do Mumbaikars want more than a vada pav or a seat on a local train? Space!  As the city of dreams grows with opportunity each day, so do its property rates. And a big consequence of urban development is shrinking apartments. This is why space-saving designs never go out of trend in a city like Mumbai. The idea is to make optimum use of dead spaces in your home so it appears more spacious. An enclosed balcony can double up as a study corner, vertical kitchens, or murphy beds that go fold into the wall when not in use. Pick a colour palette smartly to make your space look brighter.

Kitchens For Mumbaikars

Two-toned kitchens have been in vogue for a while now with Mumbaikars and we don’t see this changing anytime soon! The trick is choosing a dark shade for cabinets at the bottom and a lighter tone for overhead storage. However, if you prefer a single colour, opt for tropical colours like turquoise, aqua coral or add a bold statement with black. A white kitchen is an evergreen choice. However, Design Cafe’s alchemists will tell you how much Mumbaikars appreciate black and tropical colours for their kitchens, even for studio apartments. However, opt for an L-shaped or an open modular kitchen design. These designs work best for small to medium kitchen spaces as they add volume, especially in modest-sized homes.

A Pop Of Design

Place large potted plants in those nooks or smaller ones on side tables and countertops. A Mumbaikar’s heart is intrinsically vintage  that explains the love for antiques and decor from yesteryears.
