A complete guide to the cost of kitchen interiors in India for different types of homes, needs and preferences.
The kitchen is the heart of your home. It is the place where you spend the most precious time, cooking meals for your family and friends. So, having a functional kitchen where all your cooking appliances, cookware and supplies are within easy reach makes your culinary experience easy and comfortable. But with modern-day cramped apartments, having the lavish kitchen of your dreams can be difficult. So, modular kitchens come to a great rescue in elevating the functionality of kitchens in any size or shape.
Modular kitchens not just make your kitchen look sleek and elegant but bring out extra storage and display spaces from places you wouldn’t have imagined. But every good thing comes with a price tag, and this stops most of us from thinking of our dream kitchen interiors. So, we at DesignCafe have brought you a complete breakdown of the cost of kitchen interiors so you get a fair idea about the expected budget you should be ready with before taking the leap towards your dream kitchen. So, get ready to dive into some stunning kitchen interiors.
Before getting into the cost details, let’s discuss the factors on which the cost of kitchen interiors depends.
- Kitchen Size: A large kitchen will require more modules compared to a small kitchen; thus, the cost will be higher than a large kitchen.
- Kitchen Layout: If you have very less usable space in your kitchen, you may want to maximise the storage and functionality. Then the cost will be higher even for a small kitchen. For example, a simple kitchen with basic shutter units and drawers will cost lesser than a kitchen with smart features like magic corners for deep storage.
- Personal Preferences: If you love cooking and preparing meals for your friends and family on a daily basis, you will need a functional kitchen with ample storage and free flow movement.
- Materials & Finishes: A kitchen designed with laminates is comparatively less expensive than acrylic or lacquered glass cabinets.
To give you a fair idea, we have divided the cost structure into three broad points for you to get a better understanding.
Cost Of Budget-Friendly Kitchen Interiors
If you are looking for a budget kitchen interior cost, you can expect somewhere around INR 1.5 lakhs to 2 lakhs. Your kitchen will be designed with basic laminates. The wall unit can be a combination of shuttered cabinets, box cabinet units and open shelves. The base unit can have a wire basket drawer with organisers and tandem drawers beneath, an oil pull-out and a dustbin pull-out. You can also add some space-saving mechanisms like an S-carousel and D-carousel to add a stylish look while utilising your kitchen space to the maximum but will cost you a little extra.

Cost Of Mid-Range Kitchen Interiors
If you are looking for slightly fancy kitchen interiors, the mid-range kitchen interiors are perfect for you. In this, you choose acrylic or high gloss for your kitchen cabinets. Both are easy to maintain and lend a rich look. You can expect some overhead cabinets with frosted glass shutters to lend a classy look to your kitchen instead of the regular ones. The base unit in this range will comprise tandem drawers, oil pull-outs, dustbin pull-out, carousel units and shuttered cabinets. The mid-range kitchen interior design cost with the above-mentioned amenities will be somewhere around INR 2.5 lakhs to 3.15 lakhs.

Cost Of High-End Kitchen Interiors In India
