kitchen cabinets VC Interiors

Cabinetry is usually not given that much importance compared to the other structural elements of a kitchen. However, at VC Interiors, our interior designers conduct thorough research on kitchen cabinetry materials as they take up a substantial amount of your kitchen remodelling or building budget. Cabinets are one of the most used items in a kitchen and they need to be in good shape and durable in order for them to be functional. Therefore, at VC Interiors, we try to bring style as well as functionality when we choose kitchen cabinet materials for clients.

Normally, most interior designers go for solid wood when it comes to materials used in their residences. However, a major disadvantage to using solid wood is that they expand and contract over time. This does not make them the ideal material for kitchen cabinets, countertops, flooring, etc. At VC Interiors, we use engineered wood products as they are much more durable, reliable and affordable. Some of the other materials we use are medium-density fiberboard (MDF), plywood, hardwood, stainless steel, etc. Following are some of the materials we use and how they can benefit your kitchen cabinets.

  1. MDF or Medium Density Fiberboard

MDF is made from wood fibres that are recycled along with the resin. It is a high-grade composite material that is milled under high pressure. They come in one-piece frames with a centre cut out for the recessed panel. It is a dense and heavy material that has resembles the material used by IKEA for their various kitchen items. One of the reasons why they are preferred is because they are super resistant to cracking and peeling. They can also be easily painted over enabling you to change the entire look of your cabinets as and when you want. The MDF material is also smoother when compared to plywood.

  • Plywood

Over the past few years, plywood has become a popular choice of kitchen cabinet material among manufacturers. This is mainly because of the low cost of plywood. Another great benefit of this material is that it is more resistant to moisture than MDF giving more stability. Plywood boards are made by glueing wood piles on top of each other. For added protection, there is a plastic laminate coating, wood veneer or thermofoil coating.

  • Particleboard

Particleboard is the least conventional material when it comes to kitchen cabinet construction. They are made by combining wood chips and particles with an adhesive which is then fused together to make panels. This is not generally preferred because it does not offer stability. It’s made with shards of wood and the only thing holding everything in place is the glue. However, it is cheaper than plywood making it a good option for low-budget kitchen remodelling.

  • Stainless Steel

Stainless steel gives your kitchen a contemporary and minimalistic look. It is mostly used in professional kitchens. However, it has a major disadvantage. It is very difficult to clean scratches and fingerprints. But it does not contract or expand like wood making it suitable for places with a lot of moisture content.

  • Hardwood

Hardwood is considered to be one of the most durable materials, especially for kitchen cabinets. Hardwoods such as hickory or maple can even resist scratching and denting compared to walnuts and mahogany which are softwoods. It is slightly more expensive as it is highly durable and comes in high quality.

Another common domestic wood is cherry wood. It has a grain pattern all across and comes in rich colour. For a warm kitchen atmosphere, cherry wood would be perfect. Some other hardwood kitchen cabinet materials are oak, spruce, pine, birch and beech. These are on the expensive side. However, they are long-lasting making them cost-effective in the long run.

Usually, cabinets come in a ready-to-assemble form. VC Interiors offers a semi-custom option that gives you the opportunity to control the final look. While a lot of designers overlook the importance of drawers and make them with the same material used for the cabinetry, we use solid wood that is resistant to wear and tear from overuse. It is also used in solid wood or MDF.

Other than the material and structural integrity of the cabinets, we also give importance to cabinet doors. Cabinet doors are the most visible part of your kitchen cabinet and can change the character and look of your kitchen. We, therefore offer a wide variety of options. For clients who want a pop of colour in their kitchen, we go for MDF material as it is easier to be painted on. But they cannot be stained. For clients wanting a more natural look, we go for solid wood doors in a slab model. With all the wide range of options, it becomes easy to get fully functional and contemporary-looking kitchen cabinetry.

Timeless decorating & Interior design

Timeless decorating is designing the interior of your home in such a way that it stands the test of time. This is a neutral design that does not represent any particular decade or trend. At VC Interiors, we use timeless decorating for our clients. This helps our clients to save a lot of money. When we decorate with timeless pieces, you do not have to replace them when there is a new trend. Our pieces are classic enough that they go with every trend. We use items such as smart lighting, invisible grills, smart kitchen appliances, smart home appliances, automation, etc. Integrating these new technologies makes your interior design trendy yet classic. Whenever you feel like embracing a new trend, all you have to do is make small changes and you will not have to remodel or repaint your whole house.

Following are some of the tips we adopt to make our designs timeless:

1. Clean Lines

One of the most basic minimalist principles we use is decorating with clean lines. Furniture that has a clean line is a trend that works well with most styles. We avoid furniture that has ornate details, unusual shapes, flashy colours, etc. We look for comfortable, well-defined pieces in a neutral fabric. If our clients want ornate details instead of going for gaudy furniture, we look for furniture with classic details such as nailhead trim or tufting.

2. Neutral Colors

Neutral colours work with any style or trend. When you have a wall with a neutral colour, you can change the other colours in the room without having to repaint the whole house. This is because neutrals go with everything. We incorporate neutral colours in both the fabrics and walls. For example, if you have a neutral sofa, then you can add colourful pillows, rugs and other accessories to completely change your look. Thus, neutral shades offer a lot of flexibility.

3. Accents

Even with our timeless approach, we do not completely avoid trends. However, we try to make sure that the main pieces of décor are not centred on one particular trend. We use a trendy colour in accents and other accessories.

4. Minimalism

A cluttered house looks bad no matter what the season or trend is. With our timeless pieces, we make the space look clutter-free. We streamline the décor. Instead of using several pieces in a room, we focus on one big accenting element and other small accents to complement it.

5. Combine Old and New

Ancient pieces become timeless when you can use them in a modern design. When you mix antiques and new pieces of furniture, you can represent trends from different decades. This creates a lived-in yet sophisticated look. We use vintage pieces in our contemporary designs.

6. Traditional Patterns

Stripes, plaids, florals, and damasks have all been classic and traditional prints. We use these to create a timeless effect. For furniture that you might use for many years like sofas, we go for classic prints. For items that you regularly change up such as accent pillows, we use more trendy patterns such as animal print.

Interior Designing in Trivandrum

Interior designing Trivandrum: There is often a lot of ambiguity regarding how interior designing and interior architecture perform. This also includes the different functions and services provided by an architect and an interior designer. This varies on the company you choose to build your home. Some of them offer architects who only do work that is related to the architecture of the building while some provide only the design aspect of it. There are also services where one person has enough expertise to do both. That being said, there are certain primary differences between what an architect does and what an interior designer does

Interior architecture

Interior architecture basically involves building an empty space while balancing planning as well as execution. They create new spaces that you can live in and make your own. An architect will make the designs of the home, review them, and then supervises the construction of these buildings. When they are given a space, they try to make a building that is functional. Every small work associated with the exterior of a building is dealt with by an architect. They also have the responsibility of making the basic structure of a building or a blueprint. This work includes how the rooms are placed, dining area, garden, and make appropriate space as per the needs of the client. For example, if the client needs a study, the architect has to figure out the placement of a study in that given area.

Interior Designing

Interior designing comes in once a building is constructed, usually. Interior designers primarily accessorize and furnish the empty space created by the architect. They will beautify a given space according to the requirements of the client. They decide things such as what kind of sofas will go in a room, where they will go, which curtain or rug goes better with it, the colour scheme of the entire house, where is woodwork needed, where should pieces of furniture go, etc. Thus, they will up an empty space to make it livable.

Certain functions fall under both the heads of interior designing and interior architecture like interior tile and woodwork, interior elevations, planning for the placement of furniture, etc.

Why VC Interiors?

At VC Interiors interior designing Trivandrum, We like to have an integrated practice. This means that both these fields are interlinked and do not function differently. This means that the design process for both is more or less the same. Irrespective of whether we are working with an in-house architect or somebody from outside, we try to work together from the very beginning of the project. This prevents the architecture of the house from being a hindrance to a certain kind of interior design that a client wants.

Design consultants

Our design consultants work with the architect to ensure that the project looks cohesive. An example is that, if the client wants a window seat, we can give the architect instructions to make the architecture that fits a French window and a seating area which can later be decorated by us. We also integrate a lot of modern technology into the architecture of the building such as automation, smart home appliances, invisible grills, smart lighting, smart kitchen appliances, etc.

Modern technology

By working with the architect, we make sure that the building is custom-made to be conducive to this modern technology. Our services are customized according to the needs of the clients. For some, we make every decision for them and for others, we just guide them through the selection of furniture and other finishes, depending on what they want.

Minimalist designs

However, our minimalist designs do not lack decorations or bright colours. We use them as accents so as not to overcrowd your home with a lot of them. For example, instead of choosing several small decorative pieces, we use one piece. This makes sure that your house looks elegant and that there will be no other elements that cause a distraction. We also make sure that your home mainly has defined, clean lines and flat surfaces. The cabinets and drawers will be well defined to make sure there are flat surfaces. We give our cabinetries flat handles to make them look polished and minimalist.

We use smart lighting to make your space look more spacious instead of cluttering it with big lamps or light fixtures. These lighting systems are also beautiful. We have a range of stunning lights that are works of art themselves and highly functional at the same time. They easily complement any home interior design kerala. Invisible grills are a great way to bring more light into your space. They make sure your windows and balcony are protected but also do not block the view.

Modular Kitchen

A sleek and modern kitchen is also part of our minimalist designs. We use smart kitchen appliances, smart lighting, and better storage space to make the kitchen minimal yet sophisticated. Instead of displaying your big utensils in the kitchen, you can easily store them away in cabinets. We also make sure to avoid big lighting fixtures. We use the best quality cabinet and hardware as the budget allows. This is so because the low quality and poor designs get highlighted in a minimalist kitchen. Once the basic structure is made, we add decorative pieces to make the kitchen warmer and to be of depth.

We also make the rooms bright and airy by using cool tones. We use the black and white colour palette and then break the monotony with a pop of colour. We do this by using appliances and dishes. We also make sure not to use unnecessary prints and patterns. Smart storage, flat surfaces, and well-made cabinetry help us make minimalist, organized, and clutter-free spaces.
