Chiranjiv Singh, Founder, CJ Living, and sole distributor of Rational modular kitchens from Germany, describes their latest kitchen designs, materials and finishes in the Indian market

Most consumers want sleek and trendy modular kitchen designs with coordinated accessories and easily moveable parts. What's trending most in design and layout are the U-shaped or L-shaped kitchen with a central island as they make cooking very convenient. Basically, we recommend simple layouts and designs, which are user-friendly and practical to use. All finishes depend on aesthetics and are good to use, but in case of very heavy cooking then lacquer kitchens are recommended as they are easy to maintain.

At CJ Living, we are showcasing the latest cutting-edge Luna line-up that features the brilliant Acrylux surface and its impressive depth of colour. It is the perfect alternative to the high-gloss lacquered surfaces. The shiny, shimmering Kubanit colour shade is combined with a warm walnut decor to create a rich contrast. A special edition guarantees sleek, clean-cut lines on unit fronts and has illuminated glass panels for a stunning effect.


The Cascade kitchen showcases linear, geometric contours and an array of materials. The base and wall-unit fronts feature designer frames. Stainless steel and textured Eucalyptus Vulcano melamine provide contrast. The Wool colour tone works particularly well at base-unit level. Striking worktops and plinth profile in high-tech DuPont™" Cosmos Prima" Corian® material surround both function islands, giving them an understated focus.

The modular kitchen business is all about customization as per site requirement whether small or big. Every order takes 10 to 12 weeks delivery time from production to shipping to assembly and delivery to customer's house. We deal with the individual consumer directly since the kitchens have to be tailor made as per the kitchen size and choice of material and colour for cabinets and countertop, and the appliances to be integrated. As a kitchen design company, we understand the specific requirements of the buyer and after finalization of the design and price, the engineering team of the supplier company in Germany manufactures the complete set in modules, which are then transported and assembled at site.


Rational Kitchens is perceived as a luxury brand with value for money. The brand offers more design variants compared to other German brands available in the country, which are more straight-line kitchens. Despite its high-end image, the brand also caters to the mid-segment with affordable price points. Our premium price range starts from ₹10 lakhs. Rational has allied with Miele & Siemens in India for integrating their appliances and hardware to give the kitchens a wholesome integrated look and complete convenience to the user.
