What are your suggestions for kitchens in humid and hot climates like Goa, for example?At Blissspace, we create custom kitchen designs that adhere to international standards in terms of style, materials, and appliances. When it comes to kitchens suitable for humid and hot climates, particularly in a place like Goa (that beautifully merges Indian and Portuguese influences) we design kitchens that combine elements from the East and West.
With the rapid growth of construction in Goa, individuals from all across India are making investments in villas and apartments, often treating them as second homes. Taking this trend into consideration, we are introducing a brand-new European-inspired Island kitchen design, tailored specifically for villas and apartments in Goa. This design perfectly aligns with the preferences of the local Goan population as well as people from all over the globe making Goa their new home, offering a harmonious blend of aesthetics and functionality.
Our development of European-style kitchens is based on research on various aspects, including human behavior, the local climate, and the architectural and design essence of the particular region.
What are the distinctive design elements of European-style Island kitchens?The development of European-style Island kitchens stems from comprehensive research that encompasses various aspects, including human behavior, the local climate conditions, and the architectural and design essence of the particular state or region.
Focus is also on proper selection of moisture-resistant materials for the kitchen, and include solutions for energy efficiency. To counteract rust-related issues, I would suggest using stainless steel and aluminium fasteners. Also, high-quality water and termite resistant cabinets for long lasting durability well as aesthetics. Integration of vapor barriers beneath the house acts as a preventive measure, hindering the upward seepage of moisture from the ground.
Another crucial consideration is proper ventilation in the kitchen. In well-designed tropical kitchens, effective natural ventilation is essential due to the substantial heat generated during cooking and baking activities. It’s imperative to incorporate ample windows with generous ventilation openings to ensure sufficient natural airflow.
