Important Points to Consider While Choosing the Right Kitchen Bin

When you’re designing a kitchen, choosing the right garbage bin might not be the first thing on your mind – but it sure should be. The choice of a bin is one of the most important things, and considerable thought should go into choosing one.

Let’s first look at the kinds of trash bins available in the market these days…

First is the basic bin, the manual one that has a lid which simply needs to be lifted, every time you have some trash to throw. The advantage is, it comes really cheap.

Then, there is the pedal bin where you literally have a pedal to push down which opens the lid of the bin. The advantage here is, you don’t need to touch the lid with hands at all. It works really well in kitchens.

Push bin is the kind that works on a Spring mechanism. It opens on one side as you push the other side down. Here, you can use the trash in your hands to push the lid down, most of the times. But, it won’t always be possible; you’ll have to use hands to push it down. Many kitchens use this type of bin, though the pedal bins are more popular

The most expensive kinds are the automatic bins. They have an infrared motion detector which responds to even the slightest hand movement, making it a super sophisticated trash bin. You wouldn’t really find such a costly bin in an average modular kitchen in Trivandrum, Kochi, Ahmedabad, and so on.

Now, what are the significant features one must look out for while buying a trash bin for their kitchen?

Here are a few ideas…

Choose a bin with a capacity ideal to the space you have in the kitchen, as well as according to the number of people who’d be using it.

Now that we have many modular kitchens in Kochi, Trivandrum, etc. having different bins for different kinds of garbage – plastic, wet waste, dry waste, and so on – look for a bin that already has compartments.

While you might think it’s just a trash can, the design and aesthetic aspects of the bin matter as well. There is a wide range of shapes, sizes, and colours available in the market today. When you go to buy one, focus on both practical as well as visual factors.

Blend the Antique with the Modern!

We see so many timeless modular kitchens in Thiruvananthapuram and such other old cities of the country which have successfully been able to bring together the old and the modern. Mixing textures and materials from worlds that are just short of a century apart – that is blending in ceramic, wood, metal, glass, and stone – creating a harmonious atmosphere – is what a timeless kitchen is all about. You can have antique iron pots that probably your grandma used to use, and at the same time, also have vases depicting modern art, to make the space feel interesting and warm and homey.

While it could hardly ever go wrong with marble countertops, you can very well experiment with this material.
