Modular Kitchen

It is a dream for all women out there to have a modular kitchen just the way they want. Your family spends most of the time in the kitchen to prepare a good stuff (food of course) for you so that you can be healthy all the time, hence it is very important to have a spacious, well organised and modular kitchen for them. So let’s understand what modular kitchen is all about.

A modern kitchen furniture layout consists of modules of cabinets made of diversified materials which hold accessories inside, which can facilitate the effective usage of the spaces in a kitchen. Normally, the units which are kept on the floor are called ‘floor units’ or ‘floor cabinets’ on which a kitchen worktop made of granite, marble, tile or wood has been laid for creating spaces for varied activities in a kitchen. The units which are held on the wall for storage purposes are termed as ‘wall units’. In small areas of kitchen in an apartment, even a ‘tall storage unit’ is available for effective storage. In a well-planned modular kitchen, a large amount of storage can be created even in a small space. Though a little on the expensive side, a modular kitchen is easy to install and maintain. Even repair work in such a kitchen can be carried out more easily as every individual part can be replaced without affecting the other components of the kitchen.

It is easier to plan a modular kitchen if you are building a house from scratch, but an existing one can also be renovated to modernise it and suit your needs. Though you can plan it yourself, it is advisable to take professional help. Start by planning a layout, the installation points for chimney, cabinets and other fittings, and finally, narrow down to the materials to be used. Here's a guide on how you can go about planning the perfect kitchen.

Don’t go for readymade modular kitchen, it is always good to have customised furniture for your modular kitchen, so that you can have complete idea of what exactly you want and how you want it to be in your kitchen. Make sure the vendor is giving you various options to keep your kitchen vessels properly and you save your time in search of the same. Also, make sure you are getting a good quality of wood and steel which are durable in terms of usage.

The basic advantage of modular kitchen is it makes your working easier and convenient. The installation of cabinets, drawers and racks is planned keeping in mind the important things that must be close to hand while cooking. You do not need to run from one place to another in the kitchen for fetching implements and utensils. Many people have a notion that having modular kitchens will require heavy maintenance. But it is exactly the opposite. Cleaning and maintaining modular kitchens is easier and simpler when compared to regular kitchens. The materials used in the modular kitchens are such that they do not accumulate dirt and can be washed off easily.
