Modular Kitchen – Introduction
Modular Kitchen is basically a range of fixtures/cabinets which are put together in a planned and functional manner to make kitchen tasks easier. They are usually designed to suit an individual’s preference and adapts to the available space in one’s home.
Today various standardized modules, pre-fabricated in a variety of colors are available for one to choose from. This makes the whole process of setting up the modular kitchen with style and substance a breeze. Experts come and assemble the whole thing and before you know, the setup is ready for delivering. Of-course pre planning would help a lot.

Common ingredients of a modular kitchen are:
- Cabinets (you can choose the number based on availability of space)
- Drawers (you can choose the number based on availability of space)
- Built-in waste-baskets (as-in covered)
- Dishwashing machine
- Cooking range/Stove
- Microwave oven
- Conventional oven/Space for wet grinder
- Wash basin
The modules that make your kitchen “modular” would occupy both the floor and wall part of your kitchen. Apart from this one would have the table-like surface for placing electrical appliances like mixer, bread toaster and so on. Remember to have the electrical sockets planned in advance as well.
Materials used are just as varied. You could choose from natural or lacquered wood, combinations of wood and laminate, laminate and granite, or even aluminum and marble, or just flow freely with the tide of ingenious material at hand and explore your creative flair for a custom built one.
No matter what the size and the shape of the kitchen, the two basic preferences have always been wood and laminate for the cabinets and shutters, along with sturdy material like marbles or granite for the worktops. All other options are generally designed around these.
We will cover more on modular kitchens over the next few days.
