If you’re deep in the process of planning a new kitchen, or in fact just getting started, you’ve probably stumbled across the term “modular kitchen.” If you’ve not seen this term anywhere before, or you’re planning your first new kitchen, you’ll probably find yourself asking, “what is a modular kitchen?” We’re here to help. In our blog, we’ll walk you through just what exactly a modular kitchen is, as well as everything you need to know about them if you’re considering a new kitchen.
A modular kitchen is simply a modern and flexible way to design your kitchen, allowing you to choose a variety of cabinets for different functions which come in “modules.” The modules are available in different sizes which can suit various functions depending on which area of the kitchen you would choose to use the module. They are also available in any number of colours, styles and finishes which can affect the price, but also means that you will be able to find the right style to suit the look and feel you are trying to achieve in your kitchen.
A modular kitchen is highly customisable, meaning you are able to select the cabinet layouts and types to meet your storage needs in the kitchen without having to settle for run-of-the-mill cabinets that don’t fulfil the purposes you require in your kitchen.
For instance, one module might offer standard shelving, while another could offer storage for wine, spices or glassware, or even an island if you have space for one. You’re also not limited to the lower cabinets of your kitchen, and if you require a wall mounted or overhead cabinets, these are equally customisable as the lower cabinets. The options are endless with a modular kitchen, as you can mix layouts and designs to make the perfect combination.
Modular kitchens are also very stylish, streamline and affordable. The added benefit of this is that you can have a tailored kitchen with the bespoke feel and layout that you need without having to pay for a custom kitchen, essentially purpose-built to fit your space.
Modular kitchens tend to be quite popular with people who have limited space, like people who live in terraced homes, flats, or generally any home with a very small kitchen. Being able to choose the types of cabinets you need in your space means that you can avoid bulky cabinets that don’t compliment your space our suit your needs. Instead, you can focus on the most effective units that will help you to save space, yet that also allow you to make the best use of the space that you have available.
While some people might benefit from a large corner cabinet, others may find this space more useful for a different kitchen function. The beauty and flexibility of a modular kitchen mean that you can opt for whatever function works best for you in your space, really giving you the chance to make your kitchen your own.
