Modular kitchens are incomplete without cabinets or units that are assembled together for storing things.

Kitchen layout matters

Surely it does. The shape of the modular kitchen must be determined by how large or small your kitchen size is. We say, if your kitchen doesn’t have the extra space, opt for an L-shaped modular kitchen. That way, you’re saving up space. An ideal L-shaped kitchen can successfully house a nice dining table if you plan to put it within the kitchen itself. If you’ve figured out a spacious kitchen layout, choose a U-shape of the modular kitchen. This type can best fit into wider spaces and provides versatility.

Gloss is in

High-gloss finish laminate modular kitchens that are trending these days. When you look for a modular kitchen in Kolkata, choose a high glossy-textured modular kitchen over a matt laminate one. Not only is it low maintenance but in fact, is easy on your pocket too. Select a nice pastel hue or a dark one like purple or burgundy, and customize the kitchen as per your desire.


Keep in mind about the corners

Make sure to utilize your corner spaces wisely. Generally, while setting up a modular kitchen, we tend to emphasize on the lift up cabinets, the three important access areas – cooking, washing and dry storage, and pull-out drawers. Indeed, these are typical of any modular kitchen. However, the corner space can be fully utilized too. The corner can store some of the most utilitarian things you can ever imagine. Make sure to keep these tips in mind before you take a plunge in purchasing a modular kitchen.

Modular Kitchen Layout Basics – The Types & Designs

Traditionally kitchen layouts were always about the ‘work triangle’ where only one person cooked and his or her space was usually bordered by the range, the sink and the refrigerator on the three sides. Modular kitchen layouts in current times are on the other hand built around the ‘Work zone’ concept which is more practical in the sense that it caters to the multiple-cook and multiple zone inside the kitchen aspect, aiming to create many such comfortable zones inside a kitchen space. Following is the MoBEL’s guide to Modular Kitchen Layouts so that you have the layout basics in place.

One Wall Modular Kitchen Layout: This is the ultimate space optimizing kitchen layout design and can be found in studio apartments, small flats or even lofts. The one wall layout, as the name suggests refer to the layout where all kitchen appliances, cabinets, etc are fixed on one single wall.

Galley Modular Kitchen: Galley kitchen layouts are those where appliances and cabinets are fixed on two walls opposite to each other. Hence, it consists of two parallel countertops with a sort of corridor in between them, ideal for a one-cook scenario and is also commonly called as the ‘walkthrough kitchen’. This layout is one of the most popular since it makes optimum utilization of every inch of space that is available – great for small apartments where such lean and compact arrangements are required.

L Shaped Modular Kitchen: L shaped kitchens are layouts where countertops are not on parallels, but adjoining walls. Hence they are perpendicular to each other, forming an ‘L’ shape. A great layout for medium sized or even small kitchen spaces, this eliminates the corner space optimization issue that most kitchen face. The leg of the L can be as long as one needs depending on floor space but one should keep them within 12-15 ft at max in order to utilize space. The unique point of this layout is that it eliminates traffic completely and in case of bigger spaces, is flexible enough to have islands, a dining space or other work zones added on. However, this should not be used in very big kitchen spaces where other better layouts can be configured.

L Shaped Modular Kitchen

Horseshoe Modular Kitchen Layout: Horseshoe kitchen layout was primarily a design that consisted of kitchen cabinets & appliances on three walls. However, the modern horseshoe has evolved to an L shaped layout with an add-on island space as an alternative to the third wall since it allows free movement around the island.

Horseshoe Modular Kitchen Layout

Island Kitchen Layouts: Modular kitchen layouts where one has an island in the kitchen space are popularly known as the island layouts – a massive hit with people having bigger kitchen spaces. The island almost always has cabinets and storage space built into it and the surface is used for various purposes. The island countertop can be used as an additional workspace if added with a sink, an eating place if added with some stools or even a beverage store with an addition of a wine cooler. Islands are also used to convert a one wall layout into a galley one or an L shaped design into a horseshow one.

4 Steps to a Budget Modular kitchen Design

Let me guess…you have this dream modular kitchen design in your mind but your budget strings are tied too tight, right? Well, needless to say you are not the only one who is looking for ways to build a fab kitchen within a tight budget. The good news is that…yes, it’s possible and you’re at the right place to know exactly how!

In order to keep your modular kitchen prices down, you need to know exactly which components eat into your kitchen budget the most. The four main kitchen components that pull up the cost are –

Modular-kitchen-design

Kitchen Cabinets:

One of the major kitchen budget eat-awaysare your cabinets but the material used for the same can play a major role in keeping a check on the designing costs. The best option for kitchen cabinets are always solid wood shutters, which are usually made of teakwood, pinewood or any other solid wood and have a smooth and even finish. However these are the most expensive. Polished shutters also cost as much as the above since they are made of oakwood, rosewood or teakwood and are waterproof. Alternatively one can go for the plywoods, both commercial as well as marine, which are far less in price but are long lasting.

Kitchen Countertops:

The second component to affect your budget is your countertop and if you can play this card smartly, a 1 lac modular kitchen can be very much up your sleeve. As per latest trends, the new Tristone surface is the most suitable but also the most expensive. In case of Indian households with a 1 lac budget, one can go for granite, which is heat resistant, durable and easy to maintain, followed by other materials such as laminate, quartz and marble.

Kitchen Flooring:

This is another component that heavily eats into your budget since kitchen flooring is far more expensive then other flooring. Moreover, you need to go for a hygienic flooring type that can be cleaned easily. Popularity wise, traditional wood or stone are the most sought after kitchen flooring but again the most expensive. Marble on the other hand, is very popular but very costly and requires regular maintenance since any major spill tends to stain it permanently. To have a budget modular kitchen design, you can go for ceramic tiles that are hugely popular due to its durable, anti-skid and cleansing-friendly nature. Other flooring options to go for include porcelain and mosaic.

Kitchen Accessories:

The five main kitchen accessories include the wall and base storage unit, the drawers, the sink, the doorknobs and the cutlery trays, etc. Choosing the design and style of the above mainly depends on the space available in your kitchen. However, in order to keep from overshooting your budget, keeping some of the accessories in steel, playing around with brands, etc might be a good idea. Going for a well-designed but basic stainless steel or a porcelain sinkinstead of a mineral quartz onefor example will help you get your dream modular kitchen design well within your budget!
