How to Select a Modular Kitchen?
Layouts, pull-out cabinetry, lift-up cabinets, ergonomic designs — these are a few of the many terms that you will come across when you are planning to get started with your modular kitchen design and plan. There is no doubt that modular kitchens are practical and stylish. But instead of getting carried away with stunning designs in the interior design magazines, you should pay attention to the following aspects:
1. Space utilization: A well-planned kitchen aims to ensure efficient space utilization. It is for this reason that choosing the layout probably is the most important decision to make. The layout will decide how you will navigate in the kitchen. The layout shape depends a lot on the kind of space that is available. An island kitchen design will make a small space look more cramped whereas an L-shaped kitchen will look spacious in large space.
2. Storage modules: The whole focus of designing a modular kitchen is on cabinets and modules. Each module can different storage facilities. From drawers to lift-up cabinets, there are a variety of options. You can also go for storage solutions for awkward corners. Drawers, pullout pantry, open shelves, etc, all have their advantages. You should select the modules in such a way that you get easy access to all the storage units. Keep the specific requirement of your family in mind. For instance, if you have elderly at home, make sure you go for pullouts as they are easy to open.

5. Electronic appliances: While getting your kitchen designed, bear in mind the kind and the number of kitchen appliances you have. Built-in appliances chimney, hob, and oven need to be kept in mind. Make sure the size of stand-in appliances like fridge, microwave, etc are kept in mind when designing and building modular kitchens.
6. Plumbing fixtures: Don’t skimp on plumbing fixtures as once your modular kitchen is installed, then you have no time to go back on the design. Sinks must have good width and depth, depending upon the size of the family. Faucets must be tall and should have a movable spout for ease of use.
