The Finish Matters

The kind of look you are aiming for in your modular kitchen will depend a lot on the finish i.e. the laminates and veneers which would be in use.

  • While a wooden grainy finish gives a classic look a glossy laminate on the other hand helps to make a contemporary statement.
  • In case you want to make a more individualistic statement there are combinations of glossy and matte finishes available.
  • Most leading interior designers will give you a lot of color and contrast choices ranging from bold showy prints to subtle textured finishes.
  • The wall colors of your kitchen will determine the harmony of complements and contrasts in the modular kitchen finishes.

Dazzling Designs and Layout

New age kitchen solutions involve the use of different types of layouts for maximum utilization of space and effective projection of the aesthetic sensibilities of the homeowner.

  • Apart from traditionally shaped kitchens like U Shaped kitchen and Straight kitchens, modular kitchens are also laid out in the “Peninsula Style” and in the “Parallel Kitchen Style” where glamorous designs are incorporated, to openly showcase the kitchen space as a highlight of the home.
  • L Shaped kitchen island is also a popular modular kitchen design where one corner of the home is beautifully designed leaving the rest of the cooking space uncluttered.
  • Another option is the Island Kitchen where the centerpiece of a room is a counter around which the entire kitchen unfolds.

Installing a Modular Kitchen

  • The first step in any kitchen transformation project is to visualize the cabinets and the color scheme of the kitchen before you explain/ choose your dream design from the portfolio.
  • Usually the entire installation process will be done in 5-8 weeks and you can oversee the entire process giving feedback or requesting changes wherever you think appropriate.
  • World class parts and standard sized elements are used to construct the body of the kitchen and this makes it easier for you to get kitchen parts replaced if the need arises.
  • Most good interior solution brands will also give you a warranty on the kitchen materials.

Modern trends in Modular Kitchens

The latest trends in modular kitchens reflect the changing sensibilities of the modern consumer.

  • While mixing and matching colors is now in vogue, an interesting trend is to combine matte metal (usually steel) and glass to design a dazzling cooking space.
  • Usually kitchen cabinets are made of A grade heat proof and termite proof plywood while the backs are finished in Bacalite.
  • The use of designer lights, tough lights and even mini chandeliers in the kitchen is another new trend.
  • While shutters used to be made of wood, the newest trend is to incorporate glass and steel shutters which gel well with futuristic new age homes.
