Major Design Types of a Modern Modular Kitchen

Such an important part of any house, kitchen needs to be designed and built considering every tiny and big possibility that one can think of!

And what better way to begin with, than to decide on the type of design you’d want for your kitchen to have!

So, here’s an overview of the major design types of modular kitchens:

U-shaped Kitchen
Giving you ample space to cook, and fit others too who’d like to help you make the dinner, U-shaped kitchens are adept at giving people all the rom they need! Add to that, an efficient arrangement of cabinets and drawers, and you have got yourself an A-level storage, making your kitchen, an outright winner! Extremely accommodating, U-shaped kitchens look really classy too.

Parallel or Straight Kitchen
Such a boon for those living in small apartments or flats, straight kitchens, or as some people call them, parallel kitchens, these are the most efficient of them all. Knowing well that space is a luxury that these kitchens can hardly afford, efficiency becomes the operative word for this kitchen.

L-shaped Kitchen
Somewhere between an U-shaped kitchen and a parallel kitchen, an L-shaped kitchen both uses some space, and saves some too! As ironical as it may sound, this kitchen includes more of a room, but lets you occupy all that extra room by placing a small table and a few chairs, making you a perfect breakfast or a bit smaller dining table. A kitchen where you can both cook and eat!

Island Kitchen
Here we have a unique combination of L-shaped kitchen and a straight or parallel kitchen, An Island kitchen dos like to use a bit more space than all its other counterparts; but if you have a lot you need to store, and a large apartment, then this is the kitchen that would go perfectly well with your needs!

Having discussed the major types of modular kitchens, you can now think in terms of what suits you the best, and take your pick!

 

 

Modular Kitchen Design: A Few Tips

An inseparable part of your home, without a doubt, to get your modular kitchen design right must be your near-top priority. And it should be, as a lot of one’s time is spent making delicious and healthy food for the family!
So, let’s take a look at a few very-easy-to-follow tips to get this thing going:

CHOOSE YOUR DESIGN

The very first thing that should come to mind, the most important thing for designing the perfect kitchen, is the type of design that you want to employ. Irrespective of how beautiful you might think that a kitchen looks in a popular magazine or the showroom you visited, your choice of kitchen design should be first and foremost, the representative of your needs and style, and then you can make modifications to it.
So, choose your design type – U-shaped, L-shaped, Island, Parallel, C-shaped, or whichever it is that you’d like to have.

STORAGE AND ORGANIZATION

However beautifully designed your kitchen might be, if you’re not able to maintain it over the period of time, then it’s of absolutely no use. Everything then falls apart!

So, be very particular about keeping your kitchen perfectly organized. And the first rule of organization comes from the fact that every accessory and tool in the place, however small or big, must have it’s very own place to stay put.
And that’s why, with organization, we come to realize the importance of another important term, called storage. Overhead cabinets and pantry are important storage areas that you must include in your kitchen. Everything that’s useful, keep it – and keep it in its right place. Everything you think you’ll use after learning how to bake, or maybe 10 years from now – get rid of it. Declutter!

ALL THE APPLIANCES YOU’D NEED

Use technology to your advantage. Your stove, grill, oven, microwave, and every other appliance that you know you’re going to use, keep. Or else, don’t bother buying it – it would be a waste of money, of space. And you can’t afford to waste any of these two resources!
Follow these few tips to get going on getting your new modular kitchen design right and ready!
