Modular kitchens are becoming increasingly popular in Bangalore and other parts of India and the globe thanks to their functionality and aesthetic value. A modular kitchen simply refers to one in which most of the fixtures (cabinets, countertops, drawers, shelves and others) have been manufactured offsite and are installed ready-made in your kitchen space. They have many advantages to offer in addition to being highly functional and beautiful including the fact that they are easy to clean and maintain flexibility and convenience. If you are thinking about putting in a modular kitchen, below are five things you should know:
- Modular kitchens are prefabricated
Modular kitchens are made in a factory with pre-determined specifications with regard to measurements, colour, size, material and other aspects. As a result, you can be sure of a standardized product that has been tested and tried. The prefabricated kitchen is then fitted into your home in accordance with your requirements and you can put the pieces together to fit your space or decor scheme.
- Modular kitchens are often better quality
Modular kitchen designers often use the best quality materials and design concepts in order to create a product that appeals to a wide range of customers. They will also be designed to fit in a variety of spaces, so you can be sure that your unit will fit comfortably into your kitchen regardless of its size and shape.
- They are faster to install
Since they are manufactured offsite and delivered to your home in complete units, modular kitchens take a shorter time to install. With traditional kitchen fixtures, you will normally have to contend with factors such as the contractor’s skill and time availability, ease of accessing the materials you need and other elements that will affect the time it takes to install your kitchen. With modular kitchens, everything but the fitting is done off site, which means that your installation takes a much shorter time.
- Modular kitchens may cost less
Depending on the materials used by the manufacturer you choose, modular homes may cost less, although you may have to compromise on quality if you choose a cheaper supplier.
- The installation process is much simpler
Modular kitchens are prepared beforehand in factories and other work sites. This means that they are delivered to your home in complete units which only require assembling. An experienced carpenter or employee from the modular company will then install them on your premises, using a process which is much simpler than having everything built from scratch on site.
Modular kitchens offer many advantages to homeowners including convenience, flexibility, easy maintenance and cleaning and many others. With the right information at hand, you should be able to choose the right modular kitchen for your needs and have the kitchen of your dreams installed in no time.
