Modern homes and apartments are getting smaller by the day, and it is absolutely critical to create a balance between décor ambitions and function. One of the better ideas is to consider a modular kitchen, instead of a standard one. People do have their doubts about modular kitchens, which is why we have answered some of the common questions below for your help.
- Are modular kitchens expensive?
Yes, and no. The cost of a modular kitchens is generally higher than traditional kitchens, because you get a lot of extra cabinets, compartments and drawers, which add to storage and keep the kitchen free of clutter. While the overall budget of a modular kitchen has to be higher, the term ‘expensive’ is relative to every homeowner.
- What are the pros and cons of modular kitchens?
The biggest benefit of modular kitchens is storage and function. You can keep the kitchen completely neat and clean, and that’s a huge advantage for smaller spaces. Also, for smaller kitchens, there isn’t much choice but to go for a modular design, because space use has to be maximized. The aesthetic appeal cannot be denied either. You can choose a design that fits in and works with the rest of your interiors.
Since modular kitchens are made of MDF, ply and engineered wood, you cannot expect your investment to last a lifetime, although water-proof and treated materials can look the same for decades. One of the other aspects is repairs. Repairing a modular kitchen can be a lot more expensive.
- Is it possible to work on a budget and reduce costs?
We strongly recommend that you consider the needs of your kitchen and select a design that works. A modular kitchen doesn’t have to be expansive or too elaborate for the sake of it. If you don’t need cabinets all the way to the ceiling, let the installer know. Also, the cost of using appliances as a part of the modular kitchen can add to the costs. If you can focus on function and less on extreme features, it is possible to work around a budget.
- What are the things that need attention?
Selecting a design for your modular kitchen can be a hard task, given that you have many goals. We recommend that you consider a few aspects, like the need for a sizeable countertop or worktop, the ability to have regular essentials within the hands needs, and selecting lighting that adds aesthetic appeal to the textures of cabinets. It depends on your objectives, but function should precede everything else when it comes to modular kitchens.
