When you think of modular kitchens, you probably don’t immediately think of practicality. After all, how can something be both stylish and functional? In this article, Designgatha’s experts’ will explore the benefits of having a modular kitchen, as well as some of the most basic tips for designing one that works for you.
What is a Modular Kitchen?
A computer software that can be created in a limited amount of time, and which can be used to create almost any type of kitchen. In simple terms, a modular kitchen is the result of taking a standard kitchen that has been put together following the common design conventions, and removing specific pieces for easier transport and storage. These types of kitchens are often referred to as ‘off the shelf’ or ‘off the grid’. Instead of buying a brand new kitchen, you can simply buy the parts, put them together and have a fully functional kitchen in just a few days. This makes it perfect for those who are interested in making a quick, cheap and easy kitchen but don’t have the time or desire to build a full kitchen from scratch.
The benefits of having a Modular Kitchen
Ease of Use – One of the most important benefits of having a modular kitchen is ease of use. If a part of your kitchen is buried in the floor, it will take longer to unpack, move and set up than if it’s sitting on a cart next to your stove. This means less chance of damage, and easier access to all the parts of your kitchen. Flexibility – Another important benefit of a modular kitchen is flexibility. You can simply take a standard kitchen and remove the cabinets, countertops, appliances and other pieces which don’t work for you.
This gives you the space needed for your personal preferences, and the flexibility to put together a kitchen that works best for you and your family. Health and Sanitation Improvements – Another benefit of a modular kitchen is health and sanitation improvements. There is less chance of insects and harmful bacteria entering your home via your networked appliances and devices, and less chance of you breathing in harmful chemicals from your indoor plants.
How to build a Stylish Modular Kitchen
Start Small – One of the most important things you can do is start small. If you’re going to build a modular kitchen, start with the base components like the pantry. This will give you a good starting point for your kitchen design. When building your modular kitchen, start by adding the most essential pieces like a sink, a toilet, a shower and a toilet tank. As you add more pieces to your kitchen, it’ll get harder and harder to remove them all in one go. This means they’ll be much easier to store away when you’re done using them, and will free up valuable space in your cabinets and drawers.
Add a Pivot Point – As your kitchen design evolves, add a pivot point. A pivot point is a central point which can act as the spine of your kitchen, and which can be used to break up the otherwise monotony of the rest of your kitchen’s design. Your kitchen’s pivot point should be based on your family’s personal preferences, as well as on functionality. If your family likes to eat at different times every day, you might choose to put the breakfast table at the center of your kitchen, while another member of your family might prefer to eat at the dinner table. A pivot point also makes your kitchen accessible to the outside world, as well as to your internal family members. If one room in your house gets out of control, it’s relatively easy to tear down and cart away your kitchen walls. But with a modular kitchen, you only have to remove the pieces which don’t work for you.
