What is a Modular Kitchen?

A modular kitchen is a flexible way to design your kitchen in a simple and modern way, which allows you to choose various types of cabinets and compartments for different functions which come in “modules”. Here, modules are mentioned as cabinets or compartments.

The modules can usually be available in different sizes and special orders.

The modules are available in any color, style, and finishings.

3. U-Shaped modular kitchen layout

It is an efficient layout that frees up floor space but requires a large kitchen space. It is not ideal for a small kitchen or household. But this layout provides most storage space with plenty of upper, lower cabinets and tall units as well.

4. Parallel or Gallery Shaped Kitchen Layout

A parallel-shaped kitchen or a galley kitchen is a classic layout with a narrow space that comprises two walls with a passageway between them. It is designed with base and wall cabinets on either side, it is an easy layout to design as there is no space for corner cabinets. It separates the storage area in the kitchen from the cooking space. In this layout, you get attached shelf cabinets, mid-height compartments, and lift-ups. A parallel kitchen or say galley kitchen layout takes up less floor space and works well for compact homes.

5. Island modular kitchen layout

An island modular kitchen layout is a free-standing piece of cabinetry that is placed in a kitchen to supplement the countertop space It combines either a straight line or L-shaped kitchen layout with an unconnected island space. The island can be used as an extra counter area or breakfast nook, bar counter, or baking nook, and it can also be equipped with a sink or stovetop. As this layout is composed of two opposing working areas and storage spaces, this kitchen layout can be ideal for open-plan living and for entertaining too. This layout is ideal for large kitchen spaces only.

6. G- Shaped or Peninsula modular kitchen layout

A G-shaped or Peninsula modular kitchen layout is one of the lesser-known kitchen layouts. It is similar to a U-shaped kitchen but distinguished by a fourth counter which essentially means your kitchen is a square shape with a space for the entrance. It is similar to an island kitchen layout as it has a free-standing workspace that comes with a secondary counter, work or entertainment area. As opposed to an island layout, this peninsula is connected to the main workspace which makes it accessible from three, rather than four sides. It is often considered the ideal layout for small kitchen areas. The peninsula comes up with all the advantages of an island worktop while utilizing less floor space.
