Versatility of Modular Kitchens

  • L-shaped:

Using modular units in an L-shaped kitchen format is one of the favourites when it comes to choosing the right shape for your modular kitchen. When it comes to perfectly implementing the golden triangle rule within smaller spaces. The best part of opting for an L-shaped kitchen is that it gives you the option of installing a dining table within the kitchen itself. So if you have little but sufficient space, L-shape is what your modular kitchen should look like.

  • U-shaped:

If you have a big kitchen with ample space available, U-shape is the best choice for you. It uses all the three walls of the kitchen space to perfection, offering enough storage space. The space also vouches for easy segmentation of the different working areas within the kitchen like cooking area, appliances and the sink. 

  • Straight:

Simple and elegant, straight kitchen design gives a sophisticated look to your kitchen by using minimum space efficiently. This design is preferred by individuals who don’t like to stuff their kitchen with too much and still want it to look appealing. 

  • Parallel:

Parallel as the name suggests, segregated the kitchen into two parallelly running workspaces, facing each other. This design not only offers plenty of storage space but also sees to it that there is a swift and easy movement while working in the kitchen. Optimally incorporating the triangle rule, Parallel design is one of the most efficient kitchen designs available, irrespective of the fact that you are living in a mansion or a small apartment.
