How important are the finishes of inside your kitchen cabinets compared to the exterior of your modular kitchen?
This can be one of the clear indications of the overall modular kitchen quality and could be a clear differentiator. One is to have a closer look inside the kitchen cabinets displayed at the modular kitchen showroom. Many a times, we end up looking only at the external appearance and get distracted with all the accessories and ranges available. Also the more showrooms you visit and talk to people; you will be flooded with varied information and it can be overwhelming!
It is important to give attention to details. Each component like the internals, accessory provisions, hardware, exterior finishes have to be looked into keenly. The internal laminates have to be seamlessly pressed and edge banding to be fixed with machine precision for each panel. To achieve perfection the modular kitchen cabinets has to be pre-drilled with holes (for hardware and accessory fixing), and grooves done by CNC machines. This will ensure that the panels, hinges, channels and accessories are joined in perfection while installation. If these are done manually at site, it leaves pencil markings in the internals and the accuracy in fittings will be compromised. It is the fine tuning which makes a modular kitchen to stand out and seamless with perfect lines.
To make your modular kitchen perfect both in form and function, look into the details of both inside and outside of the kitchen.
There are many advantages in opting for a modular kitchen rather than all other options mentioned in my previous post. This post is to list out a few;
After many years of kitchen usage, some units may have more wear and tear (like the sink unit due to water leakage, dampness etc). In a real Modular kitchen, those cabinets or panels can be replaced with minimal disruption. Once it is done, the kitchen might look as good as new.
In a modular kitchen, the raw material which goes into the making will be of excellent quality. Hence most good brands are able to give guarantee of at least 5 years. Also due to good quality material and imported machinery the final finished kitchen will definitely look superior (both inner and exterior).
While customisation, the errors are minimised due to the design software used and technical competency of the designer. Optimal storage is planned and the cabinets are predrilled at the factory so the fitting of hardware and accessories will be precise. This will give the kitchen perfect lines between cabinets and makes it to stand out. Also the cabinets will be designed and made accessory friendly, which make it possible to add in future.
Today many are opting for built-in appliances in the kitchen. Each appliance is of different sizes and has ventilation, inlet / outlet requirements. All those factors will be taken into account and manufactured accordingly for hassle free installation and durability of the appliances.
Another feedback recently got from a customer is that due to the perfect fixing of each modular kitchen cabinet, there will not be any crevices and it reduces the chances of cockroaches.
Finally the installation time taken is minimal and site does not get untidy. There will not be any dust, noise, debris etc.
