5 Most Common Misconceptions about a Modular Kitchen

Modular Kitchen is a necessity now. The first thought that comes to a homemaker’s mind when you purchase a new home or remodel your exiting one, is about the kitchen. Usually, your kitchen is the first area of your home that you start planning about. 

While working with our valued customers, we have come across a few misconceptions that they have had, through the years. Here, we compile the 5 most common misconceptions about a modular kitchen that our customers have brought to light to us.

MISCONCEPTION 1: MODULAR KITCHEN IS EXPENSIVE

5 MOST COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT A MODULAR KITCHEN

 

This is the most common misconception that we have come across among our customers. It takes time but they soon realize that with a modular kitchen from us, they get absolute value for their money! A modular kitchen is fully customizable to your requirements of space and budget. It is not  luxury to have a modular kitchen anymore! In fact, it is a necessity.

At UNIQUE, we take into account budget, space and customer’s specific requirements while designing your kitchen. We pass on the advantage of having an in house manufacturing unit straight to our customers.  Since a modular kitchen is a highly customized item, we ensure that there is one suitable for every customer! Our range of modular kitchens start from Rs 42000/- onwards only including delivery and installation! Click here to know more about our Rs 42000/- kitchen. 

MISCONCEPTION 2: MODULAR KITCHEN IS OF INFERIOR QUALITY

This is the next most common misconception among homemakers that if they opt for a modular kitchen, material used would be of inferior quality and they might have to shell out an obscene amount for something that would not last very long. It was basically felt by some customers that a modular kitchen isn’t very durable. 

The fact is, that modular kitchen cabinets are far more sturdy and durable than traditional carpenter made kitchens. This is because, each cabinet is a separate unit with all five sides. A local carpenter made kitchen does not have such durability since most of them, taking advantage of a customer’s lack of knowledge, simply divide the modules with partitions and place shutters. From the front it looks the same but it is in fact very inferior and not at all durable as a modular kitchen. To support hardware and accessories, a modular kitchen has two sides available for stability. A Modular Kitchen is designed and manufactured with special accessories and hardware. At UNIQUE, in spite of passing on our manufacturing cost advantages to our valued customers, we make sure that the accessories used are of industry standard quality, for ensuring maximum value. 

MISCONCEPTION 3: MODULAR KITCHEN CANNOT BE REUSED

Another misconception about a modular kitchen is quite common – Most customers is assume that it cannot be reused, meaning, it cannot be changed or remodeled in future. 

The fact that our kitchens are modular in nature, implies, as mentioned in point 2, that every cabinet is a separate unit. Hence, instead of dismantling the entire kitchen, we simply open up a specific cabinet to upgrade or change it as per our customer’s requirement. This ensures the daily working of your kitchen is not hampered and work can go on smoothly. Only the cabinet that needs to be repaired, replaced or upgraded will be affected, without affecting the entire kitchen.  Though this misconception is very common that modular kitchen cannot be reused, it is very easy to see that the same is false, when you start using a modular kitchen. 

MISCONCEPTION 4: MODULAR KITCHEN IS DIFFICULT TO CLEAN

As mentioned earlier, we manufacture modular kitchens using industry standard hardware and accessories. It is not at all difficult to clean a modular kitchen and maintain it. Most kitchens consist of pull out systems that come out to you and can be cleaned easily. We ensure while designing that most corners of your kitchen are accessible and within reach so as to ensure easy and hassle free cleaning and maintenance for your modular kitchen. This also ensures that there is minimum chance for breeding of cockroaches in your kitchen. 

MISCONCEPTION 5: MODULAR KITCHEN COMPANIES DO NOT OFFER GOOD AFTER SALES SUPPORT

5 MOST COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT A MODULAR KITCHEN

It is rather unfortunate that such a misconception exists in the mind of some customers even today. The very reason for the existence of such a misconception is the presence of so-called “designers” and “carpenters” in the market who do not have the moral or ethical sensibilities while dealing with customers. We don’t mean to sound harsh here, but most do not have the required support system present with them to deal with customer complaints either. Years of reliance on traditional carpenters who work by hand to make furniture has brought in a negative view in the mind of customers that once a modular kitchen is made, it is their liability. If anything goes wrong, even normal wear and tear, they have no lookout and have to simply accept the same. 

For a professional modular kitchen manufacturing company like us, customers are our top most priority. You simply have to make one call to us and your site visit would be scheduled to look into your issue. We have a standard one year warranty against manufacturing defects. Even after warranty period, one call is all you need to schedule your site visit for inspection and repairs. Your kitchen is not your liability after it is manufactured. We are here and would look after any issues that may come up during daily use of your modular kitchen, from time to time.
