3 Basic Types of Modular Kitchen Cabinets

A modular kitchen is comprised of many cabinets. In this article, we will talk about the kinds of cabinets that are usually used in most modular kitchens.

Types of kitchen cabinets:

  • Base Cabinets
    Base Cabinets are those which are placed below the granite slab of the kitchen. They form the support structure of the modular kitchen and can house various kinds of accessories. They can comprise of drawers, shelves, various types of stainless steel baskets and other accessories. A lot of storage can be created even if the kitchen is just made of Base Cabinets! A modular kitchen is incomplete without its Base Cabinets.
  • Wall Cabinets or Overhead Cabinets
    These kitchen cabinets are those that are placed above the granite slab, on the wall. Although almost every Modular kitchen is made with wall cabinets included, they are optional, if you are on a budget. Wall cabinets can be designed in a number of ways since they are more flexible to design than Base Cabinets which are usually a little standardised. Though their depths are lesser than Base Cabinets, they can create a lot of storage space even in small kitchen spaces! We even design wall cabinets right upto the ceiling, if our valued clients so require.
  • Tall Cabinets or Tall Units
    These cabinets are generally not present in most modular kitchens. They are usually made in kitchen spaces which are larger than average. These cabinets are useful for extra items like groceries, pickle jars, ready to eat packed foods etc in your kitchen area.

We would be discussing more about base cabinets and wall cabinets in detail in our upcoming articles.

What is a Modular Kitchen?

What exactly is a modular kitchen?

Modular Kitchen is a term used for the modern kitchen furniture layout consisting of modules of cabinets made of diversified materials which hold accessories inside, which can facilitate the effective usage of the spaces in a kitchen. Normally the units which are kept on the floor are called “floor units” or “floor cabinets” on which a kitchen worktop made of granite, marble, tile or wood has been laid for creating spaces for varied activities in a kitchen.

The units which are held on the wall for storage purposes are termed as “wall units” or “wall cabinets” . In small areas of kitchen in an apartment, even a “tall storage unit” is available for effective storage.
Modular kitchen normally constitutes wooden cabinets, counter tops, internal accessories, electro eomestic gadgets like chimney, hob, built-in-oven, sink with or without drain board and in some cases a refrigerator, dishwasher or other gadgets.

The designer normally designs the space using modules of standardized/customized sizes to suit individual spaces. [Wikipedia]
