In order for an L shaped modular kitchen to be incorporated, the kitchen area itself must be built in a corner where two walls form a 90 degree angle to each other. This allows for the countertops to be placed perpendicular to each other so that you get the full advantage of the working triangle. This layout allows easy movement between the sink, the refrigerator and the oven or gas stove and makes meal preps quite efficient.
To start, I needed a vision board: I spent hours looking at paint samples because paint is the one thing that can instantly transform a space – make it brighter, happier, even more inspired. I wanted a neutral color that felt clean and could take on fun accents, plus, if we ever sold the home could be a blank space for others. I went with a Behr paint in Ancient Stone – a blue-based, cool gray (did I mention I love the color gray?). We spent about $250 on paint and another $150 on spackle.
With the pantries complete, we moved onto the floor. We wanted a large size subway tile in a dark grey that was easy to care for and still felt modern. We found the perfect match the perfect match at Home Depot and then came home as well as watched about 45 minutes of how-to videos.
Unlike wood, aluminium fixtures and cabinets don’t need to be painted or varnished or even oiled – just a simple cleaning and they look brand new. The fact that aluminium is heat resistant also makes it a great material to build a modular kitchen out of. A major concern in any kitchen is pests; aluminium becomes the perfect material for the kitchen because of the fact that it is pest resistant
Some of the exceptional features about modular kitchens are the colour combinations, the use of different countertop materials, modern and classy cabinet styles, illuminated lights, high profile storage units etc. the modular kitchens are safe and secure and the materials used for building modular kitchen are quite durable, safe and appealing and also offer lifetime durability.
They are also a statement piece in the kitchen and a big investment. We went with Silestone – a mix of natural quartz and other raw materials -- in Blanco Maple, a white color with varying grey flecks. Once the counters were in -- literally 6 days after we paid for them -- we were able to install the backsplash.
Aluminium adds its own advantages to an aluminium modular kitchen. It enhances the ambience of the kitchen, thus adding to the aesthetic, and is can be cleaned and maintained quite easily. The overall look of the kitchen is shiny and sleek. It is also a hygienic material, something that is an important consideration in a kitchen. The material is durable and resistant to scratches and moisture, both of which are to be expected in a kitchen on a regular basis.
