Difference between Semi Modular Kitchen and Fully Modular Kitchen

Before finalizing your kitchen design, it is important to consider the differences between a semi-modular kitchen and a fully modular kitchen. The construction, design, and functionality play a major role in both options. Let’s take you through which option works best for you!

Fully Modular Kitchen

A modular kitchen is built with factory-made modules that are installed on-site by the interior designer in an empty kitchen space. Let’s take a look at the entire process of constructing a modular kitchen.

1. The builder or contractor will hand over the empty kitchen space

The kitchen is left as an empty space by the builders during or post construction for the interior designers to take over the kitchen project.

2. Complete kitchen will be built by an interior designer or kitchen dealer

The interior designer or dealer will do a project survey, take measurements and look at the potential for designs in the kitchen area.

3. Fully customizable designs

Designers plan and execute all customizations, space planning, and innovative designs without limitations while the kitchen space is empty.

4. Kitchen will be built as per industry standards

Modular kitchen units are of industry-standard sizes that fit into every space plan and don’t have any constraints during installations.

5. No patchwork

A brand new kitchen is entirely constructed in an empty space and is fully equipped with countertop finishes, cabinetry, and appliances. Empty kitchens create the opportunity to build designs without civil work or patchwork.

6. Possibility to dismantle and reassemble modules

Factory-made modules can be easily dismantled and reassembled. Whether you consider a redesign or moving into a new space, you can utilize all existing modules for your new project.


Semi Modular Kitchen

A semi-modular kitchen is a kitchen design with a blend of civil work constructions along with modular cabinetry by interior designers. Semi-modular kitchens cost less than fully modular kitchens as the project is built over existing civil construction.

Here are the key factors of constructing a semi-modular kitchen.

1. Kitchen handed over with existing installations

The civil work constructor or contractor will hand over the kitchen with a granite countertop and sink attached to the concrete structure in the kitchen.

2. Permanent structure limitations

The granite countertop could be an obstacle for interior designers as they won’t be dismantled. This leads to limited scope for customizations in the space.

3. Certain standard-sized kitchen modules won’t fit into spaces after civil work

Modules come with a standard size that may not always be suitable for civil construction. This may cause sizing and design restrictions depending on the project plan.

4. Civil work leads to a patchwork

Patchwork is required while working over an existing civil structure and the installation of modules takes longer than usual.

5. Dismantling and reassembling is not possible

As the structure can not be dismantled or reassembled, you will have to leave it all behind before redesigning your space or even moving out of the house.
