Convenient, functional, hassle-free, and attractive – these seem to be the buzzwords people use when they want to design or re-design their homes. It’s no wonder, then, that thousands of Indians are opting for modular kitchens over carpentry-made kitchens – they tick all the boxes of what a homeowner wants. Gone are the days when one had to run behind carpenters to do up their homes when one was billed exorbitantly for sub-par work and had their home renovation projects riddled with delays and obstacles.
One of the most important reasons why people choose modular furniture is because of the visual appeal. Offering a contemporary and elegant look, modular kitchens have a sleek, sophisticated appearance as they are factory-made using German technology. Clients can choose glossy finishes or matt ones and are spoilt for choice in terms of colour and laminates. Adding a modular kitchen or modular bedroom to your home gives it an instant rich appeal, thanks to its glossy surfaces and futuristic appearance.
While carpenter-made kitchens are limited to the style and skill of your carpenter, when it comes to modular kitchens, your furniture is designed by specialists and there are hundreds of designs to pick from. Choose from what’s trending or pick designs that suit your taste and style. Browse through Pinterest and Instagram for design inspiration and bring your unique ideas to life. Because the furniture is designed using technology and machinery, you can rest easy knowing that what you see will be what you get.
Nobody likes having carpenters hovering around in and around their home for months on end – let alone like the dust and noise. And it is because of this inconvenience that many people put off their home renovation plans until they can’t anymore. With modular kitchens, most of the work is done off-site and once the materials get to your home, it is ready to assemble in as little as 48 hours. That’s right – you can have a spanking new kitchen ready in a weekend!
As long as your civil kitchen looks and functions the way it is supposed to, your carpenter’s work is done. However, it is only months later that you’ll notice peeling laminates and shoddy workmanship – for which you’ll have to pay extra to fix. Thousands of Indians are opting to get their kitchens done by the best modular kitchen companies, like Bliss Space Goa, thanks to their free maintenance for a year and their 7-year guarantee.
The cost of your modular kitchen will depend on the size of your space, the layout you’d like, the materials and finishes you choose, and the accessories/appliances you want. You will know the cost you will have to pay right from the beginning of your buying process. This is unlike how it would work if you were to opt for a carpenter-made kitchen, where the carpenter merely estimates the time and cost of materials required. The amount of money that you would end up paying will invariably work out to be higher than what you had budgeted for or expected.
Customizing your home with specific requirements can be overwhelming because you don’t know whether your ideas and inspiration will translate well into your space. Thankfully, as an industry-standard, modular furniture companies allow you to virtually see your home in 3D. Once you see what it is going to look like, you can approve or change your mind. No one wants to pay for a finished product they don’t like, do they?
Cabinets come to your home fully assembled; hence kitchens can be fitted even after the last coat of paint has been completed. This means there won’t be any hammering, sawing, dust, and noise for months on end, and you won’t have to re-schedule your routine around carpenters. All it takes is a couple of mess-free days on-site for the work to be complete.
As with any house repair, re-modelling, or carpentry work in Indian homes, it is a given that the home-owner needs to be around, supervising and ensuring that things are done on time and correctly. However, with modular furniture, you already know what you’re getting and even how your kitchen or bedroom will look on completion. Your furniture is designed as per your tastes, produced by machines, and assembled by skilled professionals, so your intervention and supervision are not required at all.
Modular kitchens come in all shapes and sizes. So no matter the size of your kitchen, a customized solution will ensure that you’re making the best use of space. Modular kitchens are practical, manageable, and stylish, allowing you to choose everything from the height and colour of your countertops to the storage of utensils and appliances.
While with carpenter-made kitchens, your budget will have you making many ‘this or that’ choices in terms of wood, design, and style, when it comes to modular kitchens, you can get much more bang for your buck. While getting a modular kitchen for your home is possible in as little as Rs. 80,000, you can choose to spend more or less depending on the material you’d prefer, the finish for the facia, and how many accessories are being used, and more.
With more and more Indians building state-of-the-art homes, it is only natural that they are opting for modular kitchens to add to the style, practicality, and the way it can be easily customized to one’s needs, style and budget.
