When planning to install a modular kitchen, it is essential to consider the layout and space available.
What is a U shaped modular kitchen?
U shaped modular kitchen is one of the most adaptable and flexible modular kitchen designs. As the name suggests, this kitchen type consists of three adjacent walls which form the shape ‘U’. It is suitable for small as well as large spaces.
U shaped modular kitchen provides large storage and counter space. It is a good option for big families. It is also convenient if you like to entertain your guests and chat while cooking. It also provides ample space for more than one person to utilize the kitchen at a time.
The most important elements in a U shaped modular kitchen are the hob, refrigerator, and sink. Placing these three elements needs proper planning for better and more convenient use of all the space available.
Here are a few tips to consider while setting up a U shaped modular kitchen:
1. Cabinets and drawers
Different sizes of cabinets and drawers can be designed and installed based on your requirement and to create more storage space. These cabinets can also be extended up to the ceiling to create an aesthetic look and feel. These high cabinets can be used to store extra serving dishes, plates, pots, and other kitchen items that are not in daily use.
2. Corner storage
U shaped kitchen design has two corners that can be utilized to store accessories or kitchen essentials. An open shelf can also be placed to store your kitchen essentials while giving it an elegant look.
3. Kitchen Sink
If one of the walls of your U shaped kitchen has a window, it is perfect to place your kitchen sink under it. It will provide you with better natural light and a view outside the window.
4. Peninsula layout
The U shape can make a kitchen more restricting, thus it gives an option to create a peninsula for island or seating sections. If the space allows, one of the edges or platforms of the modular kitchen can be extended to create a peninsula. It acts as a separate kitchen from other rooms and additionally provides the option to entertain or chat with the guests.
5. Additional island
If there is sufficient and adequate space, it provides an option for an island in the center. These islands can be used as a meal prep table, countertop area, etc. It will also provide you with additional storage cabinets and drawers.
