WHAT IS MEANT BY MODULAR KITCHEN?
A modular kitchen is one that is made up of pre-made cabinet parts. These parts are fitted together to create a whole, functional kitchen design. Modular cabinets are popular in kitchen remodeling projects and are available in two main types: upper and lower units. There are also full units such as closets or pantries that fit from floor to ceiling. Since a modular kitchen is pre-made and purchased ready made in sections, often flat packed for home assembly, it's the opposite of a custom made kitchen that is built on site. A modular kitchen can be much less expensive than a custom made kitchen since everything is already constructed. The interesting thing about having a modular kitchen is that it can still be somewhat unique because different combinations of upper, lower and full units can be grouped to fit each kitchen's size and style. There are also many different cabinet finishes,counter top materials and handle hardware available to make each kitchen look like it was custom built to the homeowner's taste.
