A distance of at least 1.2 meters between the two working areas allows unrestricted access to the base kitchen cabinets.
3. L- Shaped Modular Kitchen
An L- Shaped Modular Kitchen solves the problem of maximizing corner space, and it’s a smart design for small and medium-sized kitchens. The versatile L-shaped kitchen design consists of countertops on two adjoining walls that are perpendicular forming an L. L-shaped kitchen allows an easy working triangle between cooker, sink, and refrigerator.
4. U-Shaped Modular Kitchen
A U-Shaped Modular Kitchen is more reliable and practical with three walls of cabinets and appliances and it is ideal for both large and medium-sized rooms with a maximum of workspace and storage. However, it can become a bit of enclosed space with all cabinets and the floor area will be a lot less than any other shape of the kitchen.
5. Island Kitchen
The Island Modular Kitchen is ideal for a large as well as an open plan kitchen. In this kitchen, the island unit is a separate work surface which makes the kitchen feels wide and spacious. Island kitchen has appliances and storage at one end and the main island will have a place to eat and to prepare food and small storage.
