Modular kitchens correspond with the sustained trend to have the cooking and living areas merge seamlessly into one another. Designers, manufacturers, planners and traders are aware of the advantages of flexible kitchen programmes and are bringing an increasingly large selection onto the market.
A popular alternative to the fitted kitchen are modern kitchen programmes consisting of individual modules. They can be rearranged again and again as desired and be set up anywhere in the room. This results in an open design appearance that makes the open-plan kitchen a communicative place where one is happy to meet with friends or family to cook and lounge together. Companies that offer flexible furniture and well-thought-out solutions for the modular kitchen will profit from this development.
The heart of the modular kitchen is usually a freestanding island. Simply everything that belongs to a complete kitchen can find its place in the practical and compact kitchen islands: stove, oven, cupboards, sinks, refrigerator or a bar can be individually incorporated. Other elements like cabinets and shelving modules complement the homey environment. Those who don't have enough space for a freestanding cooking island plan a peninsula linked with the wall or work surface.
Thanks to the unlimited setup possibilities, one can place every module and electrical device in the kitchen entirely as desired. Like when setting up the modules, there are hardly any limits to the selection of colours, style directions and materials. Sophisticated design and surfaces suitable for everyday use play just as important a role as the flexibility of the furniture. In this way, customers can freely assemble their dream kitchens according to the modular principle. Well-known kitchen manufacturers like Leicht, Rotpunkt, Schüller, Warendorf or Zeyko offer versatile brand furniture for various budgets and furnishing styles in their programme.
