But that's not all. There is much more to know about modular kitchen. Come with us and we'll tell you all about them - the good and the bad side - and explain how to use them in your home:
Advantages of Modulated Kitchen
Price is undoubtedly one of the greatest attractions of this type of cuisine. They can cost up to 50% less than a planned model.

Nowadays it is possible to find a huge variety of modulated kitchens. A simple internet search already proves this. The diversity of models and colors is very advantageous because it can meet the most different tastes and styles of decoration.

4. Stores and Manufacturers to Choose

There are hundreds of places that sell this type of cuisine, especially through the internet on sites such as Casas Bahia, Americanas and Ponto Frio. Manufacturers also vary, the most sought after are Itatiaia, Bartira and Kappesberg.
Disadvantages of Modulated Kitchen
1. Too much or too little space
Not always the modular kitchen will fill exactly the space you have available. Either space will be lacking or there will be, unfortunately. If it's missing, then it's no use buying the module because it will not fit. But if the problem is there is space left, you can try to fill it with a niche, a shelf or utensil holder.
2. Visually can leave something to be desired
Another disadvantage that makes many people give up modulated kitchens is that they are exactly the way you see them. There is no way to change anything in the project. And that can be a dilemma, especially if her layout did not suit you very much.
Difference between modular kitchen and planned kitchen
This question must have crossed your mind: after all, what is the difference between the modulated kitchen and the planned kitchen? Basically: the price, delivery time and the customization of the project.
At planned kitchens are ... planned. That is, made to measure and fit perfectly in the place intended for them, without leftovers. With them it is possible to make better use of space and ensure greater functionality for the kitchen. Besides, you choose everything. The color, material, type of finish - frosted, glossy, lacquer - the number of doors, drawers, cabinets, shelves, handles, etc.
But all this has a price and a deadline. The planned kitchens end up having a greater cost precisely because they are a unique project and, consequently, also has a longer delivery period, since everything must be done in an exclusive and private way.
What you need to know before buying your modulated kitchen
1. Accurate kitchen measurements
This is one of the most important points. If you buy a module that has a centimeter larger than your kitchen, it will not fit and you will have thrown money away because there is nothing that can be done.
So before investing in a modulated kitchen check all the measurements, both the bottom and top of the kitchen.
2. Aesthetic planning
Another important thing to do is think of the visual part of the kitchen. Of course she must agree with space, but she has to be beautiful too. So choose a template that meets this item.
3. Storage requirements
What do you need to keep in your kitchen? What are your needs? Do you have a microwave, cooktop? Is the oven built-in, electric or gas? Need more drawers or more shelves? Do you have room for an air locker?
Answer all of these questions prior to purchase. Some modulated kitchen models have microwaves for microwaves or even the so-called hot tower, which is nothing more than a vertical cabinet with capacity for oven and microwave.
