Discover key considerations to keep in mind before investing in a modular kitchen, ensuring functionality, style, and practicality align with your needs. Learn how to tailor your kitchen layout, storage solutions, and design elements to reflect your personal style, creating a culinary space that harmonizes aesthetics with efficiency

A modular system uses every inch of space available in your kitchen, making it easier and more convenient to work in. With a personalised system, the size of your kitchen does not matter.


If you're opting for a modular kitchen home, here's a list of checkpoints to keep in mind:

Identify the Problem Areas in Your Kitchen

Is your kitchen falling apart with chipped cabinets and bad fittings? Are you hoping to refurbish your kitchen without making a dent in your pocket? Decide whether you want to go for a partial renovation or a complete overhaul, depending on your needs and budget.

Choose an Appropriate Kitchen Layout

The kitchen triangle divides your kitchen into three different parts –storage, cooking and cleaning. If you want to increase the functionality of your kitchen, this triangle should not be obstructed. Choose from straight or parallel kitchens, U-, L- or C-shaped kitchens, or one with a kitchen island, keeping the work triangle in mind.

Select a Proper Countertop

You can choose countertops of different colours and materials. It is recommended that you pick one that is visually appealing, durable, and easy to clean. If you are picking a particular colour, ensure that it complements your kitchen tiles and walls.

Ensure that You Install Adequate Ventilation

A proper ventilation system is essential for the maintenance of your kitchen. Sleek’s kitchen chimneys like Ruby (MS filter) or Kannedia X (aluminium cassette filter with LCD display) help by drawing oil vapours and smoke out of your kitchen. When you don’t pay attention to the ventilation system, it causes bad air to keep circulating, making the space unhealthy and foul-smelling.

Proper Lighting is an Essential Element

Installing proper lighting is equally important as it serves the dual purpose of increasing the visual appeal of your kitchen and making it safer. When your workspaces are well illuminated, you can move around easily and safely handle sharp tools.

Your Needs Decide the Cabinetry

If your kitchen is small, utilise maximum vertical space with wall-mounted cabinets. Indian households use a lot of water for cooking and cleaning. The constant exposure to water would cause cabinet shutters to decompose due to moisture. Marine ply shutters that are BWR (Boiling Water Resistant) are the best bet for your cabinets. With Sleek, you can choose from back-painted glass, veneer, solid wood, and Sleek Sunshine shutters.

Zero In on the Types of Drawers You Need

Opt for specialised modular kitchen drawers designed for cutlery, plates and spoons, pots and pans, etc. Sleek’s perforated cutlery basket has distinct compartments so you can store spoons, forks and knifes in different sections. Corner baskets like Merry Go Round are a brilliant storage solution because they utilise kitchen corner spaces that are difficult to access.

Pay Attention to Kitchen Flooring

Ignoring the flooring as a design element is a mistake. From laminates to porcelain flooring tiles, there is a range of options for you to choose from. Opt for flooring that is slip-resistant, easy to clean, and durable.

Install Kitchen Wall Tiles

Other than adding a colourful element to your kitchen space, tiles also serve as backsplash. Cleaning grease and stains off tiles is easier than cleaning them off paint or wallpaper. Ensure that the tiles fit in with the overall theme of your kitchen and are made of quality material.

Find a Reputed and Trust-worthy Vendor

A modular kitchen is an investment that will last you a long time. Cutting costs by compromising on quality or opting for a cheap vendor might hurt you in the future. From the earliest stages of kitchen planning to installation and maintenance help, a reputed vendor makes your life easier.


Do your research before opting for a modular kitchen. Amend this list to add other things to check before buying a modular kitchen as you see fit – it will serve as a good starting point before you sign on the dotted line.
