by Shannon Dauphin

The modular kitchen can be the perfect solution for those who have very little room for a kitchen, and it can be especially suitable for those who love streamlined, modern kitchen design. Modular kitchen designs turn the "bigger is better" attitude on its head by introducing the necessary elements of a kitchen, all wrapped up in a smaller package.

Interesting Angles in Modular Kitchen Design

Modular kitchen designs can take many forms. You might choose to make only one part of your kitchen a modular unit, such as that pantry that needs more shelves or pull-out drawers. Modular cabinets work well for homes where space is limited, and can include something as simple as a lazy susan, or something as intricate as a drawer organizer that has space for even the tiniest appetizer forks!

Modular kitchen design can be taken to an attractive extreme for studio apartments, lofts, and other small living areas that need a kitchen but might not have the room for more traditional designs. Modular kitchens that can be rolled from one area of the house to another can make entertaining easy for those with a smaller place. They can also provide a kitchen where one might not have been planned, such as in a converted warehouse space.

Your modular kitchen design should take into account the areas where you need the most storage, as well as areas where you might be able to hide something away, such as a fold-down countertop that covers a flat-top range, thus creating more prep space.

Whatever your small kitchen design needs, a modular kitchen is sure to have something that suits your fancy and your budget.
