Choosing the Right Kitchen

Do I have a choice in colour and design with Mr. Kitchen?

You can choose from a spectrum of colours and designs to create your dream kitchen. Many shutter options are available for your kitchen, such as matt, glossy, lacquered, solid surface, acrylic in ply or mdf. Wide range of aluminium profile glass shutters are available for a sleeker look. Additionally, there are rolling shutters in PVC or glass for easy access and added aesthetic value.

What about accessories and kitchen appliances?

A kitchen without appliances is an incomplete functional space. A wide variety of accessories are available. However, since no modular kitchen company manufactures its own appliances, you can consult the designer and buy them from any company of your choice. Keeping the designer involved will help you make the right purchase in terms of compatibility.

Is there any particular kind of tile/counter top/flooring
I should use in the kitchen?

There are two parts to your kitchen: A non-visible area of the modular furniture which can be covered with plain tiles and the visible area, or the “dado”, where you can flaunt your creative side. You can choose to use good designer tiles, composite material or even put granite for your worktop!

Granite and composite are the popular options for a counter top. While people prefer granite for its hardness, Kalinga stone, Caesar stone or Korean are current favourites amongst composite stones.

With a number of options, you can truly indulge in your kitchen flooring. Feel free to pick from ceramic tiles, marble, mosaic tiles, vitrified tiles etc. However, do keep in mind that the kitchen flooring has to bear heavy items like gas cylinders, refrigerator etc. Hence, choose a strong, hard surface that won’t scratch easily and needs minimum maintenance. 

Is a chimney necessary?

Most kitchens have an exhaust fan. You would have noticed grime deposits on the fan blades and the walls of the kitchen. This happens because the air has to travel up to the exhaust fan. Before it reaches the fan, the oil, smoke, vapours etc. get deposited on the surface they come in touch with. Further, the fans are so far from the hob, the vapours spread into the house, making it smell like your dinner!

To ensure quick expulsion of these materials from the kitchen, the chimney is placed right above the hob/stove. From here all the dust, grime etc. is sucked and thrown out of the kitchen by powerful blowers of the chimney. Not only do chimneys ensure a cleaner breathing environment in your kitchen, they are quite functional with built-in lights etc. Plus they are designed in a way that they only add to the beauty of your kitchen.

Do I have a choice in shutters?

You can choose to go solo or mix and match these to bring out the best in your kitchen.

Many shutter options are available for your kitchen, such as matt laminated (on mdf or ply), glossy laminated (on mdf or ply), PU painted and lacquered (on mdf), acrylic ( on ply or mdf). Wide range of aluminium profile plain or back painted glass shutters are available for a sleeker look. Additionally, there are rolling shutters in PVC or glass for easy access and added aesthetic value.

How to maintain my modular kitchen?

When you’ve made your kitchen with so much care and concern, taking care of it in a certain manner will help it last long. This is what you can do:

  • Regularly clean the cabinets and drawers with a soft cloth. The units and drawers would be made of wood or similar material, so do not use water to clean them
  • Do not keep harsh chemicals and detergents in your cleaning kit. They can spoil the design and the finishing of the worktops. It is advisable to use mild cleaning agents to preserve the colours and design of the kitchen
  • It is a good practice to keep the drawers and cabinets of the kitchen closed while cooking. If something does fall into them, clean them immediately
  • Use a dry cloth to wipe any water that may have spilled out of the sink. Ensure the plumbing does not get blocked due to garbage – dispose small food particles properly
  • Operate your drawers and doors gently, do not bang them shut to ensure longevity. If you observe any abnormal sound or restricted movement, call the dealer immediately
  • Use a soft cloth and a mild cleanser instead of sharp objects like knives and scrubs to clean the surfaces
