Here are a few different types of Modular Kitchen Materials you should know about.

  • Natural Wood
  • When it comes to building a Modular Kitchen, Wood is an ever-favorite. The natural grain structure of wood offers a unique aesthetic attraction. Wood is also extremely durable. But good wood can be expensive and contributes a significant part to the overall budget allocation. The imperfections in wood can pose problems and add to the material cost. Wood is also prone to termite attacks.

    Opting for wood on the outside while choosing cheaper alternative materials for the inside is a cost-effective solution.

  • Plywood
  • Plywood is wood manufactured from sheets of veneer pressed together with adhesive resins. Though not as expensive as Natural Wood, Plywood too is slightly on the expensive side. Owing to its extreme strength and the many variants available like Water Resistant plywood, Fire Resistant plywood, Anti-fungal plywood, Termite Resistant plywood etc., Plywood is the most preferred material used in building Modular Kitchens.

  • Medium Density Fibre-board
  • Medium-Density Fibre-boards are engineered wood. They are manufactured by gluing together small wooden fibers with adhesive resins and hot-pressing the board. MDF boards are budget-friendly and easy on the wallet. They are also much better at resisting termites than natural wood.

  • Particle Board
  • Particle Boards are engineered wood manufactured using waste wood and sawdust. It is a green material. Particle Boards are light in weight and are used in applications where load applied is not much. They cannot withstand wear and tear as well as other engineered woods.

  • Stainless Steel
  • Stainless Steel is highly durable and strong. It can withstand loads and is easy to clean. It is resistant to water, does not rust and has antifungal and anti-microbial properties. Though on the expensive side, it is long lasting and counts as a one-time investment.

    Apart from these materials, Modular Kitchens can also be built using PU or Glass.

    Each material comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages and the application and material choice are determined by modular kitchen consultants & makers like Wood Life, who evaluate the design requirements, material preference, and budget considerations.
