Modular kitchen is one of the most commonly thrown around terms. What it means is a pre-designed kitchen interior that comes in modules that are of fixed shape and sizes. These modules could either be factory-made or customized to suit the client’s needs. Modular kitchens use high-quality laminates for their cabinets. Sometimes the plywood is lined by aluminium to increase its durability.
