What is the life of a modular kitchen?

There’s no easy answer to this question. The life of your kitchen rests on how well you treat it, and the materials you choose. The more resilient the materials, and the better your care and maintenance, the longer your kitchen will last.


What are the material options for kitchen cabinets?

We deal with an extensive range of materials and finishes, sourced from across the world. We have global vendor collaborations, which allow us to access the best quality materials from China, Italy and other material-rich countries.


What are the best materials (marine wood, hardwood, etc.) to build a modular kitchen?

The best materials to use for your kitchen are i ) Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) is built with a single board produced by binding together multiple wood fibres. It is a common type of engineered wood, has a smooth texture to it and offers an excellent finish when paired with a suitable laminate. ii) Commercial Plywood: It is produced from a specific type of wood panel that is manufactured after being processed. Its surface is laminated and polished that gives it an excellent finish. iii) Boiling waterproof (BWP) is an excellent material to use in the base module structure as it is water-resistant making it an ideal choice of material for a wet area such as the kitchen. iv) High-Density High Moisture Resistant board is made by combining fiber chips, forest wood waste to form a single layer that makes it a robust higher density board. It is a durable material and used for kitchen shutters.


What are the finishes for modular kitchen cabinets?

Common finishes for a modular kitchen include i) Veneer: Made of thin films of real wood veneer is commonly used in modular kitchens to give it a natural look and feel. It is typically used on cabinets, tops, and doors. ii) Laminates: Commonly known as Sun Mica in India) are the most commonly used finish in any modular kitchen and offers a great deal of durability for the price. It is usually made of plastic and an excellent substitute for natural wood and comes in a wide variety of patterns, colours and designs. iii) This finish is commonly used in kitchens due to its high resistance to staining and ease of maintenance. It is made of high-quality glass and comes in a variety of colours. Lacquer is extremely durable as it does not fade or lose its lustre over time. iv) Acrylic: Second to lacquered glass when it comes to maintenance, acrylics are used as a more affordable alternative in kitchens to give it the high gloss look of lacquered glass.


Is it true that MDF isn’t a good material to use in the kitchen?

Yes, MDF isn’t as durable or resilient as plywood, and therefore, isn’t the best choice of material for the kitchen.


Can I clean wooden kitchen cabinets with water?

The best way to clean wooden kitchen cabinets is by creating a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and warm water. Pour your mixture into a spray bottle and lightly mist your cabinets, allowing the moisture to sit for about a minute, before wiping it off with a soft cloth. If you’ve got grimy cabinets that appear beyond redemption, try adding liquid dishwashing detergent to the solution.


Is my modular kitchen susceptible to water damage?

The longevity of your modular kitchen hinges on the materials used. Marine plywood and water-resistant plywood cabinets, especially near water-affected areas, can augment the life of your kitchen. Other types of plywood may develop a weakened carcass due to water damage over time, so it’s wise to invest a little extra in quality materials to let your kitchen live longer.


What type of hob and chimney should I buy?

When it comes to buying a hob and chimney, your decision should pivot on how much heavy-duty your kitchen pulls on the daily. If your kitchen is always a frenzy of activity, it makes sense to invest in a hob with at least four burners. Also, consider whether you’d like your hob freestanding or mounted onto your counter. For your chimney, root your decision in wattage, form and suction power. A hooded chimney is always more efficient than a straight-line chimney, so if you’re an avid home cook, you may want to go for the former to keep the fumes and odours out.


Do all kitchens come with a built-in countertop?

Yes, they do! You can rest assured we’ll customise your countertop to material and finish of your choice.


Can a modular kitchen be assembled if the countertop is already fixed?

Yes, we can work around existing fixtures, although we might advise you to overhaul your countertop for something more suitable.


Can I customise my kitchen cabinets?

Of course! It’s your kitchen, after all! We give you the freedom to choose the style and material of your kitchen cabinets and give them an avatar that matches your design language.


What are the maintenance requirements for a modular kitchen?

Now if you own a modular kitchen and from a reputed brand then it will most likely be constructed with HDHMR wood or High-Density High Moisture Resistant wood panels that are engineered to tolerate high moisture and temperatures often found in kitchens. These cupboards are then sealed with finishes like laminate, acrylic, veneers or lacquered glass. So if you have a kitchen cupboard that’s finished with laminate, acrylic or lacquered glass, you may use your standard kitchen cleaning products to maintain them. Veneers are a little more sensitive to harsh chemicals as they are thin sheets of natural wood glued on to HDHMR. They are applied with a coat of varnish to protect them. However they don’t do well when exposed to strong cleaning agents.


Is my modular kitchen susceptible to water damage?

The longevity of your modular kitchen hinges on the materials used. Marine plywood and water-resistant plywood cabinets, especially near water-affected areas, can augment the life of your kitchen. Other types of plywood may develop a weakened carcass due to water damage over time. So it’s wise to invest a little extra in quality materials to let your kitchen live longer.


Do all kitchens come with a built-in countertop?

Yes, they do! You can rest assured we’ll customise your countertop to a material and finish of your choice.

Why doesn’t Design Cafe use particle board in kitchen interiors?

What hinges and fittings are used in Design Cafe kitchens?

We use a range of brands for hinges and fittings, including Hettich, Ebco, Casa Boma and Hafele.


What are the available shutter and door options for modular kitchens by Design Cafe?
