We are embracing modular European-style kitchen systems
More homeowners are moving from the ubiquitous contractor-built kitchen systems to modular European-style kitchens, and it isn’t difficult to see why. The look is modern, streamlined and seamless, and uses imported systems at prices that aren’t out of reach. You can personalise your kitchen by taking your pick from a plethora of materials and finishes. There is plenty of flexibility to adapt to your space, too – modular cabinets come in a wide variety of widths and heights, and can be customised for internal configurations, from integrated waste bins to built-in dish rack systems. With careful planning and proper space management, you can create a lot of storage even in the smallest kitchens.
Ikea is known for its space saving designs and its range of kitchens is no exception. Plus, with the help of the Ikea Kitchen Planner web-based application, you can select and place your choice of furniture and fit to the exact measurements of your kitchen. You can also see how much it will cost. By creating a profile, you can save your plan directly onto the Ikea server and access it when you visit the Ikea store. There, you can get consultation from the Ikea Kitchen Specialists before making a purchase.

Italian manufacturer Poliform’s Varenna kitchens are manufactured in Italy, and boast beautiful lines and unique finishes, including melamine, quartz and Poliform’s signature lacquer colours in matte or gloss. The collections are designed by renowned international designers and architects, with thoughtful functionality such as soft-closing drawers equipped with internal lighting. The entry-level system Alea is popular for its great price point and clean look. The absence of handles on its doors gives it a sleek, crisp touch. The My Planet series, on the other hand, is ideal for families with young children thanks to its high gloss acrylic finish. Closer to home, local kitchen specialist Signature
Kitchen has rolled out the Signature collection which comprises four distinct looks to suit various lifestyles. If you prefer a country style kitchen then the Rustic Country range is for you. This modular kitchen series has a traditional design that channels a warm, cosy atmosphere, heightened by a rich earthy colour scheme. The doors feature natural oak grains with matching rustic handles. Visit Signature Kitchen’s flagship showroom in Kota Damansara for more ideas.
