As we mentioned earlier, the design of a kitchen depends on factors such as the layout and the total area that it covers. Additionally, the type of materials and appliances will affect the overall cost. Usually, the straight-line design is the least expensive since it doesn’t occupy as much space as the other layouts. Similarly, an L-shaped layout will cost less than a U-shaped one.
In terms of the materials used, granite for the countertops will work out more expensive than one made of Sunmica or Acrylic. Similarly, cabinets made of natural wood will be costlier than those made of plywood and laminates.
The following are the approximate starting prices:
L-shaped: Simple kitchen designs with an L-shaped layout start from INR 1,50,000. For higher quality material and appliances, the price can double.
U-shaped: Depending on the area of the kitchen, the cost of a modular kitchen in a U-shaped layout can range from INR 1,50,000 to INR 5,00,000.
Straight line: This design is the cheapest and can be found at prices starting INR 1,15,000.
Galley-style: The galley or parallel layout works out approximately twice as expensive as a straight-line design. It can range between INR 2,00,000 and INR 5,00,000.
While modular kitchens provide the convenience of purchasing and installation within a few days, they need a foundation of electrical wiring and plumbing lines at the right locations to ensure that the kitchen is functional as well as beautiful. We recommend consulting a professional kitchen planner or interior designer who has a crew that is experienced in designing and installing kitchens. From discussing the ideal kitchen designs that are best suited for the area in the home to the various materials, appliances and finishes that can be used, the professional will simplify the process of getting the kitchen of one’s dreams.
