factory vs carpenter made

Apart  from your bedrooms and living room , your kitchen should also look good.For this very reason ,more and more  families are opting for it over carpenter made kitchens.Until a few years ago, most Indian home owners would either hire a local carpenter ,but the modular kitchen concept is gaining popularity these days .The question that arises is that whether you should  take the traditional route and get a carpenter to build you a kitchen or get a designer-approved fully-functional modular kitchen? Modular Kitchens are built with ready made cabinets,shutters,panels and other parts which are assembled together to form a single kitchen unit. The cabinets are constructed in a factory and shipped to the customer’s home and installed by the kitchen expert. Wall hangings, rotating tall units, lift-up flaps, soft-closing drawers -these things are basically the ones which a carpenter won’t be able to create for you .

When it comes to refurnishing the kitchen, we might get confused with the different options available in the market. Whether to go with the traditional way of getting a carpenter or to go with the factory made kitchen.

To make this choice easy we give you the unbiased preview of both the sides.
