A fitted kitchen incorporates all fitted elements into the layout of the kitchen. The benefit of a fitted kitchen is to tie together your cabinets in a really slick and modern way so that it appears as a single entity cleverly fitting together all your drawers, units and appliances with a clean modern finish. Often, this type of kitchen design will feature appliances built into the walls and a decor that emphasizes a blended look. Most fitted kitchen designs will also incorporate cabinets that enclose appliances, such as microwave ovens. These cabinets are typically constructed of wood, although laminate or other materials may be used. Since the typical fitted kitchen unit is customized according to specifications, every piece will blend well. Each piece of furniture, closet, and cupboard generally fits into the shape of the room or into the walls.
A fitted kitchen is also designed according to the basic functions, activities, and needs of the families who use them. For instance, if a family requires spacious storage or a pantry, the storage closets in that kitchen will be large. A smaller kitchen built to accommodate a smaller family, on the other hand, may require smaller fitted units. Other features of a fitted kitchen may include built-in shelves to store pots and pans or food items and customized counter tops.
