Advantages of Separating Your Modular Kitchen Into Wet and Dry Kitchens

Advantages of Separating Your Modular Kitchen Into Wet and Dry Kitchens

The Indian kitchen has taken on a new dimension, evolving from factory-manufactured modular spaces into personalized units catering to unique needs of the family that will use it. The latest trend in kitchen design is separating a kitchen into wet and dry areas. Premium modular kitchens in Chennai have adopted this segregation for better workflows and utility. 

A wet kitchen is where the heavy cooking takes place. It’s where the chopping, boiling, frying, plating, etc. happens. It’s also where you store all your groceries, kitchen utensils, cutlery and other kitchenettes. This is where the sink, the dishwasher, stove and oven go. Think of it as the place where your big meals are made.

A dry kitchen is a mini-kitchen for light cooking. It’s perhaps where you put together quick meals, make your coffee and tea, and even host intimate breakfasts. Your fridge, toaster, coffee maker and a shallow sink for washing your butter knives and hands could go here. 

A wet kitchen is ideally a separate section in your home. It’s cut off from the main rooms, enabling smoke and smells to escape without notice. A dry kitchen is typically an extension of your dining area, seamlessly blending in with the décor. Placing your dry kitchen in the main dining area also makes it easy to access for a quick cup of coffee or a midday snack.

Why Separate Your Kitchens?

Separating your wet and dry kitchens improves functionality and makes cooking easier. For instance, if you have more than one family member handling the kitchen, it can become easier for one to prepare a full-fledged meal in the wet kitchen while the other helps with prep in the dry kitchen. Children can start learning how to cook in the dry kitchen with simple tasks like making a post-school snack.

Maximise space in your modular kitchen interiors

The segregation also increases storage space. Your wet kitchen houses all the important appliances and cooking material while your dry kitchen is equipped with essentials for times when you don’t want an elaborate meal.

Cleaning becomes simple too. A wet kitchen requires more extensive cleaning because of the heavy cooking that happens in there. A dry kitchen simply needs a swift wipe down. 

While designing your modular kitchen in Chennai or elsewhere, sectioning it into two spaces is better for workflows and design too. Your dry kitchen could also double up as a breakfast counter with the addition of a few breakfast stools. There’s room to experiment and add different elements when you separate these two spaces.
