This design is suitable for a studio apartment or a 1BHK small apartment. All the working zones come on single wall such as cooking area, washing area and refrigerator.
Generally, this design can be workout with a 8feet to 10 feet of a single wall space, where a designer can easily create a space for all three zones. Arrangement can be done in many ways like sink-hob-fridge or fridge-sink-hob or hob-sink-fridge. Due to the small space the order of appliances or work zones doesn’t matter how one can fit in this design.

4 – Parallel Modular Kitchen Design :- Parallel or Gallery Kitchen Design is a way where cabinets are installed on two parallel wall. This type of design is simple to implement and very much restricted for a single user because of the compact size of aisle between base cabinets. This is also a provision for a small apartment size, where a parallel design helps a home owner to create space in other rooms.
An aisle width of 4 feet gives an ample space to open the shutters of base cabinet at a same time on both the walls. Also, to make sure there will be no chaos try avoiding placing cooking, sink and appliances in front of each other. Else placing any of the zone opposing each other will create a mess if two people want to work together on different zones. As there is no corner unit so tall unit and rolling shutters can be installed for more storage.
Advantage of having a parallel shape modular kitchen is as follows:
- Arrangement of cabinets for storage can be done easily while keeping a proper space between both of the sides.

Additional sitting space or a breakfast counter can be of a great help when you are cooking and you have guest at your home when you want to chat with them while cooking.
