Kitchens Designed For You
Back Panel Lamination
The back panels of cabinets are recessed and laminated on both sides to protect the material from moisture. The panels do not touch the wall, ensuring that dampness from the wall does not seep into the cabinets.
The above-floor skirting in PVC is moisture-resistant and will endure daily wet-wiping easily. It is removable to ensure that the floor area underneath the cabinets can be cleaned when required while enabling easy movement in the kitchen by virtue of its positioning.
Water Cut Granites
All our granite countertops are sealed, ensuring that the surface is resistant to water and heat. Plus, they are designed with watercut detailing, so in the event of spills, no water drips into the cabinets below.
Slats For Ventilation
We place stainless steel cabinets in wet areas, directly below the sink, or in the utility area. This facilitates easy cleaning and durability despite the constant exposure to moisture. In addition, slats for ventilation below the sink and the cylinder unit ensure you aren’t hit with a wave of nasty odors every time you open the cabinets.
Hidden but easily accessible, these Tambor units are a classy addition to any kitchen. Utilized to store daily-use electrical appliances, it comes in three color options, glass, white, and mocha. The shelves can be as practical or decorative as you want, with both glass and wooden shelves available with lighting for added effect. Not only do they keep your counters clutter-free, but they also add warmth and charm to your kitchen.
Handles with sharp edges have caused immeasurable harm, from scraped shins to torn clothes. Our solution includes kitchens with or without handles. Handle-less kitchens are achieved using Gola or edge profiles, wherein you can choose the floor and profile that gives you the desired effect. In addition, our handles have multiple finishes, including chrome plated, black, and gold, with matching knobs.
Wonderfully easy to maintain, all you need is soap and water to clean our countertops. They are also scratch resistant, which makes them perfect to use as a work surface to prep vegetables, slice fruits, and more.
- 1. What are modular kitchens?
- Modular units help you make the most of the available space, and give you plenty of storage with a minimal footprint. The same is true for kitchens as well. Designed as standardised components, each unit is made to fit together to create a whole, functional kitchen.
In fact, because the units are pre-built, modular kitchens tend to be more cost effective than custom built kitchens. Plus, since our kitchens use standardised measurements, cabinets can be changed, upgraded, or replaced without having to redo the whole kitchen.
- 2. Will you install the kitchen around an existing slab or countertop?
- Of course. Our semi-designed kitchen units are designed to suit kitchens with pre-installed countertops. While we recommend asking your builder to not install a countertop (since it’s easier to work with a completely empty space), we can also work around pre-installed countertops to design a kitchen that’s just right for you.
- 3. Could you tell me a little more about semi-designed kitchens?
- Our semi-designed kitchens offer all the advantages of our modular kitchens. Only in this case, some modifications are made to fit existing countertops. For instance:
Whether your pre-installed countertop comes with or without a platform, we will make the best use of space. The carcass structure of base cabinets is tailor-made to the right height and thickness, to have them seamlessly blend in with existing structures.
To reduce the amount of customisation (therein saving time and money), horizontal and vertical fillers will be added to the carcass of base cabinets. Fillers can be easily modified to fit existing structures, even when placed at odd angles.
- Detachable Skirting
For semi-designed kitchens without existing platforms, we attach skirting with the help of magnetic fixtures to the carcass of base cabinets. This way, you can detach them easily without the help of a handyman, whenever you need to clean your cabinets or those hard-to-reach crevices under them.
- Lesser Wood for Lesser Deterioration
The base cabinets of semi-designed kitchens use just the right amount of wood. With no back panelling, you never have to worry about water ruining the inside of your cupboards. Plus, lesser material means lesser wastage and more cost savings.
- 4. Will you renovate my existing kitchen?
- While we do not undertake any major civil work, we can create a new kitchen for you around an existing countertop or slab, or once your existing kitchen has been dismantled. Please note, we currently do not dismantle existing kitchens.
- 5. Can I buy individual modular units, like tall units or an island, to add to an existing kitchen?
- Unfortunately not. All our modular kitchen units and accessories are only available to customers who choose to have their entire kitchen built by Urban Ladder. We currently do not sell units piecemeal.
- 1. Will I be charged for the consultation with your designer?
- Yes, the consultation with our designer is a paid service. The booking fee includes up to 2 designs. Please note, the booking fee is redeemable against any Urban Ladder purchase. We will email the coupon code to you once the payment is confirmed.
We will visit you with samples of shutter finishes, carcass materials (Marine grade plywood and PLPB), countertops, and more. Our designer will help you design the kitchen you want, keeping in mind the space available, your aesthetics, and existing décor (if any).
- 2. What if I want more than 2 iterations of the design?
- We’re happy to accommodate as many changes as you’d like. Post second design, 10% of order amount will be charged. You can then request for any number of changes, till you agree on a design you love. This amount will be adjusted against your kitchen order total.
- 3. What are the payment terms once I commission my Urban Ladder kitchen?
- An advance equal to 40% of the total amount is required to book your Urban Ladder kitchen. The remaining 60% of the amount is due prior to the delivery of your kitchen.

- Cleaning of kitchen cabinets and shutters

- 6. What if my kitchen needs servicing after the first year?
- We are happy to help. However, the service will be chargeable at Rs. 1500 per visit, after the first year.
- 1. Can I customise the kitchen design completely?
- You can customise our kitchens to a large extent - we have 6 layouts and an extensive range of modular units, semi-designed units, colours and finishes to choose from. While our modular kitchen cabinets come in pre-determined sizes and cannot be customised for height, depth and width, the base-cabinets of semi-designed units are customised to suit existing countertops.
- 2. Do you have different themes to choose from?
- All our kitchens are contemporary by design. But with our range of shutter finishes, appliances, countertops and more, you can create a kitchen that’s classic, modern, or a mix of both. If you already have a theme in mind, our designer will work with you to help you bring it to life.
- 3. What options do you have for shutter finishes?
- You can choose from laminate and acrylic finishes in a wide variety of colours and textures (for laminates). We also have glass-front shutters for wall units. All our shutters have been selected for their properties of easy maintenance and ease of use.
- 4. What materials are your kitchen cabinets built from?
- The skeleton or the carcass of our kitchen cabinets can be built entirely from marine grade plywood–Boiling Water Resistant plywood, or a mix of marine grade plywood and HMR (High Moisture Resistance) pre-laminated particle board. Should you opt for the latter, we will use marine grade plywood for the wet areas of the kitchen, i.e., around the sink, and (HMR) PLPB for the dry areas.
- 5. What are the benefits of having the kitchen in BWR plywood or BWR plywood + HMR PLPB?
- The benefit of both a BWR plywood kitchen, and a kitchen built with a mix of of BWR plywood + HMR PLPB is to ensure water resistance. A kitchen built entirely from BWR plywood has a higher resistance to water, as compared to a kitchen built from a mix of BWR plywood and HMR PLPB. The latter option is more pocket friendly for those looking for a cost-effective choice.
- 6. Are there additional accessories I can buy with the modular kitchen?
- All Urban Ladder modular kitchens come with nearly infinite choices for making it a space that’s the right mix of function and form. You can add mid-level accessories, tall units, drawer units instead of shelves for the base cabinets, and a whole lot more. Our design consultant will guide you through all the options possible to ensure that you get a kitchen that’s just right.
Please note that we do not offer ovens, microwaves, refrigerators, and other white goods.
