For the sake of helping people, we will first explain what a "Modular Kitchen" means. after that, we will take you through some of the details regarding the kitchens as well as share some more information related to the various finishes. The approximate cost for each finish is being mentioned alongside.
A Modular Kitchen is basically a term used for a kitchen which is made in modules. These individual modules are then screwed together to make the whole kitchen. Each module is made as per standard depending on the purpose it is supposed to fulfill. For this reason, a Modular Kitchen is functionally very strong.
Mostly, yes but it is wrong to assume that a Modular Kitchen has to be made in a factory. As long as it is made using the concept of modularity, it can be made even on site. In fact, in a lot of places, modular kitchens are even made using DIY techniques. Please note that if made properly in a factory, the kitchen has to be modular. Please check out this video to understand what we mean.
There are several advantages to a modular kitchen. Some of these are assembly, construction, cleanliness as well as time of execution due to factory execution. It’s easy to simply replace a module instead of changing the whole kitchen if a small part has been damaged. Assume that there has been a plumbing leakage which has destroyed the area near the sink. In a traditional kitchen, that will mean changing the whole area since removing one side will mean removing the whole woodwork. In a modular framework, only the modules which have been destroyed can be taken out and replaced.
Apart from these, there are several other advantages and disadvantages of a modular kitchen. All these have been discussed in much greater detail in this article on Modular Kitchen.
Briefly, any finish is possible in a modular kitchen. But many of them require special machines or training and hence companies do not do thise. A small list is given here:

Keep in mind that this is where a lot of interior designers or contractors fool you while sharing the initial quotes. To know more about this, please read this Modular Kitchen article.
