Planning A Kitchen

Kitchen – the heart of every home. No other part of the dwelling will not be able to create such a strong and pleasant atmosphere of coziness and warmth, which creates a home kitchen. All we are in the kitchen a lot of time – where we prepare breakfast and dinner, relax, watch TV, and listen to music, read a newspaper or just talk. Kitchen – an integral part of our lives and that is why the process of selecting a new kitchen must be handled carefully and responsibly, because of how we will have will depend on in our house almost everything.

Working with a kitchen there are some factors to consider:

•> You will stay within the limits of your current kitchen?
•> Would you like more space?
•> You will expand into other areas of your home?
•> You think of an addition?

This is the time to start thinking about preparing a preliminary budget. This can help eliminate frustration later raising expectations more realistic about the whole project cost. The good news is that there is a variety of options available to fit any budget. And also consider purchasing appliances that have a wide range of uses:

There are several options for the kitchen environment: normal (along the wall), kitchen-galley (parallel rows of furniture), corner (along the two walls), U-shaped (along the three walls), kitchen island (all the furniture in the middle of the room).

Your choice will primarily depend on the size of the kitchen.

•> Basic kitchen suitable for small spaces. All the furniture in it stands along one wall. In a kitchen wall to the ceiling can be used for extra shelving. Disadvantage: can be crowded kitchen cabinets, and there would be little free space. But this is not a problem if the office kitchen is expected to eat ready-made meals.

•> Kitchen-galley consists of two rows of furniture. This type of cuisine is appropriate when windows and doors are at opposite ends of the room. The minimum width of a kitchen – 240 cm

•> Circular kitchen – the most common variant. All are nearby and there is room for dining table.

•> U-shaped kitchen gives you great scope for the work. But for a kitchen needs a lot of places – at least 8 m2 area.

•> Kitchen Island – more home option. It provides additional work surface, fixed or mobile, in normal or angled kitchen. But for this island should be a lot of places!

If we talk about color kitchens, It is generally better to avoid saturated and contrasting colors and complex patterns on the working surfaces of tables and small areas of walls.

Must choose carefully materials for the facade, housing and tabletops. For example, the facade can be made of solid, veneer, plastic, glass, particle board, etc. In general, it turns a lot of options, including the need to choose “your”, which is ideal for your design.

Convenience food largely depends on its planning, when incorrect placement of furniture the size of the kitchen lost its relevance. Also it is necessary to find out the correct location of particular items of kitchen furniture and appliances. Indeed, without an oven, stove and refrigerator in the kitchen becomes a mere collection of furniture.

It is important not to forget and about lighting (ceiling light, work light, the light away from the walls, the light above the dining table), because of the lighting in kitchen and appliances may look quite different than on the exposition in a store, where everything is thought out.

Should also determine whether to use food as a dining room, and I need a dining table and chairs, and if so, how to pick up the pieces, based on the design of the kitchen …

Kitchen-galley with equipment
