Kitchen Planning - Step by Step
The kitchen forms the central space in the kitchen House, which must be practical but also practicable to meet all requirements. It requires sufficient storage space, as well as seating and ample space to accommodate installations and fixtures. At the same time, the available space is often limited, but only to a limited extent can all ideas and wishes be brought in equally.
In this article, we will show you how to arrange your kitchen better and thus enable efficient work.
The room divide ideal
Divide the room according to its functionality, in order to reduce or accelerate paths and handles.
- Arrange the rinsing area so that there is no space left to park or work on. Here it is assumed that the right-hander, since the movement can thus bring the best. There is space to store dirty dishes and to prepare food, in addition a storage space with hinged doors in the cupboards to prevent unnecessary searching.
- Basically, the cooking center should be located, since in this way several people can be in the kitchen at the same time can stop. Pots and pans should be stowed away to the left, as well as a part of the work surface are used to store necessary cooking utensils. So every item is easy to grasp, after cooking, the worktop placed to the right of the sink can be used to refine the meals and for further work.
- The refrigerator, if possible with integrated freezer, should be in the free corner near the door , Thus, a use far away from further work in the kitchen is possible, moreover, the path between the respective work areas is coordinated. Here, too, can be created an ascending tray, such as for heavy kitchen utensils or for decorations that would only take space elsewhere.
For small kitchens
As mentioned before, each kitchen should be arranged so that as possible many people can use them at the same time. For this reason, it is recommended, especially in kitchens with a small width, an arrangement in a U-shape. To divide the space accordingly, by using the natural light source of the window holistically, the space is structured and tidier.
- Use a sliding door to prevent any area of the kitchen from being opened. It should be chosen in natural tones of wood, which ensures a good room climate, especially in daylight.
- Use walls occasionally to insert wall shelves and use them as additional storage space. Limit yourself to one shelf per wall, otherwise the room is too full and the freedom of movement suffers. The wall, which you can see mostly when working, can be color-adjusted or embellished with wall motifs.
- If space is available, an L-shaped kitchen can also be fitted. For this, however, a minimum width, starting from the end of the built-in wardrobes, of two meters is required. The room can be used for a square table with two chairs, but must not restrict access to the back of the kitchen. A tip: Folding tables, or tables that can be mounted on the wall, are a solution for smaller rooms. Here you can emphasize this dining area with color patterns and shapes, but should make sure that enough natural light is given.
- If there is a sloping roof in the room, so you can use them for installations such as lights or cooker hoods. The important thing is that the wall next to the window with cabinets or shelves is used so that the slope is optimally introduced. Also try to keep the rough layout of the kitchen, so the fridge on the left side, then the kitchen line, then the sink and then a continuous worktop to the end of the room.
