How to design a kitchen


When designing a kitchen, proceed from ergonomics and safety rules</a>

If for a man the main working area is his office or workshop, then for a woman this is definitely a kitchen.

And being the working area, the kitchen should be fully functional, comfortable and beautiful. Do you have the opportunity to change the situation in the kitchen?

Then try to plan in advance, where there will be outlet outlets, how you will install the hood, where you place the stove, refrigerator, sink.

Most of the place in the kitchen is a kitchen set, when choosing which you need to take into account many nuances.



Before you go to the store and spend money,Sit down and plan your kitchen plan. First measure the room. Most manufacturers of kitchen sets offer the services of a gauger. He will take measurements, and then according to his data will create an individual project of your kitchen.


If you do not want to pay for this service, thenTake the measurements yourself. Measure the distance from the wall to the wall at a level of 10 cm from the floor, then the same distance at the level of the countertop (90 cm from the floor) and at the height of the hanging cabinets (2 m). Also, you need to measure the length of the walls at the same distances (10, 90, 200cm). Remove the distance between the gas pipe and the wall. A number of measurements need to be done from the floor to the vent, to the ceiling, the windowsill, the window. Then calculate how large all cabinets, shelves and drawers should be. Count on the real needs of your family. All these dimensions you will need to bring to the manufacturer or seller and you will pick up a suitable in size technology.


As for the layout, that is, severalRules to make it ergonomic. There are three main zones in the kitchen: a zone for thermal processing of food, a zone for storing food and a zone for cooking and washing. This is the so-called working triangle. The distance from the sink to the stove should not be more than 90 cm, and between the sink and the refrigerator not more than 2 m. In general, the entire working area should be located in the range of 3-6 m.


Another necessary condition? This is the correct placement of the plate. It should be at least 0.5 m from the window, if there are curtains on the window, then a minimum of one meter.


The height of the table tops, the headset, plates, sinks, ideallyShould be below the elbow by 10-12cm. The location of furniture in the kitchen is possible in a linear version. If the kitchen is small, then this option is optimal. In this case, in the middle of the headset is a sink, and a refrigerator and a stove at the edges. The cooking zone is located between the cooker and the sink. Hanging shelves and cabinets hang on the wall above the entire working area.


If the kitchen is spacious or connected to the living room,Then perhaps an island arrangement, when the sink and the stove are carried out to the middle of the room. Often, in this planning, the countertop is combined with a bar counter.


The angular variant of the location of the headset is optimalFor a standard square kitchen 9-10m2. If the three walls are free, then the headset is placed in an-shaped way. In this case, you can arrange work areas on three sides of the kitchen.
