When planning and developing a kitchen design, the question immediately arises about the furniture - how to arrange the kitchen set and the rest of the furniture so that the hostess can be comfortable in such a kitchen and her household. Options for furniture arrangement can be different, but many opt for a straight kitchen of 3 meters, a variety of design options which are presented in the photo.
The interior of the direct kitchen will never be boring, especially if you add it with modern appliances and stylish decor.
Features direct kitchen
Direct kitchen - the best option for planning, suitable for any room. If the length of at least one kitchen wall is not less than 3 meters, you can safely choose this option - the linear kitchen will allow you to fit all the necessary appliances and utensils.
Linear kitchen can be supplemented with upper cupboards, entresols
Direct furniture wall is installed along one wall, which allows you to free up the remaining space. This option is to choose if:
- You have a limited area;
- The family consists of one or two people, the hostess does not need to spend much time in the kitchen;
- The room has the form of a pencil case, other options for arranging furniture are impossible;
- In the kitchen of a large area you want to equip a cozy dining area with a corner sofa;
- The kitchen has a complex shape, for example, there are niches, protrusions.
Open shelves will help make the room easier and more spacious.
The size of a straight kitchen - 3 or more meters - will depend on the size, shape of the whole room, if there is a niche - on its size. The best is considered the option when a direct kitchen set is installed directly in a niche or from wall to wall, as in this photo. In this case, there are no dangerous corners that could be hurt.
Rectilinear models fit perfectly in rooms with niches.
In order for the hostess to be comfortable and convenient, it is customary to apply the rule of the triangle - washing, stove and refrigerator should be at the same distance from each other when planning the space. If you choose a direct option for the arrangement of kitchen furniture to comply with the rule is impossible.
With built-in fridge or pencil case, you should carefully consider the working area.
At the 3-meter straight kitchen with a fridge, everything will be on the same line, and the hostess will have to do more than a dozen extra steps per day to cook dinner. If the length of the kitchen is more than 3 meters, then the movement takes even more time.
- If the kitchen is small, and 3 meters in one line is the limit, there are problems with the placement of all the necessary utensils, products. After installing the stove and washing remains too small workplace for cooking.
- For security purposes, wall-mounted cabinets have to be done already than lower, floor standing ones. This also reduces the usable area that can be occupied with dishes and necessary food supplies.
- In a confined space, the installation of a sink and a stove will depend on the placement of utilities - water supply, sewage drainage, gas pipe location.
The installation of the stove and sink depends on the communication connections.
Important! The limited area dictates the need to leave only the most necessary - furniture, appliances, without which it is indispensable.
Straight kitchen layout
The general rules of space planning stipulate that the hostess’s desk should be placed between the stove and the sink, be at least 40-80 cm. When a direct 3-meter kitchen is installed in the room with a refrigerator, as in the bottom photo, the distance between the refrigerator and the stove cannot be made smaller 15 cm
An island table with an additional working zone can be a good help.
Important! If the kitchen space has limited dimensions, choose a 2-ring stove, it will help to save usable working area.
For a small kitchen, it is better to choose a straight line with a length of 3 meters with comfortable column cabinets. Such high canisters visually raise the ceilings, and you get additional shelves. Direct kitchen with a length of 3 meters is installed in a room in several ways:
- One-sided linear arrangement of furniture involves placing along the wall sink, stove, desktop. The dining table is placed against the opposite wall. This is a traditional furniture layout in a small kitchenette.
- Double-sided layout is convenient in a square kitchen, in this case, the direct elements of the kitchen unit are located along two opposite walls. The dining area can be located on the island or taken out in the dining room. Alternatively, on the one hand set the bar. It can be stationary or folding.
- The L-shaped layout, when a corner 3-meter headset involves the installation of a sink in the corner, is completed with a small work cabinet or open shelves. At the same time, the dining area with a small corner sofa can be located in the opposite corner. Variants of 3-meter corner kitchens can be viewed in the photo below.
- U-shaped layout involves the completion of a corner or straight kitchen with one or two elements along the edges. This may be the installation of a bar counter or the use of a window sill instead of a desktop, tabletops, under which shelves fit, a cupboard for dishes, a small refrigerator.
For linear kitchens, it is better to order top cabinets to the ceiling.
