Armed with drawings and diagrams of the headset assembly, you can create a unique kitchen interior with your own hands, not inferior to the examples in numerous photos. To work will require a sketch, accurate measurements, tools, as well as ready-made parts of furniture. Curbstones with hanging lockers are assembled independently according to the instructions attached to them. If you have the necessary skills to repair the corner kitchen will be relatively simple.
A self-made kitchen will emphasize individuality and comfort.
What should be in the corner kitchen
Before you engage in the development of drawings and diagrams, you must consider what furniture will be in the kitchen. You can make several layouts with different versions of the arrangement of furniture and technology, choosing the most successful. Three-dimensional models are created using computer programs or are drawn by hand with the necessary artistic skills. Anyway, you need to think about the design of a corner kitchen from a corner, this is the starting point. Often it is located washing built into the cabinet. If the space in the corner kitchen is small, instead of the sink a compact corner cabinet is installed.
The right approach to kitchen planning, allows you to achieve amazing results.
Of course, no kitchen can do without a hearth. In modern interiors, it is replaced by stoves and cooking surfaces. If necessary, they can be supplemented with a separate oven, if the design of the stove does not imply it. It is worth thinking about the tabletop, it should be wide enough, it is convenient for work. In small kitchens, as a continuation of the working surface, you can use a window sill or purchase a compact bar counter - this is the working surface and the dining table in one bottle.
In the small kitchen can be equipped with a table on the windowsill
Important! Built-in appliances will be more expensive, but it is smaller, which is convenient for small kitchens.
The refrigerator in the kitchen can be quite roomy, located in a free corner. If space is not enough, it is more appropriate to choose small models up to 120 liters. A separate freezer located on the refrigerator or built into the cabinet next to it will take less space.
An ordinary refrigerator can be built into the cupboard.
The scheme of the future kitchen set is created in a certain order. First of all, the arrangement of the working triangle is thought out. The sequence is as follows:
- Stove or hob.
Options for placing the working area in the kitchen
The worktop, as a rule, is placed in the corner kitchen between the sink and the stove. The distance must be at least half a meter for safety reasons - do not allow splashes of water on burning burners. The distance from the sink to the refrigerator should be 1-1.5 meters to quickly get everything you need. This arrangement in the drawings of the corner kitchen due to the convenience of work.
Important! When drawing up a drawing of a corner kitchen, be sure to mark the location of the window and door openings, as well as the direction of the opening flaps. If they interfere, you will need to change the location of kitchen cabinets or appliances.
Kitchen layout with the correct placement of the working triangle
For these reasons, it is highly recommended not to place the slab next to the window:
- The wind can blow out the fire;
- Open windows can make it difficult to approach the stove.
Near the window is better to place the sink
For the countertop, the window is a great place, so the work surface will receive additional lighting. We should also think about the storage of dishes, especially pans and pots. To do this, the drawing marked floor cabinets and wall cabinets. In order to keep the flesh and fat from spreading through the kitchen, you need a good hood, the location of which is also marked on the diagram.
Telescopic built-in hood suitable for any interior
In order for the drawing of a corner kitchen set to be as accurate as possible, it is necessary to make high-quality measurements. This is a crucial part of the work, even small mistakes can lead to the fact that as a result, the furniture simply does not fall into place. Examples of drawings with dimensions for the repair of the kitchen with your own hands can be viewed in the photo below.
Drawing, created in one of the computer programs with all the measurements
One of the most important parameters is the length and height of the walls, it is necessary to accurately calculate the number of cabinets, along with their dimensions. Here are the standard measurements that are taken as the basis for the design of the corner kitchen:
- The height of the pedestals and tabletops, as a rule, is 85 cm, which is approximately the level of a belt for a person of average height.
- The depth of the working surface up to 50 cm, it can be less - it all depends on the location of gas pipes and water supply, running along the walls.
- Width of pedestals and wall lockers can be different - from 30 to 80 cm. The narrowest options are used if the drawers and shelves are planned. For swing models choose wider sizes.
- The widest pedestal, as a rule, is chosen for the sink - about 80 cm. If the corner kitchen is small, it is worth noting the dimensions of 60 cm on the drawing.
- The width of the wall cabinets and shelves is selected according to the same criteria as for floor stands. More beautiful and more comfortable look at the models already.
- The standard depth of hanging furniture is 30 cm, and the height is 71.5 cm. If there is little space and the height of the ceilings allows, you can change this parameter to a larger side.
- The distance between the top and floor parts of the headset is 65 cm, this is an extremely variable parameter and is selected taking into account the growth of the owners of the house.
3-D layout of the future kitchen
The sizes given above can be used for the drawings and schemes of the kitchen collected by the hands. These are not strict requirements, all parameters can be changed to match the individual characteristics of the room, the needs of household members, etc. The only detail whose size is really important is the facade - making custom-made non-standard models is more expensive.
Important! In addition to furniture, you should not forget about transferring the exact dimensions of household appliances to the kitchen drawing.
Nuances when working with furniture sizes
The calculation of the size of the furniture is the most important step in creating the drawings of the corner kitchen, it should be given special attention. Each element of the headset is calculated separately. Moreover, the greatest difficulties in the calculations arise with a pedestal for an oven with a hob, here it is necessary to carefully note the size of the furniture, taking into account the dimensions of technology.
In addition to the general drawing of the corner kitchen with the placement of all furniture with appliances you will need to make several separate walls with detailed details of each element of the kitchen set. These are all drawers, shelves, doors, walls, covers, back panel. Also on the scheme it is worth noting the location of the handles, hinges, etc. Variants of the design of the corner kitchen, made with your own hands according to the chosen sizes and drawings can be seen in the photo below.
List of items
Drawings and charts must be supplemented with an accurate list of all parts of the headset, indicating their size and the exact number. Accessories are also included in this list. The main points of the list are:
- Rear panel;
- Side parts;
It also indicates the material from which you plan to make parts. For the case it is better to choose the most durable options, for example, wood, but a thick sheet of plywood is suitable for the back walls.
Where to buy materials
As soon as the drawings of the corner kitchen are ready, the next stage begins - the manufacture of parts. For this you can contact almost any furniture company, this service is quite common. In addition to the size, you will need to specify the material, as well as the color design of the corner headset. The facade is also thought out in advance. Accessories and fasteners are purchased in hardware stores.
DIY-made parts will be much cheaper than custom ones, but it’s better not to experiment with facades. This element is easier to make to order, which will significantly facilitate the assembly process of the corner kitchen.
As soon as everything you need is purchased, it's time to proceed to the final stage of the kitchen renovation - assembling the headset. To do this, you need the following tools:
- Set of screwdrivers.
The number of tools may vary depending on the chosen fasteners and materials. Further it will be necessary only to follow the assembly instructions for the headset attached to the customized parts.
Creating blueprints with your own hands requires attentiveness, perseverance and accuracy of all calculations. Well-written scheme is already half the job - the finished parts will only be assembled already in place. If done correctly, the assembly of an angular kitchen set will pass quickly and without unforeseen situations.
