If you have conceived repairs in the kitchen, then special attention should be paid to the kitchen set.
When choosing, pay attention to its functionality. Turning to a professional designer, you should not worry about his work.
He will professionally choose the color of your kitchen, size and functionality.
Today, not everyone can afford a designer to repair their homes, so you have to learn everything by yourself. This can help the Internet, photos of kitchen sets there you can find a large number.
If you nevertheless decided on an independent choice of a headset for the kitchen, then you should pay attention to some points:
Assembly. Depends on the manufacturer. Dear Italian furniture originally shipped to us assembled.
The average kitchen unit for the price is brought here unassembled, and the assembly takes place at a subsidiary, and only then comes to the customer assembled.
A cheap headset will be brought to the customer in a disassembled form, and the assembly is made on site.
Manufacturers disclaim responsibility for improperly assembled furniture, so we strongly recommend that you turn to specially trained people.
Dimensions. It must be borne in mind that both the functionality and the general appearance of the kitchen are a variety of different modules, from which the built-in kitchen set is assembled, the one you need.
Modules of ordered furniture should ideally fit into the size of your kitchen and not leave gaps between walls and furniture.
If you have built-in appliances in the plans, then first pay special attention to it, so that later you would not have to choose electrical appliances according to the size of the cabinets, and not functionality.
All headsets, regardless of the component modules, have elements of similar functionality, as a rule, they are located along the lines:
Bottom line In most cases, it includes cabinets for storing bulk and heavy dishes. In such cabinets, it is best to use storage boxes.
Since the opening door may not be convenient in a small room, and the doors on the principle of a coupe, must have space in the adjacent module for movement.
Medium shedding. It includes surfaces directly used in cooking. Such as an apron, gas stove, worktop and everything else that can be attributed here.
Top line. There are used lockers for storing household items - essentials, such as seasoning. Most often they are made smaller and it’s better for them to open vertically.
Many use shelves without doors for more free space, but it is necessary to keep a constant order in such shelves.
Vertical lines. Most often they are provided with cabinets for connecting the top and bottom lines. The built-in appliances, be it a refrigerator or an oven, will get along very well in this compartment.
But it should be borne in mind that in the small kitchen headset it will not look, yet it is more suitable for large kitchens.
Kitchen set materials and their elements
Facades. First of all, it is necessary to pay attention to the facades of the kitchen unit, since they are the first thing that catches the eye in the kitchen, their cost is also not small.
Pay attention, the more original you choose the facade, the more expensive it will cost you. Materials of which make facades:
- Glass, in most cases, is used in the upper cabinets, as it gives lightness to all
- Particleboard / MDF
If the design of your kitchen set provides a lot of decor, then get ready to pay for it. But do not forget about hygiene.
Tabletop. Durability and functionality it depends primarily on the material from which it is made.
Laminated chipboard, the shelf life will be about 5 years, and you should pay special attention to the joints, so that they do not disperse and do not get water there. This will cause bacteria to multiply and the tabletop will rot.
The worktop is made of stone materials, it is more practical, but experts do not advise putting hot dishes on it.
Stainless steel can also be a material for the tabletop, but it will not fit into any interior.
Cupboard. It should be borne in mind that lockers with shelves without doors will cost much less.
When properly assembled, the ends of the headset are not visible, but if it suddenly happens that you could not hide it, you can hide them with special cabinets - canisters.
When planning a kitchen set, it is necessary to take into account the area of your kitchen and peculiarities of its planning. There are several main options:
- Linear. It is comfortable in elongated kitchens.
- L-shaped. With this layout, all functional areas are at hand. Be sure to consider the moments of opening the doors and drawers, so that they would at least interfere with each other.
- U-shaped. All kitchen space will be a working area.
- Island This kitchen can not be used in small kitchens.
If your kitchen is small in size, then use small kitchen sets of white tones.
