How to choose the appropriate shape of your kitchen to be restored?

In the catalogs and in the furniture stores the proposals are truly endless. This abundance is likely to confuse those who are not of the branch. You wonder: is an American kitchen with an island , a compact space or a corner kitchen better? 

The “shape” to give to your kitchen must consider the size of the available space and not the other way around.For example, in a narrow and long space it will be necessary to opt for a linear and compact kitchenand not for an island or too high wall units. They would end up shrinking the spaces. An architect can take you to the perfect balance between practicality and aesthetics. 

Location of appliances

When designing a new kitchen, it’s very important to think about appliances: how will you use them in your daily routine? This is the first key to good design. Are you a skilled cook? Do you use the kitchen to make coffee? They are important milestones. Then there are rules that apply to everyone. For example:

  • Sinks and fires should not be attached. 60 cm are the ideal choice to ensure that food preparation is comfortable, linear and up to standard.
  • The refrigerator should not be placed near the oven and windows. This is because it would affect the cold chain without maintaining the actual internal temperature.
  • No curtains fluttering near the stove.
  • Install the dishwasher near the sink to avoid dropping water and dirt when we move plates and glasses. The ideal would be to place it in the center between the sink and the burners, in the 60 cm of support surface.
