How to make the kitchen comfortable
The kitchen is a space with strong emotional connections, as many of us associate the room with the preparation of delicious dishes and high-quality time.
A narrow kitchen with a corner dining area brings the environment together.
Therefore, any elements - from cabinets and stoves to forks and spoons play a huge role for our mood, can add to the family home a completely new dynamic, stimulating more pleasant cooking and eating.
In the narrow dining area you can arrange the dining area in a remote part of the room.
The planning decision is probably the most important part of the design. It is the location - and not its color or style - that determines how easy it will be to cook, eat and socialize on it.
At the most basic level, the layout concerns the placement of appliances, sinks, cabinets, tabletops, windows, doors, and furniture — such as a table and chairs.
Perfect location of kitchen appliances
If you are building a new home or improving it, you have the opportunity to choose the layout that is best for you and your family. If you model, the structure of the existing house will limit the options.
- cleaning area with dishwasher and sink;
- cooking zone with stove and oven;
- with fridge and freezer.
We will talk about these options today.

Single wall kitchen
For a small space in which the refrigerator, sink, oven, hob, countertop and cabinets are arranged linearly and keep all appliances, cooking tools and products within easy reach.
The entire structure can even be hidden behind compartment doors to minimize visual clutter in a small open space, such as a studio apartment.

Single wall kitchen layout is usually located in the studio or attic rooms.

Although a working triangle can be the most efficient way to organize a kitchen, your space may not allow it.return to menu ↑
Work triangle in the kitchen
Any classically designed kitchen consists of three work areas, which are reduced to the combination of the main work items:
- cleaning area with dishwasher and sink;
- cooking zone with stove and oven;
- with fridge and freezer.
The interior of the three work areas create the necessary balance.
These three areas, when they are located correctly, create the necessary working balance and concentrate around themselves the main movement in the kitchen.
Below I have collected recommendations that will help you use the work area as efficiently as possible.

Determine the size
To make the most of your triangle, separate your work areas with the least amount of steps, but with enough work space.
This means that the distance between the points must be at least 1 meter and not more than 2 meters. The common sides of the working area should therefore be at least 3 meters.

With the location of the "Galera" 2 zones are located nearby - food is taken from the refrigerator, prepared in the sink, and then moved to the zone for heat treatment.
The passage should be measured at least 1.2 m, not more than 1.8 m. The dining area is usually located at one end, which helps to maintain activity while eating.

The most efficient design
The most effective design is the L-shaped kitchen. Here, two adjacent walls form a natural triangle.
This layout provides flexibility in the arrangement of the kitchen space. If space permits, you can add an island.
This will minimize the working triangle, identify patterns of movement, create a dining place.
Simple stylish style
If you are limited by space, use a small trolley or install a peninsula for an extra work area.
Exquisite interior in wooden colors
If space permits, consider placing a sink, dishwasher, or stove on the side of the island closest to the work center. The other side can be used to create the bar.

How to create in modern style
What is a modern kitchen? If you asked the same question 10 or 20 years ago, the answer would be easy.
They used to be always industrial, cold and somewhat sterile. And you still will not be too far away from this answer today.
Light walls and interior combine well together.
But the term has also become broader. Modern is an addition rather than a holistic style. You can have a rustic style where rich wood is used, for example, in combination with industrial equipment and steel or aluminum parts.
Or kitchens where austere design is combined with an extremely soft and welcoming dining area.
In woody style with good lighting
But this lack of concrete definition should be viewed in a positive way. Never before have there been more varied cuisines, which makes them exceptionally interesting and exciting for design.
There are, however, some elements that unite the vast majority of kitchens. If you are designing a kitchen, you are likely to adhere to the rules of design.
