Given the small space available to design a kitchen with all the elements necessary to make it functional and decorative, it is important to know some essential aspects that will make this room stand out from other designs that we have seen.
Small kitchen design
1.Locate the stove, laundry, and refrigerator
These three are the main elements of a kitchen, they are always close since without them we could not prepare food, the pastry-makers are the part that complements the spaces.
We define 4 types of cuisine:
- Designed along a wall (ideal in very small spaces), the elements are placed linearly.
- Kitchen in the form of the letter “U”, the laundry, the stove and the refrigerator are placed on three walls.
- Kitchen in the form of “L”, the laundry, the stove and the refrigerator is placed on two walls.
- Kitchen with an island to the center, the “island” is a small table that can be used as a daily or fast dining room.
The lighting is natural or artificial in a kitchen and it plays a very important role. If you do not have a window with sufficient dimensions for the entry of natural light, then apply artificial spotlights where possible also within the cabinets (or below) to achieve a brilliant effect to the whole kitchen (see the photos below to see what you can get).
