Kitchen. Your kitchen, a space to be fitted out

traffic in the kitchen

This is the basis of a successful kitchen plan. The study of the activity triangle facilitates circulation in the kitchen area by focusing attention on three poles: preparation / cooking (worktop and plates), washing (sink) and storage (fridge / placards).

Whether the kitchen is deployed in L, U or with work surfaces in parallel, the three poles of activity must form a triangle. It is by respecting this condition that you will be able to prepare meals easily by avoiding unnecessary trips and places between the various essential points of the kitchen.

The choice of materials

Whether for the worktop or for the complete structure of the kitchen furniture, the choice of materials arises from the creation of the kitchen. Beyond the simple aesthetic aspect, the material used must also be easy to maintain. The kitchen is the room in the house where food stains, grease deposits and various spills are the most common. It is therefore necessary to think about adopting a resistant and easy to clean material!

It is for all these reasons that today, wood is acclaimed as much in modern kitchens as in country and rustic kitchens. Solid oak is a material particularly appreciated for its hardness, nobility and resistance.

Include a dining area

The kitchen is a real living room in the house. This is why you can think during its creation to create a dining area in its own right. In addition to a real dining room where you can receive your guests during events, the dining area in the kitchen can allow you to eat quickly and chat with your family.

Plenty of storage!

It seems obvious that a functional and practical kitchen must meet the storage needs necessary for daily use. It is therefore necessary to define a kitchen equipped with functional and simple storage.

To be perfectly organized, a kitchen must juggle between deep drawers and cupboards at practical height.

For small kitchens, high cabinets can save space. However, for those who benefit from sufficient surface area for their kitchen, it is better to think about creating easily accessible storage.
