The kitchen is the space of the House where we must better balance the practical with the aesthetic value. A well equipped work area does not have why forget style and have a few square meters kitchen does not justify neglecting your design. Today I bring you 7 errors that it is very easy to fall but that you must avoid when it comes to furnish and decorate this space so important:
1) kilometres between cabinets and ceilings
Storage is one of the functions that characterize a kitchen, because in it they must fit from food and all supplies and machinery they need to sections of recycling and cleaning products. Especially if our kitchen is not too broad, will play with the vertical: climbing cabinets to the ceiling manages space and also prevents dirt accumulation on high surfaces. If accessing the upper doors is a problem, has easy solution: a silla-escalera. In any case, you can dedicate these spaces more away from the scope to store items that you use with less frequency or food reserves and spare materials, trying to do it with not-very-heavy elements to handle (paper, cleaners, etc).
(2) fall into boredom
Add a creative and fun element can create a main focal point in a very “technical” as the kitchen room and completely change the environment. An original wall clock, a painted color Cabinet or refrigerator design can make cooking our favorite stay, perfect for more intimate visits without going to the salon.
(3) abuse of stainless steel
The finishes in gloss or Matt steel contribute much sobriety to surfaces and appliances, but overloading the kitchen with its texture everywhere can eat space, give narrow feeling to something that it is not. I recommend using this in balance with other flat materials because the contrast of tones you can get a very interesting style.
(4) any piece of furniture will suffice
Furniture, cabinets and chests of drawers in the kitchen are the most of the space. Invest much in home appliances and Accessories, and however set aside the election of the furniture is a mistake. A bad decision can end that poor quality – or bad design – furniture environment fully charge.
(5) stifled space
Having a window is the best system to combat the two main conditions that all kitchen breathe: ventilation and lighting. If you can not count on any of the two naturally, it is important to condition the space with some accessories such as bells extractors, additional lights and ventilation ducts on the Hob. Do not forget that the colors and textures always help to enhance the sensations, so the choice of soil and tones on walls, furniture and decoration can perfectly complement a lack of light, or amplitude.
(6) the eclectic to the end
Very carefully with the mixture of styles. A space kitsch is always risky, but it can be great in rooms such as the living room or bedroom. The kitchen is another story and, despite offering many possibilities, it is not suitable to move with decor that forget the frenetic activity to which this room is subjected. There is that thinking pragmatic, respect above all the workspace and especially avoid…
(7) the horror vacui Cook
So saturate, or walls or surfaces. It is very important to know take advantage and adapting the space that we have. Not all houses can have a large kitchen, but not large stands for perfect, since a distributed happy medium or small kitchen may prove more than sufficient and even work better than one that is is too large for our needs. Whatever it is, two keys are essential: no place to view more than necessary (the rest, to the cupboards) and minimize obstacles. He is spoken even of the theory of triangle work (nevera-fogones – sink) and fatal error which is obstructing the passage in it.
And here the 7 most common mistakes by decorating a kitchen, hope that you have not committed none of them in yours.
