Design kitchen area of ​​25-30 square meters. m

Kitchen area of ​​25-30 square meters. m allows you to carry out a lot of planning, decorating and technical capabilities, but at the same time causes a lot of questions. Moreover, often such a spacious room is used as a multifunctional rather than utilitarian space - as a kitchen-dining room, kitchen-living room or even a kitchen-dining-living room. In this material, we formulated 10 tips that will help you avoid mistakes and effectively dispose of available meters.

10 advice on the arrangement of a large kitchen 25-30 sq m

Tip 1. Arrange the "working" points near each other

A common mistake in the arrangement of spacious kitchens is the non-observance of the rule of the "working triangle". This is especially true of the refrigerator, which is often placed at a distance. To make the kitchen comfortable, and you did not have to move from place to place with food on hand during cooking, you need to place all three peaks of the working triangle near and so that between them there were no barriers like a dining table.

  • Between the sink and the stove can be a distance of 60 to 180 cm, and between the sink and the fridge - from 45 cm to 2 meters. The smaller the distance between the work points, the more convenient the kitchen will be.

Board 2. Ideal layout - U-shaped

From the point of view of the same "working triangle", it is the U-shaped layout that is an ideal solution for a kitchen of 25-30 square meters. m, because it allows you to have everything you need literally at your fingertips.

However, if you do not plan to equip the kitchen with an island (we'll tell you about it below), then the U-shaped set should be designed in a small size, so that between the cupboards the passage does not exceed 120 cm, otherwise the advantage of the U-shaped layout is lost.

For a combined kitchen-living room or kitchen-living room-dining room, you should choose more compact layouts, for example, L-shaped (suitable for rectangular kitchens), double row (for a narrow room) or linear (in combination with an island / peninsula).

Tip 3. Island or peninsula - super-convenience guarantee

One of the bonuses of the kitchen area of ​​25-30 square meters. meters is the ability to equip the kitchen with an island - a multifunctional table for kitchen work and storage. Thanks to him you can create an ideal "working triangle" no matter what form your headset is built in. Below is a selection of photos of large kitchens with different layouts and an island (designer Zhenya Zhdanova).

The island can be equipped with at least a stove and a bar counter and as a maximum - a stove, a bar counter, a sink, mini fridge and / or wine cabinet. And the island also splits space into zones - the kitchen, the dining room and the living room.

  • The main rule of choosing an island: the passages around it must be at least 1 meter wide, and its shape must repeat the shape of the room.
  • If you use the kitchen only as a working area or as a kitchen-dining room, then the island can be large. If you are building a kitchen-living room, then a compact island with a size of no more than 100 × 120 cm or a peninsula will do. Peninsula (see photo) - this is the same island, but with one end resting on the wall or in the headset.

Tip 4. Create even lighting

Even the most perfectly arranged kitchen can become uncomfortable and uncomfortable if you plan your lighting improperly. At 25-30 squares it should be uniform, not dull, but not too bright. To achieve this, additional light sources should be used in addition to the ceiling chandelier. It is best to use spotlights arranged along the perimeter of the ceiling at a distance of about 30-70 cm from each other. By the way, they can not illuminate the whole room, but only the working area. Also, to create a uniform light, you can use wall sconces and floor lamps.

  • Ideally, the chandelier should not be placed in the center of the kitchen, but over the dining table (at a height of 70-90 cm from the countertop), it is good if it is multi-baked. Thus, you not only light the dining area, but also visually divide the space.
  • The island is best illuminated by a couple of trousers of concise laconic design.
  • Its backlighting must be in the working area - above the countertop and above the hanging cabinets.
  • If the kitchen is combined with the living room, then the living room should be equipped not only with general lighting, but also independent. Floor lamps and table lamps will create coziness and make a spacious room more chamber.

Tip 5. Choose a powerful hood

Thanks to a powerful hood, smells do not prevent vacationers in the living / dining room and will not impregnate furniture upholstery, curtains, carpet and other textiles.

  • For a kitchen of 25-30 squares, a dome (!) Hood with a capacity of 1300-1600 m is needed³/ hour (the more, the better).

Council 6. In order not to complicate the cleaning of the large kitchen, give up impractical surfaces

Maintaining a large kitchen in order is much more difficult than standard. Especially when it comes to a combined kitchen-living room or kitchen with a grand dining room, because the mess in the work area spoils the general appearance of the room. Here are some useful tips to help you create a kitchen that is easy to clean and difficult to smudge.

  • Refuse the facade, countertop, apron and floor dark shades (black, graphite, dark brown, dark green and dark blue). Dust, crumbs and stains on dark surfaces (especially glossy ones) are very noticeable.
  • Give preference to an artificial, rather than a natural stone for covering the countertop and apron. Other suitable options are tile and wood (for countertops).
  • The most practical material for finishing the floor - tile or porcelain stoneware. In the kitchen-living room with this material, you can only trim the working area, and the rest of the room with any other material. Different floor finish not only facilitates cleaning, but also zoned space.

Совет 7. Откажитесь от навесных шкафов полностью or частично

Если нижние тумбы и остров вмещают в себя большинство кухонной утвари и бакалеи, откажитесь от навесных шкафчиков (на одной-двух стенах) or замените их парой-тройкой отрытых полок. Это решение позволит вам сохранить ощущение простора и визуально облегчить интерьер.
