Kitchen 7 sq. m. meters for 9 steps

Do not know how to fit everything you need in the kitchen area of ​​7 square meters. m? We have prepared for you a 9-step guide with tips and 60 photo-ideas that will help you make your kitchenette beautiful and functional.

Step-by-step guide for the arrangement of a 7-meter kitchen

Step 1. Do the redevelopment

Re-planning is not always necessary for all and not always, especially since it requires a lot of work, financial investments and time. But only with its help it is possible to radically transform and increase a mini-kitchen of 7 sq. M. There are two options for adjustment:

  • Combination with the adjacent premises (a loggia, a corridor, a living room, a pantry);
  • Moving partitions and increasing the kitchen due to the adjacent premises.

Most often, the kitchen is combined with the neighboring living rooms. After all, such an alteration is simple, and almost always resolved, and the premises themselves acquire a lot of advantages. So, in the kitchen-living room, households can communicate and be close to each other, without interrupting their business, mothers can look after children while cooking, and it's much easier to receive guests in a joint room. Another big plus - the opportunity to take the dining room into the living room and "do not save" on the size of the table. However, before you break down the walls, think about whether you are willing to put up with the spread of smells and noise from the kitchen to the living room (and vice versa), the lack of privacy and the need to always maintain both rooms in order.

  • To culinary smells not soaked up the upholstery of the sofa and curtains in the living room, install a powerful hood and always cook with it.
  • To avoid the feeling of disorganization in the interior of the kitchen-living room, zonate space, say, with the help of furniture or different finishes of the floors.

The redevelopment with the transfer of walls is good in that it allows you to increase the kitchen, and at the same time leave it isolated. This means that everyone who wishes can make a little noise in it, while everyone is asleep, the smells of food will not spoil the textiles in the living room, and the working disorder will not affect the view of the recreation area in any way. In addition, if your kitchen has a gas column or stove, the transfer of partitions is the only available option for redevelopment. At the same time, it should be borne in mind that the fee for increasing the kitchen is to reduce the living room.

Step 2. We make repairs and use the hidden reserves of the premises

Whether you are ready to do the redevelopment or not, try to find the hidden reserves of your small kitchen that you can use during the repair and, thereby, optimize the space.

  • A window sill will help to save precious centimeters and will bring a lot of benefits if you modify it a little. For example, you can make it part of the headset, leveling with the level of the floor stand (for this you need to slightly raise the window) and at the same time covering the radiator with facades. So the window sill will perform the functions of the cutting table, and the space below it will become a repository. Another idea - window sill, converted into a bar rack for snacks and breakfasts. Whichever version of the window sill you choose, do not forget to make in its table top vent holes for the passage of warm air from the battery to the window. Otherwise, the window will start to fog up, and this is dangerous with the appearance of mold.

  • In the process of repairing the kitchen it is highly desirable to get rid of the door, replace it with a sliding door or simply rearrange the hinges so that the canvas opens outward, and not inward. Keep in mind that a kitchen with gas must necessarily have a door, no matter - swinging or sliding.

  • If there is a missing corner at the entrance to the kitchen, it is very desirable to move the doorway at least 30-40 cm to one side, and remove the door or replace it with a sliding cloth. Then you literally from nowhere get a place where you can put, for example, a bookcase on wheels or a cooler with water. By the way, if necessary, the doorway can be narrowed to 80 cm (for the door 70 cm) - this width will be enough to carry the overall furniture and appliances (though, a dining table of 70 cm width will not be moved to another room without disassembly).
  • Raising the partition between the kitchen and the living room, think about the device in it niches. So you provide the room with cells for storing the service, glass, groceries, cookbooks, decor and other small things. The partition can be made both through and one-sided.

Step 3. We plan the scenario of lighting and arrangement of outlets

Lighting is not only a practical function, but also plays a big role in the perception of the room. To the kitchen area of ​​7 square meters. meters seemed more spacious, it should be lighted evenly, that is, instead of a powerful lamp used a few small.

For a mini-kitchen, this scenario is ideal: spotlights along the perimeter of the ceiling (or two parallel sides) + a chandelier in the center or above the table + furniture lighting.

It is very important to think about the distribution of light sources (especially wall-mounted ones) and the arrangement of outlets before repair, so that the future interior has as few visible wires as possible.

Step 4. Select the finish to visually increase the space

If you do not want to think long over the design of your kitchen, simply paint the walls with white paint, and lay a neutral tile on the floor. As a result, you will get a 100% successful result - the kitchen will be practical, light and visually more spacious.

However, designers have more interesting tricks to design small spaces, with which you can create the illusion of space.

  • If the kitchen is narrow, paint one of the walls with horizontal stripes to visually "move apart" the walls.
  • Pull the kitchen to the height will help the wallpaper in a diamond or in a vertical strip. With striped wallpaper, you have to be careful, because they also have the side effect of narrowing the space.

  • If you paste on one of the walls Wall-papers with the image of a road going into the distance, a forest path, a city street or any other picture with perspective, then the kitchen will seem less tight. True, such a brave reception requires a neutral background, otherwise the interior will be "overloaded".

  • The mirror wall or mirror apron can work to increase the space. At what, the bigger the mirror, the stronger the effect. And if you install a mirror in front of the window, then the light in it will become doubly larger. However, an apron with such a lining will suit only those who rarely cook at home, because he is not too practical and easy to care for. But the mirror wall, installed far away from the stove and sink - is a completely universal solution.

  • A win-win method for laying a floor (any) for a small kitchen is to lay diagonally or across the room (for a narrow kitchen). The desired pattern of laying the wooden floor - in the descent or "herringbone".

And now about "finishing" contraindications. Wallpapers with large and bright print, if possible, then only on one wall (see the photo below). But the wide floorboard in the 7-meter kitchen is completely banned.

Step 5. We create a color gamut

As we said earlier, there is no more sure way to increase the small kitchen, how to paint the walls with white paint. And white can be not only walls, but also furniture, floor and even curtains. We hasten to reassure - care for white surfaces requires the most common (except for tissues). But thanks to this monochrome you will create an effect of lack of boundaries, facilitate bulky furniture, "disguise" pipes and a gas column. In addition, a pure white interior is good in case the room faces north and there is not enough daylight. Well, to avoid the similarity of the kitchen with the hospital room, combine different shades of white, as well as interesting textures and materials.

See material on the topic: Everything about interior design of white kitchen.

If you want to introduce color into the interior, we recommend combining no more than 2-3 colors with each other, while using bright and dark colors in small doses, and taking the same white as the basis.

By the way, dark shades are especially good on vertical surfaces, for example, in an apron, in the design of one accent wall or on the facades of a headset. The trick is that the black, surrounded by lighter shades, seems to heal, giving space volume and depth.

And one more color advice: if you do not like white, the background of a small kitchen can be light gray, cream, light beige and other diluted shades.

Step 6. We plan the configuration of the kitchen set

This stage of kitchen design is 7 sq. M. m is almost the most responsible. After all, on how you plan a kitchen set, the functionality of the room, its convenience, the size of the dining area and the number of storage locations depends. Here are a few ideas and tips to help you choose the optimal kitchen cabinet configuration:

  • Corner (L-shaped) kitchen layout in most cases is the most optimal. Firstly, it captures just two walls and an angle. Secondly, it makes it convenient to arrange a plate, a sink and a refrigerator on the principle of a "working triangle". And thirdly, it retains enough space for a dining table.
  • Small corner kitchen

If you are more inclined to the corner kitchen, then take note of the following two ideas for its optimization:

  • Trapezium trapezium, although it takes more space, but very convenient for washing dishes, looks neater, and the cabinet under the sink makes it more spacious.
  • One of the sidewalls can be made narrower and sloping, then the passage to the kitchen will become more free.
  • Kitchen with beveled sidewall
  • Kitchen with beveled sidewall
  • Kitchen with beveled sidewall
  • By the way, with a narrowed sidewall, the trimmed corner pedestal-trapezium will be well combined. Below is a rough outline of this configuration in combination with a vent box.

  • If the capacity of the dining area for you in priority, then you can choose a more compact layout of the headset - linear. True, you have to sacrifice the size of the cutting area (however, you can use a dining table for this) and the number of storage locations. In addition, the linear layout is considered the most uncomfortable, because during cooking, the culinary master is forced to repeatedly move back and forth. In the next photo slider you can view the interior of the kitchen area of ​​7 square meters. m with a linear layout.

  • In those cases when the dining room is taken out to the attached drawing room, it is possible to consider more convenient, but less compact layouts - U-shaped and two-row. The U-shaped set is more suitable for a square room, and a two-row layout for an elongated one. Anyway, the passage between the kitchen furniture should be at least 1 meter.

  • How to provide the kitchen with as many storage places as possible without harming its footage? The answer is simple - use its height, raising the headset to the ceiling. In the uppermost lockers you can store rarely used things - for example, a stock of cans for pickles, a festive set of dishes or groceries. At the same time in the additional tier you can hide the air duct.

Step 7. Choose household appliances and plumbing

In the arrangement of the kitchen area of ​​7 square meters. m account goes to centimeters, so as far as possible, the technique should be selected in a reduced amount. Moreover, the functional mini-technology does not always lose to its standard brethren.

  • Thus, a dishwasher 45 cm wide (see photo) fully meets the needs of a family of three. And for 1-2 people, a 35-40 centimeter model will do.

Narrow PMM

Ideal cooking surface for a standard family - with three burners. For a couple or one tenant, 2 burners will suffice. The refrigerator should be selected narrow, but high. For lodgers alone, even a refrigerator with a chamber capacity of 120 liters is suitable. In this case, you can place a microwave or TV on top.

  • And to save space in the kitchen you can use multifunctional appliances like an oven-microwave oven or a multi-brewer-bread maker.

Important nuance - the technique in a small kitchen should be built-in. This makes the eye happy and saves space.

Step 8. Select chairs and table

The choice of a dining table largely depends not only on the size of the kitchen, but also on the way of life of the tenants and their number. So, for 1-2 people who have little and rarely eat at home, there will be enough two-seated spreading table, which can be easily transformed into a 4-seater table if necessary. For the most mobile people, a bar counter, a bar-sill, a coffee or a folding wall table will do.

Folding table for small kitchen

A full dining area for 4 people in a 7-meter kitchen is much more difficult to equip. Here are some tips:

  • The table should be chosen as a square or rectangular shape, as they rationally expend space. Well, if the corners of the table top are rounded - in a cramped room with them safer.
  • Best if the table will be folding or sliding. By the way, before buying it is not superfluous to make sure that in the assembled form, it "prolazit" in the doorway. So you can take a table in the living room for parties and home celebrations.
  • Unfortunately, massive tables are a privilege of only large kitchens. We are also suitable for light and elegant models on thin legs, with glass top.
  • Light should be and chairs. Especially well suited folding models (a la garden), as well as transparent chairs made of polycarbonate, by the way, very practical and inexpensive.

Folding chairs in the kitchen

  • A little space can be saved by a bench or a banquet set close to the wall. Although they are stationary and slightly less convenient than chairs, they have built-in storage boxes, they do not have backrests, and they do not require space for pushes. The distance between the table and the bench is always the same - it's 10-15 cm. Thus, to provide, say, 5 seats for a rectangular table, you need to put a bench near the wall, on the other hand put two chairs, and to the end of the table - a chair or stool .

  • It is desirable that the chairs did not have armrests and could easily slide into the table.

Step 9. We decorate and decorate

Choosing curtains, decor and accessories for a small kitchen area of ​​7 square meters. m follow the slogan "less is more." However, and minimalism is not to be fond of. The clock on the wall, the kitchen textiles selected for the interior, the plants in the pots and a couple of posters on the wall - that's the best set of jewelry.

  • The windows in the kitchenette are better draw with short curtains, possibly with an easy assembly. Roman or roller blinds, curtains-cafes, jalousie and curtains just a little below the windowsill and space is not overloaded, and cleaning will facilitate.
