A kitchen is usually referred to as a heart. You may disagree with that statement but a house is where we gather and build memories. Our memories are linked with the smell of delicious cake and flavored coffee. A kitchen is a place where we can show our creativity at its best. Here we can learn, create, and discover new recipes and share them with our family members. In order to feel comfortable in our kitchens, we should think about the arrangement and interior design of the space.
Gas-stove, sink, and fridge – the triad is an indispensable part of a kitchen. Do not put them too close or far from each other. They should be placed at a distance of approximately 60-120 cm from each other. That has an impact on our energy, mood, and time spent in a kitchen. We have seen that kitchen islands are used to make space look bigger especially in studio apartments. They incorporate cooking surface, gas-stove, and sink and are characterized by their refined design.
The kitchen cabinet is an essential element in a kitchen. Top or lower, closed or open drawers are all particularly useful. Glass drawers are a better option, making the kitchen look spacious. It can also be painted – if you have children, they can help you color them. Lower kitchen cabinet should have at least 3 movable drawers with separated zones. The right organization design will make your cooking process easier.
Lighting is important everywhere, however, it has a special function in a kitchen. When cooking, we have to use edgy things and lighting is the key detail in safety. If you live in a studio apartment and receive a lot of guests, proper lighting will bring coziness and warmth to it. One of the effective ways to achieve that is built-in lighting or using a lamp installed or placed at/on the table.
Lighting as well as selecting the right colors affect our mood. Colors have the power to make space look bigger or smaller. Moreover, they have an impact on our emotions. The kitchen is associated with good smells and warmth, it would be natural to use light colors as well. Neutral and warm colors will create a refined atmosphere. Colors have meanings – blue is said to discourage you from eating, while red has the opposite effect. Yellow is inspirational, green is linked with relaxation. White is one of the most popular colors used in kitchen design. White color can be accompanied by wood accessories.
