– Layout and circulation of a small planned kitchen

Unfortunately, we find in most apartments kitchens designed with the minimum space necessary for the simultaneous use of one or two people, which leaves a lot to be desired in terms of circulation, so it is important during a remodeling think of small details that will translate into a few extra inches inside your kitchen.

note in project original of the kitchen that, we have a deposit next to it with access to the service area, located behind the kitchen and also note that we have another door that gives access to the dining room forming a passageway, an important factor to be taken into account in the project.

As the client chose to demolish the warehouse wall and expand the kitchen, we had plenty of space to work on the project of cabinets and appliances, what was once a 3.88 x 2.21 m kitchen became 5.19 x 2.21 m with a great circulation space, see how the layout of the new project:

An important tip here is what was projected on the wall of the fridge and two ovens a panel of decorative closing in the room, which allowed us, in addition to the demolition of the dividing wall, the demolition of part of the masonry where the fridge.

Built-in cupboard Kitchen:

This demolition of part of the masonry where the fridge and the plumb of ovens made the ovens installed in line with the cabinets, avoiding a volume into the kitchen corridor.

It is very high to use porcelain tiles with textures to highlight the bench.

In some kitchens, depending on the area of cabinets, it is not even possible to use tiles itself, it was the case of this kitchen that we are using as an example, we only used Calacata porcelain from Portobello imitating carrara marble from outside to outside the countertop and white acrylic paint in the small areas that are left, such as the wall of the door that leads to the balcony, see in the image.

A beautiful porcelain tile on the floor added even more elegance to the environment.

The doors were repositioned to meet the primary need to design a large workbench.

Cabinet layout of a small planned kitchen:

A planned kitchen starts with the layout of the cabinets, defining the location of the hydraulics, that is, the location of the Cuba who will determine the starting point of the layout from the closet and only then do we move on to the other modules.

Planned Kitchen Cabinet:

– Doors x Drawers

Cabinets full of doors are in disuse nowadays, that's why we chose to design work drawers because they are more functional than traditional opening doors.

With the drawers it is more practical to access crockery and kitchen utensils as in this case the utensils come to you and not you to them.

In the case of our model kitchen, a large Cuba in Corian White, which resulted in a shallow drawer in the direction of the siphon, but with a good length for use and storage of cleaning products that are easily accessible when washing dishes, for example.

Designed Cabinet:

In the sequence, a hydraulic point was designed for the dishwasher whose model was previously determined for the perfect fit in the countertop and cabinets.

Note in the drawing above that we have the smaller cutlery drawers and the drawers that work as faggots just below the cooktop!

Bench drawers (3D)

In the upper part, we have cabinets with opening doors and in the central part we have created a niche highlighted in yellow to give a little color and liveliness to the kitchen. (check it out in 3D image above).

Planned Kitchen with Countertop:

For the bench to close perfectly to the end of the wall, we coat the shaft with the same material as the cabinet to give continuity to the countertop and make it even more fluid.

– Countertop of a small planned kitchen

Before choosing the material to be used in your kitchen, you need to know them better to make the right choice.

The most common to be found on the market are MARBLES AND GRANITES.

– Marble

the marble is more porous and has a softest stone than granite, therefore less resistant to impacts and stains.

– granite

IT'S less porous is very more resistent  that marble is therefore more suitable for kitchen sinks and for owning less veins it is usually much less graphically worked on by nature.

Given these characteristics, it is good to remember that marble can wear out over time, so in many cases where use is intense it is better think about the granite for kitchens that will have much greater resistance.

When choosing marble/granite, always try to balance the elements of its natural color with the others. Colors of the environment so as not to make a mistake!

But another option that is on the rise in kitchens is the Corian, a synthetic material produced by the company Dupont that enables the creation of shapes organic light and practically perfect, without any seams, even with the possibility of using Colors strong, offering a wonderful aesthetic.

An innovation for use on solid surfaces that when used in sinks inspire unprecedented creative design flights providing elegance combined with functionality.

If you've chosen Corian, know that the newest fashion in the kitchen is sink accessories, and Corian offers this possibility in style.

The sink all carved in Corian with drainer plates, cutlery and cups all accompanied by a beautiful top on the countertop are a must!

I particularly prefer one Cuba carved from the same corian material as a Cuba in stainless steel for that case, don't you think?
