The hearth of any dwelling, even the smallest apartments, is the kitchen. For the hostess, this room is a study, for the household - a place of rest and replenishment of "energy reserves". The interior of the kitchen space of a small apartment, due to its modest size, is difficult to organize in compliance with the rules of ergonomics. But the placement of the necessary furniture set, appliances and household utensils is feasible in any small space. Of course, it is better to turn to professionals.
It is convenient to order a project in professional studios. In Kyiv, POLYAKOV Architectural Bureau will offer you a catalog of exclusive sketches and photos of kitchen layouts. They are designed even for very tiny rooms in size: 5 sq. m; 6 sq m; 7 sq m; 8 sq. m.
Initially, you should decide: is your kitchen a dining area, or is it a place for a quick breakfast and a light dinner? A full dining area can be taken out into the living room. And then the design of the kitchen space will not be cramped. The kitchen space can be expanded by combining with a loggia, a corridor, with an adjacent small room. The possibility of visual expansion - the rejection of the doorway. The same color palette for the decoration of adjacent rooms will unite the design of the two rooms into a single ensemble "kitchen with a complex perimeter".
A win-win option is the light finish of the walls and facades of the cabinets. This will add air and volume.
Glossy light surfaces attract reflected light, visually expanding the space. Design with a successful solution for the kitchen: glossy white surface of the stretch ceiling.
Ideas for a color transition from a white ceiling to walls are a couple of tones richer and then to a dark floor “increase” the height of a small kitchen around the perimeter.
Two-tone cabinet furniture with a light tone of the hinged tier and dark facades of pedestal tables also visually raise the ceiling line.
The diagonal design of the flooring pattern will "expand" the perimeter of the kitchen.
The current trend to use transparent plastic and glass as elements of tables and cabinets unloads the space. This is well demonstrated in the photo.
In a small kitchenette, it is better not to use colorful decor and textiles. A large drawing is also inappropriate.
The interior of small rooms needs everyday rationality and accuracy. Get rid of everything superfluous. Minimum decorative embellishments. Conciseness in everything - and your kitchen space will become practical, comfortable and loved.
