How to draw a kitchen?
In order for the kitchen to be convenient and beautiful, it is desirable to design it before starting the renovation, that is, to draw a kitchen project. After all, only by drawing it - on paper or using a special computer program (sometimes they say about this method - draw the kitchen online), you can think through all the details - for example, the degree of functionality or the filling of the kitchen. So let's get down to our project.
How to draw a kitchen - tips
First of all, you need to make measurements of the kitchen: measure the length of the walls and baseboards, as well as the parameters of window and door openings, because for the placement of kitchen furniture it will be very important. It is advisable to think about how kitchen cabinets and tables, stove and refrigerator, extractor hood, and also, if necessary, a washing machine and dishwasher will be located. To do this, we set the scale and draw up the first draft scheme to which we transfer all the items. In this diagram, you will see a fairly accurate location of all items relative to the kitchen walls and openings. If the kitchen drawers are located on the legs, you will need to decide how to install them in order to better distribute their weight.It is better to form a headset from the corner, while the plan should indicate the location of all cabinets and household appliances. Here you need to decide on the choice of what kind of kitchen you want to see: direct or angular.
Household appliances and furniture
Placing on the scheme of household appliances, you need to consider that washing and dishwashers should be located next to the sink, because it will be more convenient to connect to the water supply and sewage. When installing the oven and hob, it is advisable to provide for their location away from the refrigerator. At the same time, the main working area can be placed between the sink and the hob. As for furniture, the drawers are almost always more practical than cabinets with doors. The best solution would be to install a “magic corner” or carousel in the corner cabinet rather than a sink, and in order to make it easier to use the dishwasher, you do not need to install it to the sink at an angle, it’s better if they are in one line. Only having formed the lower part of the kitchen, proceed to the top. Note that the height of wall cabinets varies depending on the manufacturer, and ranges from 40 cm to 1 m.As for the hood, the built-in is mounted under the cabinet, and the fireplace is already a separate unit, installed instead of the cabinet. The drying cabinet best stands above the sink.
