Ease of access
It is not you that you have to adapt to the kitchen , but it is the kitchen that must adapt to you!
If you are not a basketball player, it is better to choose low elements, if you are tall, give preference to wall cabinets or base cabinets (especially for sink and work space). If you can not bend as you once did to reach the lower shelves, remember to choose the appropriate accessories to make life easier (furniture swiveling in the corners, removable low compartments to reach what is stored there without having to put on all fours etc.).
Work space always uncluttered
How to set up the kitchen and arrange the furniture
First you should:
- check where the water, gas, electricity and drain pipes are located , to establish the layout of the appliances (in particular for the extractor hood , excluding the models with recirculation);
- measure the space used to house the furniture;
- establish the shape of your kitchen .
An important detail: usually the cupboards are intended for foodstuffs , while the elements on the ground receive dishes and accessories for the preparation of meals (pots, pans, small appliances, etc.).
Long and narrow kitchen
Furniture: to each his style (and his budget!)
On the market you can find a wide range of materials to give the style you want to your kitchen.
Unfortunately, it is a material little used by the manufacturers, we must take a little ‘to get it!
Most people get rid of this kind of furniture because they have a too retro style, and therefore you can find them at very affordable prices ! In addition, the recycled ant furniture is also healthier , as after a few years the recomposed wood panels no longer emit polluting substances. Of the ant we can appreciate the robustness and the retro style(even if it is difficult to find furniture in good condition); among the disadvantages we remember the tendency to scratch and break with the passage of time.
