Methods for highlighting the kitchen

The kitchen is characterized by an obligatory set of items, without which it cannot perform the functions prescribed to it, such as: hob, a kind of dishes, washing, work table, cutting boards.

With the most minimal requirements, you need a stove or small-sized cooker - electric or gas, you need a sink with hot and cold water, you need at least two or three pots and a pair of pans, kitchen knives, spatulas, cookers, cutting boards.

Let everything be in an extremely small amount, but you cannot do without it in the kitchen. It is also advisable to attach an extractor hood - after all, the kitchen is located in a common living space. And the owner of the studio probably has his own requirements for the style of the interior.

In recent years, a new architectural and design solution has appeared - the creation of invisible kitchens. The essence of the idea is that at rest the kitchen is really invisible, it is hidden behind a sliding or folding partition. That is, a place has been allocated for the kitchen in the common room, which can be completely fenced off from the common space with a partition.

The partition itself when closed, it is perceived as a standard room wall - in color, in the texture of the surface. Achievements of small-scale mechanization make it possible to make this partition either sliding, or folding. One press of a button - and the electromechanics drags the partition or folds it like an accordion. The same goes in the opposite direction. The kitchen is there, and when it is not needed it is not there, it is invisible. Moreover, if the place for it is chosen successfully, then it will be a fully functional kitchen.

If the apartment has a niche in one of the rooms, then a hidden fully functional kitchen can be placed in it. When the kitchen is not needed, it can be covered with a thick curtain or folding partition.

A very promising solution is a monoblock kitchen. This piece is manufactured and completed with all the necessary equipment and technology directly at the furniture factory. There are very tiny monoblocks that occupy an area of ​​about 1 m2.

They are thought out according to the nomenclature of their equipment and their technical characteristics. There is a sink with mixer, a two-burner hob, a miniature refrigerator and a small work surface.
