PRACTICAL TIPS TO GET THE KITCHEN YOU ARE LOOKING FOR

Functional

  1. Easily opening doors that don’t block others when open.
  2. Position the hob away from the lateral wall so as to avoid burns and stains, making it easier to clean the working area.

Safety

  1. We recommend you to position the oven out of reach of children.
  2. We recommend leaving a distance of 50 cm between a gas heater and the hob.

Comfort

  1. Try to position the dishwasher near the sink. This will make it easier to load and will minimise water splashes on the floor.
  2. It is useful to fit a drawer next to the hob to always keep utensils to hand.

Lighting

  1. To avoid shadows and reflections in the working area, ensure adequate lighting over the worktop fitted in high cupboards.
  2. It is useful to position another source of zenith lighting over the dining table.

Distribution

  1. LINEAR KITCHEN The ideal solution for narrow kitchens. Organise your kitchen to make the most of spaces and ensure ease of use at all times.
  2. KITCHEN WITH ISLAND An alternative that positions a working island in the preparation area, with the remaining working areas distributed around it either in a line or in an “L” shape.
  3. “L” SHAPED KITCHEN This represents the most traditional lay-out, which brings together the working area and frees up the rest of the kitchen.
  4. PARALLEL KITCHEN A lay-out that maximises the use of space, separating the washing and cooking area from the food preparation area.
  5. “U” SHAPED KITCHEN This allows for mobility in a small space, ensuring that everything is at arm’s reach.

Measurements

  1. The optimum distance between the kitchen and the sink is a minimum of 50 cm.
  2. The ideal space to leave between the upper cupboards or the bottom edge of the range hood and the worktop, is approximately 50/70 cm.
  3. We recommend you to leave a minimum distance of 40 cm at each end of the kitchen.
  4. The facing units in a parallel kitchen should be separated by a distance of between 100 and 120 cm.
  5. If you opt for a counter, the height of the bar should be between 90 and 110 cm from the floor in order to combine it with stools of 63 to 74 cm.
