Intesa Casa workshop for decorating kitchen
Why the neutral color
If your kitchen is not separate from the dining room and living room, neutral colors are a good basis for blending in with other rooms.
How to avoid monotony
Worktop or fronts of the cabinets in the wooden decor visually correspond to the neutral background, not disturbing its harmony, and bring richness to the visual experience.
Large and bright kitchen
If your kitchen is large and nicely lit, you can think about the influence of colors on the mood and appetite. Warm colors (yellow, orange, red) stimulate the appetite, while colder ones (blue, green) reduce it.
Many people consider black color for the fronts, because it is the color of elegance, but also practical to maintain. However, if the room is not well lit, install the best possible electric lighting, and if the kitchen is not large, you can compromise and place black fronts on the base cabinets, and use a lighter color for the wall cabinets.
Kitchen is consisted of three areas, which we call the functional triangle. The storage area includes the space in which the refrigerator and storage for groceries are located, the sink and the dishwasher are located in the washing area, and the stove is located in the cooking area. The kitchen is best organized when the sum of the sides of this triangle does not exceed 6.5 m.
Types of kitchens
For a long and narrow room, the single-line kitchen is the most suitable, where the pieces occupy one wall. If the kitchen room is wide, one solution is the parallel kitchen, and another is the "L" kitchen. The "U" kitchen is suitable for very wide rooms.
When choosing floors, it is important to think about the hygiene and the resistance of the material. Ceramic or granite tiles are the right choice because they are easy to install and come in a variety of shapes and colors. Vinyl has been significantly improved, so it should be considered as an option, but it does not decompose in nature, unlike linoleum, which is an eco-friendly material.
We usually cover walls with ceramic tiles, but we also have waterproof wallpaper at our disposal, as well as various wall coverings, such as wood, plexiglass and glass. In case of transparent coverings, a photo wallpaper can be placed under it, and the glass can be sandblasted or decorated with foils. Keep in mind that these coverings are harder to maintain than the ceramic tiles.
For kitchen fronts, we have a few materials available: particle board (chipboard), MDF (painted or veneered) and wood. Chipboard is the most economical and has been quite improved in recent years, so it has got closer to MDF in terms of quality. If you are a wood lover, consider whether you want to commit to maintenance, so that the quality and appearance of wooden surfaces can remain at the original level for a long time.
Laminate countertop has a quality surface foil resistant to moisture and wear, and it is available in various colors and patterns that mimic various materials. Other materials are more expensive, but they last longer, have better quality and look better. Lacquered wood, marble, quartz and granite can significantly contribute to leaving a stronger impression in your kitchen.
