Whether to combine the kitchen with the living room, what zones to allocate and how to organize storage? “The placement and layout of the kitchen should correspond to the wishes and lifestyle of a particular customer and, of course, the chosen style. The American version (open space) is in vogue. The open kitchen integrates with the dining and sofa area into a luxurious common space, while the kitchen furniture maintains the style of the living room.
Traditionalists love separate rooms for the kitchen. Usually symmetrically planned, with an island in the center and a wide variety of lockers and work surfaces. In a country house or a large apartment, even in the case of a large kitchen size, it will not be superfluous to have an additional small pantry where you can hide rarely used dishes or store food. “
A good option for a large room will be an island. It serves as a link between those who eat and those who cook. It’s great when there is a separate room for storing food, and dishes. When designing large country houses, in addition to the ceremonial kitchen (where breakfasts, coffee, and dishes are usually prepared), we plan an additional working room, where the main part of the work on cooking takes place. “
The bar counter and the island are important components of a modern kitchen.
