12 tips for equipping the kitchen in a country house

Tip 1. Choose the style of the interior of the kitchen in accordance with the style of the facade of the house and the features of the area

Typically, the style of the interior of the kitchen of the country house (and other rooms) is formed based on the tastes of its inhabitants, and also taking into account the style of the facade of the house itself. Sometimes the choice is influenced by the peculiarities of the place where the house stands. Let's say its history or its proximity to the river / sea. It's so cool when the interior, exterior and surroundings of the house are a natural continuation of each other. Here are a few tips to help you decide:

  • In classic mansions and cottages lined with brick or stone, classic interiors in the style are appropriate: empire, eclecticism, chinoiser, art deco, French or English style, as well as more democratic American style.

  • If your house is located near a ski resort or you are in the countryside mainly in the winter, then take a closer look at the style of the chalet.

Tip 2. To make the kitchen comfortable, when planning, follow the rule of the "working triangle"

According to this rule, three strategically important areas - washing, stove and refrigerator - should be located side by side, forming a triangle.

  • The distance from the cooker to the sink should be at least 60 cm and not more than 180 cm. In this interval, it is good to place the preparation zone of products. The distance from the sink to the fridge can be from 45 cm to 2 m. In this gap is placed "Unloading and loading zone as well as auxiliary kitchen appliances, for example, coffee machine, electric kettle, toaster, etc.

Tip 3. The most convenient layout of the kitchen - U-shaped, most versatile - L-shaped

From the point of view of the "working triangle the most successful schedules are:

  • U-shaped- when the furniture and working points are arranged in a U-shape, it is possible to cook standing almost in one place, making only corners. True, for such a layout, the width of the room should not be more than, m, or better - no more, m, otherwise the distance between the side parts of the headset will become too large.

  • Island- no matter how you put together the furniture in the work area, the island will make the kitchen as comfortable as possible, especially if equipped with a stove and / or a sink. However, even for the smallest islet, space is required, because there must be at least 1 meter passages around it. More on the arrangement of the island, we told in the Council of 4 (see. below).

The most universal layouts are:

  • L-shaped- slightly less convenient, but the most universal scheme of furniture arrangement, which is especially important for small kitchens of rectangular shape. When choosing such a layout, it is desirable to place the refrigerator in one line with a sink, not a stove.

  • Linear- a versatile, but the most inconvenient variant of kitchen layout. Due to the fact that the working areas are arranged in one row, during cooking, the cook has to repeatedly go back and forth the extra meters, and therefore waste time and effort. However, for small kitchens this option is often the only possible solution.

For a narrow and elongated kitchen, a two-row (parallel) layout is suitable:

.
  • Double row- suitable for kitchens with a width not exceeding, m, and ideally - no more than, m. At the same time, the stove and sink are placed side by side in one line, and the refrigerator together with the oven and microwave on the opposite side. Sometimes between two rows of furniture have a dining table as shown in the photo below.

Tip 4.If your kitchen has an area of ​​more than 18 square meters. Install the island desktop

The island is a super-functional table that can play the role of a place for preparing food, storage space for utensils and groceries, a bar for breakfast and snacks. Also in it you can build a stove, a sink, a wine cabinet, a dishwasher or a small refrigerator.

Especially such a helper is relevant for:

  • Kitchens with an uncomfortable linear layout;
  • The kitchen is combined with a living / dining room (see. photo) / entrance hall.

Keep in mind that for kitchens up to 20 square meters. meters suitable for a small island size of 120 × 100 cm. Such a table can also be mobile. The shape of the island should correspond to the shape of the room.

.
  • The kitchen area is less than 18 square meters. meters instead of the island you can install a peninsula, which is more compact due to the end, resting against a wall or a set.

Tip 5. If the kitchen is through, the working points should be placed so that the passage always remains free

If the kitchen is a passage, for example, combined with the hallway, has access to the terrace or backyard, then the working area (the very "triangle" of a plate, a sink and a refrigerator) must be planned so that it does not intersect with passage. Then the dashes of household members to and fro will not interfere with the person engaged in cooking or cleaning.

  • Remember that the width of the passage must be at least 1 m, in and ideal - 120 cm or more.

By the way, it's great to use a bar counter, island or peninsula as a space separator in the kitchen.

Council 6. If possible, install a sink at the window

If you have the ability to install / move the car wash to the window, then be sure to use it. So you can every day admire the nature, the backyard lawn or at least a kind of sky above the cottage community, doing everyday things. However, significant lengthening of communications is not always desirable.

.

Council 7. If your kitchen is in the attic floor ...

... abandon the hanging cabinets completely or partially, replacing them with open shelves, if the roof slopes hang too low. So you do not lock up the interior and use the walls under the slopes with advantage. In this case, the lower pedestals should be equipped with mainly drawers, which are much more convenient and roomier than cabinets. In the next selection of photos are examples of the arrangement of the kitchen in the attic.

Council 8. If the kitchen is combined with a living room or a dining room, zoned space

Zoning of space brings to the interior a sense of order and coziness. Here are a few tricks that are especially relevant for a kitchen in a country house:

  • Finishing of the floor in the kitchen and the floor in the living / dining room with different materials.So, for example, if in all rooms the floor is wooden, then in the kitchen it can be lined with more practical tiles, granite or stone.
.
  • Partial insulation of the kitchen.To make a mess in the kitchen or in the dining room do not spoil the view of the living room, you can install sliding doors, curtains, panel curtains, screens, low or narrow partitions.

.

  • Creating an arch or partitions with a wide opening, a glass sliding partition or columns.
.
  • Zoning by illumination.In the kitchen it is enough to install a bright top light and furniture lighting, the lamps themselves should be laconic. But in the living room, the light should be multilevel and softer when the main ceiling light is supplemented with floor lamps, wall sconces and table lamps. At the same time, the fixtures themselves can be elegant. The zone of the dining room is desirable to be allocated with hangers or a chandelier installed directly above the table as shown in the following photos.
.
  • Arrangement of furniture on the boundaries of zones.As delimiters you can use: a bar, a dining table, an island-table or a peninsula, a sofa, armchairs, consoles and shelves.

.
  • Use of carpets.A large carpet on the floor in the living / dining room and space will separate, and will create coziness. You can also lay a carpet-track between the zones. For example, between the working and dining areas.

Tip 9. For a combined space is required a powerful hood

To save curtains, furniture upholstery, cushions and carpets in the living room from culinary odors, you should install a dome-type hood with a capacity of at least 1000 m3 / h.

Tip 10. Floors, table top, apron and furniture facades of black and dark brown are impractical

On the dark surfaces, even the smallest crumbs, drops of water and dust are noticeable. Therefore, the most polluted areas in the kitchen - the apron, the table top and especially the floor - are better to decorate in light shades.

Tip 11. In the design of the country house kitchen, try something that did not dare in the city apartment

It can be a different style of interior, a bold color scheme, non-standard layout, decor techniques or things that you like, but do not fit into the interior of your "urban" kitchen.

Tip 12. Use mostly natural materials in decoration and decoration

By subordinating the idea of ​​closeness to nature, the interior of the house, you can fully experience the beauty of life outside the city.

  • In finishing the kitchen of a private house, try to avoid using vinyl wallpapers, plastic panels, double-glazed windows, laminate and unnatural linoleum.
  • Ideal furniture for the country house kitchen - wooden (including plywood and veneer), forged and wicker.
  • Textiles are also better to choose natural or mixed.

However, in some cases, the use of artificial materials is justified. For example, the countertop made of artificial agglomerate is much more practical and durable than tabletops made of natural stone (see Fig. material: stone countertops in the kitchen - practicality and natural charm), and the nylon carpet is almost as good as woolen and does not cause allergies.
