If it is a curbstone, then the stylalka is closed by the door, if the countertop is a styalka is part of the interior. Convenient is the corner sink.

  • Frontal perfectly fits under the dining table top or under the work surface. The technology can be integrated with the cabinet.
  • The machine is built into the corner set for the kitchen.

What you need to consider

  1. Before installation, consider vibration when spinning. Think of strengthening the floor so that it does not sink with time.
  2. Do not install the machine close to the walls of the headset. Leave a gap of a few centimeters. Otherwise, when spinning, the technique will shake the entire table top.

When installing, do not forget to follow the rules. The stylalk should be kept away from other devices. For example, a machine and a gas stove are separated by a curbstone. A large refrigerator is better to install on the opposite side.

  1. When selecting the stylalki, consider whether it will be closed with a door. Otherwise, you need to choose the color of the case, which will suit the interior of the kitchen.


  • The machine does not take up space in the bathroom, where there is not enough space.
  • You can install a model with a large load, regardless of the size.
  • Communications are in an accessible place.


  • Installation of a full-size machine requires careful planning. Subsequently it is difficult to change the location of the headset.
