Sometimes it seems that the kitchen is so small that only one person can stay there. And only a folding table, a chair, a primus stove and a mini fridge will fit in the furniture. For you it is very important, because you are the owner of a small apartment? Dont be upset!
Let's go virtually to San Francisco, where we'll see tiny 8 square meters, which housed not only the kitchen, but also a miniature dining room.
Although this apartment is intended for renting, the owners still wanted to create a home in it and provide their residents with the necessary amenities. Mimi Chen was able to please the customer by implementing a wonderful project for the design of a small room.
The elegant glass doors of La Cantina, the fashionable dining group, the bright details immediately created an unconstrained and warm atmosphere.
This small kitchen has a big advantage: it adjoins the terrace. And spectacular glass doors to the whole wall this circumstance successfully emphasize. The room receives a large amount of natural light, visually expanding the space.
In addition, the residents will have the opportunity on warm sunny evenings to move the table and chairs to fresh air and enjoy a beautiful view with a cup of fragrant tea.
The dining area is organized by the designer in such a way that you do not feel jammed between the fridge and the wall. The table on the tripod from West Elm with a diameter of 76 cm fits perfectly into a small area.
The floors were made of solid, environmentally friendly materials called Terrazzo Crete. A custom-made hard polished coating with small fragments shimmering in the sun also helped to brighten, visually increase the room.
Over the countertop, Chen installed a long horizontal window to not only visually expand the space, but also to provide a brightness table with a sink. Spot lights located on the ceiling, perfectly share the dining area and the kitchen.
Due to the small width of the room, it was necessary to design deep cabinets. They are convenient for storage, and for built-in equipment. Utensils on open shelves, paintings on the walls dilute the ideal whiteness, breathing new life into the renovated kitchen and home comfort.
Another advantage of the layout is the availability of free space. Furniture working area, household appliances are compactly located along one wall. This move made it possible to save space, without compromising on convenience.
The gas hob Gaggenau 12-inch Vario for two burners occupies a minimal space, but its power exceeds the capabilities of the electric model.
A small hood is located unobtrusively above the hob. In addition to its direct functions, it performs tasks of lighting, which is very convenient in the evening.
A small compact stainless steel washbasin is conveniently equipped with an integrated dispenser with liquid soap. There is enough space between the stove and the sink to decompose the food or leave the washed dishes to dry.
Cabinets Porcelanosa, as well as custom-made in Ikea complement each other, forming a single ensemble. Above the furniture does not lie close to the ceiling, allowing the LED lighting to penetrate into the niche and create a feeling of ease, freedom.
The layout of the kitchen, which was developed by Mimi Chen, makes it possible not only to place functional furniture and equipment, but also leaves enough space.
The decision to place on 8 square meters another dining room once again proves that the main thing is to find good specialists who will be able to realize all your desires.
