Installing a kitchen can be tricky, but practicality is the most important consideration. Before starting such a project and its multiple aspects and expenses, the first piece of advice is reflecting on your real necessities and your way of life. For instance: do you like to eat in your kitchen? Are you a cooking fan, or do you prefer to simplify your food preparation? According to your anser to these questions, you can plan the configuration of your kitchen, keeping three zones in mind: The working area, the pantry and the place to eat. The idea is to distribute the elements in such a way unnecessary moves are avoided.
There are kitchens distributed in a line, long and narrow. They are located against a single wall or against two walls, one in front of the other. In this type of kitchen distribution, crossing points in the working area must be avoided. The apppiances should go embedded to walls.
Other kitchens have the shape of an L. In this case, the elements are distribured along two adjacent walls, thus allowing a continuous working area. Another possible distribution is a U shape, which is one of the most functional ones, as it allows the use of three walls.
Finally, we have the kitchen with an island in the middle. The island gathers the working and cooking areas, and, if it is big enough, the dining zone can be included on it. This way to distribute a kitchen is very nice, as you do not have to work looking at a wall, and it allows you to cook for your guests and eat with them at the same time and the same place.
