Of all the rooms in the house, designing and furnishing a kitchen is the most demanding and requires experience and attention, as there are many aspects to consider.
Furnishing it by thinking of “joining” individual bases, would risk being just a copy and paste of other designs or your friend’s kitchen. Or, extrapolating individual details from images seen and downloaded from other sites, visited by those who approach to furnish their home, can lead to irreparable errors.
Among the many details that require experience and professionalism in the design, we mention the most important ones:

1- Determine the characteristics of the kitchen, based on the environment and your needs. We recommend opting for the linear kitchen, corner kitchen, or for more generously sized rooms, to design it with an island or peninsula.

2- Study the functionality of the kitchen operating area. Sink, hob, must be proportionally separated from each other in order to be considered “comfortable”. In this way it can be lived by the family in total comfort and above all to be an environment in total safety

3- Eye on functionality, but with due attention. The ergonomics of the kitchen must be studied based on the person who has to buy the kitchen. Ergonomics is a science that studies the dimensions of the kitchen (height of the countertop, height of the wall units and much more) according to the height of the person who has to use the kitchen in the house, most of the time.

4- Light is a fundamental aspect for having a correct vision on the worktops, in the environment in general and in particular with the correct lighting on the dining table

5 – Determine the correct position of the water and electrical systems, carefully study the expulsion of the hood (many times an absolutely diminished topic).

Everything turns into a kitchen assembly without problems, which can inevitably affect the safety of the kitchen environment.

We can summarize that a piece of furniture with many functional gaps makes it useless, especially the kitchen environment can be beautiful and elegant, but for those who have to cook, living with their family the most important situation is functionality and safety. As you can see, furnishing a kitchen is very complex in its design so the advice is to make use of professionals with great experience in the sector.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE DOORS OF YOUR KITCHEN

Normally you choose a kitchen based on taste, you buy for emotions, you can be fascinated by the composition or the color combination. Once the composition has been decided, the materials to be used remain. The kitchen doors can be in melamine, laminate, lacquered, glass, aluminum, stoneware or wood. Obviously the choice of materials affects the cost, so you must first of all have a spending budget. The most economy door is not always the least beautiful, today most of the doors sold are in melamine, inexpensive and resistant available in various colors, smooth or with 3D effects.

KITCHEN WITH MELAMINE DOORS

Melamine is an agglomerated panel covered with sheets of paper impregnated with melamine resins to give resistance to the product. Thanks to digital printing, marble or wood effects can also be obtained. To the touch they have irregularities that make the product seem very likely. Melamine is resistant, durable, easy to clean, versatile and does not fear infiltration.

KITCHENS WITH LAMINATE DOORS

Laminated doors are much more resistant than melamine doors, as the material is made up of layers of superimposed phenolic paper and treated with melamine resins, in fact the greater resistance allows this material to be used also as a top. We highly recommend this material for impact resistance, ease of maintenance and cleaning.

KITCHEN WITH GLASS DOORS

The glass doors can be both glossy and opaque. The glass is painted on the back and subsequently glued onto aluminum frames or agglomerate panels. The beauty of this product especially in the gloss is the brightness and the reflection. Easy to clean material and does not alter the color over time. To ensure home safety, the rear color is applied on film (glass film) or before painting, it is tempered to be more resistant to impact

KITCHEN WITH LACQUERED DOORS

The lacquered doors are both matt and glossy. Normally the painting is done on an MDF panel, pleasant to the touch with infinite chromatic possibilities. Kitchens with lacquered doors are delicate, however, and certainly we cannot make them durable over time.

KITCHEN WITH ALVEOLAR DOORS – GRES

The aluminum doors are composed of a honeycomb panel with metal finishes dust, bronze, corten, matt or glossy lacquered or even wood veneered. Obviously the main feature of this product is lightness, not surprisingly it allows you to make doors up to cm. 120 x 270 in height. Even the 1 cm thickness gives the possibility of designing a kitchen with micro thicknesses.
Stoneware doors, like glass doors, are supported by aluminum or agglomerate panels. The peculiarity of this product is uniformity with the TOP and resistance to scrapes, light and stains.

Finally, the wooden doors are made using wood veneer on agglomerated panels. In turn, the wood can be treated with acrylic or oil paints to have a very natural tactile effect. Obviously the wooden finishes are varied, or there are also pre-composed woods which are in any case recomposed and colored wood scraps according to the market demand.
