Cabinet knowledge and kitchen design principles
Cabinet is to be purchased by every household, and it is also one of the major items of decoration expenditure. This paper details the design considerations, purchase principles and purchase process of cabinets. I hope you can understand all aspects of cabinet ordering through reading this article and help you create a beautiful and practical kitchen space with low cost.
1、 Let's take a look at the cabinet style.
Classical style: the more the society develops, the more people's nostalgia is strengthened, which is also the reason why the classical style lasts for a long time. His elegant and noble, unique kindness and calm meet the hearts of successful people to cater to it. The traditional classical style requires a large kitchen space, and the U-shaped and island shaped kitchen are more suitable. In the material, solid wood and stainless steel cabinet, its color, pattern and its unique simplicity are highly praised by mature people.
Rural style: introducing the taste of the wilderness into the interior, keeping a lasting dialogue between home and nature, the hustle and bustle of the city can be quiet in this corner, and the rural style kitchen shortens the distance between people and nature. The colored ceramic tiles with rural flavor depict the natural landscape such as fruits, flowers and birds, showing a quiet and comfortable rustic demeanor. Log floor color here is also an excellent decorative material, the warm feeling of the foot seems to have affected the atmosphere of the earth. On the other hand, they choose wood grain color more. Washed green and lemon yellow are popular colors for many years, and the wood grain panel decoration strengthens the natural flavor. If you are a country dweller, the country style kitchen will make your life more leisurely and natural.
Modern style - modern style is the most popular. Every country and brand will timely launch modern style styles. Italian kitchenware is highly praised because of its novel design and strong sense of the times. Modern style kitchenware abandons gorgeous decoration. It is simple and clean on the line and pays more attention to color matching, from bright red, yellow and purple to bright blue and green Colors are applied. This style is also easier to match with other spaces. It is not constrained, the requirements of decorative materials are not high, which may be the reason why it is widely popular.
2： Cabinet ordering process
Various styles are decided by the material and color of cabinet door panel. The choice of style is very simple, cabinet exhibition hall will have display, you can choose freely, and design a set of very easy to use cabinet is not so simple.
The specific process of purchasing cabinet:
1. Cabinet designer should measure the size on site.
2. Fully communicate with you to understand your living habits and special requirements for cabinets.
Make the design of the cabinet. 3. Make your suggestions. And determine the sketch. This sketch is not a real production drawing. The main function is to mark the specific location of hydropower, so that hydropower construction enterprises can understand what work to do.
4. Water and electricity reconstruction construction, bricklaying and kitchen ceiling
5. After the completion of the basic decoration work, the cabinet designer will come to the door again to accurately measure and re produce the drawings. This drawing is really the production drawing. Often at this time, you really have to pay the deposit for the cabinet. After the cabinet company receives the deposit, it will be ready for production. Production time varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, mostly in about 30 days.
6. It can be installed after production.
3、 The design of buying cabinet is the key:
Cabinet company will have a special designer to communicate with you, cabinet design is a complex work, what should we pay attention to?
How to arrange the kitchen space, mainly depends on your kitchen conditions, should make the best use of the situation. Communicate with designers more.
1. Cooking has a prescribed process, mainly washing, cutting and stir frying. Your cabinet design should follow this process. It's better to design the pool cutting space and the stove in the same process line, ha ha, just like the assembly line.
2. Who will decide the height of the cabinet top?
Don't believe what others say about the so-called standard height of cabinet table top. The standard height of cabinet table top is standard, but the height and habits of each of us are not standard. Blindly doing cabinet table top according to the so-called standard height blindly will make you feel tired if you don't feel that you are holding hands when cooking.
The most scientific way is to find a cupboard with the same height by padding things to the same height, and then put the frying pan on it to simulate the cooking action to find the most comfortable height size for you. Subtracting the height of the stove rack from this size is the most suitable height for your cabinet table to fall. Generally speaking, this height is just right for you to cut vegetables. If you feel that it is not appropriate to cut vegetables at this height, you can only make the top of your cabinet into a high-low table, that is, the height of the cutting part is different from the height of the part where the cooking stove is put. In this way, the cost will be higher, but the appearance is often more beautiful.
3. Kitchen design is related to eating habits.
Do you like western food or Chinese food? The operation link of Western food and Chinese food is completely different, and the requirements for cigarette machine and stove are also different. If the specific function and size of the smoke machine and stove can be determined at the beginning of the design of cabinet, the drawing of cabinet design will be more accurate. Some customers will do two kitchens, the outside is the Chinese kitchen, the inside is the western kitchen.
If you eat the cabinet every day, it is the principle of the cabinet design.
4. Reduce cooking fume with design.
Chinese people have the habit of stir frying. The most annoying thing is the cooking fume. The smell is not good, and it is very easy to dirty the wall. If you have a balcony next to the kitchen, you'd better move the stove to the balcony. The balcony door can separate the lampblack. It's very simple to move the stove. It's OK to move the gas pipe and power supply. It doesn't matter if the smoke pipe is longer than the part outside your home. Moreover, the main part of the flue pipe is on the ceiling, which does not affect the height of your kitchen. Many owners like open kitchen, open kitchen also saves space, but if you can't close the frying space, you'd better not do open kitchen.
If there is no kitchen balcony, it is recommended to arrange the stove in the corner of the kitchen, especially in the corner of the wall, which can best reduce the amount of smoke emission. (the original three sides scattered smoke into two sides.). Kitchen door had better not use sliding door, close is not tight, mainly sliding door track, a few months later will be greasy to death, door opening and closing is not smooth, very uncomfortable. It's better to use the sliding door and the guide rail.
Note: some people are convenient to pass dishes and set the stove close to the door. When opening or closing the door, the fire is easily blown out by the wind, and the lampblack is also easy to float into the dining room. And some people in order to smoke can be dispersed immediately, the stove is set under the window, which is also very dangerous. The position of the stove should be close to the outer wall to facilitate the installation of the range hood. The position in front of the window is best left for the conditioning table, because this part of the work takes the most time. Looking up at the beautiful scenery outside the window, blowing the warm warm wind, the operator has a good mood
5. Design the kitchen electrical appliances scientifically and reasonably.
When you use the kitchen cabinet, you must consider the reasonable position of the kitchen switch. There are a lot of small appliances that can be installed in the kitchen. Write out what you think of: dishwasher, pure water machine, microwave oven, rice cooker, food processing machine, electric kettle, induction cooker, bread maker, electric baking pan, coffee maker, egg maker, electric oven, disinfection cabinet, refrigerator. Emphasis on the design of electrical location, in order to arrange the work of circuit transformation. These appliances will not be used at the same time, but it is necessary to arrange as many sockets as possible.
Pure water machine is generally arranged under the sink, pay attention to the power and water.
The oven can be placed under the stove, without the oven, you can put a pot under the stove, and you can stir fry the dishes conveniently.
The place where the sauce is pulled or placed should be close to the stove.
6. Design kitchen operation lamp. With this lamp, you can see clearly when washing dishes and cutting vegetables.
The lamp in the picture on the right above is the kitchen operating lamp. Let the designer design with you, mainly the circuit. This kind of light switch is not convenient and beautiful. The method of kitchen operation lamp designed by ourselves is as follows:
Buy 2-3 cow's eye lamps with a thickness of about 2 cm in the market. The holes in the lower part of the cabinet are exactly the same as the diameter of the bull eye lamp. Insert the bull eye lamp into the hole and connect the wire, so that the cabinet manufacturer can make a lower board of the upper cabinet, and cover the opening from the inside of the cabinet when installing.
The wire and plug are inserted into the socket reserved at high place. Install a big rocker switch between the upper cabinet and the lower cabinet to control the upper socket. This way, when my hands are full of water, I can turn on the kitchen lights with my elbows. The operation lamp can't be seen at ordinary times, so the design is more beautiful. Of course, such a design requires circuit modification in advance.
7, determine the type and color of cabinet door panel and cabinet countertop.
Fireproof board, solid wood, blister or stainless steel paint? What color do you like? What color do you like? Does this color match your main decoration style? About the choice of door panel and countertop, the following will be specifically detailed.
8. Change the location of water and electricity as little as possible
In addition, on the premise of meeting the above requirements, try to reduce the changes. If you move more, you will spend more. Many excellent developers (such as Vanke) hand in the water and electricity in the most reasonable position, no need to change.
9. Design principles of upper and lower cabinets
Some people in order to pursue the formal regularity of the cabinet, or reduce the cost, the upper cabinet and the lower cabinet adopt the form of opposite door, but this will bring a lot of inconvenience to users. When the cabinet door is opened on the side, the operator should take the articles in the operation area nearby. If you don't pay attention to it, your head will hit the door. And the goods stored in the lower layer of the cabinet must squat down to get them. For easy access, the most commonly used items should be placed between 70 cm and 185 cm in height. This area is called comfort storage. The best height of the upper cabinet from the ground is 145 cm. In order to use conveniently when opening, the cabinet door can be changed into an upward folded air pressure door. The depth of the counter can not be too large, 40 cm is the most suitable. And the bottom cabinet is best in the form of a large drawer cabinet, even if it is the lowest level of goods, you can open the drawer can be easily reached, without squatting down and stretching your hands to get things inside.
10. The refrigerator should be designed at the position closest to the kitchen door
If the refrigerator is placed at will, the operator will walk a lot more. For example, the food taken out from the refrigerator can not be put on the console.
The refrigerator should be designed in the nearest position to the kitchen door. In this way, the purchased food can be directly put into the refrigerator without entering the kitchen, and when cooking, the first process is to take food from the refrigerator. Refrigerator near the design of an operating table, take out the food can be placed on the top of the simple processing. Whatever the shape and size of the kitchen. In the process of the kitchen, the storage area centered on the refrigerator, the washing area centered on the pool, and the working triangle formed by the cooking area centered on the stove are the most time-saving and labor-saving.
