The dream of every housewife
Scope of work
Despite the fact that the atmosphere and design of every kitchen is unique (although planning often typical), you can select a number of works without which no serious repair is complete:
A common sight in the initial stage of repair
- removal of the old finish;
Tip: when the scheduled renovation of the kitchen - design plays an important role, so the design environment to devote enough time.
- replacement of pipes, may have to lay them on the new design and layout if santehpriborov change much after the renovations. The same applies to laying of electric, gas;
- when a renovated kitchen with his hands, finishing wall often combine their alignment to It is not necessary to use plaster, any defects easily eliminate wall paneling plasterboard;
By itself, gypsum board - a fragile material, so in places where you will hang the shelves and cabinets, you need to provide for the transfer of force to the wall.
Plasterboard this load will not stand.
- allows repair the original ceiling decoration, some even install the suspended ceiling, although called a decision justified, given the specificity of space, it is difficult;
Ceiling with the original pattern
- when the floor finish can be used almost all materials. Often selected tile, as it is resistant to abrasion, chemical cleaning products, etc., but can be used laminate and linoleum;
- replacement of windows and doors is not required;
- completed renovation of the kitchen arrangement of kitchen furniture and equipment in accordance with the project drawn up in advance.
Several ideas repair
Apart from "technical" part is of great importance project itself, the problem is often compounded by lack of space. The goal is always the same - to make the kitchen comfortable place all the necessary equipment and to ensure that the design set up in a positive way. Get this effect by 6-7 m2 - a real art.
A few general recommendations
So you've decided to renovate the kitchen - where to start?
First of all, with the plan:
- to draw a kitchen scale;
- to estimate the location of furniture and equipment after repair.
Kitchen layout Example competent
At the same time is very important form of the room:
- for example, in a small square room will look good L-shaped layout. In such a case it is possible to arbitrarily strip room 2 functional zones - working triangle and the portion for taking food;
With this zoning is often combined floor finish.
For example, in the dining area can be laid laminate and in working triangle - ceramic tiles.
- repair large kitchen projects are constructed in such a way that the space in the center is not empty. It applies island design that is a massive desk with a granite worktop and sink is located on the center, and the walls of the focuses all necessary furniture;
Island design is suitable for large rooms
- peninsular layout - a table with a sink stands, but is located right next to the wall;
- U-shaped layoutIt considered universal, suitable for medium-sized;
Example U-shaped plan
- If the footage is small, it fit 2-row layout, One wall is a compact table with cutting board and sink, the furniture, the other - a dining area.
Design elongated kitchen
If a creative crisis does not allow to consider kitchen design after the repair yourself, you can always explore the repairs in the kitchen in the pictures.
Weight projects in the public domain will help to choose a suitable and slightly modify it to your needs.
Making an estimate of the future revolution in the kitchen, you need to take into account the type of material from which the furniture will be made, the type of flooring, and so on. D.
Such embodiments are possible:
- solid wood furniture - forever choice, this furniture will last for at least several decades. protective structures Processing makes it slabovospriimchivoy to moisture and household chemicals. Key weaknesses - a very high cost and heavy weight;
Solid wood furniture - a win-win
- MDF - the worst choice to bring the asset is possible unless the low cost. You can stay on this material only if the budget for the kitchen renovation is severely limited. MDF after getting wet swells and does not restore the original shape;
- plastic dishes - a good compromise between cost, durability and good looks;
Plastic dishes can also look solid
- plywood - many with little respect for her, but the furniture is made of thick sheets are guaranteed to last for more than 10-15 years. A layered structure and the use of glue in the manufacture guarantees its resistance to moisture;
- Chipboard sheets can also be considered a good choice, spectacular appearance, relatively low cost and durability explain the popularity of dishes from chipboard.
For clarity, we can after measuring the dimensions of the room to create a 3D model of the room layout or glued by hand from cardboard.
It is more convenient to evaluate the effectiveness of the option selected conditions.
We solve the problem with the gas pipes
The question is how to make repairs in the kitchen, is not limited only to the interchange of furniture and the replacement of wall decoration. It makes sense to hide the communication so that nothing after the completion of not deface walls. Often thick metal pipe just go along the walls without adding room appeal.
There are several ways to disguise them:
- use a box of drywall. The frame is constructed from metal profiles, sheathed sheets puttied and finished;
The pipeline is hiding behind plasterboard
- box may be made of particle board;
- most often used to disguise the furniture without back wall. Especially because when an individual order furniture makers take into account the specific features of the geometry of the room;
Furniture without back wall - a great way to hide the gas pipe
- Sometimes the tube is converted to a kitchen element, using it as a support for hanging small shelves. To do this, remove the pipe enough to paint, polish and protect against rust.
The pipeline serves as a support for shelves
Work on gas equipment prohibited from willfully, so do not do without design permission.
And all the work will be carried out the gas company.
If the repair involves working with gas equipment, then it makes sense to just move the gas column to the right place. If you plan on replacing the pipes, we can just solve this issue.
The main thing to pay attention to the gas company - access pipes. If they are hidden, for example, a washing machine, it must be installed on wheels that a pipeline could be reached without any problems. You also need to ensure the normal operation of the hood.
It may be used instead of conventional flexible metal pipes. In the case of a maximum gas hose length is 4.0 m.
Selection of materials for floors and walls
As for what to choose materials for the renovation of the kitchen, you need to take into account the specifics of the room.
For example, wall finishing material should have:
- moisture resistance, the walls have periodically cleaned with a damp cloth;
- resistant to ultraviolet rays;
- resistant to mechanical damage.
Taking into account the following criteria for the walls optimum material - tile or simply paint the walls. In practice usually combine several materials of the wall, which can get the spray when cooking food and washing dishes, finished with tiles, and the rest of the room can be painted.
Part of the wall is tiled
Also, plastic panels and decorative plaster can be applied. But finishing the walls under a natural stone - not the best solution, a relief surface in the kitchen greatly complicate the cleaning of the walls.
You can use the wallpaper, but they must be water-resistant and have a good water vapor permeability.
When a repair of an apartment with his hands - the kitchen would require an individual approach. If the rest of the rooms planned floor of laminate in the kitchen makes sense to use tile or natural stone. Parquet and laminate will also look good, but the tree, despite the protection, yet is more susceptible to moisture and chemicals. Even more rarely used linoleum (for the same reason).
Combined kitchen floor
The optimal variant of the ceiling
Renovated kitchen allows you to arrange the kitchen, even a false ceiling.
In general, such embodiments are possible such as:
- ceiling insulation boards. This material is easy to clean, the plate can be painted in the color you want, weigh little plates, so held on the ceiling with glue;
Tile is simply glued to the ceiling
- conventional paint;
- suspended ceiling - costs a lot, and it is easy to damage;
- Drywall can be used in middle and high areas. Due to the frame is slightly reduced height of the kitchen, but it allows you to equalize the curvature of the ceiling, and hide the wiring, so that the kitchen renovation is somewhat simplified;
Trey ceilings made of plasterboard
- hanging rack - the benefits are the same as that of the drywall, it differs slightly more complex installation.
Multilevel ceilings in the kitchen - a controversial decision. In small rooms to use them is not necessary, this decision looks good in apartments where the kitchen combined with dining room or a living room. This is one of the types of plasterboard ceiling, so that the steps of creating the same - frame assembly, its cladding, coating and finishing.
