Decorating a home is a big science, but decorating a kitchen is very important. Focus not only on appearance, but also on many details. These details will affect our daily life. Let's take a look at do's and don'ts of a kitchen remodel!
1. Kitchen lighting
Waterproof lamps should be used for kitchen fixtures, and line joints should be treated with waterproof electrical tape. To prevent water vapor condensation from entering, a short circuit may cause a fire. In addition to main lighting for illuminating kitchen, work area should also have auxiliary light sources.
2. Carefully choose wood products in kitchen
If a large number of wood products are used in kitchen, attention should be paid to kitchen ventilation and air exchange system in order to avoid prolonged accumulation of water vapor on floor or wall. Wooden products can crack, warp, or even rot. It is recommended to carefully choose wood products.
3. Kitchen area
The usable area of the kitchen should be moderate, too large and wasteful, too small and cramped. The reasonable area is about 10 square meters. It is also necessary to provide natural light and reasonable ventilation in kitchen. If kitchen area is large enough, you can place a small dining table. If kitchen is small, storage must be done well.
4. Kitchen ceiling
Fireproof, heat-resistant and easy-care materials should be chosen for kitchen countertop and wall. Such as glazed tiles, aluminum ceiling, etc. The kitchen ceiling should be designed with waterproof products, i.e. waterproof drywall, waterproof putty and high performance waterproof latex paint, so that it does not cause inconvenience to use while remaining beautiful.
5. Storage in kitchen
The kitchen should make full use of space, floor cabinets and wall cabinets should be used for storage, furniture should be as closed as possible. It is better to make low cabinets in kitchen retractable, push-pull type is easy to take and put, and view is better. The gap between working platforms of wall cabinets can be used to accommodate kitchen utensils.
6. Smoke problem in kitchen
The height of hood should be appropriate for height of user, and distance between hood of oil extraction and dosing pump and stove should not exceed 60 cm. Installing hood after cabinet can cause problems, so it is best to install it at same time as cabinet. Above are practical skills of decorating a kitchen.
