Narrow kitchens; what you should keep in mind to put a small bar or shelf to eat in it

The narrow and small kitchens They are very common in our real estate park. One of the problems of these kitchens is that it usually costs a lot take out a hole to make an area where you can eat.

In fact, the evil of newly built homes in this country can be lounges and narrow kitchens. As if the lack of square meters were overcome by making right and left halls and kitchens elongated and narrow.

Not to mention that they are usually kitchens with little natural lighting because the light usually comes from a window that gives a clothesline. I speak as an expert on the subject (three of the four houses in which I have lived enjoyed this magnificent distribution) and I also know that I am not the only one who has suffered them. So here are some "tricks" to get a minimum area to eat in the kitchen when you are alone, sometimes informal ...

The kitchens less than 2.10 cm wide are condemned to have an online distribution. At most they could have a distribution in L as in the cover image.

From 2.10 cm wide a kitchen can now place two fronts in line. One of them may be of less depth than usual (30 or 45 cm) but incorporates electromedical.

In this case, -the one of the kitchen of two fronts in line-, you can use one of the fronts to empty the kitchen furniture countertop and use it as a eating area.

If the kitchen has very little total width, -1.50 meters is the least one should have-, and there is no table (usually 60 cm deep at least) is left the resource of the bar or the shelf on the wall.

WHAT YOU HAVE TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT TO PLACE A SKIRT AGAINST THE WALL IN THE KITCHEN TO EAT

  • The shelf should be like minimum of 30 cm deep and if they can be 45 cm better. Keep in mind that on average a flat plate has 25 cms, so in 30 cms it fits the flat plate and your legs (badly well below).

  • As for the width it will be as long as the kitchen and the steps (opening doors etc ...) allow it. For one to eat comfortably, it should be 60 cm wide, from there then with 1.20 cms it will be a bar for two people, with 1.80 cms for three ...

  • At least there should be 60 cms between the bar and the beginning of the countertop.

  • The height at which to place the bar or shelf to eat can be; the height of the countertop (91 cm approx); or a little higher, up to 1.10 / 1.20 cms. And better the second option for really narrow spaces because it will make the space clearer.

  • Something must happen in front of the bar. I want to say that it is a narrow place to eat quickly with a view of the wall so it is better that there is something nice to contemplate. It can be a washable wallpaper, some pictures, some shelves, a mirror.

  • Of course if there was a window (for the privileged to have it), then better put the mini bar in front of a window and if it overlooks a patio, place a nice blind or velux.

  • The sidewalks or seats for the bar They should bother as little as possible but if they are comfortable better. By comfortable we mean that they have a small backrest, that they are padded and that they have a bar to support the foot ... Since the place to eat is "uncomfortable" that at least the seats are not.

  • The light. As we refer to narrow and small kitchens, it is normal for lighting to be general but make sure that this area is illuminated. Whenever possible you can put a wall lamp or if there are shelves on the bar, that its lower part is illuminated to illuminate the eating area ...
