Tip 1 Redevelopment A simple kitchen without walls smoothly turning into aliving room and corridor. What does the kitchen look like in a normal Soviet apartment? Rectangular, tiny, opposite the window or in the corner is the door, which also opens inward thus selecting the missing meters of the precious room. In addition, even the withdrawal of sewerage and water pipes in the corner, and gas pipes and heating columns along the walls take away the remains of the vital space. What to do in this case? First, we change the layout. We transfer the pipes, change the door opening, and if the kitchen is adjacent to other rooms, the optimal variant is the demolition of partitions that separate the kitchen from the next room. For example, if the kitchen touches the living room (usually the adjacent wall is not a carrier), you can very simply leave the kitchen space as a cooking space, and transfer the impoverished table to the living room and arrange a place for a family meal. Also do not forget to use the window's capabilities. For example, if a kitchen with a loggia is reasonably warm it, remove the inner window frame and arrange a dining table on the sill. If there are no loggias, also do not forget about the window opening, place a table on the windowsill for cooking - this will save a lot of space. The space under the windowsill is also easy to use. Just replace the huge cast-iron batteries with flat and more economical aluminum radiators, and the pipes run under the floor. Tip 2 Repair and design Correctly assembled and matching the texture and colors you can easily increase the sense of space, perspective and visually the size of the kitchen.

The northern side, on the contrary, will require refreshment and warming. Therefore, use warm and joyful colors: ocher, gently green pink.
