- Bulky air ducts
To construct these structures, if the plate is located far from the vent hole, is optional. A more aesthetic solution is a hood with a carbon filter. She does not need an air duct, you just need to change the filter regularly.
- Glossy facades
They look, of course, effectively, but they leave traces of fingers. To wipe such surfaces it is necessary every day, therefore at once add to a cost of kitchen a salary of the housekeeper.
- Dining tables with glass tops
Such models are very popular, because they do not visually block up space, but they are not suitable for the kitchen! First, even on the most durable glass, sooner or later, there are scratches. Secondly, no matter how carefully you put dishes on the table, covering it for breakfast, the knock will still rise so that you will wake all the household members.
- Wooden floors
If you have small children, in the kitchen you should not lay floors from solid wood. Lovely crumbs always spill something, so the coating is unlikely to retain a “marketable look” for long!
- Shelves instead of boxes
A typical mistake is to plan regular shelves where they can be replaced by boxes. The fact is that the contents of the drawer can be easily looked around. To get to things standing in the depth, one does not have to carry out archaeological excavations. Shelves are often turned into a “cemetery” of utensils and supplies, which the owners simply forget.
- Sink “irregular” shape
Some people like it when the inner contour of the shell is round, while others recognize only a square one. Strange as it may seem, neither of them refuses to re-education – the “wrong” shell will be annoying for years. Therefore, do not experiment, and for all repairs, keep to the form that you are used to.
- Heavy cupboards on light walls
You can hang storage systems directly on the wall, only if it is a capital one. Gypsum cardboard septum can not withstand their weight. If the wall does not inspire confidence, you need to install a special support for fixing the upper cabinets.
- The lack of space for small appliances
Built-in technology is good, but you can not do without stand-alone appliances! Immediately provide for them a place on the table top (and sockets). Embed everything is impossible!
- Lack of lighting fixtures
There are several levels of lighting in the kitchen: the upper light to the working area, the built-in lamps under the upper boxes, the lamp over the dining table. A separate task is to place the switches so that it is easy for them to reach.
- Technique “not at that” height
If you have small children, in the kitchen you should not lay floors from solid wood. Little children always spill something, so the cover is unlikely to retain a “marketable look” for long!
- Lack of “buffer zones” on a tabletop
Between the refrigerator, sink and stove, the parts of the working surface are required. After all, you first need to get the products from the refrigerator (and put somewhere there), then wash (and put somewhere else again), and then already fry or cook.
