In the house of series p44t / 25 or housing of individual building, kitchen design is often built around a bay window. It will help to embody the ideas of zoning and organization of space. The presented architectural element looks like a protrusion on the facade of the building. Kitchen design with a bay window will help push the boundaries of the room, make it more lit, give it the most original look.
It is worth noting that houses of type p-44t appeared in new buildings a little less than 40 years ago - in 1979. These 17-storey buildings are famous for their optimal layout. There is definitely enough space for the manifestation of fantasy - such a kitchen of 13 square meters with a total area. The advantages of having a bay window are indisputable: the design can advantageously use the existing projections of various sizes and shapes. Often the bay window is the central figure of the room, its semantic guide. Therefore, the layout, design and location of the furniture are made taking into account its features.
Variations of shapes and lines
Creating the interior of the kitchen in p44t, it is important to take into account the shape of the projections (rectangular, multifaceted, rounded). Kitchens of the p44t series of houses are distinguished by the presence of triangular bay windows, angular semi-eers, or trapezoid projections. Each of these aspects must be correctly beaten to get a spectacular result.
It is recommended to take into account: with all the advantages of a kitchen with a bay window, it is important to pay due attention to its arrangement in order to avoid clutter and the type of architectural nonsense.
The choice of options for glazing, taking into account the architectural specificity of the building:
- full - in the form of a glass "flashlight";
- partial - to the middle, with standard window parameters.
The design of the 13-meter kitchen in p44t can be made in a variety of variations. Each of the solutions presented accounts for a lot of original ideas and design embodiments. Which of them would be preferable is a matter of taste of the owner himself.
Thinking through the kitchen design in p44t, it is worth considering the future purpose of the bay window:
|Isolated area||Used as a chill-out (private place to rest, read, hobby classes), a mini-office and even a greenhouse, thanks to the penetration of a large amount of light. Bay window is delimited by using partitions, curtains, shelving, a screen or a bar. The role of the latter can perform competently refitted sill. Such a kitchen design in p 44 is relevant for one-bedroom apartments, as as a result, another room is formed.|
|The continuation of the kitchen||The result depends on the projection area and the special preferences of the owners. The paramount is the stylistic combination of the design of the bay window with the interior design of the kitchen as a whole.|
|Canteen||Accommodation is directly dependent on the presence of a spacious area (13-16 sq m). It is important to install the hob and sink at a great distance - so the kitchen corner and table of the appropriate form will freely enter the bay window.|
|Work zone||Relevant when not impressive area of the bay window. Provides the ability to release any wall to create a complete dining area.|
Dining area: planning specifics
Some confusion still occurs in the process of planning and creating a kitchen project with a bay window. However, one should not neglect such wide opportunities for creative realization - they are completely inaccessible to the majority of owners of typical kitchens. But if desired, a bay window is created by re-planning and combining the room with a balcony or a loggia.
In this part of the room there will be a dining area - the first thing that comes to mind when creating kitchen design projects. It is spectacular, functional and relatively accessible, since there is no need to transfer communications.
A sofa with storage compartments or a bench in the form of a ledge is concentrated along the window. Near the table is located, preferably round or oval, which helps to soften the boundaries of the dining area. Well, if it is sliding - so with a large number of guests it can be deployed along the kitchen. The remaining space will organically enter the bar counter, headsets and other elements of the working area.
Creating a working platform is important when the window is not particularly attractive or the apartment is located at a small distance from the ground. Such a choice will note that kitchen design p44t has a similarity with the style of a country estate.
Among the options for arranging a bay area:
- placing the table top with the transition to the window sill - to increase the total working platform. This placement contributes to better light and visibility, since there will be no shortage of natural light;
- Embedding the sink is an extraordinary solution to brighten up the routine washing of dishes with an excellent window view. Such a kitchen, the bay window design of which is extremely non-standard, requires thinking through the supply of sewage and water in advance;
- installation of the upper modules on both sides of the bay window - for its visual deepening and vastness. Especially often found such a kitchen design in p44t with windows of small dimensions.
In advance, you should worry about the transfer of communications, so that the floors will be higher, which will reduce the height of the ceilings. The set is ordered non-standard form for an individual project. Transfer of batteries and closing them with cabinets are excluded, therefore, in order to avoid disturbing air circulation, the sill-table top should be equipped with a grill and holes.
It is recommended to take into account: it is better to avoid installing the hob in the bay window, as this entails difficulties with installing the hood and fogging the windows.
Nuances of arrangement of bay space
Ignoring the size of the windows, they should not be blocked with furniture and unnecessarily cluttered. The choice of curtains does not require strict decisions, but it is not recommended to overdo the amount of textiles. Portieres, blinds, roller and roman blinds that will not hide the space are completely applicable.
It is desirable that their color borders stay in the area of light pastel colors to preserve the atmosphere of a room rich in light. At the same time, one cannot neglect artificial lighting - its system must be carefully considered.
The perfect option when choosing the eaves - a curved modern model that does not impede the free movement of curtains for a little or full shading. As for the design of space delimited by partitions, it is created on the basis of similar styles, but in no way diametrically contradictory. The shape of the table must repeat the geometric shape of the bay space (oval or rectangular). In the same manner it is recommended to arrange the ceiling for visual zoning. The last aspect involves visual isolation through different shades and types of finishes.
Principles of choice of lighting and color solutions
The design of the kitchen-living room with a bay window is designed to be as harmonious as possible so that individual areas do not stand out from the overall picture, complementing it. When choosing a bay window color scheme, it is important not to neglect its central advantage - light. Competently beat the designated moment will turn out when using light tones, avoiding excessively dark and saturated.
Artificial lighting in the presence of the dining group is performed when using a pendant lamp. If we are talking about the design of the working area, then not superfluous is the symmetrical arrangement of the sconces on the brackets. A recreational area is able to decorate a floor lamp or a wall lamp that emits a not too bright and intense light. This is important in view of the fact that the light will not cut the eyes and tire the guests.
It is recommended to take into account: it is advisable to adjust the lighting so that it is possible to turn off the light at the right moment separately in this zone and light it up.
Often, designers neglect this issue, boldly dismantling the heating radiator from the bay window to increase its total area. Most often, this risk is absolutely not justified, since the outer wall is completely unheated. The main thing - to avoid the appearance of dampness and mold, what causes excessive moisture. These factors will adversely affect the condition of the furniture. This, combined with a considerable area of glazing, necessitates the consideration of additional heating methods. Among those - installation of water or electric underfloor heating. Through the rise of warm air up the bay window is heated in its full volume.
Among other things, the installation of such a system contributes to raising the level of the floor in the corresponding zone, so that it can be distinguished in the form of a podium. And the interior of the kitchen in private homes often allows for the installation of floor convectors with a heat exchanger located along the outer wall. Through special gaps in the floor, warm air will penetrate inside, maintaining the proper temperature near the windows and in the room as a whole. In addition, you should take care of the quality of glass and regular ventilation in order to avoid air stagnation.
