THE EVOLUTION OF THE KITCHEN ENVIRONMENT
THE OPEN SPACE KITCHEN
If in the past the kitchen was exclusively seen as a functional space to prepare food, nowadays his role is completely changed. This space has evolved becoming part of the living area and introducing the concept of open space.
This means that the kitchen is symbol of sharing, union and entertainment.
To demonstrate this, VAMA CUCINE proposes ad hoc solutions that, on one hand, preserve the soul of the kitchen concept and, on the other, innovate the whole image of this environment.
VAMA gives also many suggestions to his customers during the selection process of materials and finishes that need to be perfectly matched with the living area. In the case of the open space kitchen, it is better to use warm finishes and an appropriate lightening that doesn’t disturb.
Another important aspect to consider is the choice of the hood that not only must guarantee elevated and efficient performances, but it must be also silent so as not to create both olfactory and sound discomfort. One of the latest news is the hood integrated in the hob which is not only silent but also hidden and therefore invisible.
Finally, the choice of the appliances is fundamental. These, in fact, has the power to donate an elegant aspect to the whole room. The wine cellars that become a furnishing element are an example.
SOLUTIONS FOR A COMFORTABLE OPEN SPACE KITCHEN
When we talk about an open space kitchen, there is the idea that it can realize it only in presence of big spaces. This is not true. It is possible to create an open space kitchen also with limited spaces. Obviously, it will be necessary to adopt different and specific strategies according to the available space, such as the use of a peninsula or a dividing wall.
On the contrary, in case of big spaces, the best choice is the use of the island that becomes the central element of the room.
In conclusion, nowadays the kitchen is the heart of the entire home and must communicate with the others domestic environments because it is a space used and lived in different ways depending on the time of day.
