The kitchen is, without a doubt, one of the more complex rooms in the house. As a matter of fact, in the kitchen alone you prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner, and sometimes other various meals. Whether it’s a kitchen for a large family or at a bachelor pad, everything has to be down to the last detail. But what are the requirements for a kitchen like so? First, you need to take into account the fact that kitchens need to be aesthetically pleasing while at the same time practical. Every piece of furniture must thus be chosen not only with aesthetics on your mind but also based on practicality. The secret, then, is to find the right balance and better manage the various components in order to keep the environment at ease and allow for extreme mobility. Obviously, when you are struggling with cuisine choice you can use your surroundings as an indication of what you should whip up. In larger homes, kitchens can have rather significant dimensions but, in some cases, may be very small rooms, if you can even call them that. In summary the kitchen offers a long series of very interesting alternatives. Let’s have a look at the furnishings for the kitchen found at LOVEThESIGN. First off, it’s worth noting that at LOVEThESIGN you have the option to purchase two different kitchen models, both very versatile, adapting to any kind of environment. The first of the two is the Miniki kitchen. For this model, it’s a sort of hideaway kitchen. Anyone who decides to buy this type of kitchen won’t have to fret over space management. In small to medium areas, for example, the kitchen must be transformed into a living room area as well. One of the biggest shortcomings of such a, however, is the fact that they are far too visible and can alter any environment where they’re placed. With the Miniki kitchen this problem no longer exists. After use, in fact, it can be easily hidden, so as to allow tenants and guests to experience this environment as if the kitchen was not there. The retractable mechanism is very simple: the cooking area in question is essentially transformed into a sideboard in every which way. At first glance, no one would ever think that the sideboard is anything but that. As you can imagine, this is a product that was aimed to address the need to perfectly combine practicality and aesthetics without sacrificing practicality. One thing is certain: Especially in smaller rooms, space has to be managed in the most efficient way and, for this reason, it is essential to assemble kitchens properly in a versatile yet still very functional way. A very important aspect to be considered concerns how the kitchen is very simple to assemble and also can be set up in various ways depending on personal taste. Additionally, the entire kitchen can adapt perfectly to any kind of space. The elements included in the Miniki kitchen are a sink, a refrigerator, a cover and an induction stove. It really is an ideal product for any type of environment. If so desired, it could also be used in an office that also requires an eating area or, alternatively, in large houses that want to give off an out of the ordinary vibe. Originality, however, remains the one constant. Another option is opting for the slimline version. As you might guess from its name, the main difference when compared to the previously mentioned kitchen is size. The basic concept, however, is the same. For this reason, this second version is designed exclusively for those who have little space but need every inch of it, all the while without giving up practicality and, above all, style.
