Advantages of open kitchen 💁🏻‍♀️

✨Open decoration will connect the kitchen, dining room, living room and other spaces, highlight the beauty of the space, and also expand the visual effect and reduce the crowdedness of the kitchen.

✨The open kitchen turns the kitchen from a purely functional place into a non-functional place where family members can communicate. Because cooking in the open kitchen, the line of sight can be spread all over the living room and dining room, so even if you are cooking, you can chat with your family without hindrance, promote communication and deepen feelings. A closed kitchen will make cooking more like a task, while an open kitchen will make you feel the breath of life. Reject the "Little Dark Room".

Disadvantages of open kitchen 🙅🏻‍♀️

⚡️The decisive reason why many people do not choose an open kitchen is that the fumes generated by the open kitchen are easy to spread to other spaces, making it more difficult to clean. In the long run, if the cleaning is not diligent, the walls and furniture of other spaces will be stuck with oil stains.

⚡️The open space must be kept clean to ensure the beauty of the kitchen. There are a lot of kitchen utensils, tableware and other items in the kitchen. If they are not stored properly, it is easy to present a messy feeling. To maintain the aesthetics of an open kitchen, it is not suitable to put a lot of kitchen utensils on the countertop.

Countermeasures and design plan ✅

🗝The most important thing for the problem of lampblack is to choose the right lampblack machine. The suction power of the range hood depends on the power of the motor, that is to say, the greater the power of the motor, the better the smoking effect.

🗝The problem of oil fume is unavoidable. Even in a closed kitchen, what we can do is to reduce the problem of oil fume. For example, we choose to start with kitchen utensils. Smokeless cookers such as microwave ovens, induction cookers, and smokeless pans are the best choices. Stir-frying will reduce the generation of excessive oil fumes.

🗝 Choose easy-to-clean materials to decorate your open kitchen. The walls and floors of the dining room and living room should be made of easy-to-clean materials like the kitchen. Floor tiles, laminate flooring and other materials should be used for the floor. Do not lay solid wood boards, because solid wood boards are easily affected by heat, which will cause deformation and create gaps.

🗝It is best to add hanging cabinets to the cabinets of the open kitchen. The cabinet space is very important for the storage of sundries. At the same time, when decorating, it is necessary to ensure that the space style is unified, otherwise the open kitchen with multi-element style will make the whole home look messy, because the kitchen is the center of a home and the center of gravity.
