Use light to create an atmospheric ambience
In open-plan kitchen/living rooms, mood lighting can make an important contribution to the character of the living area. It creates an atmospheric ambience and sets the kitchen in an attractive light.
An elegant solution for drying hand towels
Hand towels should not be hung up inside a cupboard when they are wet. Long bar handles are useful for hanging damp towels.
Smart design provides plenty of space to put things down
Professional cooking requires at least one large and continuous working area. 25% more space can be gained by designing an extra-deep base structure.
Don’t burn forearms
Ovens are often fitted too high, which means that people can burn their forearms on the oven doors when they are open and hot. Steamers and microwave ovens should therefore be fitted above the conventional oven.
A hand towel can replace the drip tray
Drip trays ground into the stone are inflexible and use up the work area. Why not place a hand towel on the smooth work surface instead?
Let there be light – but no glare
Working areas need to be lit as well as possible, without creating glare or annoying shadows.
Cooker hoods provide fresh air
We differentiate between exhaust hoods and air circulation hoods. Exhaust systems carry off the air they suck in to the world outside, and they therefore need an exhaust outlet. Air circulation hoods clean the air through an activated carbon filter then blow it back into the room.
The right place for the dishwasher
Building the dishwasher into the units at a higher level makes it possible to put the dishes into the basket at a more comfortable, upright height, without having to bend unnecessarily.
