Post from Editorials

Thanks to the kitchen columns you gain space to store objects in your kitchen, on the other hand you lose the support surface. Here's how to design and choose your kitchen without giving up both.

How to design a kitchen with columns

Of all the rooms of the house, the kitchen is the most delicate and complex room and the most difficult to furnish.

If you want a functional and comfortable kitchen you must focus on an accurate design and, more importantly, you have to analize the needs of those who will use it on a daily basis, of their way of living the house and their lifestyle.

Functionality and practicality are linked to the principles of ergonomics, a science that studies the interaction between man and his space, but we know how even the eye wants its part and that an environment it is comfortable and pleasant to live also thanks to its aesthetic qualities.

Precisely for this reason, in a modern kitchen, whatever the style is, attention to design with its shapes, colors and materials is of essential importance.

A well-organized kitchen must also be designed by correctly evaluating all spaces, not only those related to food preparation but also those for the storage of utensils, dishes and provisions.


Kitchen with columns to save space and keep everything in order

The kitchen column cabinet is one of the distinctive elements of a modern kitchen where the wall units, or at least part of them, are often replaced by tall cabinets capable of containing anything inside them.

Appliances, pantries, drawer units, pull-out shelves, organized compartments and shelves equipped to organize kitchen utensils and accessories for cleaning the house.

Everything finds its place in the kitchen column hidden by concealed, hinged, folding or sliding doors and, once closed, the environment will be perfectly tidy and in line with a modern and essential style.

There is never enough space at home, but this is actually more true when it comes to the kitchen and a kitchen with columns offers more than a kitchen with base units and wall units, also because these models have the depth of a base, i.e. about 60 cm, whereas a wall unit generally has a depth of 35-40 cm.


Modern kitchen furniture: the pull-out kitchen column


A kitchen equipped with wardrobes will have tidier and better organized spaces, but also easily accessible thanks to modern systems that allow you to comfortably enjoy even the most inaccessible rooms.

The pull-out kitchen column modules by STOSA Cucine are equipped with internal accessories that make even the most difficult to reach corners accessible, allowing you to make the most of any internal space by optimizing the overall dimensions.

The pull-out kitchen column can measure from 15 to 60 cm depending on the different space requirements. The 30 cm wide version has an internal column rotation system.

The Fly Moon pull-out system for linear corner kitchen column by BOFFI, with hinged door, is equipped with special shelves that perform a rotation movement with total extraction. The mechanism includes 4 elements equipped with a small metal perimeter railing and a melamine panel bottom.

The corner module is one of the critical points in the kitchen and these systems allow you to use it to the fullest.


Kitchen with columns: pros and cons


While the kitchen column module allows you to save space for storing everything, it effectively eliminates the space intended for the operating surface, that is the support surface, which is also a precious resource in the kitchen.


Some kitchen models have something similar that can be pulled out from inside the column, but it is certainly not the same thing; having a fixed and always available hob, not only for the operating unit of the sink and hob, is essential for the kitchen to be comfortable and functional.

The typical composition of a modern kitchen includes the combination of tall cabinets with the island equipped with sink and hob.
If the living area is an open space this one is a particularly valid solution, also from an aesthetic point of view, when the need to choose a kitchen arises.

It's almost necessary, in that case, to have the ability to hide utensils, dishes and appliances from your guests, to give a greater sense of order to the space and greater stylistic coherence between the various furnishing elements in the living area.


Kitchen with columns: home appliances

It will also be possible, depending on the planimetric configuration of the kitchen, to find the right balance between countertops and storage space without completely renouncing the wall units and perhaps providing only some kitchen column modules, for example to be used as a pantry or home appliances.

The kitchen column modules, at least in an in-line configuration, are usually positioned on the sidesto give symmetry to the composition and to leave more space for the worktop.

The kitchen column block is particularly suitable for containing electrical appliances, especially the refrigerator column and the oven column, where it is possible to decide whether or not to have the appliances built-in visible or hidden behind the doors.

While the refrigerator is often recessed and hidden by the doors, the oven or the two ovens are generally visible in the furnace column cabinet to make it more easier.

It must be placed in a comfortable position that allows it to be used without bending over.


Some kitchen models with cupboards


The First kitchen by SNAIDERO, which you can see in the paragraph above, is part of the Everyone collection, an affordable contemporary line designed for young customers, with an informal lifestyle but who do not want to give up a product quality.

Elegant and essential, the Aria model by Febal Casa is born from the fusion of clean geometric lines and is characterized by the refinement of details, first of all the handle on the top of the door.

Scavolini has created LiberaMente, a model with a unique style and a sophisticated blend of colors and high quality materials, which are in fact the protagonists of a kitchen with tall units with multiple design and compositional potentials.

In the Ri-Flex model by Veneta Cucine, the glass manifests all its expressive force giving life to different chromatic solutions depending on the matt or glossy finish and characterizing this sophisticated and functional line.
