The island: the ideal kitchen for authentic chefs

Another type of kitchen that is really popular, especially for those who are authentic chefs at heart, is the island kitchen. The only catch is that this kitchen can only be installed in large rooms in which the cooking area then becomes the focus of the whole layout.

When planning this kitchen, particular attention should be paid to the utility systems that should ideally all be located under a baseboard above which a false ceiling should be built for the cooker hood.

If you are furnishing a new home or looking for a renovation idea, one of the most important areas to focus on is the kitchenette. How can you plan your kitchen to suit the space available?

There are basically three choices when planning a kitchen: the traditional back-to-wall kitchen and the island and peninsula kitchens.

Which suits you best?

The traditional back-to-wall kitchen

This is a great classic and is the easiest to plan. There are various layout options that depend on the space available in your room: it can run along a single wall or be L-shaped.

This type of kitchen will contain all the kitchen appliances required including the sink, worktops and cupboards installed along a single wall (or along two for the L-shaped version).

This is the perfect solution for a small flat because it combines a kitchenette and a living room area in the same room.

But even if space is at a premium you can still hide the kitchen by adding sliding partitions or doors to create a sort of fake cupboard.

Another interesting space-saving idea is to choose a pellet or wood range cooker: which provides a hotplate, an oven and an appliance to heat the whole living room area, all in a very small space. Come and check out all Palazzetti’s pellet or wood range cookers here!

How to plan a peninsula kitchen

Currently, one of the most fashionable kitchens is definitely the peninsula one, suitable for an average-sized or moderately large kitchen.

For those who meet these requirements, this kitchen is a favourite because it lets you organise spaces very efficiently. For optimal space organisation, it will be important to distribute the cooking areas in the centre with the sink area adjacent to them.
