If you notice that you want to be in the kitchen less often, then, most likely, it's the kitchenette, the arrangement of furniture and the elements that are very lacking.
What signs can indicate that you need to change or modernize in the kitchen? There are several of them, they are not very obvious, therefore, not everyone draws attention to such inconvenience and for years has suffered discomfort.
Let's look at them, and you decide for yourself: is this the reason that you did not get a nice kitchen or something else. If all the same, such moments are present, then we'll tell you in passing how to deal with this with minimal losses.
- 1 1 symptom - tightness and endless corners
- 2 2 sign - you have accumulated too many dishes
- 3 3 sign - you are bored in the kitchen for a long time to cook, because there is no TV
- 4 4 sign - furniture has to be washed too often
- 5 5 sign - the kitchen does not want to be photographed

1 symptom - tightness and endless corners
How often do owners of small kitchens, in apartments, such as "Khrushchev", admit a typical mistake - they overload the space with elements.
For example, somehow they manage to build a n-shaped kitchen on 6 squares, or, instead of a small dining area, they put a huge table and chairs, or they do not calculate the scope of the opening upper boxes, and then they do not let them pass or even beat on the forehead.
If you have such a problem, it is worth considering how this inconvenience is eliminated. The easiest way is if the dining table interferes with the normal movement: carried it, replaced it with something more compact and everything.
But if things are in the kitchen furniture, then it's worse. But even in this case, there are two degrees of "gravity". If the top boxes interfere, they can simply be removed and instead of them put beautiful, open shelves.
This option is very popular in Europe, although for us it seems unusual. In fact, there are not so many things in the kitchen to hide them in endless closed boxes.
For example, the same cereals can be stored not in cellophane bags, but in special glass containers that look great on an open shelf.
The same goes for the dishes: if it is beautiful, then why close it? Where better to put it in sight, and it will be an additional element of design. So, as you can see, the problem of unsuccessfully located top boxes is solved.
And what should we do if we did not calculate the configuration of the lower tier? Here, unfortunately, you will have to completely change the headset. You can, of course, try it somehow to modernize, remove some doors, but it is unlikely that you will get something path and one-piece.
2 sign - you have accumulated too many dishes
If the family has increased, and the kitchen space under it is not calculated, the first thing that begins to irritate wildly is the lack of a dishwasher.
When you were two or three in the family, the dishes did not cause any trouble and you, of course, put the headset, not designed for its subsequent installation.
But now it's time to think about the acquisition of such a useful thing, because, the mountains of dirty dishes and, in fact, suppress and steal a lot of time.
How can I install a machine, if you do not have money to replace the entire headset, and put it somewhere separately - do not you want to?
We can offer you the simplest way - changing the countertop and eliminating some block of drawers of the lower tier. In principle, the table top can also not be changed, but simply cut and sent to the workshop, so that it is decorated and sealed side cuts.
3 sign - you are bored in the kitchen for a long time to cook, because there is no TV
The TV is a good thing in the kitchen. But it, for some reason, is taken into account at the very last turn and when one remembers, it turns out that there is no convenient place for it - it is occupied by furniture or shelves.
Then the TV "mold" in the most improper place, for example, damn those where upstairs, above the door, let's say or on the fridge. In the end, it's very uncomfortable to tear your head up and turn on the TV - it makes no sense. Here he hangs for years, collects dust - and cook in the kitchen - still boring and stay there reluctance.
If you have such a case, it is highly recommended that you reconsider your attitude to the arrangement of kitchen furniture. Sometimes it is enough to remove some unnecessary drawer to make room and the TV will find a convenient location.
4 sign - furniture has to be washed too often
The unsuccessful choice of the facade of the kitchen is just a disaster. And it's not even in color, but in the texture and quality of the coating. Some doors are very difficult to wash, for example, the same painted MDF.
Bright juice or other coloring products have a property to be absorbed into the surface, and they must be wiped instantly, otherwise it will be difficult to get rid of them. Rather, they are somehow laundered, but it is already difficult and it is necessary to rub the paint strongly, why it is erased.
If at you such case - do not pull and simply change facades. They can be ordered separately from everything, therefore, on a pocket it will not strike strongly essentially. Agree, it is better to spend some money, but to ensure a quiet cooking without feverish rubbing of sweats and sprays.
If the facade is normal, then you can dispose of your time - as you like and postpone cleaning the next day. And in the case of dyed MDF - you need to do everything at once.
Also, very bad facades, on which the slightest spots from the fingers are visible. Glossy boxes are very good, but they must also be constantly rubbed, otherwise they look neglected and careless. Sometimes, because of this brand of cuisine, and do not want to cook, because you imagine that now all this has to be washed.
5 sign - the kitchen does not want to be photographed
Well this is perhaps the most obvious sign that your kitchen is so morally obsolete that it is embarrassing to show it to friends in Odnoklassniki. If even, during some gatherings, you move to another room for a photo, then think about changing the headset.
In the end, on how your kitchen is made, how modern it is, depends also on the mood of the hostess who cooks dinner.
And since, it is necessary to cook exclusively in a good mood, then provide yourself with it, with the help of a new headset, which will please the eye.
6 sign - the kitchen just crumbles in the eyes
About this, one could and did not write, of course, since, this is not a sign, but just a cry "Change me!". But all the same, for the sake of order we will take this into account. If the facades are swollen, the table top is wiped off, the mixer flows, then the headset has expired and it's time to save for another.
Of course, you can try to repair the kitchen furniture, but it will not always work out if it is already very old.
Replacement of facades and countertops, in this case, will not help much, since the box itself can be shattered. The fixtures that hold the doors are also loose. Therefore, properly calculate whether it makes sense to restore or easier to order a new set.
