A lot of natural light in the rooms, especially in the kitchen, is always good. However, the rooms designed in this way have their own characteristics.
In this article we will talk about how to equip a kitchen with two windows on different walls in a cottage and in a private house: as usual, tips and illustrations with photos are at your service!
Features of the layout
Most often under the apertures, door and window, only two walls are used. In this case, problems with where to arrange furniture and household appliances does not arise. If three are involved at once, then questions arise.
- The placement of such a configuration requires good heating, since the glass and plastic give off heat;
- The area under the windows should be used rationally - under the working surfaces;
- Try to minimize the number of hanging cabinets;
- Try not to put a refrigerator and big furniture near the openings.
As you can see, if you think carefully, then all the nuances are solved. How does it look in practice? Now we will see.
In the interior
The most common method is to place a long corner set directly along the walls with windows. This solution makes sense not only in terms of configuration: a large amount of light above the work surface facilitates the cooking process.
note: The sink is located directly under the window. It is convenient and practical - when washing dishes are visible all the dirt.
If the room is large enough, install a kitchen island. This is an additional surface, and an excellent storage for all kinds of small things and stocks of bulk products.
By the way, take a closer look at the kitchen corner - it also hides in itself boxes, which are often not enough even in the largest kitchens. It will become a worthy alternative to a standard sofa.
Important point: Sometimes light becomes too much, especially on the south side of the house. Therefore, we advise you to take the curtains tight. In our opinion, the ideal option - roll - they are easy to raise or lower if necessary.
The U-shaped set is suitable if you need to use the smallest area with two windows as efficiently as possible. Place the plate with the refrigerator closer to the door, and place a small locker between the apertures. This design is convenient and practical.
If we talk about stylistic solutions, then ideally suited. It requires a lot of light, and the pastel scale of this cuisine will make it beautiful and cozy.
We advise you to place the dining area near a solid wall, and place a window under the window for the working surface.
Not always in a private house make large windows - some like imitation of narrow medieval loopholes. Harmoniously to enter into the interior of their more difficult, and certainly the presence of powerful artificial lighting.
If you like that design, carefully design the kitchen design. In our opinion, it looks best in classical design.
A good idea: For the dining area, it is not necessary to buy a separate table. His role can perfectly fulfill the kitchen island with a sliding panel. Another example of such unified furniture is in this photo.
For a small kitchen in the country style it is important to understand where to place each desired element. We advise you to resort to the services of designers - they will tell you the best method. We like this option, where the headset is combined with a panel that plays the role of a table.
The rest of the necessary furniture and appliances should be placed along the opposite wall. Comfortable, stylish and beautiful.
The decoration in modern classical style requires special attention to detail. Refuse the blinds - this is more suitable for classic curtains in the floor with tulle curtains.
If the area allows, in addition to the kitchen and dining area, it is recommended to equip another one - for rest. Such a kitchen will become a favorite place for gatherings with the whole family.
Interesting reception: Add a cozy room will help an electric fireplace. To live fire in the premises many are cautious, besides, it requires a lot of attention. But his imitation is what you need.
If the windows are small and the house faces the north side, it is not necessary to cover them with curtains. Put some decoration - so the interior will get a modern and trendy look. Now there are real flowers in the trend. Why not?
But in the kitchen baroque without them can not do. If you like luxurious interiors with patina, gilding and vintage elements, choose the appropriate drapes. Best suited are heavy natural fabrics with brushes, fringes and other decorative elements.
If the kitchen does not differ large dimensions, the corner L-shaped set will help. It is very roomy, so you can easily hide all the necessary items. To visually increase the space, choose light shades - for example, white and blue, as in this photo.
Are the windows on one wall? Use symmetry. It is not only fashionable and beautiful. So the room looks neater, but you do not need to bother with additional decorations - the main thing is to properly arrange window openings.
Unusual reception is used in this photo. Along three walls, one of which - with windows, is almost all furniture. In the center is a kitchen island, which combines several functions: a bar, additional cabinets and, quite unexpectedly, a kitchen sink.
If the windows are multi-format, use them for zoning. Under the smaller place the working area, and under the large - a window sill with cushions, on which it is comfortable to sit with a book and tea.
Or just make one window a solid glass, and the second - in the French style. Simple, but stylish.
As you can see, for a kitchen with two windows there are a lot of interesting design solutions. All that is needed from you is to take into account the peculiarities of the room configuration when creating a design project. In the rest, rely on your taste - you can decorate such an interior in any style.
