Each element in the room plays an important role. Furniture should be harmonized with finishing and other decorative elements. The list of recommended and practical ideas is.

Features Headset and Choice
Finished kitchen headsets are represented by modern producers in a huge assortment. This gives not only vast freedom of choice, and also prevents inexperienced buyers to make the right choice. Small kitchen sets must successfully combine practicality, compactness and stylish appearance. Designs are designed to perform maximum functions based on limited space. Manufacturers use spacious shelves, drawers and other convenient mechanisms.
As for the appearance, it is better to make a choice in favor of minimalism in a soft, pastel color. This is the most universal and common option that can be found in any furniture store, however, other stylistic ideas will also fit. Also, furniture for “Khrushchev” and other items on the territory of the room must have multitasking (perform several tasks at the same time). For example, an enlarged windowsill will be a comfortable and bright place to eat food, and a stylish machine, mounted in a closet, will exceed the role of the base of the working surface.
The presence of retractable baskets allows you to place inside the kitchen cabinets a large number of necessary items. Due to the convenient and practical mechanism, the user can fully extend it from the cabinet and, pulling the right thing, hide the device inside. Depending on the model headset, baskets may have different shape and sizes. Some species are equipped with practical holders and additional cavity to accommodate table items and other useful trivia.
This is a wonderful solution for storing the necessary things in a small kitchen. You can find furniture with double basket. They are bonded between themselves, at the expense of what when opening the door of the cabinet, one basket pulls out a friend. Developing this device, it became possible to use empty and long-range corners of the headset with efficiency.
These are special attachments that are attached to the wall under the working surface, sink or stove. Their destination is the placement of various things that are often needed when working in the kitchen, at hand. Typically, railway systems are used to accommodate the following things: towels, cutlery, tacks, jars with seasonings and other accessories (blades, whites and more). Frames occupy a place on a vertical plane, thereby freeing the space on the surfaces, shelves and in the cabinets. The most common accommodation option is apron, however, they can be attached to the bottom of the mounted cabinets.
Special shelves with spinning mechanism call carousel. This idea began to be used in the development of kitchen heads relatively recently, however, it has already managed to become popular. A practical regiment that has the opportunity to turn around its axis will provide quick access from the right thing. As a rule, such systems are placed inside the cabinets installed on the floor.
The system allows you to place the dishes of large sizes without any problems, as well as food and other.
Compact sizes and shape
One of the basic requirements when choosing a kitchen headset, as well as the design of a small room – compactness. On the basis of “Khrushchev” often installed mounted facades, especially if it is equipped with glass inserts. Such furniture creates a positive visual effect. As for the form of furniture, there will be a winning option. It is better to abandon options with volumetric decorative elements, large handles, carved patterns and other. Furniture with protrusions will occupy and without that very limited space. Be sure to consider all these recommendations when choosing a finished headset for your kitchen.
Method of placement We provide for the connection of two workers, horizontal surfaces on adjacent walls. This technique often use even on the basis of spacious residential premises due to convenience and ergonomics. The room is divided into two separate zones. As a rule, one of them is used for cooking, and the other as a dining. But if there is a place to accommodate the table, both zones can become workers. The second zone can be supplemented with a small folding table. With this design of the room in the table, you can turn into a modified windowsill.
By the title it is easy to guess that in this case the headset and household appliances are placed along three walls. Experts recommend installing a rack with a sink by the window, for natural lighting of this zone. This option is more suitable if you need to place a large amount and home appliance in the room (washing machine, apparatus for washing dishes, oven). Equipment is placed in the wardrobe niches.
When designing a kitchen with a washing machine, it is recommended to install it closer to the sink to simplify the process of connecting in the water supply system. This also applies to dishwashing machines.
If you rarely use a brass oven for cooking, it is better to install a cooking plate separately instead of stove. Free space under it you can use to store the necessary things. As a rule, it is placed close to the sink, on the territory of one working surface. When choosing equipment, pay attention to the combined devices that combine the functions of several devices at the same time. You can find a microwave with a built-in toaster or a brave cabinet combining an electric furnace and grill.
