Dreaming of a beautiful and functional kitchen, onwhich is convenient to cook and pleasant to relax? This effect can be achieved using built-in technology. How? We tell in this article Modern should be practical, ergonomic and, of course, beautiful - in general, a real "superhero". All these qualities are combined in built-in appliances, since both technical and aesthetic aspects of kitchen design largely depend on it. The main and, as a rule, the only fear in relation to built-in appliances is its price. Of course, “embedded” requires more capital investments than stand-alone counterparts, but, as marketing research shows, the popularity and sales of built-in appliances are steadily growing, which means that its functionality and wide range of products fully justify their cost. For those who still have doubts, we give 5 convincing reasons to fall in love with built-in appliances. No. 1.Fits into any style Of course, a large chrome refrigerator and metallic oven will look great in a modern minimalist or hi-tech style. But what should lovers of classical, country or vintage style do? Sacrifice stylistic unity for the right dishwasher and convenient stove top? Fortunately, today such dilemmas are solved quite simply - with the help of embedded technology. It allows you to assemble a complete set that suits you and at the same time not violate the aesthetically common style. All equipment is hidden behind facades, the color and style of which you can choose yourself. It can be classic, and modern, and Scandinavian, and the notorious modern style. No. 2.Makes space more ergonomic The main task of a modern kitchen is to make every centimeter of space functional, and every movement comfortable and effortless. Built-in appliances solve the problem of not only aesthetics, but also ergonomics. You can raise the oven to chest level so as not to bend over every time you use it, place all the appliances next to each other, or place the hob exactly where you need it: for example, build it into the kitchen island. No. 3.Allows you to save space When completing a kitchen, there is almost always a struggle for every centimeter, and built-in appliances can be an excellent help in this matter. Firstly, with its help, you can use the vertical axis to the maximum and place all the necessary equipment even in a very small kitchen by "lifting" it from the floor. Secondly, most often small kitchens stuffed with freestanding objects look extremely uncomfortable - built-in appliances form a neat and integral workspace, thereby avoiding the feeling of clutter. Alexandra Blagova, Sub-Zero & Wolf:- Many have formed a stereotype that built-in household appliances, especially American ones, are necessarily bulky equipment and are only suitable for country cottages, penthouses and other large spaces. In reality, built-in refrigerators, wine cabinets and other appliances may well be compact. So, in the line of Sub-Zero refrigerators there are both impressive American size standards (the width of one device can vary from 762 to 1 219 mm), and rather "slender" models 610 mm "in girth", and freezers and wine cabinets - even 457 mm. There are options for low wine cabinets or compact refrigerators in the form of drawers that fit perfectly under the countertop, in the island part of the kitchen, and in general anywhere in the house. And the Wolf brand, in turn, can offer compact built-in modules, the so-called dominoes, with a width of only 38 cm. Among them there are hobs (gas and induction), and Wok, and a grill, teppan, a double boiler. Just recently, at the Eurocucina exhibition in Milan, a European line of appliances (60 cm wide) was presented, among which, for example, there is an oven with a height of only 45 cm. So there is a place to roam about in matters of built-in appliances: you can combine appliances for every taste and specific needs and equip even a small kitchen with maximum functionality. No. 4.Simplifies cleaning A clean kitchen is not only an aesthetic requirement, but also a safety issue for food preparation. Built-in equipment greatly simplifies the process: if the installation is done correctly, then there will be no gaps between the equipment and the facades, which means that dirt, dust and bacteria will simply have nowhere to accumulate. And a single work surface is much easier to clean than one where there are joints and gaps in which crumbs, drops of grease and dirt are collected. No. 5.Makes the interior whole No matter what style your kitchen is made in - built-in appliances make the environment more cohesive and visually harmonious. This is especially important for small spaces, where the more elements catch the eye, the closer the room seems. Also, the appliances hidden behind the facades make any kitchen more comfortable, giving it the feeling of a living space, where it is pleasant not only to cook, but also to spend time. Alexandra Blagova, Sub-Zero & Wolf:- Now for us built-in appliances are a self-evident phenomenon in the interior. Back in the 1950s, Sub-Zero founder Vesti Bakke was a pioneer in the development of embedded equipment. It was he who came up with the first refrigerator that could be integrated into a niche in a furniture set. For those times, on the approach of a technological boom, this format was an absolute innovation and radically changed the idea of \ u200b \ u200bthe possibilities of technology in design. And later, Sub-Zero came up with a refrigerator that can not only be built in, but also completely "dissolved" in the interior by hanging a furniture facade on the door. And then "off we go" - and now we can implement and even hide any device in any room in the house, come up with combinations in any format, combine equipment like a designer, in terms of functional and visual characteristics, and the design will only win ... In addition, thanks to the possibility of full integration into furniture, "kitchen appliances" have long gone beyond their limits. So, wine cabinets can be built in the office or dining room, refrigerators - on the terrace or in the bedroom, coffee centers - in the guest room, and heating cabinets - in the bathroom (some install them to dry towels).
