Secrets of an ergonomic space
Furniture in light colors
• For a small kitchen, it is better to choose furniture made in light colors. Dark color creates a cluttered feel.
• Convertible chairs and compact stools are also appropriate in the kitchenette.
• It is also good to use clear plastic (glass) furniture to make the interior lighter.
• It is worth remembering that in the pursuit of saving square meters, one should not forget about convenience. Structures and chairs must be suitable in height and width.
• Sitting down at the table, the owner of the kitchen should not feel discomfort. Legs should be at right angles to the floor.
• If there are children in the house, they should not have difficulty moving stools (chairs).
