Built-In Appliances

Which is the importance of these appliances in the kitchen?

Designing and manufacturing of kitchen furniture is only one of the stages of creation of ideal and functional kitchen! The choice of reliable household appliances is a very significant factor, because it should be harmoniously combined with the kitchen set and provide comfort and beauty. Such built-in appliances brings convenience in daily life (increasing the space of working surfaces) and a wide functionality! Fortunately, the manufacturers offer nowadays a wide choice of built-in household appliances, which perfectly fits into any kitchen furniture by style, design, color and dimensions. Thus, it is possible to customize the appliances according to the interior design.

What should be taken into account?

When developing the design of the kitchen set, it is important to ensure not only the correct arrangement of kitchen boxes, but also the arrangement of household appliances. When choosing the appliances, the area of ​​the kitchen space and the dimensions of the kitchen boxes should be primarily taken into account. (Each device has its own area). It is necessary to consider the availability of the proposed household appliances from the very beginning of the design, since each unit of appliances has its technical dimensions and structural features. Based on this information, it is easier to calculate such issues as: ease of use, free access to appliances, maintenance of the certain permissions for arrangement (relative to each other), creation of specially designed boxes or pencil boxes for the chosen appliances (since the dimensions of the furniture often depend on the dimensions of built-in appliances).

For further detail design of the project, you should provide the data on the chosen household appliances: title, model or technical dimensions. Manufacturing of furniture cannot be commenced until provision of such information to our designers. Information on technical dimensions is required for proper detail design of the furniture boxes, technical gaps and other configurations. It is not necessary to acquire equipment at the design stage, you can make you choice of household appliances in advance, record the model and provide this information to us. The appliance should be present just before the installation!

Advantages and disadvantages!

  1. Built-in household appliances do not take a single extra centimeter in your kitchen, thus saving you the space, which is often very little!
  2. Maximum absence of gaps and cracks reduces the likelihood of penetration of various dirt and drops of fat.
  3. The tight and reliable attachment to the furniture boxes reduces the noise level, and the vibrations are completely eliminated.
  4. Provide maximum ergonomics and convenience in your kitchen!
  5. Manufacturers provide a wide range of models, which allows choosing the more suitable products according to technical specifications, design, styling, color and price.

The only major disadvantage is the price. These appliances will cost significantly more than stand-alone appliances!

What kinds of built-in appliances are arranged in the kitchen?

Cooking surfaces

Huge and familiar stoves are now replaced by thin and compact cooking surfaces. The cooking surfaces are divided into different types: gas, electric, electric - induction or combined (electric and gas burners). The electric cooking surface is a glass-ceramic smooth panel that is equipped with a heat indicator, sensor or manual control and can be easily cleaned. The surfaces are distinguished by types of burners - halogen or induction.

Halogen burners heat up quickly by means of a high-temperature spiral, which is connected to a halogen lamp. The lamp itself acquires a red light and generates heat in large quantities. Easy-to-use, have many additional features, available at reasonable prices. Gorgeously fit into any kitchen set.

Induction - work as halogen burners, heat up quickly, but produce heat directly at the point of contact of the dishes with the surface, therefore only the bottom of the dishes is heated, and the surface remains cold throughout the cooking process. Such characteristics provide absolute safety in everyday use and consume less electric power. For more efficient heating on such a surface, the dishes should be made of enameling steel or cast iron, while the dishes made of glass or ceramics will not heat up at all.

There is a wide choice of cooking surfaces from all advanced manufacturers in the market of household appliances.

Dishwashers.

Installation of the dishwasher in the kitchen set becomes an integral part and very popular for comfort and convenience. These appliances are installed under the work surface or located in a column, thus closing the front side with facades, thereby becoming completely unnoticeable. Dimensions of the dishwasher are 45cm or 60cm. The dimensions of the appliances are chosen based on free space in the kitchen and the number of family members. The most optimal dimensions for small kitchens - 45cm.

The dishwasher elegantly fulfills its role in the kitchen by helping the owner save her time, and the result of the washed dishes will always be perfect!

Built-in refrigerators.

There is a huge assortment of refrigerators from modern manufacturers in the market of household appliances that are differing from each other by types, sizes and functionality.

The types of such units are divided into – built-in and stand-alone. A distinctive feature of these types of refrigerators - structural features. The main feature of the built-in refrigerator is that it does not have an external (facial) case, it is completely mounted in a specially designed furniture cabinet, and the facade of the furniture panel decor is hung on its front part thus allowing achieving the unified style of the kitchen. Stand-alone refrigerators, on the contrary, have their own style and coloring of the case, and can be installed in any accessible place.

Built-in refrigerators save space, are easy-to-use and have low noise backgrounds index (thanks to laminate panels that serve as a barrier that prevents noise penetration).

 

In most cases, built-in refrigerators do not differ from stand-alone refrigerators, they are also divided into chilling and freezing chambers, each has its own separate door.

It is worth noting that the full operation of the compressor of the built-in refrigerator will be achieved if the air circulation passes from the side of the rear wall of the box (in which there should be a certain space), and the warm air outlet will be arranged through the grate in the base. Otherwise, the refrigerator may be damaged.

Built-in hoods.

Any kitchen set need such an important tool as hood. The hood can be chosen according to preferences, open or closed type.

Open-type hoods, in addition to their main function, can serve as the additional stylistic element that harmoniously fits into the kitchen interior.

In case of built-in hoods, they are divided into extension-type or integral, which are completely hidden behind the laminate box.

Nowadays, the most popular hoods are built-in completely hidden hoods.

1) Types of such hoods allow saving space in the kitchen.

2) They are installed directly above the cooking surface and have their own illumination of the working area.

3) Their case is completely hidden behind the laminate box, only the working area and the control panel are visible, which are below.
4) They are universal for air exhaust, they work both in flowing and in circulation mode.

Carbon filters are used in the circulating mode, thus there is no need to connect to the ventilation system. This method is not very effective and requires the replacement of filters every 4-6 months.

The ventilation goffer is attached to the hood in case of flowing method, which goes out respectively to the shaft, and the exhaust air is replaced by the clean air. The efficiency of the work in this mode is very high.

The efficiency of the work depends not only on the power of the hood itself, but also on its correct connection and arrangement, and the correct dimensions and diameters of the connected goffer and shaft based on the technical configurations of the device. Comfortable distance of the hood above the cooking surface is not lower than 60-65 cm.

Such hoods are beautifully masked behind the facades, not disturbing the entire style of the kitchen
