When choosing a dining table, you need to pay attention to its shape. Standard rectangular, square shapes in Khrushchev will not be appropriate.

Such furniture creates the effect of weightlessness, it practically dissolves against the background of light walls. Compact chairs will be needed for the table. Do not buy bulky items. It is better to give preference to low chairs without a back. Sometimes a classic dining table can be replaced by a bar counter. This is a great solution for modern styles!

Disguise of a geyser

Often, the design of the kitchen in Khrushchev spoils a massive geyser. There are several ways to solve this problem. The most effective of them, their advantages, disadvantages are considered in the table:

The method of masking a gas column Advantages disadvantages
Move column to corridor This is a radical solution for a very small kitchen. It will significantly increase the working space. However, there is a significant minus of the method - a time-consuming, not always possible transfer process. To transfer equipment, you need to obtain the consent of certain authorities. Consent can only really be obtained if there is a wide corridor with a high ceiling, ventilation duct, chimney, main wall. You can not move the column in every apartment.
Room Transfer If there are no conditions for transferring to the corridor, you can transfer it within the room. This solution will allow you to install the device in the most invisible place. The transfer will also need to be legalized.
Embedding in furniture Embedding a speaker in a cabinet is the easiest, cheapest solution. Behind the facade, the appliance is invisible. He will not be able to spoil the overall "picture". But there is a significant drawback of this method - its illegality. In many cities, embedding a column is prohibited anywhere. Therefore, before the installation, it is necessary to develop a plan, consult with the gas service.
Purchase of a white headset, wall cabinets It is easy to mask the column with the selection of white furniture. Then the column will simply "merge" with the facades, will not attract too much attention.
Column painting White furniture is a very brand. If there is no desire to buy a facade in the color of the column, you can paint the device itself. Staining can be done by almost anyone.

Calm atmosphere, bright colors may not appeal to all people. If the owners like a bright environment, you need to look for another solution. Using contrasting colors in excess is prohibited. They will reduce the space, make it uncomfortable. Color accents and elements will help to dilute a boring design. In bright colors, you can make a countertop, chairs, some parts of the facade.

  3. Refuse unnecessary equipment. Today, there are many technical innovations that make life easier. But not all technology is often used in real life. Excess equipment will only “steal” the place. Carefully analyze the life of your family, buy only the most necessary equipment.
  4. Organize good lighting. Space, light - the main features of the style of minimalism. There should be a lot of lighting. In small kitchens, windows are usually small. They cannot provide enough light. Artificial sources must be connected to natural light. The ideal option is to install spotlights. They should be correctly distributed among the zones.
  5. In minimalism, practically no decor is used. It is worth abandoning beautiful utensils for display, various statuettes, paintings. You can decorate the room with green spaces, an extraordinary clock on the wall.
