Plan kitchen, bathroom with a balcony, allowing (sometimes significantly) to expand the kitchen space and adds a number of unique options for the design of typical apartments. Leaving aside the question of legalization of this action, talk only about the features layout and design of such facilities.  

1. Kitchen design, combined with a loggia in an apartment.
The total space of the balcony and the kitchen provides many new features in the interior NCCA plays. If initially you had 2 separate rooms, after combining them, you get one. However, the architecture of the building itself (even after redevelopment) will dictate pronounced zoning, due to their primary purpose. And it must take into account in its design. Points that require special attention:

  • Drop in floor levels
  • Different ceiling height
  • The increased area of ​​glazing
  • The presence / absence of communications (heating, sewerage, etc.)

When designing a kitchen, a loggia, you can either try to neutralize the existing zoning, or emphasize its opposite - both methods are practiced, and it depends upon personal preference and taste.

In the photo above it looks quite a loggia organic extension of the kitchen, making it a single space, and transformed into a dining table on the ground photo division specifically emphasized the arch and piers:

Exit from the kitchen to the lodge can be arranged in the form of an arch, this approach allows you to save the "native" size of the opening in the bearing wall. If it is sometimes necessary to isolate connected to the loggia the kitchen, they can quickly be divided by an arch using curtains as in the first photo.
When planning, try to keep all the utilities in the old places, and the deaf loggia walls used for additional storage space. Do not transfer to the lodge stove, sink, hood and a central heating radiator!  Such a transfer requires a lot of coordination and is combined with a kitchen loggia, unlike moved completely rarely needs such radical change!
If you want to place there the refrigerator, do not forget about the "triangle rule" , the size of which is important to observe. However, if you have a second refrigerator or a chest freezer, the loggia for them a good place.

2. Kitchen, united with warm balcony.
One should always remember that the lodge has two deaf sidewalls and glazed balcony on three sides, so united with a balcony kitchen usually has a pronounced zoning regulated. Often glassed space is convenient as a dining area, many left the pier, turning it into the bar:

Differences in gender / ceiling to highlight areas levels are rather a plus, since it allows to reinforce the impression, but can ruin the interior of a small kitchen with a balcony because of heaps of parts and inconvenience of transportation. In small spaces, try to plan the floor at the same level, and cumbersome and rarely used items keep on the balcony, which is necessary to allocate a special storage space in the form of cabinets or open shelves.

The kitchen with a balcony, with a larger window area by combining space, requires more attention to them. Try to avoid the standard offerings, pick something interesting, with unique decor elements, but corresponding to the chosen style of the room. For example, in the network there are kitchen design with a balcony in a rustic style with fashionable panoramic glazing - it looks funny. It is better to choose trivial glazing, which can be unikalizirovat careful selection of curtains or blinds.

We should also be said about the heating. Many "internet experts" reprint each other's stupidity, that is combined with a balcony kitchen space warmer than usual. It is not true! In rare cases, when (before redevelopment) in humans were old leaky windows and thin wall street windswept, application of modern double-glazed windows and insulation reduced the total heat loss of the kitchen. But initially I hope it is not prudent, because the heat loss through windows is always higher than the main walls and the balcony before the merger with kitchen Gazebo space worked as an insulating gateway. Therefore, consider the need for additional heating during the planning and design, for which we can take a variety of underfloor heating or electric heaters (central heating does not use the default). In this case, as in the case of windows, it is important to consider not only thermal performance, but also to match the appearance of the instrument with the general style of the room. Modern Kitchen interior with balcony (loft, modern, hi-tech, and the like) does not cause problems, but in severe cases (Provence, art deco, etc.) should look at the ceiling infrared panels and the heating baseboards that are hidden systems and not an eyesore.

Kitchen with access to the balcony has a hidden decorative and functional capabilities. After combining the kitchen with a balcony or loggia - a great way to optimize space, which allows you to:

Kitchen Design and loggias

  • If you remove the only window that permits will not need clearance, but will have to return the window and the door to its original place in the sale of apartments;
  • If, however, completely dismantled the entire wall, you will need the approval of a new plan by the relevant authorities;

Combining the kitchen with a loggia

  • Load-bearing walls can not clean at all - and the resolution in this case can not be obtained. For example, in a panel building load-bearing walls - it's construction, more than 120-140 mm thick. For other values ​​of a brick house - to carriers include those designs which are thicker than 3 brick (380 mm) in the monolithic - 200 mm;
  • Can not be transferred to the battery loggia central heating water.

Matching association balconies and kitchens

Keep in mind that even if the partition between the kitchen and balcony is not a carrier, it can not be demolished without permission. In no case do not make alterations without the consent - it is dangerous, not reasonable and not profitable. In case of violations (to identify them is not difficult) to the violator shall be imposed penalties and injunction lead cuisine in an original form. It is better not to consult in forums and on the internet, and direct from the BTI and the designer.

"Legalization" demolition of walls between the balcony and the kitchen - the theme is serious and requires more detailed disclosure in a separate article. And now let's talk about how to maximize the use of additional meters.
