Why a kitchenette when you can have two? Two-line kitchens are very practical in terms of space utilization and storage space. After all, the two kitchen units offer more storage and work space and of course more kitchen cabinets, to be precise, twice as many.
In a two-line kitchen, the two kitchen lines are often opposite one another. Two-row kitchens are particularly suitable for rectangular floor plans with windows and doors on the opposite, narrow sides. The two kitchen lines can be used flexibly, for example the lines can also be placed on two adjacent walls. In contrast to the corner kitchen, the two kitchen units are not connected to each other. There is no continuous kitchen work surface between the two kitchen units. The two kitchen lines are often the same size, but they can also be very different, depending on the nature of the room, a two-line kitchen can be flexibly adapted. The two-row kitchen is particularly popular with those starting up a household and can be found in many student apartments, for example, and is easy to set up.
Planning a two-row kitchen is particularly suitable if you want to place kitchen units on two walls in a rectangular room, while a window, a radiator and a door have to be left out on the sides, for example. The double-row kitchen offers the optimal solution, because the shortcoming of the interruption is hidden by the individual kitchen design of the two kitchen rows. A two-line kitchen can be stylishly furnished and offers practical advantages as the space is used perfectly.
When planning, short journeys to work should be taken into account so that everyday use of the kitchen is fun and does not lead to long journeys. Depending on where the connections for water, electricity or gas are located, the devices are arranged on one side, which are then often used as storage space and storage space. In the storage area, there are refrigerators, dishwashers and tall cabinets, because these are used to store dishes and food. On the other hand, the cabinets and work surface are planned where the work area of the kitchen is. The work area contains the sink, hob and workstation, all of which are required for cooking. This arrangement guarantees that you can work comfortably in your kitchen.
If the kitchen units are facing each other, it is important that your kitchen has a room width of at least two feet. When the kitchen cabinets are set up, there should still be a minimum clearance of 1.20m. After all, drawers and doors should continue to be opened without any problems. In addition, loading and unloading the dishwasher is easier by hand. If there is enough space, a traditional table can be placed in the middle, where you can eat together or prepare the dishes.
A two-line variant can also convince in open-plan kitchens, as the living area is visually delimited by the kitchen units, which are used either as room dividers or as a kitchen island.
In a two-row kitchen, there is often little space for a dining table, especially when the kitchen units are opposite one another. A suitable variant for a dining table could be if the two-row kitchen is planned around a corner. In this case, a kitchenette is on a long wall and a kitchenette is planned on the short wall, but there is no continuous worktop. Alternatively, the second kitchenette can also be used as a dining table. The room is divided into a cooking area and a living area.
With one more kitchenette, a one-row kitchen becomes not just a two-row kitchen, but a kitchen that makes everyday use much more effective and easier. The additional line enables an effective division of the zones. For example, there can be a kitchenette for supplies and one for preparation and cooking. With the right planning, the two-row kitchen becomes a real miracle of efficiency, because the kitchen impresses with short distances and relaxed work. A two-row kitchen can be flexibly adapted to the room. Parallel work areas can also be created so that several people can chop and prepare in the kitchen. The effective use of the kitchen and the flexible planning are great advantages of the two-line kitchen. With a two-row kitchen you get a lot of storage space and work surface. Kitchen electrical appliances can be stowed away easily and no longer have to be placed on the work surface. This leaves more space to work in the kitchen.
In addition, the two-line kitchen guarantees double the fun when preparing and cooking. Whether for couples, singles or families, a two-line kitchen is suitable for every household. While the walking routes in a one-row kitchen often overlap, the preparatory activities can be better divided up in a two-row kitchen. Because in a two-line kitchen you can prepare the food with your partner or friends without any problems and without getting in your way.
If the two rows are opposite each other, or too far apart, or too close to each other, the two-row kitchen has disadvantages. In the first case, the walking distances are lengthened, which makes kitchen work tiring and cumbersome. In the second case, the drawers and doors can no longer be opened, which is particularly noticeable when you cook with two people.
If your kitchen is a narrow, elongated room, there may be little or no space for a dining table. In general, the two-row kitchen has less storage space than a U-kitchen or a G-kitchen. The two-row kitchen is not always the perfect solution for families with children.
In addition, the two-row kitchen is usually more expensive than a simple kitchenette, which does not make it the cheapest planning option.
With a two-line kitchen, you have to expect a low to medium budget. Even if the two-line kitchen is more expensive than a single-line kitchen, the two-line kitchen offers the perfect balance between cost and flexibility.
A two-row kitchen offers plenty of storage space, can be planned flexibly and can be used by a team. With the choice of your favorite front and worktop, you can turn your kitchen into a stylish oasis of well-being where everyone likes to be.
