The Valcucine equipped back section / accessories

// The equipped back section is a 20cm wide area inside which plumbing and electrical connections can be made, giving the interior designer freedom to install the sink and the hob at a certain distance from the positions imposed by the water and gas supply outlets. It becomes one with the top, and due to the fact that it is does not have seals, is easier to clean.

Which are easier to use? Base units with doors or with jumbo drawers?

A - Traditional base units with doors and shelves oblige you to kneel down and get into awkward positions (that in the long run may cause serious physical problems), to take or put away objects that are usually stored in an almost inaccessible corner or in a scarcely-lit area. B - With the pullout jumbo drawer, the entire contents of the base units is visible, more accessible and easy to reach.

Types of Kitchens

Accurate study of the morphology of the space to be furnished is decisive to choose the shape of the kitchen. The length of the wall, the position of doors and windows and the size of the room are all guides in choosing the type of kitchen that can be linear or double linear, C-shaped, U-shaped, with an island, with a peninsular unit, in a corner arrangement or in separate units.

The in-line kitchen on two sides

If the room is long but sufficiently wide, worktops and cabinets can be installed along both walls.

The corner kitchen

The elements are installed along two adjoining kitchen walls. The sink, the hob and the fridge must be relatively near to each other so as to reduce distances and make it easier to carry out various kitchen chores.

C-shaped kitchen

Allows you to optimise movements within the space marked off by the worktops. Sliding doors conceal the work area and make it possible to create an exclusive dining room.

The In-Line Kitchen

This is an efficient solution for long, narrow rooms. All the kitchen cabinets are installed along one wall and a space large enough to walk around in is left on the opposite side.
