Each kitchen area has its spaces and needs, so Cucine Lube offers you the possibility to customise the full range of models that can be manufactured with the composition that best suits you.

The U-shaped kitchen, otherwise known as the horseshoe kitchen, is an excellent solution in terms of ergonomics and practicality because everything is concentrated in one place and it is easier to cook, wash and clean. However, each unit must be placed with the utmost care to make sure that this boon does not turn into a bane. Poor positioning could lead to cramped spaces and an inability to open doors or drawers properly.

In a nutshell, a good U-shaped kitchen design means recreating the ideal work triangle. The three points of this triangle are formed by placing the range, sink and fridge on opposite sides. The cooktop and the sink must be kept quite close to each other so that pans of boiling water can be quickly transferred - but not too close, otherwise tap water might accidentally splatter onto sizzling oil and cause a hazard. The sink should ideally be kept underneath the window sill so that dishes can be washed in daylight. However, much depends on connections to the existing mains and plumbing.

The popularity of open spaces in home design means that peninsula solutions can be used to give a sense of separation between the sitting room and the kitchen, creating some spectacularly elegant settings.


How to choose the composition in the kitchen?

There are two main aspects that need to be taken into consideration: technical factors, such as the area of the room and the location of any gas and water supplies, and those purely personal factors, such as habits and tastes. You should not underestimate the work flows i.e. all the movements during daily operations (taking foodstuffs, cooking and washing) which need to be studied so as to be able to correctly position the elements in the kitchen and facilitate movement.

What are the advantages of an island kitchen?

In addition to a being particularly attractive, an island kitchen offers excellent space management and a larger working area, facilitating moments of conviviality and socialising. Furthermore, if you decide to place the hob on the island, you will avoid splashes on the wall and you can limit your cleaning to the counter area.

Why choose a kitchen with a peninsula?

A peninsula provides dynamism in a kitchen and is often used to separate the cooking corner from the living area. The counter increases the surface space and can conveniently be used as a snack area for breakfast or quick meals.

How is a “gulf” kitchen designed?

To design a “gulf” kitchen, also known as U-shaped or “horseshoe” kitchen, you need to take the ideal work triangle as your base mark, i.e. that triangle which is created by arranging the hob, sink and fridge on three different sides. It is a good idea for the first two elements to be positioned quite close together to facilitate everyday operations.

How is it best to arrange a corner-based kitchen?

So as to have a practical and functional kitchen, it is important to place the appliances, hob and sink as close as possible to each other, also positioning them in the corner of the composition. You can also make the most of the corner to organise kitchenware and foodstuffs, by installing pull-out mechanisms inside the base unit allowing you to access items at the back of the storage compartments.

What are the advantages of a corner-based kitchen?

There are several advantages to a corner-based composition: it allows you to make best use of limited space; it creates a functional, airy setting (with the inclusion of open storage spaces and shelves) and uses the existing water and gas systems, without needing additional work.

When is it best to choose a linear kitchen?

A linear model is particularly suitable for those who have a long, narrow space to furnish, especially in one-room flats where it is essential to fit the kitchen into the living area. It is also a good solution for large rooms; one idea might be to divide the composition into two blocks arranged on two different walls.
