Kitchens with gas boiler: design

The presence of a gas boiler in the kitchen can complicate the future design of the interior design. And all because of its structural features. Every owner of an apartment or house wants to see a stylish and modern kitchen after repair, in which all the details look organic. The design of the kitchen with a boiler implies a competent masking of the outgoing pipes and the chimney. In addition, the heater should fit into the furniture profile, and wall decoration in the adjacent area should be done deliberately in compliance with elementary safety standards. It is especially difficult to think of a suitable design in an apartment with small kitchens.

How to think over the design of a kitchen with a boiler

The rules of technical fire operation, suggest the installation of heating structures in furniture products.

In addition, it is necessary to protect the walls and adjoining cabinets from heating with special shielding inserts that prevent spontaneous combustion.

Parameters for installing a gas boiler in a furniture set

If the flow column is hidden behind the curtain wall, the following rules must first be observed:

  1. The masking cabinet must be at least 6 mm wider than the heater.
  2. It is forbidden to make a camouflage module with a rear wall and upper / lower covers.

That is, a camouflage cabinet will look like a furniture frame with doors. In such designs, the column will be well ventilated, without overheating. The disadvantage of such a solution is that the method is completely unsuitable for small kitchens - the module takes up too much space if implemented in accordance with all the rules of safe operation.

The design of the kitchen with a gas boiler involves not only masking the column itself, but also the pipe, hose and chimney. During repair work, in no case should they be walled up in the walls. All parts of the gas boiler must be easily accessible and at hand. It is enough to decorate communications in the necessary tones. They hide in special boxes and profiles with doors that can be easily opened if desired. If the kitchen interior is done in high-tech style, then all communications can be left open and in plain sight. It is enough to tint some in the desired colors.
