Manufacturing ceramic tile requires large amounts of energy because the tiles are fired twice. Installing ceramic tile can affect indoor air quality (IAQ). To protect air quality, install tiles with solvent-free mastic on a durable, rot-proof surface such as cement backer board. Also choose grout sealers free of formaldehyde and low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Ceramic tile is easy to clean, heatproof and available in a wide range of colors, textures and designs. It`s also durable and can contain recycled content such as glass, porcelain, salvaged ceramic scrap or feldspar tailings. Using ceramic tile does create an uneven counter surface, however. Individual tiles can easily chip or crack, and grout can stain. Costs vary widely based on the tile choice and difficulty of installation.
You should consider how easily you will be able to move around and how convenient everything will be able to be accessed when planning your small kitchen design. The kitchen sink, stove, and refrigerator should be arranged in a triangular pattern. This concept is known as the work triangle. It saves you unnecessary steps when working in your small kitchen and preparing foods. Having more than one work center will also allow more than one person at a time to be able to work efficiently in the kitchen. A self standing chopping block will create another work space. If you separate your microwave from the stove, that will create even more working space. This will allow workers to be in the kitchen without getting in each other`s way. Built in appliances save you space as well being that they do not need to be set on the counter. Appliances that are efficient and space saving like dish washers, garbage disposals and trash compactors are another option to saving space.
