The kitchens we know today are functional and were designed from an industrial logic. A functional layout and optimization of work space in the kitchen can be achieved through the development of home appliances. This layout includes horizontal half-height worktops that can be used for multiple purposes and many configurations.
The kitchen worktops can be used for a variety of activities, including sanitizing food and cleaning appliances. They can also be used to store or display decorative items. The wet area is the area closest to the tap and sink where food is handled. The dry area serves as a workspace and storage area. In smaller kitchens, these two areas can be linked to one countertop or separated by space.
It is not only the difference in functionality that makes dry countertops different, but it also helps to choose the right materials for finishing. Because they are constantly in direct contact with water, it’s important that the material used for the wet countertops is not porous and can withstand constant humidity. Wet countertops are often supplied with a piece that is attached to the wall. This prevents water from getting behind the furniture. Wet countertops can be made of concrete, stone, stainless steel, or synthetic putty. Dry countertops can be made from organic materials like wood.
You can choose the finish of your countertops to make functional kitchens that are suitable for culture and daily life. These are some examples of workbenches that have been made from different materials.
