Kitchen design with traditional style.

  Kitchen is an important part in the layout of an apartments, townhouse or a villa. Kitchen design can not separate from interior design of a house or an apartment. So if we decide a style for general space, then all functional areas will follow and develop base on that style. Some people would like to see and living under modern space, but others might like traditional or classical one.
  At this post , I would like to introduce to you about a kitchen design in a high rise apartment with traditional style.

Characteristics of a classic style kitchen is easy to see that cabinets are made of natural wood or artificial wood. Kitchen cabinets and hanging cabinets are divided into regular rhythm and harmony. We also see some decorative details as wooden cornice with crown molding, trim molding panel for cabinets ...

Binh's House

This house is located on Bien Hoa city, which is far from Ho Chi Minh city about 100 kilometer (or 0.8 mile). It will be constructed on a plot size of 5 meter in width and 13 meters in length.
When finished, the project will stand 2 storeys high, 01 living room, 02 bedrooms with nearly 100 square meters usable area.
At first, i have made a quick sketch to show a general idea.
Ground Floor : 
The house will set back 2.5 meters to create a front yard, that use for parking motobike and plan some tree along fence wall. I will place a living room, a kitchen and a small dinning room in this level. Open space would be a right choice, so that we can make space look like morden, keep interior fluency , and maximise the view from inside. A small rest_room will be spaced underneath staircase.
Ground Floor
First Floor:
Two bedroom and one bathroom will be placed on this level
