Beautiful apron for the kitchen

Kitchen apron is the space between the work surface (table top) and wall cabinets. Usually, the wall in this place is not left empty, since there is a high probability of contamination, but is covered with some material that serves as protection from damp, hot steam and greasy spray. Such an apron can be hung either along the whole wall or exclusively above the stove or sink. It can perform not only its main protective function, but also decorative. Therefore, the selection of the design of the apron is very important and usually takes a lot of time, because it must harmoniously fit into the interior of the kitchen and stylistically approach the kitchen set.

Depending on the style of the kitchen space, the panels can be glass, decorated with ceramic tiles, both small and large, made of MDF or plastic, which can be decorated in any way with the help of photoprints.The color of the apron should be combined not only with the kitchen, but also with the color of the kitchen walls, and if you are particularly picky, then you can also combine with table and home appliances. Contrast options are very interesting, for example, a white wall and a black glossy apron. Also, the whole kitchen space can be monotonous, and the apron can be the only bright element.

Designer sizes and tips

In a standard kitchen the height of an apron usually reaches 60 cm. But for originality, you can order a panel made according to individual parameters. They depend primarily on your height, and secondly on the type of slab. The lower your height, the lower the wall cabinets will hang, and therefore you will not need a high apron.

You should also pay attention to the fact that if you are the owner of a gas stove, then the distance between it and the hood should be about 80 cm, then the panel will have to be made higher.

  1. Being engaged in the selection of the size of the apron, remember that he must go a few centimeters under the top and under the lower cabinets to fully protect the wall from contamination.
  2. The joints of the tabletop with an apron need to be treated with a sealant or hide behind a plinth.Otherwise, the moisture will fall under the panel and soon they may be deformed.
  3. An apron made of porous materials is probably the worst option, since a lot of dust and fats will accumulate on this surface, which is inconvenient to wash out, and as a result, mold can form.

In case your budget is limited, there is always the opportunity to choose an inexpensive kitchen wall with smooth simple facades, choose plain wallpaper and plain floor, and spend the remaining amount on a high-quality bright apron that would become the highlight of the kitchen and reflect your design abilities.

  • When choosing a kitchen apron design, first of all you need to decide what role it will play in your kitchen.

  • White is one of the most versatile colors found in the kitchen.It is perfectly combined both with household appliances of the same color, and finishing and decorative elements. If you suddenly decided that a monochromatic white apron is trite, then you can combine it with multi-colored mosaic details or single inserts of tiles of other colors.

Other popular and versatile colors for the apron panel include the color of coffee with milk, solid, sparkling champagne and noble ivory.
