Furniture arrangement
To create a warm and inviting environment, each item should be placed in a most appropriate place to give a cosy sense of "place” recreated in a wing of the House.
Without losing sight of the necessary spaces to ensure functionality of the various compartments of the kitchen, "gulf" "L" or "railway" like furniture arrangements can help create this look: in these configurations, by positioning the dining table in the middle, whoever is seated will always feel surrounded and reassured by this ring composition.
Lighting

Light also has an essential role in recreating an atmosphere of intimacy.
Taking note that in every kitchen it is always very important to have it in abundance through large windows; for artificial light you can experiment with different arrangements for the various angles that need it the most.
For cooking you can place some halogen spotlights above the wall units, also adjustable, so you can always have the perfect amount of light in the place where you work the most.
For the dining table you can choose a low hanging lamp, able to focus light to a delimited space.

Finishes

Colours and materials selected for the finishes can greatly contribute to create this atmosphere.
The main directive, in this sense, is to select aesthetically rich and mellow elements.
Choosing pastel tones combined with Decorceramica worktops is one of the most valuable and fascinating possibilities to recreate a warm environment.
