The Kitchen According to the Senses

Choose elements that satisfy sight, hearing, touch and smell

Not just taste, but sight, smell, touch and hearing.
Did you know that a kitchen can positively stimulate all your senses?
Discover which elements will satisfy your senses and how to choose them to maximize your sensorial comfort.

A piece of furniture can be beautiful to see and also a pleasure to touch.

A material's texture is as important as its color.

The harmonic aspect
The beauty of form, chrome and orderliness are factors that can positively stimulate your sight.
So it is important to think of your space in a way that conforms to your personal tastes and visual equilibrium.
If you are decorating your kitchen from scratch try choosing a color scheme (one or two base colors and some of their variants) to create harmony between the various elements.
Otherwise 'harmonize' your color scheme by changing the colors of accessories and walls so that they better match the furniture.
The importance of silence
Think of when you feel like relaxing after dinner, but you must turn on your noisy dishwasher, or you have just finished cooking for your guests but the hum of the ventilation hood disturbs your conversation.
For your kitchen to be a sanctuary of well being, you must not forget the importance of hearing.
For audio-comfort choose minimally noisy appliances.
How do do that? Just check the energy labels where the noise level is indicated in decibels.
Touching materials
A piece of furniture can be beautiful to see and also a pleasure to touch.
A material's texture is as important as its color.
All materials, from glass to wood, from stainless steel to ceramic can offer delicate and pleasurable sensations.
It's up to you to discover the materials which suit you and can transmit a subtle tactile sensation.
Aroma-therapy
If we think about smells in the kitchen, we immediately think of the smell of food.
When there are no cakes or cookies to perfume the space, you can use an essential oil.
The important thing is to not overdo the quantity and choose a fresh and light variety because if it's too strong it might overpower flavors and odors.
Try adding a few drops of essential oils to the radiator diffusors: even if you just want to eliminate unpleasant odors, the best are orange, bergamot, grapefruit and lemon.
