PLAN A KITCHEN WORK TRIANGLE
Is cooking or using your kitchen a hassle? Is the kitchen triangle spaced too far apart or too close together? A kitchen triangle connects the three main areas of your kitchen, sink, refrigerator and the stove/oven, to allow for a better work flow, but can sometimes be overwhelming when planning your kitchen renovation or design.
Often times, the kitchen is the center of a home. Families gather to cook together, eat meals, talk about their day, and where children finish their homework, so when the area doesn’t flow, it tends to be frustrating.
Measure your current area. The space between the major areas should not be less than 4 feet or greater than 9 feet. In your redesign, make sure the areas are clear of any obstructions.
How many cooks will be in your kitchen? Do you need more than one sink or an island?
Keep in mind what the area is used for. If children are completing their homework, a large bar might be beneficial for those nights where homework papers are scattered across a table.
