Out of all of the rooms in your home, the layout of your kitchen matters most. As a functional space, your experience of your kitchen is dramatically affected by how easily you can move around the space when cooking or cleaning. A professionally designed kitchen maximizes movement, minimizes the need to stoop and reach and improves your ability to use the kitchen as a multifunctional space.
A good kitchen layout will allow you to move easily between the three while cooking. It should also provide enough space so that if you are cooking alongside someone else, you won’t constantly be knocking into each other. To make this possible, a kitchen designer will create a “work triangle” between the stove, refrigerator, and sink that is typically angled between 15° and 25°.
Here an additional kitchen design tip – your kitchen can have several work triangles depending on your needs. The kitchen layout above has three – a primary zone for preparing food (in blue), a secondary zone for cooking and baking (in red) and a third zone for circulation through the kitchen (in yellow). This designer made sure that any traffic through the kitchen would not interfere with food preparation.
