Kitchen Planning Tips The kitchen is the heart of the home. It is a place for cooking, entertaining, eating, socializing, relaxing, and working. The kitchen sees more activity by the whole family and their guests than any other space in a home and that should be taken into account when building or remodeling. Having a well-designed and organized kitchen can make all the difference in the world. Deciding on kitchen countertop layouts for new construction or remodeling is a big decision. There are four basic kitchen layouts which have proven to be effective in managing space and traffic. They all make use of the “kitchen triangle” principle, which means that a uniform triangle can be drawn between the sink, the refrigerator, and the stove. Having a successful kitchen that works effectively is fairly easy as long as its planner takes into account the fact that a kitchen activity flow must follow a triangular path. This is what kitchen designers call 'work triangle'. When you remodeling triangle in a kitchen layout means the distance between the sink, refrigerator and cooker.
1. The path of a kitchen's work triangle begins at the food storage area i.e.refrigerator. This path's distance can range between 42" (1m) to 60" (1.5m) to both the kitchen sink and the cooker. 2. The next point of the triangular path is the food cleaning and processing area (sink). The area and the counter-surface around it is where foods are cleaned, cut, mixed, stuffed, etc..., and set in readiness for cooking. Of course,it sometimes depends on the type of dish being prepared for instance, salads require no cooking while beef stroganoff does. 3. The last path of movement and point of the work triangle is the cooking areaand this is the location where the oven, the stove, and microwave is installed. This is where the processed and mixed foods are cooked. This triangular path works well for efficient activity flow and though kitchen designs should be (to some degree) adaptable to homeowners ways of life, certain things will still remain constant. Nonetheless, the best kitchen planning involves following a flow pattern (whilst working) that heightens efficiency and saves both time and expended physical energy. “Triangle layout” is not the only kitchen layout, here are many variants for kitchen designing and our skillful and experienced designers are ready to help you design cozy and modern kitchen with practical layout.
