After having placed the triangle on the layout of your kitchen, decide how to place the other appliances. The dishwasher should always be situated directly next to the sink. There are plenty of options for cooking ranges, wall mounted ovens and integrated cook tops. The main question is: Do you want to cook with gas or electricity? Once you have chosen, get information about available appliances. The vent hood should always be located on an outside wall so the fumes are blown directly outside. If the way is too long or twisted, a hood will never work properly.
Kitchen designs know no bounds, as all it takes is someone with a good imagination and a knowledge of the industry. The first thing to do as a homeowner is to have some idea of what you want yourself, then draw a rough sketch of the design, get the family involved, because its surprising what little Johnny has learned in school and what he can come up with on the computer in no time at all. Every agent in the country will appreciate this, as its a nightmare to call to a home and the owners have no idea what they want, but every idea that the agent comes up with is shot down in seconds. The u-shaped kitchen is one of the most popular kitchens in modern homes in Ireland and the Uk, its simple a kitchens that runs along three walls and in some cases will have an island in the middle which can be used for casual dining. This type of kitchen affords one the ideal work triangle providing its not to large of an area. The ideal size in width is twelve feet and over as this will allow you place an island in the center between both outer walls.
Before going into planning details, analyze the traffic your kitchen will have to support. People will go into your kitchen and move from the fridge to the sink, the cabinets and the cooking range. Do children need easy access to drinks and snacks? Will there be traffic through your kitchen to other destinations? Is there a back door, a pantry or a basement door?
If you want your kitchen to stand apart, then you need to have a proper kitchen lighting design. This in turn underlines the space of your kitchen and other appliances, making it look very professional. But sadly most of us think that any light is fine for the kitchen. We even end up using unnecessary overhead lights which are no addition to the kitchen's overall appearance.
