By standard definition, a modern kitchen is any kitchen that uses electricity or natural gas. So technically speaking, I guess every kitchen in the western world is known as a modern kitchen. However for the purposes of this article, we're going to expand the definition and focus on the conveniences of modern kitchen design and the benefits that you can potentially enjoy every day no matter your lifestyle.
The work triangle used to be the base of kitchen planning. This triangle is formed by the refrigerator, the cooking range and the sink. According to conventional rules, the triangle is the shortest distance between the fronts of each appliance. The triangle should not be longer than 8 meters (26 feet). A single leg should be at least 1.23 meters (4 feet) and not more than 2.74 meters (9 feet). The cook should be able to walk without hindrance from appliance to appliance. I followed this rule in my kitchen and I am really happy with it. Friends of ours have built a huge house with an equally huge kitchen. They did not deem it necessary to consider something as prosaic as the work triangle. The result is a beautiful kitchen where you have to walk seven meters from the fridge to the sink - cooking in this kitchen requires a lot of exercise.
Ambient lighting is the next kind of kitchen lighting. Although this lighting can bring about a lot of improvement in your kitchen, it is often overlooked. What we usually think is that there is no need for extra lights in the kitchen. But what we are forgetting is that these lights create that soft magical glow which is very warm and it also moderates the shadows in the kitchen space. And give you that feeling of being at home which we all crave for.
