There are four basic types of kitchen lightings that are available. They are the accent, ambient, task and the decorative lighting. In order to make the kitchen utilizable, task kitchen lighting is used. This lighting is perfect for chopping vegetables with a sharp knife or reading your favorite recipe. The appropriate location of task lighting is between the working area and the person running the kitchen.
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.
Your new kitchen's style should match the rest of your house. If you have a traditional style house your new kitchen should have a more traditional look and feel to it.
Having enough fridge space is essential. As a rule of thumb you need half a cubic meter (500 liters) for the first two family members and another 0.04 cubic meters (40 liters) for every additional family member.
