Although the work triangle has been a useful guideline for generations, nowadays it tends to be too simplified. Today we use more than 3 appliances in the kitchen; the microwave and dishwasher have to fit into the concept as well as the blender and other gadgets. Still - the triangle remains a good starting point.
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.
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.
For instance, 2 of every 1 turn out racks give you the choice of putting away littler things like flavors and flatware on head of an enormous cabinet. This can give you more extra room than you recently had in your drawers. You can likewise utilize cookware coordinators in your kitchen drawers with the goal that you can keep your pots, skillet and tops sorted out.
