The kitchen is considered as the heart of your home, and how often you use your kitchen for cooking, this will be one of the most highly trafficked areas of your home. Designing a kitchen is more than just finding space for everything. The best kitchen layouts have been designed for function. Here are some tips for the perfect kitchen design for your space.
The kitchen has the work triangle or the kitchen triangle. The key points of this triangle are the sink, the stove and the refrigerator, which are the most often used appliances in the kitchen. For the best layout, make sure that each side of the triangle is at least four feet long, but not more than nine feet long. Overall, the three sides should not total more than 25 feet. The kitchen triangle needs to be unobstructed for best results. There are ways on how to lay out a kitchen in terms of counter placement. The most popular version is the U-shaped design. You can also work with an L-shaped design. The counter lay out depends largely on your doors and the length of the room. As you’re planning this, work with graph paper to get an accurate reflect on the size of the room so you can see if your design plan is practical.
Without space to work, a kitchen is impractical. When you move into a house, you may have to live with poor design choices that give you little room to work, but if you’re designing your own kitchen, you can take care of potential space problems before they ever arise.
