Creating the perfect WORK TRIANGLE-

The kitchen work triangle connects the three primary work centers of a kitchen: the sink, the refrigerator and the range.

Today’s kitchens are much more than places to cook. They are often the social center of the home, the game room, the gathering room, the office, the entertaining room, the eating room and the homework room. As a result, kitchens have become larger with more emphasis on islands, counter tops and seating. Still, the kitchen work triangle is an important to consider.  After all, a kitchen does need to be functional for cooking regardless of the other purposes it fills.

The guidelines for the work triangle distance between the three areas should be no less than four feet and no larger than nine feet. These measurements assure that the kitchen will be large enough to feel open and let traffic flow through while keeping the steps traveling between the areas to a minimum.

This is particularly important with today’s large kitchens. Using this work triangle will be sure to concentrate your cooking activities into one area of the room leaving other areas for dining, entertainment, homework etc.

As you establish the design of your new kitchen determine how the kitchen work triangle will work for you, you will want to take into consideration the prep area. The kitchen triangle does not include this important space, but you’ll clearly want a prep area near the sink for chopping and mixing.

Look at every function your kitchen will serve. Once you have established a “wish list”, you can place each of your desired features into the kitchen, including the perfect work triangle.

Planning ahead will help you be sure you have the features you want and a work triangle that contributes to your cooking success.

Few elements say “dream kitchen” in the way that a fireplace does. They represent the ultimate in comfort and coziness, and satisfy a primal longing to gather around a hearth. When most people think of kitchen fireplaces, however, they picture a mammoth brick surround with a cavernous firebox that could easily hold a cast iron kettle or a spit for roasting meat.

A fireplace can add value and visual interest to your home. New fireplace technology makes it easy and affordable to add a fireplace to any room in your home, including the kitchen. There are several types of fireplaces that can be used in the kitchen. Some provide ambiance alone, while others can be used as an additional cooking source.

These modern spaces redefine the kitchen fireplace archetype, with stripped-down structures that still radiate homey appeal. Which one inspires you most?
