• Indian Kitchen Renovation - Work Triangle

Renovating Kitchen ? Understand Kitchen Work Triangle

Lets say you are planning to Renovate your kitchen. Perhaps you are changing the position of Kitchen Platform or something like that.

Apart from how beautiful your kitchen looks there is one important design concept which every kitchen should hold nicely.

Its called “Kitchen Work Triangle”

Imagine a triangle that connects the three main places
– cleanup
– cooking
– Food storage

Whenever you prepare food – what happens is – you move between three places
For storage you will open refrigerator (you keep lot of things in side fridge)
For cleanup – you go to your kitchen Sink, (say you want to wash some vegetables/fruits)
For cooking – you go to stove or cooking ware (you cook food, boil water etc )

This places & its respective activities form “Kitchen Work triangle”

So when you prepare a meal, you do lot of walking between these three points.

If you place these too far away from each other you waste a lot of energy in walking around.
If corners are too close to each other you will not have much space to work.

Ideally each leg should be atleast 4 feet but not more then 9 feet
Do not place cabinets or some obstruction between this triangle
kitchen should be designed in such way that your household traffic should not flow through this triangle
