That way, you don’t have to walk a far distance when accomplishing a task. For instance, you don’t have to step back and forth to stir your stew because you need to get the ladle at the other side of the room. Placing the stove and oven close to the food preparation area makes cooking more convenient. Additionally, the dishwasher should be strategically placed near the sink to simplify cleaning and putting away dishes.
You don’t necessarily have to follow the traditional “kitchen work triangle” concept, where the three main work areas (cooking, preparation, and storage) form a triangular layout for optimal efficiency. While this kitchen concept can be useful in most situations, it’s not always the best approach for every kitchen design. All your appliances and tools need to be close to each other to reduce unnecessary movement.
To optimise the kitchen layout based on your kitchen workflow, begin by understanding your daily routines and cooking habits. If you enjoy baking frequently, prioritise a designated baking zone with easy access to the oven and nearby storage for baking needs. Opt for an open and inclusive kitchen design if you’re a home chef who values socialising while cooking.
At KIND Kitchens, we will explore and understand your workflow and routine in a kitchen before our draft design. We will consider all aspects, such as existing pain points, cooking habits, and storage requirements, to ensure the best layout has been suggest. We ensure that the kitchens we build are flexible and adaptable for future modifications, so you don’t have to tear down the entire kitchen if you want to incorporate anything new.
