Kitchen Design Basics

Kitchen Design Basics

Clients often ask us about the concept of “the triangle” when considering a kitchen remodel. Basically, the classic “triangle” is composed of the sink/dishwasher, the refrigerator, and the stove/oven, and kitchen designs paid careful attention to the flow between these three elements.

Kitchen Triagle

What has happened recently, however, is that kitchen remodels have often become larger, and the “triangle” has morphed into multiple triangles. This is especially true if the kitchen has an island, or multiple ovens and stoves or prep sinks.

Multiple Triangles

The point is that todays modern kitchens allow for thinking outside the box while adhering to sound design principles.
