Making Your Kitchen Easier to Work In
Work Triangle Basics
- No one side of the triangle should be greater than nine feet or less than four feet. If you slightly exceed or don’t meet these measurements, this doesn’t mean that your kitchen is dysfunctional. However, you should measure the distance to each triangle component to see exactly how your kitchen measures up. If you notice that you feel cramped on one side or can barely make it to the sink with a pot of boiling water on the other, then you might benefit from a kitchen remodel.
- The triangle should not be interrupted by traffic or cabinetry. If your work triangle dimensions are correct, but they don’t include walking around the island to get to the stove, or that people are always moving to the trashcan or standing by the refrigerator, then maybe kitchen traffic needs to be detoured.
- The perimeter of the triangle should measure no more than 26 feet and no less than 12 feet. If you have a small kitchen and each component is four feet away from the other, there’s not much you can do. But consider how easy it is to work in your kitchen. If something always feels a bit off when you are preparing a big meal, interior designers can help to restructure your kitchen.
