How to Choose a Kitchen Layout Based on the Fridge-Oven-Sink Work Triangle [Infographic]

We just spotted this infographic on that helps new home owners pick out a layout for their kitchen and instantly thought of sharing it further. Created in collaboration with Kitchen Cabinet Kings, the drawings below describe the different layout options available, considering the effective work triangle. This basically consists of three key appliances: the fridge, oven, and sink/dishwasher.

According to the developers, each of the floor plans gives useful advice on the positions for the work triangle in order to have an efficient and harmonious layout. We find some information in the infographic really valuable, especially in the apartment planning phase. We found out for example that an U-shaped kitchen is ideal for two cooks and should be implemented in a floor area of at least 8X8 feet. Or that gallery layouts are great space savers. Have a look and select the idea that best suits your new kitchen!

    Honestly think that whoever wrote these tips, not even remotely know how to design a functional kitchen .. the simplest rules of the routes and locations and of the appliances are wrong! Please pay more attention to how it suggests an environment to readers / customers
    i’m sorry for my english.

    sinceramente penso che chi ha scritto questi suggerimenti , non sappia neanche lontanamente come si progetta una cucina funzionale.. le più semplici regole dei percorsi e delle collocazioni degli elettrodomestici sono sbagliate ! prego porre più attenzione a come si suggerisce un ambiente ai lettori / clienti
