10 BASIC AREAS or CENTERS

11 THE WORK TRIANGLE  The 3 centers of the kitchen (storage, cooking, and cleanup) should be arranged so that if you drew a line connecting the three centers, the lines should form a triangle.  This is known as the work triangle.

14 U-SHAPED KITCHENS  The U-shaped kitchen is an efficient and popular design where the sink is usually located at the bottom of the U. The range and refrigerator are perpendicular to the sink, on opposite sides. Photo ©

15 U-SHAPED KITCHENS  When designing a U-shaped kitchen, the open space between the two parallel sides of the “U” should be 4’ or 5’ in width.  Although the resulting kitchen space is rather small, it is efficient to work with.  What other types of kitchen shapes have you seen?

16 OTHER KITCHEN SHAPES  U-shaped  Peninsula  L-shaped  Corridor  One-wall  Island  Family kitchen
