Other Aspects of Good Work Circulation Easy access to the basement, garage and storage areas. Clothes care center in a convenient location. Ask yourself these Questions Can the cook prepare a meal without worrying about constantly walking into someone going by? If people can eat in their rooms or living areas, can they get there without leaving a trail through the entire house? If you spend a lot of time grilling outside on the patio, is it convenient to the inside food prep area? Do you have to walk through to the other end of the house to reach the outdoor grill? Can you bring the groceries right in from the outside without having to go through the living room?
Service Entrance Service entrances should be located near the kitchen and basement stairs.
Guest Circulation Entry, living, dining, powder room or ½ bath not in private area’s of the home, porches, patios, entertainment rooms. Ask Yourself How to guests travel to the living room when you are entertaining? Do they have to go through private areas of your home? How do they get to the powder room?
