KITCHEN LAYOUT AND EFFECTIVE ZONING
When considering layouts, another important aspect is ensuring effective working zones are maintained within the kitchen. The principle behind this is that you want to keep key kitchen areas together – cooking, prep, food storage, refrigeration and washing areas. This means that when cooking, everything you need will be to hand in that one zone. This is a bit like the old fashioned concept of the ‘working triangle’. Like the working triangle, it is important to have related zones close to each other in the kitchen.This helps reduce travel and efficiency within the kitchen, saving time and effort.
When we consider all spaces and layouts, we always consider this and the impact it has on our clients daily life. A new kitchen can often be a fairly considerable investment so prioritising planning is key to maximising your return on investment.
To help us get some initial insight, we’ve developed our kitchen design questionnaire to help identify your dreams, lifestyle and priorities. Whenever you are ready, you can complete the quick and easy form here and we’ll get in touch with you to discuss further options.
