You’ll be most productive in your kitchen if your layout is in the shape of a triangle.
The National Kitchen and Bath Association has specified these guidelines for your “kitchen work triangle”.
* The sum of the work triangle’s three sides should not exceed 26 feet, and each leg should measure between 4 and 9 feet.
* The work triangle should not cut through an island or peninsula by more than 12 inches.
* If the kitchen has only one sink, it should be placed between or across from the cooking surface, preparation area, or refrigerator.
* No major traffic patterns should cross through the triangle.
Here’s a listing of their other kitchen design guidelines that focus on efficiency.
