How to Establish a Kitchen Work Triangle

The design principle that improves functionality in any modern kitchen: the kitchen work triangle.

If you’re in the process of remodeling your kitchen, you may have heard about the kitchen work triangle during the design phase of the project. Experts regard the work triangle as the best and most efficient way to design a modern kitchen. The concept is simple, but it can help you create a functional, beautiful kitchen that you will love for years to come. Learn more about the kitchen work triangle, and schedule a consultation with Bowen Remodeling today! 

The Work Triangle 

What is the kitchen work triangle exactly? Simply put, the work triangle connects the three main work areas in the kitchen. The most important kitchen areas consist of the sink, the range, and the refrigerator. The concept of the kitchen triangle was created over 70 years ago, but it is still relevant to modern kitchen design. By establishing a work triangle, homeowners can build a kitchen that is as functional as it is attractive. 

Kitchen Zones 

When the kitchen work triangle was first established, most homeowners viewed the kitchen as a space to cook and clean. Today’s homeowners see the kitchen as so much more. The kitchen is a place to prepare meals, entertain guests, help the kids with their homework, and unwind after a stressful day. A kitchen, the heart of the home, it can be broken down into basic zones. 

The Cooking Zone 

The cooking zone is self-explanatory, but every homeowner’s cooking zone is different. Do you enjoy preparing large meals for family and friends? Do you like to involve your children in the meal preparation process? The cooking zone should accommodate all of your specific needs, whether you are looking for more counter space or storage. 

The Cleaning Zone 

Cleaning up after a delicious meal doesn’t have to be a chore! Instead, the kitchen design can work with you to make the cleaning process easy! The location of the dishwasher, garbage, recycling, and cleaning items can help you simplify the cleaning process every day. 

The Dining Zone 

You may have a separate dining room for special occasions, but most families enjoy their evening meals in the kitchen. With a dining zone, you can savor a delicious meal with your family in the comfort of your kitchen!
