The Work Triangle

Known in the industry as the most efficient way to use your kitchen, the work triangle measures the zones in your kitchen that will best capture the usability and functionality of your space. The triangle between cooking, cleaning & prep, and food refrigeration that is ideal for any household.

Types of Kitchen Remodels

One Wall Kitchen

Usually found in smaller homes and consists of cabinetry installed on one wall from top to bottom.  A more modern approach would incorporate shelving units instead of cabinets – Ultimately a simple layout that provides the basic functionality of a kitchen.

L-Shaped Kitchen

A bit more practical in both small and large kitchens. ‘L’ shaped kitchens will typically contain cabinetry runs parallel with the perimeter walls. It offers great flexibility within the space and is often accompanied by a peninsula or island feature.

Galley Kitchen

Consists of two rows of cabinetry facing each other and creating a unified space between the two sides. This design eliminates the need for additional cabinetry and provides specific workstations & locations within the space. This design is perfect for larger families or multiple cooks within the household

The Island Kitchen

Probably the most popular option when redesigning a kitchen layout. Typically used to house a workstation or extra storage and seating for the home’s occupants, the island can take on many shapes and sizes.  Ideally placed in kitchens wider than 12′, the placement of the island can be a great way to create a natural traffic flow and break up open and unused floor space.

U-Shaped Kitchen

A perfect layout for larger kitchens. It involves using three of the kitchen’s walls and It provides additional storage and/or counter space.  The ‘U’-shaped kitchen allows for more options when it comes to the placement of your work zones and is easier to utilize the work triangle.

The Peninsula Kitchen

The peninsula is a good way to get more storage and seating in your kitchen when there isn’t enough room for a proper island.  Oftentimes the peninsula is looked at as ‘outdated’, but it happens to be one of the more popular approaches to creating a better workflow and ultimately a better functioning space when space is limited.
