The key to any successful remodeling project is great design, and this is especially true when it comes to the kitchen. You need your kitchen to be both functional and beautiful, and to make that happen you need a great design. To help you start thinking about how you want your future kitchen to be, in this article our team at McMillan Millwork & Joinery will be going over a few essential principles of great kitchen design.
- Work Sequence- The first principle of great kitchen design is work sequence, which refers to the order of activities involved in preparing food, from the moment you bring the food inside to the moment you sit down to eat it. Experts break this sequence into six different step — store, wash, prepare, cook, serve, eat–and recommend that you include space for each step, arranging these areas in a logical and intuitive way.
- Work Triangle- Another principle to keep in mind for great kitchen design is the work triangle, which is a term for the relationship between the three main kitchen appliances, the fridge, stove, and sink. These appliances should be arranged in a triangle to allow the most efficient workflow when cooking. Our team at McMillan Millwork & Joinery has the expertise to help you create a kitchen layout that allows you to cook delicious meals with a minimum of wasted effort.
