Beware: If you prefer privacy when you cook, or at least a buffer zone against guests, an L-shaped kitchen may not suit those needs.
She recommends Fisher & Paykel models for their sleek looks and efficient sizing. With the fridge on the perimeter of the action, other family members can get snacks without intruding on the cook’s workspace.
”Avoid placing work spaces opposite each other so that two people can comfortably work together without getting in each other’s way or having to stand directly back to back,” she adds.
And if the height of the room permits, upper cabinets or open shelving can be designed to go to the ceiling and make the most of every last bit of space.
Since the 1940s, the idea of the kitchen triangle has dominated. The sink, stove, and refrigerator each make up a point of the triangle and should be within a certain distance to one another for efficiency. Instead of a strict triangle, Black thinks in terms of clustering related activities.
The designer will want information from you, but you should seek information from the designer, too, including actual photos of his or her work — not brochures from manufacturers. ”If the designer can’t produce examples of his or her own work, leave,” White says.
