The kitchen work triangle is a concept we use in the design of efficient kitchen layouts. The primary tasks in a home kitchen are carried out between the cooker, sink and the refridgerator. These points and the imaginary lines between them offer you a seamless workflow. So if the shape of your kitchen is U-shaped, L-shaped, galley or otherwise a layout using the triangle at its heart can change the way you use your kitchen. Designer Tip: When redesigning a kitchen, put function first. Whatever the kitchen shape, plan for the sink, fridge and cooker to form a triangle for ease of movement.

The kitchen has taken over from the dining room as a place to relax and socialise. A bar with stools or an island unit offers extra kitchen workspace as well as creating a central focal piece.

The kitchen has changed with the times we live in. It has become an all-purpose room where everyone gets involved. It is a place to relax and entertain as well as a place to cook.
