Specialists refer to the sink, stove and refrigerator layout as the “kitchen triangle.” This refers to the area of the kitchen with the greatest activity & requires careful planning with unobstructed access.

 

Of the three, the sink will see the most action and should have easy access to the stove and refrigerator, as well as your countertop workstations.

 

Regardless of kitchen size or layout (L-shaped kitchen, galley, U-shaped or Island style), the sum of all the legs in a work triangle should not be less than 3 metres and greater than 7 metres. If the sum of the legs in the work triangle is too small, people will be tripping over each other and if too large, food preparation could be a very tiring task.
