The Kitchen Triangle is one of the most important factors when designing a fitted kitchen.
The Kitchen Triangle is the space between the stove, fridge and sink; as these are the most frequently used areas of a kitchen. In order for your new fitted kitchen to not only look beautiful but function efficiently as a kitchen, our designers always take the kitchen triangle into consideration.
Here are some rules to the Kitchen Triangle:
- No leg of the triangle should be less than 1.2 metres or more than 2.7 metres.
- Nothing should, if possible, obstruct a leg of the triangle.
- If possible, there should be no other traffic through the triangle.
We know that a perfect triangle isn’t always possible in every new fitted kitchen. Single wall or galley kitchen are examples of how a triangle can’t always be applied. However, the principles of the Kitchen Triangle, to create a perfect working space within your new kitchen are always at the forefront of our designers’ mind, even if they can’t traditionally be applied..
