There are basically two designs in which the kitchen can be laid out. The first is called the ’classic triangle design’ and the second is ’zone centered design’. The classic triangle design was proposed way back in 1950s, hence has become somewhat obsolete now. It revolves around three stations, the range, refrigerator, and the kitchen sink. The placement of these stations often results in a triangle, referred to as ’work triangle’. The idea behind this design is to arrange the three stations in such a way that the working area in the kitchen is optimized. Ideally, the space at the center of the triangle should be free, thus, you will have to place kitchen island out of this triangle. If you place the island at the center, you will have to do a lot of extra walking, moreover, taking a detour around the island can be quite tedious with hands full of dishes or pots and pans. Occasionally, it is alright to overlap the island along the edge of the triangle.
French country kitchen colors are very popular, and this theme gives a cozy and warm look to the kitchen. Pick color for walls which are a butter shade of yellow and off-white and stucco texture for the ceiling. Add weathered and stained cabinets, and display copper cookware, and use terracotta tiles. Pick an earthy granite material for kitchen countertops. Then add few wrought iron chairs and chandelier to complete the look.
The number and size of appliances have increased manifold since 1950. Thus, the classic triangle design may not work for the modern kitchens of today, that flaunt sophisticated appliances. Hence, the idea of zone centered design came into practice. The concept of this layout design is based on division of kitchen into several zones, based on the activity. Meaning, the appliances are arranged in the order of their utility. Any modern kitchen can be primarily divided into main zones such as cooking, cleaning, baking, eating, storing, etc. This way, you can find whatever you need for a single activity at one place only. Not only this will reduce the time taken for fetching things and making trips within the kitchen, it will also keep your kitchen more organized and clutter free.
