There are six (6) basic kitchen layouts which evolved from the traditional work triangle to more practical work-zone configurations.
The traditional work triangle concept is used to determine efficient kitchen layout based on the primary tasks carried out in the kitchen which center around the cook top, the sink and the refrigerator. These are the three (3) point on the triangle. The idea is when these points are relatively close to one another, then the kitchen will be easier and more efficient to use by reducing the distances traveled while working between these points.
Basic Kitchen Layouts
One Wall Kitchen was originally called the “Pullman kitchen,” the one-wall kitchen layout is generally found in kitchens with narrow spaces. In this configuration, all the cabinets and the appliances are mounted on only one side of the wall of the kitchen.
