In a series of posts we will be highlighting the many aspects of kitchen redesign based on our experience of over a decade and having built over 200 cooking spaces in Goa. To begin with, the first and perhaps the most important aspect of kitchen re-design guide is to create a plan around the kitchen work triangle. The kitchen work triangle consists of three major aspects; the sink, the refrigerator and the stove and how these elements feature in your kitchen design.
Ideally the distance of the kitchen triangle should not be more than 8-9 feet apart. More the distance apart the longer you would have to travel between these main kitchen essentials every time you fix a meal, making it a tiresome experience. It is strongly recommended that you first identify the placement of these objects and then create the layout design around it. The next aspect that needs to be addressed is storage; no matter how big or small a kitchen is the need for storage is never enough. Storage can planned for using overhead cabinetry and bottom to ceiling storage shelves. A balance between open and closed shelves and cabinets will create better appearance to the area.
