More than any room in the house, the kitchen needs to be practical and functional. Think about how you use your current kitchen to identify your priorities for the remodelled space. What works and what doesn’t? Give considerable thought to the layout of the room and assess what will work best for your household.
Whenever possible, make use of the classic work triangle. Arrange the sink, refrigerator, and stove (the three features used the most) in a triangular pattern. This is generally considered to be the most convenient setup because it saves unnecessary steps.
Also, think about how many people usually work in the kitchen at the same time. If it’s more than one, you might want to incorporate more than one workspace. Or, if there’s enough space, consider adding a kitchen island or perhaps purchase a wheeled cart that can be moved around the room and put away when not in use.
