The kitchen triangle was developed in the 1940’s by the University of Illinois School of Architecture. This ergonomic principle is used by kitchen designers and architects to reduce walking between the three primary kitchen work areas: the refrigerator, the stove, and the sink. When these components are placed in a triangular shape and close to each other (without being too close) kitchen work becomes easier, safer and more efficient.
The work triangle is not a building code requirement; it is just a great guideline to follow. Your certified kitchen designer can help you create the most functional kitchen to fit your lifestyle…always thinking of the perfect triangle and also thinking “outside the triangle”.
