The kitchen work triangle will never go out of style, but a new concept in kitchen design is emerging and we think you’ll like it. It takes the idea of work zones to the next level. Traditionally the work triangle included efficient spacing between the refrigerator, sink and range. But this new approach is expanding that idea to include designated areas for other common kitchen tasks. With everyone spending more time at home, the addition of specialty stations for drinks, snack, homework and work-at-home is gaining momentum. This is a real plus, especially when we are spending more time at home and all using the kitchen at once.
Multiple and flexible zones are a personalized way to design a kitchen that includes sophisticated storage, integrated appliances and statement backsplashes. This lovely example features Shiloh Cabinetry for a remodel by Stebnitz Builders.
Food Storage Zone
Consumable food storage includes refrigeration and pantry cabinets.
Food Prep Zone
The food preparation zone can be a short distance from cooking zone to allow multiple cooks to work at the same time.
A centralized location that allows for free movement between work surfaces, dishwasher and trash.
Non-consumables storage houses cooking and dining essentials.
Storage and Coffee Bar
Specialty areas follow along with each homeowners interests.
Dining and Multi-Use Island Surface
A grand island offers casual dining and an expansive work surface for homework, work-at-home or craft projects.
Beverage Bar and Refreshment Station
An additional area adjacent to the main living space can relieve congestion and centralize snack and beverage options.
