The kitchen work triangle is concept usually integrated into most kitchen designs

It is a visual indication of the kitchen design plans which connects the three most important points in every kitchen. These being the sink, refrigerator, and cook-top.

The concept which apparently has originated back in the 1920’s brings about the most efficient path for these 3 points and calculates the amount of distance between them to allow an efficient design.

It is stated that

  • no leg of the triangle should be less than 1.2m and no more than 2.7m
  • the sum of all legs on triangle should not be less than 4.0m and no more than 7.9m
  • there should be no obstacles that intersect the triangle by more than 0.3m.
  • no tall or full height obstacles shall not come between 2 points of the triangle
