The kitchen triangle is an essential aspect of kitchen design and remodeling. The triangle is derived from three points – the sink, the stove, and the refrigerator, which are the spaces where you clean, prepare, and store food.  Keeping the triangle in mind while remodeling helps the flow and functionality of your new kitchen design!

Regardless of what shape or size your kitchens floor plan is, the kitchen triangle is the key to efficiency. Experts say that each leg of the triangle should be at least 4 feet long, but no longer than 9 feet. It is advised that cabinetry should not intersect any of the legs of the triangle by more than 12 inches, nor should major household traffic flow through the triangle.

Making sure that your kitchen is set up so the triangle is effective will make it a more enjoyable, productive space in your home.
