It is important to carefully plan what you want to do in the kitchen space. Though cooking is the usual answer to that, let’s not forget that in many homes, the kitchen is the heart of the family. Regardless of the plans that you have, all kitchen design should follow the triangle theory. The triangle theory specifies that all kitchens should have a natural pathway between the cooktop, fridge and the sink and adequate space in the middle of these fixtures to guarantee maximum efficiency. In addition, triangle theory also dictates that the space between the three major appliances should start between to 12 to 23 feet to make sure that everything is within reach while making sure that you don’t feel suffocated as well.
Also, pay attention to how the kitchen layout flows to the next room. As seen in the image above, the kitchen is connected to the dining area so the layout of both those rooms needs to compliment each other. If you have an open concept home, ensure there is a good flow between all spaces.

In terms of cabinetry, home designers have many choices when it comes to the materials and styles, along with wood being the top go-to material, while laminated and vinyl-coated are also available. These materials are much easier to clean while still maintaining the look of natural wood at the same time. The final decision for the materials of your cabinets will depend on your personal preferences, but the ones that are durable, easy to clean and low maintenance can make your kitchen last longer. Moreover, adding a bar set in the center of your kitchen adds more storage space for you to use.
