The “Work Triangle” connects the 3 fundamental workstations of the kitchen– the sink, the range, and the fridge.
To ensure maximum efficiency, the distance between each area should not be less than 4 feet but not more than 9 feet. The sum of all 3 sides of the triangle should be between 13 feet and 26 feet.
If the work triangle perimeter is too small, it can make the kitchen feel cramped. On the other hand, if it’s too large, it can make movements a hassle.
The Work Triangle is a simple idea which saves time and energy. By keeping a certain amount of space between the main working areas, it makes daily kitchen preparations easier and keeps workspace traffic to a minimum.
