A home renovation is an opportunity to create a kitchen or kitchenette layout of your dreams, or one that works within available space. When planning an ideal layout, the “kitchen triangle” or zone methods can be good places to start. The triangle considers the sink, refrigerator, and stove/oven as the triangle’s three points. The zone method organizes a space by elements needed for prep, cooking, and cleaning. These approaches enhance functionality of the kitchen, but they may not work for every space. You can always stray away from it to better fit your needs or space.
