Do cooking shows like Masterchef, Top Chef and Hell’s Kitchen make you long for your own beautifully designed kitchen? Here are some tips for bringing some of that TV style to your home:
Consider the layout of the basic elements of a kitchen: the preparation and washing area (sink), the cooking area (gas/electric range and oven), and the storage area (refrigerator). These three elements are ideally spaced out in a triangle (what we call a “work triangle.”) Make sure there is ample space for working and walking about the kitchen. Ideally, walking distance around the kitchen should not exceed 6 meters. This will ensure efficiency in “producing” meals as if you were in your own cooking show.
