Kitchen Design Basics

Since its founding more than 50 years ago, Home Supply & Lumber Center in Hawthorne, New Jersey, has provided its customers with top-quality kitchen installation and design, along with the best available materials. With a staff of experienced carpenters, designers, and coordinators, Home Supply has the resources to help customers in Hawthorne and the surrounding areas create the kitchen of their dreams.

A kitchen is more than just a collection of appliances, and homeowners should consider a couple specific elements when designing their ideal kitchen.

– The work triangle. Composed of the cook-top, refrigerator, and sink, the ideal work triangle has no leg shorter than four feet or longer than 26 feet. This gives anyone using the kitchen enough space to keep things relatively within reach without feeling crowded.

– The flow of the kitchen. If the kitchen sees heavy foot traffic from children or other family members coming and going, organize it so that traffic is directed away from the cooking area. An island or small pantries for often-used items are a good way to help encourage kitchen flow.
