Your kitchen is a space where all the energies are concentrated: light, heat, movement and your creativity!
You are constantly moving from one kitchen component to another. Regardless of the size of your kitchen, it is essential to design an ergonomic layout to make your task easier. Greater efficiency means good, fast cooking, less energy consumption and fewer risks of accident.
Follow our advice to turn your kitchen into a practical and pleasant space.
The three places you visit most in your kitchen are:
Ideally they should form a triangle rather than a straight line. You will then move around less and minimise the risks of burning, for example.
Ideally, fit work surfaces between these three key locations.
Group the components into zones:
Make sure the oven and fridge are well away from each other. The heat from the oven will raise the fridge consumption if they are too close together.
In addition, sink and electrical sockets are not a happy mix. Watch out for short-circuits and risks of electrocution!
Beyond this advice, make sure the zones are arranged to suit your own needs.
