THE KITCHEN WORK TRIANGLE
Hello friends of Bali Interio, The kitchen is one of the rooms in the house that must exist. Kitchens don’t have to be luxurious and use expensive materials, prioritize functionality over trends. To create a comfortable and effective kitchen, there are some basic things that we must know. One of them is ‘The Kitchen work triangle’ which means how a cooking process is integrated with each other so as to create a pattern of activity in the kitchen. The shape of the kitchen affects the triangle shape of this kitchen activity as well, here are some kitchen layout designs taking into account the concept of ‘The Kitchen Work Triangle’.
L' Shape Kitchen
The arrangement of the kitchen table that is attached to an angled wall so that it is in the shape of the letter L. Usually a kitchen that has an L shape is small, so the selection of the kitchen set must also be done well so that the room does not seem cramped, cramped and dark.
'U' Shape Kitchen
The arrangement of the kitchen table attached to 3 areas of the wall that resembles the letter U. Usually a U-shaped kitchen is applied if the existing room is not so large, so it is very important to maximize the use of the existing space.
'G' Shaped Kitchen
The arrangement of the kitchen table attached to 2 areas of the wall which is a development of the U shape kitchen with one area of the table off so that it resembles the letter G. This G shape kitchen is applied if the kitchen space is not so large, but wants to have a breakfast table or mini bar in the kitchen area .
The development of the U shape kitchen but has a separate counter table as if there is a separate island. Usually on the island it is placed on the stove or sink. This kitchen layout is a favorite layout in designing a kitchen. Because the concept of a kitchen like this gives a warm impression. The island kitchen is applied if the space you have is sufficient and also applies if the kitchen and other spaces are integrated without a dividing wall or partition.
'Single Wall' or 'Straight' Kitchen
The arrangement of the kitchen table that only sticks to one wall area. This kitchen application is very suitable for kitchens with a limited area so that the storage area, the applied area and the cooking area are in a straight line. In this layout, ‘The Kitchen Work Triangle’ cannot be applied, but it can still be tricked by placing the storage area – the area for preparing food – the cooking area which is placed sequentially.
'Gallery' or 'Corridor' or 'Parallel' Kitchens
The arrangement of the kitchen table that is attached there are 2 areas of the wall that are opposite and leave a circulation path in the middle. Usually this application is carried out if the kitchen is in the corridor area that connects one room to another.
Basically the Peninsula kitchen is an extension of the island kitchen but compared to the counter kitchen which is placed in the center of the kitchen, the peninsula is accessible from three sides and serves as an extension of the kitchen layout and this Peninsula kitchen can also be applied if the kitchen and other spaces are not applied. has a dividing wall or partition and is usually applied to a kitchen that is not too large in size.
Here are the types of kitchen layouts that can be applied in your home by paying attention to ‘The Kitchen Work Triangle’ so that when cooking and preparing ingredients for cooking, you don’t have to bother going back and forth in the kitchen.
