One of the secrets to a well designed and fully functional kitchen here is that Bettinsons Kitchens Leicester consider kitchen triangles.
It is so easy to get caught up in the beauty of new items such as furniture, worktops, kitchen cupboards, appliances and how these will fit perfectly into a room, but will this create a fully functional kitchen? In our experience of designing, fitting and completing those all important finishing touches at Bettinsons Kitchens Leicester for home owners and the trade in Leicestershire we have found that the priority over and above the stunning appearance of the kitchen is its functionality. We would never disregard the importance of the appearance of the kitchen, but it must also be functional, it’s all about striking that perfect balance.
When people talk to you about the kitchen triangle they are simply referring to the positioning of the sink, hob / cooker and the fridge. These three kitchen appliances need to be close to each other, due to the functionality of the kitchen, i.e. moving from the hob to the sink with a pan of boiling water to drain vegetables, quickly getting the milk from the fridge to add to a pan of sauce on the hob.
Whilst you are cooking in your kitchen you need access these three areas pretty easily and directly. If more than one person works in the kitchen at any one time, you also need to consider how that would work for these three areas too.
We’d suggest that the maximum distance between these three items is no more than twenty five feet, but also no less than ten, because a short distance can cause people to trip over each other and this is not safe.
Sometimes plumbing can make the positioning of your kitchen triangle very difficult, because of the current set up of the pipe work, but with the complete service you receive through Bettinsons Kitchens Leicester, we can support you with contacts to help make any essential changes during the early stages of planning your beautiful new kitchen.
