Workflow – Convenience
A well-thought out kitchen can save a lot of work. This is because everything is stored where you need it and within easy reach. This shortens distances and ensures ergonomic work and a good workflow.
For optimal workflows it’s a good idea to divide the kitchen into five zones.
All kitchen types can have optimal workflows
Every kitchen can be divided into five kitchen zones, as above, regardless of size or shape.
For right-handed users, consumables, non-consumables, cleaning, preparation and cooking should be laid out clockwise.
For left-handed users, in the reverse order.
The preparation zone is the main work area and should be a minimum of 900mm wide. This will ensure there is enough worktop space to make cooking easy and enjoyable.
