4 Tips To Create The Ultimate Stress-free Kitchen

At Pine Tree Lane, we want you to get the most out of your custom kitchen and we start by determining the best possible kitchen layout to suit your requirements.

We have listed four factors to keep in mind when planning your kitchen renovation or remodeling:

  1. Start With The Work Triangle

The concept of a ‘work triangle’ was first developed in the 1920’s in America to optimise the functionality of the modern kitchen design. The triangle aims to reduce movement between the stove top, fridge and sink so you can prepare your meals more efficiently.

  1. Position According To Function

When designing your kitchen, it is important to place appliances where they are going to be used. The dishwasher should be close to the sink in order for the plates to be easily rinsed before loading. For the same reason, a coffee and tea station should be next to a tap and close to the fridge. There are various minor adjustments that can make a significant difference to the making a kitchen functional and your overall experience as a user.

  1. Consider The Flow

Even in a big kitchen, it is very important to think of how many people will be using the space. A space of at least 900mm between kitchen cabinets and 1200mm where the door of an oven or dishwasher needs to open is recommended for an unrestricted and optimal user experience.

  1. Make Clean-up Easy

A few small points can make all the difference in creating a comfortable and efficient work area in your kitchen. Make sure that you have a bin near your main prep area. Allow for a cupboard under, over or next to a sink for storage and access to cleaning materials. Ensure that your recycling bins and main waste bin are easily accessible and close to the back door to simplify the removal of waste.

Our custom made kitchens are tailored to your requirements to ensure you have all that you need for the best kitchen design and a relaxing experience.
