Designing your own kitchen – Part one

The kitchen is the most complex room in our homes, a multitude of actions take place inside it, and each one requires a dedicated space.

The preparing food space is the most important area, let’s see how to organize it rationally.

This space is the base on which we’ll design the furniture distribution in our kitchen and there we must place the three main activities: food processing, cooking and washing.
It’ s essential for these actions to be close and, for us, to have the opportunity move freely with little effort.

We can represent these three elements as the vertices of a triangle, so we can see our working space as a map of our kitchen.
