One idea when it comes to upgrading your kitchen is to make the most of the storage space you have available. The stove, the sink, and the refrigerator all have their own storage zones. These parts of your kitchen are so important that they are often referred to collectively as the work triangle. Let’s learn more about it right now!
Around the Stove
First up, let’s focus on the area around the stove. You can have a galley-design or a U-shaped-design. Either way, all of them need to use the work triangle in a natural and streamlined way. Since the stove is where you will spend the bulk of your time cooking, you will also want to make sure the design facilitates that activity. One cabinet can go by one side of the stove, and a second cabinet can go by the other end of the range. That way, you can have dedicated places for stovetop items and oven items. A narrow kitchen cabinet can help you store and keep track of your baking sheets. One of the most annoying problems to deal with in the kitchen is too much clutter. Expanding the countertop can give you more options and opportunities to experiment with cooking new meals this holiday season.
Around the Sink
Now let’s move onto the area around the sink. Start here by thinking about the cabinets you want to use. Whether the cabinets are light or dark, that choice is up to you. Also, the dishwasher should be positioned as close to the sink as possible. Don’t keep small appliances on the countertops when they aren’t in use; find other places to put them until you need them again. A drying rack and a trash drawer can also make your kitchen more functional. You may be wondering where knives and cutting boards belong. They should go between the sink and the refrigerator.
Around the Fridge
Now let’s take a closer look at the work zone around the fridge. The refrigerator needs to be close to where your staging point for groceries is. After all, it might take you a little while to be able to put all of your food and other cold items away. Consider placing the pantry next to the refrigerator, as well. Dry ingredients, mixing bowls, and baking utensils can all be kept close together, which makes baking cakes or other desserts even easier.
