Appliances that tend to be used frequently are then free to stand on the surrounding work surfaces, brought onto the central island when they need to be used. Not everybody, however, is blessed with a kitchen large enough to accommodate a kitchen island. In smaller houses the galley kitchen is the norm and, again, the ‘working triangle‘ needs to be taken into account when implementing suitable kitchen decorating ideas. In most galley kitchens the hob is along one wall with the sink directly opposite and work surfaces either side of both hob and sink. This means the main working area is the triangle within the centre of the kitchen. In Western kitchens, regardless of the level of cooking skills the kitchen user has, each kitchen houses very similar appliances. There are certain items that are found in all kitchens, such as washing machine, fridge, cooker - either fitted or free-standing - sink unit and fitted cupboards with work surfaces built-in.
The three most used items in the kitchen are your kitchen sink, refrigerator, and stove and are the three points of a triangle in a kitchen. When doing a kitchen renovation it is best if these three items are positioned at the three points of a triangle. By doing this it will give you a lot of room to move around in your kitchen. In a kitchen, it is recommended to have three functional areas for food storage, food preparation, and clean up.
Doing your own custom kitchen island or having a professional do it for you ultimately results in big savings which you can use to customize your kitchen island design even while it is still on the design phase. Having a custom kitchen island can provide your family with more work space not to mention eating space. You can outfit your kitchen island design with storage drawers and cabinets for kitchen utensils and a myriad of other things in order to maximize the space used up by kitchen island after it is constructed. If the fancy strikes you, you can even opt for a mobile kitchen island design which you can roll out to the patio for those times when your family wants to enjoy a barbecue at the backyard! Or you can have a mobile and fixed kitchen island if you desire.
The Work Triangle: In the past, kitchen designs were done around a work triangle; it determined the position of the sink, refrigerator, and the range. A good kitchen design should make the distance between the three appliances comfortable because most kitchen work revolves around them. If the distance is much, whoever will be cooking will become tired trotting between them, and if too close the work area will be cramped. There are three major layouts for the work triangle; the galley, I-shaped and the u-shaped. The u-shaped layout places the three appliances on three different walls. In the I-shaped layout, one appliance is placed on one wall while the other two are placed on another. If you are working on very tight space, you can have all the appliances arranged along the same wall thus the name galley.
