Function First

Do follow tried-and-true guidelines for creating the most efficient layout for your kitchen. Positioning the sink, range, and refrigerator to form a compact work triangle minimizes steps and can be personalized to accommodate your lifestyle. Dual islands help reduce steps in this kitchen, for example, and offer an abundance of work surfaces and space for helpers or guests to gather around. Wide aisles ensure that multiple cooks can maneuver back-to-back and open drawers and doors without interference.
