Ask a Designer: The Work Triangle

 

What is the work triangle?

The work triangle is based on three appliances. It’s the sink, the refrigerator and the cook top. If you have double ovens that it’s not part of the triangle that is out of the way, I mean, when you think about it once you pop something in the oven, you’re not checking on it all the time.

In the National Kitchen and Bath Association has some certain recommendations on what you can do or what you shouldn’t do with those triangles, like not having a traffic pattern, cross it and suppose to be a maximum of 26 ft. for all three legs, not more than 9 ft. per leg and at least 4 ft. minimum. It just means, they don’t need real escapes to … you just get some kind of weeks for a refrigerator, free milk and things like that.
