Kitchen Design

The design of domestic kitchens is a relatively new discipline based on Ergonomics (an invented word for the study of workplace design: erg [energy] + economics) although the first ideas on developing the “perfect” kitchen go back to 1843 when a Catharine Beecher published “A Treatise on Domestic Economy”.

Although it wasn’t until the last 50 years that real progress has been made with identification of the “golden triangle” or, more prosaically, the “kitchen work triangle” which uses the three main functions of storage, preparation and cooking (first noted by Catharine Beecher) to create the most ergonomically efficient positioning of different functions. The fridge, sink and cooker make the three points of the triangle and the idea is to keep these as close together to minimize the amount of walking required.
