TomI always find these posts confusing because I can’t tell if the images are highlighting the mistakes (which I can’t see) or showing how to properly execute the issue described (which, if so, they seem subtle). For example, #9 seems like an example of “too trendy”, while #4 seems to be relatively well lit for a “poor lighting” example.Which is it?SamanthaHello!!Loved the Post!Very helpful!SamanthaKunchu MPvery niceshazMy heart got stuck with the 7th Don’t choose a wrong kitchen island.and going the prepare the same on my new home …….AndrewLove kitchen #1!

My husband and I are renovating our kitchen and we have a decent amount of space to work with. I didn’t know about the kitchen triangle, but now that I’m aware of it, it totally makes sense. The last place I lived in had hardly any counter space so I’m thinking maybe we can put in an island. Awesome advice!Zubair ِArshadYour website is really cool and this is a inspiring article. Thank you so much.Jack MooreThese are some really good tips! As an amateur carpenter, I am amazed when people completely ignore the kitchen triangle, and then complain that their kitchen is inconvenient. But the most important thing to remember when renovating a kitchen is #9; don’t go too trendy. Think about what was remarkably popular in design even only two or three years ago. And then think about how tacky that is all considered now. So make sure to design a space that is going to look nice, and continue to look nice for a while.Will SmithHow do you count legs in a triangle? I must have missed that day in school. Thanks for nothing.The DogThey’re suggesting that you count the total sum length of the legs of the triangle. Sink to range 5 feet. Fridge to range 6 feet. Sink to fridge 4 feet. Total would be 15 feet, which is within the 10 – 25 feet guideline.

Production:  Some islands include a sink and/or stove.  This turns the island into a productivity area.  I’ve had an island with a sink and it’s very, very handy.  However, I’m not so keen about islands with a stove because the drop-down hood impedes the openness of the kitchen.

Islands that obstruct the flow of traffic to and from the sink, refrigerator, stove and primary workstations will create bottlenecks. An island should be at least 4 feet long and 2 feet deep, but it also must have room for people to move and work around it. Specialists say that unless your kitchen is at least 8 feet deep and 12 feet long, you shouldn’t even consider an island.

If your kitchen layout includes an island, it’s nice to put either the cooktop or sink in it to create an efficient workspace. We’re personally not a fan of having a hulking vent hood smack dab in the middle of the kitchen, so putting a sink there is preferable.

You’ll definitely want to give some thought to your kitchen layout when incorporating an island.  Why?  Because an island can actually impede workflow.  For example, if a you have the stove one one side of the kitchen and the sink on the opposite end of the kitchen with the island in between, you don’t enjoy the efficient triangle kitchen flow.

Incorporating sinks or stovetops into the surface of the island is one way to spread the workflow throughout the kitchen. Installation can be tricky, so pay attention to details like ventilation and plumbing. This will require running downward (most common in islands) or overhead venting (which can be expensive), and allocating extra space to in-cabinet pipes.

It’s no surprise islands are so popular.  In fact, most new kitchens are design to accommodate an island.  They’re great because they offer more workspace, counterspace, storage all without impeding flow too much (at least they impede less than peninsula assuming smart kitchen layout design).
