There’s nowhere to put your casserole as you take it out of the oven and you and the kids are constantly bumping into each other in the kitchen—how frustrating! If this sounds familiar, it sounds like you have a problem with your kitchen’s design.

When designing a kitchen, think about the architectural theory known as the kitchen triangle. It states that the three most frequently-used parts of your kitchen should form a triangle—they are the sink, stove, and refrigerator.
The theory is that you’ll save yourself time by keeping these three features near each other, making your kitchen more functional. It also helps you manage the flow of traffic in your kitchen, avoiding having to double back all the time.
Consider this when designing your own kitchen!
2. Save Space
Often, we need to design a home kitchen in a small space. Luckily, you can maximize your space by using space-saving tips like adding plenty of storage, shelving, and planning your cabinets with care.
Kitchen cookware can take up plenty of space too, so think about trying out stackable pans with removable handles—they are much easier to store in small spaces.
3. Think Long-Term
Your kitchen design needs to be practical not just for today, but for decades to come. Select kitchen features and materials that are long-lasting and of high-quality, so that your kitchen will always look its best.
Think also about the needs of your family—for example, if you plan to have kids in the future, think about a breakfast nook or place your kitchen window in an area where you can observe the kids playing outside.
4. Plan Counter space Near Appliances
It helps to think about the placement of large appliances like the stove, oven, and fridge. After you take food out of the appliance, what are you going to do with it?
Likely, you’ll need to set it down somewhere, especially if it’s something hot out of the oven. For this reason, it helps to make sure there’s counter top space next to each appliance.
This gives you added convenience, making your kitchen more functional.
