Layout for modern kitchen

Islands, peninsulas and planned furniture are some of the options to create ergonomics in the environment and thus allow you to take full advantage of the available footage.

However, before defining the layout for modern kitchens, it is necessary to take into account the three main tasks established in the kitchen, and think about the best arrangement to optimize the functions of the environment.

Therefore, it is worth remembering that the kitchen has three main areas: Storage, preparation and cleaning and, respectively, the main elements that make up these spaces are the refrigerator, the stove and the sink.

There are those who defend the arrangement of the three main functions in a triangular shape, in an L or even in a straight line. What really matters is that the layout favors practicality and circulation.

Modern planned kitchens

The joinery is the great ally when it comes to space ergonomics. That’s because it allows residents to make the best use of the precious centimeters of the environment.

Making use of furniture made for the needs of the residents is one of the main advantages when investing in modern planned kitchens. After all, ready-made models purchased in stores may come with more shelves than drawers, and this does not suit the reality of residents.

Therefore, a good carpentry project seeks exactly what is needed by the residents, fitting in with household appliances, small appliances and other utensils that are essential for the residents. See some bespoke joinery to inspire you.
