TURNING THE KITCHEN INTO A LUXURY ENVIRONMENT IS ALL ABOUT ADAPTING TO SPACE,
At the heart of every kitchen is a triangle. It doesn’t matter what floor plan you pick, u-shaped or l-shaped, you will find yourself working between three basic points: The refrigerator, the stove, and the sink. The work triangle consists of a logical, ergonomic arrangement of these three work areas to make kitchen work easier and more efficient. At a company like Kohler, understanding this trifecta forms the foundation for ideas to expand into luxury when we consider how to add comfort and functionality into the arrangement. For instance, a real luxury in today’s world is being able to spend more time with loved ones even as you cook; as cooking becomes more of a communal activity kitchens expand to accommodate this trend. Some even have space for two cooks, each with their own complimentary triangular plan to work together simultaneously. The feel of a truly luxury kitchen means one where storage trumps style. So adapt by picking smaller paired doors for cabinetry, rather than larger single doors that can swing out to create obstacles. Once you’ve understood the space, and your culinary and dietary needs, begin to look at the aesthetic components to round out and personalise your kitchen. Let’s take a look at some of the ideas that add beauty to your kitchen environment.
