The Work Triangle or The Work Area: One of the most important aspects of any fitted kitchen and it is also one of the planning areas that should involve input from the cook or chef. There are three main appliances that will condition this area and these are the kitchen, the refrigerator and the sink or waste area. You may well be wondering why, well when you think about it, these are the three most used spots in any kitchen. If any of these areas are too far apart, it can make it difficult to use the kitchen to its full potential. Therefore, the work area or the work triangle should be given the attention it deserves before moving on to the other areas of choosing your kitchen, and that is your first fitted kitchen tip.
Available kitchens: When you walk into any showroom today, you’ll see a wide variety of fitted kitchens displayed under strategically placed bright lights, and you think I must have one of these. A little tip, don’t rush into that decision, and that’s your second fitted kitchen tip. One of the areas to check is the range casing or frame. This is where the doors are attached by hinges that will be used many times every day, and you certainly don’t want to adjust the doors a few weeks after your purchase because some manufacturer decides to cut corners by using scrap wood from the frame, and the hinges and other accessories, such as guides, become loose because the screws used to attach the accessories do not grip properly.
