Work triangles are an important concept in kitchen design as the size, shape and location of these elements can have a huge effect on how well the kitchen functions. For the most efficient layout, its recommended that the appliances should be placed as such that the distance between any two of them is no less than three feet and no more than seven feet, with the total of the triangle sides measuring no less than twelve feet. A huge distance between the appliances means extra step and shorter distance means a cramped workspace.
