Kitchen Design & Remodeling

What is the work triangle and why is it important?

The kitchen work triangle refers to the area from the refrigerator to the cooking range to the sink—the three points are the three corners of the triangle. There should be easy movement between the three places—and there shouldn’t be too much distance between them. Basically, the work triangle creates a more efficient work space.

What is the best place for a kitchen sink?

The sink should be within easy reach of the refrigerator and cooktop/range since you use them often. It should also be near the trash. Keep in mind that there should be about 20 – 30 inches of counter space on either side. The layout of your kitchen will affect whether it should be placed against a wall or in the island.

How much is a kitchen renovation?

The cost of a kitchen remodel depends largely on the scope of the project, among other factors (materials you want for appliances and countertops, the size of the room, etc.). A simple remodel with cabinet replacement will cost less than a complete makeover with new cabinets, countertops, flooring, lighting, and backsplash. According to Remodeling magazine’s 2013 Cost vs. Value Report, in this area, the average for a major kitchen remodel is $51,044 ($103, 317 for an upscale project) and $17,476 for a minor remodel.

What is integrated kitchen design?

Integrated kitchen design hides appliances or blends them in naturally with the rest of the room—it creates a clean, uncluttered look and can help modernize a space. It has become more common in kitchens of all different styles and sizes.


What are the benefits of MDF cabinet doors?

MDF cabinets doors are easy to clean, don’t fade easily, are sturdy and strong, have a flat, smooth surface, and can easily be painted or varnished. Because MDF doesn’t have the natural look of wood (with knots, rings, etc.), it provides a more sleek, modern look.

How are engineered veneer cabinets made?

Engineered wood includes wood products that are made by binding particles, fibers, or veneers of wood together with adhesives to form composite materials. Engineered products are made from the same woods used to make lumber. Whole logs are typically used for veneers.
