Modular kitchens in Kochi and most other places are these days trending to be straight ones. And we are not surprised. Most people live in an apartment these days, and these apartments don’t have too large kitchen spaces. And what does work the best for a small spaced kitchen space? A straight modular kitchen, of course! So, what are the quirks of a straight modular kitchen?
Let’s have a see!
When a Triangle is a Straight Line
One of the best ways to differentiate a straight kitchen from its counterpart’s or to have a look at its work triangle. The triangle in this kitchen ceases to be this geometric shape, and rather conforms into being a straight line. You will find the stove, refrigerator, and the sink lining up, on quite a surprising note, to form one of the best work triangles ever they sure don’t look so, but when you start using this kitchen, you realize that the distances between these three points in the kitchen are in fact appropriate to let you work very comfortably. Now, isn’t that the sole purpose of a work triangle?
What more should you know about straight kitchens?
- Straight kitchens don’t have the quintessential work triangle; but they do need the three important elements of stove, refrigerator, and sink to be installed at appropriate distances from one another, in order for one to work at peak efficiency in that kitchen.
- Rather than putting too many things on the countertop, it would be better for you to keep it as open a space as possible. Keeping the space free is rather important in a straight kitchen, because you will probably end up putting your stove, as well as other appliances like mixer, oven, etc, on the countertop; this will already take up a lot of space, and you will need some space free to cook as well!
- Straight kitchen aren’t usually the biggest of kitchens. So, you will need to apply creative methods in order to increase the storage space as much as possible. One of the things you could try is, making your cabinets on the taller side. This will maximize whatever little space you have in there.
- There’s a reason why we say that straight kitchens are usually ones with smaller spaces; it’s because it works great for smaller areas, while not so great for the alternative. Imagine having your work triangle be a straight line, and because it’s a large kitchen that straight line would be a too long one. You wouldn’t want to walk that long pathway, to and fro from one point to another, multiple times a day, especially if you’re cooking in a hurry!
