How to Plan a Kitchen Workflow That Works

Before starting anything else, kick off your kitchen remodel with a space plan. Picking out all the pretty things is the fun part, but function comes first, and that means deciding on a workflow and traffic plan that’ll work for your lifestyle.

Here’s a few tips offered by Houzz

First Determining Function
Deciding on the right layout for your kitchen is a personal decision — each individual or family uses the kitchen differently. Think about your workflow in terms of everyday function and social use.

Put together a wish list, then look it at against your space you have. Move onto to the locations of large appliances like the refrigerator, oven, and then the sink and dishwasher.

Now move onto the Counterspace
A few places to focus on is to have sufficient space on either side of the sink and stove. The other would be around the refrigerator, so there is room to set down items when either loading in groceries or taking out items. If you have an island in the kitchen that is can be a great counterspace bonus area.

Walk around space and flow

A good rule of thumb is making the walkway for a double-sided workspace a minimum of 4 feet wide — just avoid placing appliances directly across from each other. For a single-sided workspace, stick to 3 feet minimum.
