One of the best ways to make sure that your investment provides you with a good return is to ensure that your renovated kitchen allows you to easily work in it. Many homes have poorly designed kitchens in them, which makes them not very appealing to potential buyers unless they’re willing to renovate the kitchen themselves. One feature that is essential to a well laid out kitchen is what is referred to as the working triangle.

The working triangle takes into account that the most walking you do in your kitchen is between the three major areas: the fridge, the stove, and the sink. These items form a pretty logical relationship if you think about it; the fridge is where you store the food, the stove is where you cook it, and the sink is where you do the washing of produce and the washing up. So you can see that these areas are well used.

Ideally, the working triangle should ideally be a relatively small distance so that you can prepare things without having to walk very far, but still have enough space so that you can move around comfortably in the kitchen. If more than one person usually works in the kitchen, you may want to allow for a larger working triangle. Ideally, the perimeter of a working triangle should be no smaller than 12 feet and no larger than 26 feet.

A good way to make sure that your new kitchen design works well is to make a plan and map out the new layout on paper to see how it works. The best way, however, is to make the investment and hire a kitchen designer to help you make a plan. Kitchen designers have years of training and experience to help you make the most out of the space and budget that you have to work with.

For any home owner who is looking to add value and pizzazz to their home before putting it on the market, updating and renovating the kitchen is usually one of the main targets for renovation dollars. According to the people in the know, like realtors and contractors, dollars spent on kitchen renovations have the potential to return up to 80% of the investment laid out if spent constructively and with a lot of forethought. Plan out your renovating constructively and make sure that your investment brings you the results that you want.
