Get To Know the Six Zones of a Hard-Working Kitchen

As a top-rated choice when searching “kitchen remodeler near me” online, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Ogden stands at the forefront of the evolution of the kitchen space, offering homeowners a highly personalized approach to remodeling that transcends the conventional. This new paradigm in kitchen design is best epitomized by the concept of the six kitchen zones, a methodology that goes beyond the outdated “kitchen triangle” to cater to the modern homeowner’s diverse needs and activities.

Moving Beyond the Kitchen Triangle

The “kitchen triangle,” developed in the 1940s, was designed to minimize the steps between the fridge, oven, and sink to enhance kitchen efficiency. However, as kitchens have grown in complexity and function, this model has become less relevant. In contrast, the six zones approach considers the kitchen as a multipurpose space, dividing it into areas dedicated to preparation, cooking, cleaning, consumables, non-consumables, and leisure. This method not only acknowledges the diverse activities that now occur in the kitchen but also promotes a more organized and efficient layout.

Zones Defined

  1. Preparing for Culinary Creations. The preparation zone is where the culinary journey begins. Ideally situated on a stretch of countertop or a kitchen island, this area is designed to be both functional and engaging, often blending into the leisure zone to allow interaction with family or guests.
  2. The Heart of the Kitchen: Cooking. Situated near the preparation area, the cooking zone houses the hob and oven. This zone benefits from easy access to utensils, pots, and pans, streamlining the cooking process and enhancing the joy of meal preparation.
  3. Effortless Cleaning. Grouping the sink, dishwasher, and waste disposal creates an efficient cleaning zone, simplifying the post-meal cleanup and ensuring the kitchen remains a welcoming space for its next use.
  4. Storing Consumables. A well-organized consumables zone, combining refrigerated food and pantry goods, ensures ingredients are conveniently at hand, simplifying meal preparation and grocery storage.
  5. Non-Consumables at Your Fingertips. The non-consumables zone is dedicated to storing dishes, utensils, and glassware. Strategic placement near the dishwasher simplifies unloading, while proximity to the dining area facilitates serving.
  6. Leisure: The New Kitchen Frontier. Reflecting contemporary lifestyle changes, the leisure zone transforms the kitchen into a hub of social interaction and relaxation, accommodating dining, conversation, and even homework, thereby enriching the kitchen’s role in the home.
