Working table surface should also note how wide. Outreach human hands, especially women, to future is 85 cm, while to the side between 42cm–62cm.
Storage cabinet also often made without taking into account the size of the fitting. In Kitchens That Work written by Martin and Richard said, that high storage cabinet that can still reach the hand is 2 m. The height of each shelf in the closet any noteworthy, the ideal size is about 65 cm–180cm.
The distance of the circulation corridor between the work area and the others, one also needs to be aware of. Too narrow will make the kitchen feel cramped and uncomfortable. Still from the Kitchens That Work mentioned, that the optimal distance should be applied is 94cm.
The next area is the area of the dishwasher (kitchen sink). Imelda in his series on styling your home: dining room wrote, that the height of the sink should between 70 cm–80 cm from the floor. So users don’t have to lean forward to reach the base of the tub.
