The size of your triangle is important
“Each side of the triangle should be no smaller than 120 cm and no larger than 270, and ideally the sum of the sides should not be less than 390 cm and no larger than 790 cm,” says Myers. “Not too small and not too big! This will ensure that your workspace is practical, comfortable and large enough – but not big enough to spend a lot of time walking from one point to another. ”
Rob Cash, designer and owner of Kutchenhaus Bristol and Bath, agrees. “The reason the work triangle is so valued is that it is the most passable path inside the kitchen and therefore it is important to make it as compact as possible,” he says. “You don’t have to worry too much that it’s an exact triangle, but you don’t want these three devices to be too far apart.”
