Kitchen is one of the essential rooms in a house. It is a place to cook our everyday food. With the decoration, we also must focus on its hygiene. It is essential to keep our very clean as we cook there. An unclean kitchen often gives birth to different infectious insection. It is, designed in different style and come in different colors of choice. In modern time, designing a kitchen with advanced techniques and ideas has become a profession around the world.
There are mostly two types of kitchen. A domestic kitchen is, designed mainly for household cooking and need. The other one is a commercial kitchen that we find in restaurants and cafés. The fundamental difference between these two types of the kitchen is, the commercial kitchen is big, equipped with big utensils, high-powered kitchen chimneys.
Modern are very useful nowadays since it can solve all three purpose of a kitchen with a tiny place. People living in apartments have very little space to accommodate. So types of furniture and types of equipment used must be purposeful, taking less space and must be multi-functional. In the year, 1994 a “Building Research Council” was, made to standardize domestic setup in minimum cost. The “kitchen work triangle “was their brain-child. The three main functions of a kitchen are cooking, storage, and preparation. They aimed to plan these three functions scientifically. So that there will be a free space for movement, proper distance from preparation and cooking, a proper place for storage. For these arrangements, there came out with many types of kitchen style, which are very scientific and comfortable for working. They are describing in geometric terms such as:
A Straight-Line Kitchen
In apartments with limited place, we can find this type of kitchen. It works in a straight line where at one end the sink is, placed the gas stove in the middle, and the storage is at another end. If there is extra space, we can place our refrigerator inside the kitchen. It is preferable to have one window inside the kitchen. Most of these modern kitchens have kitchen-chimneys. This chimney helps in exhaust the smoke that generates while cooking. They have a wide pipe associated with it, and they are, connected to the window, which helps the process. We can make cabinets on the wall for storage of extra items. We can also make these cabinets in the lower portion of the straight-line table.
“ L”- Shaped Kitchen
This style of kitchen is, built taking two adjoining walls. On one side, there is the sink, and the rest of the table is, used for keeping the gas stove and the storage purpose.
This style requires a spacious kitchen because they are built taking three walls. It is preferable to keep the cook-top in the middle, to have enough space on both sides.
Double –Row Kitchen
This is a classical style kitchen plan. We make two parallel tables. On the one hand, we can keep the cook-top and the sink, and on the other table, we can use as storage purpose, keeping spices or different crockery sets.
“G”- Shaped Kitchen
It is, an advanced model of the L-shaped kitchen, which is, broken into two halves. In this style, we can get two work triangles.
Hence, the kitchen is, made focusing the various scientific techniques. The color and the decoration of the kitchen must be charming, enough open space should be there; we must also focus on the safety points.
