The "Work Triangle"

  1. Make your kitchen match your style! Lets be honest, as home builders, we don't supply your furniture, we aren't helping you pick wall art, one of the few parts of your home we leave ready for you to use is your kitchen. A lot of choices go into a kitchen and we are here to make sure your kitchen matches your style. Keep this in mind with your cooking style. Do you love a hearty stew? Maybe look at a traditional kitchen with stained cabinets to give that cozy feel. Trendy salads more your style? Load up on whites and greys.
  2. The "Work Triangle" The work triangle is a concept that is widely known among architects and home plan designers. It basically boils down to minimizing steps between your various work centers.  Moving a blazing hot cast iron pan from the cook top to the oven?  Adding rinsed vegetables to a pot? Walking boiling pasta to the strainer in the sink? In any of these circumstances, you want to make these moves quickly! This is even more important in today's open floor plans.
  3. Where are you going to eat it? Today's open and versatile floor plans often create multiple eating areas within a home. Use this to your advantage when serving. having guests over? Put chips and dip or other appetizers on your large bar. Sitting down with the family for weeknight put-whatever-is-in-the-fridge-in-a-pot special? Put some parsley on it, make up a name and serve in your breakfast nook. Smoking a turkey for the in laws on Thanksgiving? Sounds like the perfect time to use that formal dining room!
