The dimensions of an average kitchen
all about cooking
The kitchen is basically that part of the house where almost everyone’s favorite thing on the planet is prepared: food! In the kitchen they prepare, cook, plate and then serve the dishes in the dining room or area.
For a kitchen to truly serve its intended purpose, it must have the right dimensions. When we say dimensions, we basically refer to the size, that is, the width, length and diameter, and the composition or components of the kitchen. The kitchen must also have adequate space so that people can move faster and easier.
About the average dimensions of the kitchen
The average kitchen in a residential home is typically around 300 square feet, or a room or space that is 30 feet by 10 feet in dimension. It is also possible that this space has equal measurements on all sides, so it will give us a kitchen that has a length of 15 feet and a width of the same measurement as well. These measures would be enough to keep things moving quickly and smoothly in a kitchen.
In the meantime, if a room is not secured to be used as a kitchen, more innovative and space-saving solutions such as kitchen layouts could be opted for. Kitchen layouts are basically what one opts to do when the kitchen area, meaning the place where one prepares and cooks food, will also be placed right in the dining area. That said, we could say here that the kitchen and dining room would be sharing the same space.
There are five types of kitchen designs that a homeowner could use. These are the single file, double file, block or island, L-shaped and U-shaped kitchen layouts. The single-row kitchen, also known as the one-way galley kitchen, is basically an area of kitchen that is aligned against a wall. The double file kitchen, on the other hand, is also called a two-way galley kitchen in which the kitchen elements are divided into two rows. This is usually the design that is used if the dining table is placed right in the center of the room. The block or island kitchen, on the other hand, is a variation of the single row kitchen, in which all the elements of the kitchen are in one line, but they are not placed against the wall but in the center of the area. This is generally used when there is not much space in the residential area and it is just a small apartment or condo unit.
L-shaped and U-shaped kitchens, on the other hand, are said to be the most innovative and space-efficient solution, as workflow tends to be smooth here.
