Alternatively to the kitchen triangle, work zones are another way of planning your layout that involves grouping together cabinets and appliances that will be used for similar purposes.
For example, a preparation zone may include drawers for knives, peelers, other cutlery, a large counter space, and trash. The cleaning/dish zone may include the sink, dishwasher, and cabinet storage for plates, bowls, cups, mugs, silverware, and other eating utensils.
Another zone could include a wet bar and storage space for entertainment purposes. This could include items such as paper plates, plastic cups, alcohol, mixing tools, and other party supplies.
