Design Rules!

Is the work triangle still relevant?

Even the novice has heard of the work triangle in connection with kitchen design.  It’s the imaginary line between the sink, range and refrigerator. These items need to be thoughtfully placed for efficient use of the space.

Is the work triangle only relevant for small kitchens?

Can we throw out the rule if an island is involved?

Blue is not a good color for the kitchen!

Do you agree with this statement?

Color “psychology” has taught us that not only is blue an appetite suppressant but  food does not look good against it. Does this translate to the kitchen?

Do you have pictures that prove this wrong?

Bathroom sink cabinets should be 34″ high.

This has long been a standard but is changing.  Tall clients often want taller counter heights in their bathrooms but is this a good idea?

We will be discussing these “rules” and more on Wednesday, May 15, 2013.  Join our Twitter discussion by adding #kbtribechat to your tweets between two and three pm eastern time. We look forward to your input!

Here is the transcript for this kbtribechat.

    My last kitchen had a lot of blue in it….I certainly didn’t lose any of my appetite. Being a professional kitchen and bath designer, I “knew” better than to paint my walls blue, but I did it anyway, and it looked great! I actually gained weight at that house! =)
