Vertical storage maximizes small spaces. Wall cabinets, shelves, a kitchen hood, and efficient lighting design can turn even small kitchen interiors into beautiful, visually spacious, and modern.

A working triangle is one of the modern kitchens’ most effective ergonomic ideas. A stove-fridge-sink triangle allows unobstructed and fast movements while cooking and cleaning. Eighteen feet or 6 meters are an excellent total length of the triangle sides.

Consider such furniture placement, so you have free space between kitchen appliances, cabinets, and dining furniture for ergonomic kitchen design. At least 3 feet or one meter of free space in front of a dishwasher and an oven makes kitchen interiors functional and comfortable. 3-ft space in front of kitchen cabinets and 2-3 feet from a kitchen hood vertically sound functional and ergonomic for modern kitchens.
