The main thrust of a practical kitchen layout has traditionally been focused on the working triangle design. This was typically where the stove (oven), sink and fridge formed the three points of a triangle.
Despite the fact that the principle of the triangle still does work, gone are those days when the kitchen was hidden at the back of your house. Today, open-plan living designs mean the kitchen is now more likely to be the home's focal point where family members converge.
On-line Resources: This Old House: This website is a DIYer's dream. There are videos and tips on probably every aspect of renovating a kitchen. Kitchens.com: A wealth of information on everything you ever wanted to know about kitchens, including information on \"greening your kitchen.\" Better Homes and Gardens has an extensive section on renovating your kitchen including an \"inspiration gallery\" to give you some ideas. The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation: CMHC has an excellent website for any renovation or home purchase. The kitchen renovation area has downloadable charts you can use for reference guides as you go about your renovation planning. Appraisal Institute of Canada: The Renova section of this website allows you to input the cost of your renovation and it will calculate how much of a return you would receive if you sold your home.
During the renovation: Assumptions: One of the breakdowns in communication between homeowner and contractor is in assumptions made by one party or the other. For instance, one woman had purchased bathroom sinks and fixtures for a brand new home. The contractor saw that the powder room fixture would be outfitted with separate taps and a faucet and so drilled three holes in all the sinks because he assumed that all the fixtures were the same. Unfortunately, they weren't and the homeowner had to replace the other fixtures to match the holes.
