In addition to our first set of definitions, here you will find a few more key elements to be familiar with that will be sure to come up in your discussion when renovating!
Island: Free standing structure made of cabinetry and a counter top, accessible to all 4 sides. An island is a great space to incorporate a sink or cook top, or great for extra seating!
Peninsula: Same concept as a kitchen island, but attached to a wall and only accessible on 3 sides. A peninsula is a great way to divide 2 rooms, without closing off a space, yet still giving it the open concept feel.
Work Triangle: Placement of the 3 main work stations in your kitchen, minimizing traffic, while maximizing efficiency. The fridge, sink and stove are within 12-26 feet apart total, allowing the chef easy access to all 3 stations when cooking up a storm!
Corbels: Most commonly used as a decorative accent or counter top support, the corbel is typically made out of the same material as the cabinets ( same species of wood) and adds elegance where mounted.
Lazy Susan: A corner cabinet with shelves inside, mounted on a vertical axle that spins, giving you more storage space and easy access to all items inside. Stay tuned for more definitions soon to come!
