Kitchen design

Kitchen sizes and shapes. What’s important?

As we already discussed in our previous blog post – there are three main kitchen zones, that make a “work triangle”. The trick is to position these three points on your kitchen layout so that they are not too far from each other (this would make you walk backwards and forwards more than you need to when carrying out a task) and not too close to each other (this makes for cramped working conditions).

  2. Integrated systems: an integrated solution from the same manufacturer which include both CAD and CAM. For example, IMOS, Cabinet Vision, TopSolid’Wood, etc.

The discussion provided below first and foremost focuses on a furniture design process.

When selecting a CAD system, comparisons are first made between the features offered by them.
