The Distance Needed Between a Cooktop & Kitchen Sink

Save

The layout of a kitchen is based on the kitchen work triangle consisting of the distance between the cooktop, fridge and sink, as these are central points in a kitchen.

Measurements

  • The total distance of the work triangle should be no more than 20 feet. The distance between the cooktop and sink should not be less than 4 feet and not more than 8 feet. Do not place the sink or cooktop in the corner and there should be at least 16 inches between them and the corner

Function

  • The optimal distance between cooktop and kitchen sink allows for efficient movement between the two centers.

Types

  • An L-shaped kitchen layout uses two walls with the refrigerator at one end, cooktop on the other end, and sink in the middle. The U-shaped kitchen layout uses three walls with the fridge and cooktop located on opposite walls, and the sink in the middle.
