Only by conforming to the operating habits can it be done in one go and improve the efficiency of cooking. The division of functional areas according to this step determines the location of the cooking area, cooking area, and cleaning area. Regardless of the size of the kitchen, the three layouts can ensure that the three major layouts form a perfect golden triangle movement line and reduce unnecessary walking.
