The idea is to have the old design fall into place with creative designs that have been implemented in most modern homes. Domestic kitchen design planning was a planning idea implemented to add to functionality to a kitchen. It was however restricted to fit only a small area therefore this inspired many planners to get creative. Domestic kitchen planning conveyed the three elements of a cooking area: preparation, cooking and storage. With this, the planning of the kitchen was made in such a way that the three distinct elements could not obscure each other while working. This means the preparation was in a different compartment for ease of setting out the ingredients and for quick movement. The cooking area was designed adjacent to the preparation room to facilitate easier movement of the raw food that was ready to be cooked. The storage room was split into two compartments in such a way that the two sections for preparations were both fitted with their own shelves for storage of uncooked and prepared cooked food. The storage room had to be set up in an open area so that cooked foods could be kept under the right conditions. This whole arrangement constituted domestic designs which for the better part is also used in modern kitchens. The only difference is that the compartments for storage have been mechanically reconstructed to form a refrigerator compartment.
With all these functions in place the domestic kitchen was arranged in different architectural designs. One of them is the corridor design. In this particular one, all the cabinets were placed in a single file. This is mostly found in small rooms such as hostels or studios or work areas where space is limited. It creates room by allowing people to serve themselves without taking turns. The double-file kitchen is another design that has two rows of kitchen cabinet on both sides and the cooking area on one side while the storage area on the opposite side.
The third one is the u-shaped kitchen designed in such a way that the sink or washing area sits at the base of the U design and the rest of the sections face the wall. This design is often common in many homes, due to its reachable design. The L design or the triangular design is an excellent kitchen dimension especially if you are planning on expanding the cabinet areas.
