Your sink and your kitchen distribution.
The kitchen has at least three defined zones: the cooking zone, the washing zone and the storage area. Together, they make up a triangle enclosing all of users most frequent movements.
Every job in the kitchen involves a multitude of movements and small tasks, and the equipment must be optimally distributed to make life easier and avoid useless efforts.
The space available and its configuration will dictate the distribution of your kitchen. Listed below are the most common types of layout with tips on how to optimise space according to those requirements.
The perfect solution for long, narrow rooms, especially those less than 2 metres wide. If you do not have a big countertop, select a Teka sink with a single bowl or with a small drainer. Another good option is the single undermount models, providing you a perfect solution; a big bowl and the countertop that can be used as a drainer thanks to the available Teka aceesories.
If your kitchen is long and wide, we suggest you lay out your furniture in two parallel rows. This option is also suitable if you have two doors facing on to each other, because the central zone can serve as an aisle.
In this case, a sink occupying a good part of the worktop area will emphasise the length of the room, so select the 1 ½ bolws 1 drainer configuration as it is the most balanced and functional design.
The furniture is arranged along two adjoining walls. This is a good solution for medium-size and large kitchens, leaving an auxiliary space for daily meals.
Tekas corner sinks and those others suitable for corner areas will help to give unity to this kind of layout.
An ideal layout for spacious, square rooms. Equipment is installed around three walls, making for maximum convenience when two or more people are working in the kitchen.
Any sink is suitable for this configuration, but we suggest a fully accessorised model with several, different-sized bowls, that can give you the best performance every time.
Equipment is installed perpendicular to one of the walls so the centre of the room becomes the focal point. This layout gives a personal look to your kitchen while creating different spaces, and is suitable for a breakfast bar.
Kitchens of more generous dimensions can be fitted with a central island, though this requires the under-floor installation of water, gas and electricity.
The best sink in this case would be an integrated or undermounted model, where Teka offers the most advanced solutions in design, functionality and ease of cleaning.
