Just getting the knowledge about different types of kitchen is not enough to plan a good kitchen. There are many problems one face because of some designing errors and some because of homemaker's mistakes. We need to know them..and rectify them to get the desired kitchen for our work and residence.

  • Inadequate base cabinet and wall cabinet storage.
  • No counter beside refrigerator.
  • Poorly placed doors.
  • Inadequate window area.
  • Traffic through work triangle.
  • Inadequate counter space on each side of the sink
  • No counter beside range
  • Insufficient clearance between opposing surfaces.
  • Work triangle too long.
  • Tall appliances block normal progression of work.
  • Drawers and doors interfere with each other.
Solving Design Problems :
  • Use small appliances.
  • Use few major appliances.
  • Use specialized storage. 
  • Use a fold down table or a table that pullouts of the base cabinet for eating.
  • Relocate or eliminate doors & windows. Consider removing a dividing wall to make a large room.
  • Use light colors , no patterns or small patterns. Minimize rough texture or contrast.
  • Use light to eliminate shadows.
So, this was about types of kitchen , problems we face and few solutions for the errors.
