The kitchen layout is the shape that’s made by the arrangement of countertops, major appliances, and storage areas. In the traditional kitchen layout, the floor plan creates what’s known as a “kitchen work triangle.” This is the path you make when moving from the refrigerator, to the sink, to the range to prepare a meal.
