For a comfort of spaces, in the design of a residential kitchen the choice of the position of the elements and the accuracy of the details are particularly decisive for the use of the same.
In fact the kitchen is a fundamental element for the home and configured for the preparation of meals. In some cases it may be a dedicated area of the living room.
To be functional, a kitchen needs a minimum length of 2.40 - 2.70 m, equipped with at least one window that helps the room ventilation.
In the interaction between the rooms of the house, the kitchen is useful to place it in direct connection with:
Entrance : it is useful to allow the unloading of the shopping, rather than throwing the bin
Living room: it is important that it has direct access to the place where meals are eaten to facilitate transit.
Food Storage: food preservation
Cupboard: storage of dishes

Based on the composition and the space we have available, different types of kitchen are distinguished.
For reasons related to functionality, the elements are mostly arranged along a single wall, otherwise they can be positioned in a mirror-like manner, rather than forming a U.
In some cases, an island part can be added to these solutions, placed in the center of the room rather than a peninsula.
When designing, it is useful to keep the work cycle in mind, to allow you to move around easily.
Taking into account the following minimum measures in relation to the ergonomics of spaces, it is generally a good idea to try to relate also based on the time of use of the same.
In the following diagram we see how to relate, identifying the type of use percentages of the same.
Obviously, based on our habits and particular attitudes, we can vary the percentages of use, without prejudice to the functional relationship, to better customize it.
