In the last Design Tips we beat up on the work triangle a bit and talked about work centres and how they need to relate to each other. I'm feeling a little grumpy today and want to go after the stodgy old rules a bit more.
There is a sneaky solution to this. In the next drawing the tall unit is recessed into the corner. Let's not worry about how much space this wastes for now, but rather focus on how it allows us to maintain a work flow from one side of the wall-oven to the other. It's a great solution for the right situation, but an expert's eye is needed. I try to avoid it whenever possible.
