Mills Pride Kitchen Cabinet Idea
THE COOKING CENTER around the range requires 12″ minimum on one side of the range, and 15″ to 24″ on the other side, again with 12″ minimum to the nearest corner. Microwaves and built-in ovens should have at least 15″ to 18″ counter space on the right side (assuming the door is hinged on the left side). THE STORAGE CENTER around the refrigerator needs 15″ to 18″ on the handle side of the refrigerator, to set food. THE MIXING/PREPARATION CENTER should be handy to pans, bowls and utensils, and should consist of at least 42″ to 84″ of free counter space. If space permits, some designers also include a serving center–another 36″ to 84″ of free counter space to set bowls and pans.
