Everything is easier – and protects the body

There’s heat in the kitchen: Rinsing food, taking ingredients from cupboards, filling pots, operating appliances, washing hands. It only makes sense to put short travel paths at the top of the wish list. Because this allows smooth workflows while saving time and energy. Do you enjoy it when kitchen tools and ingredients are easy to find? This is due to well-organized cabinets and pull-outs. With cleverly designed drawers and revolving pull-outs, you can easily reach deep into cabinets and put your kitchen space to best use.  

The human being is the measure of kitchen planning

An ergonomic kitchen is should be tailored to your height. This way, kitchen furniture, oven and microwave can be easily filled and cleared at eye level. The countertop should be planned with your back in mind, too. Studies recommend placing this around 10 cm below the individual’s elbow height. So take measurements before your consultation with the retailer! Also keep in mind: For a good, comfortable view of pots and pans, the cooktop may be slightly lower than your worktop. Particularly important in this connection is the selection of the right kitchen faucet.

Operating comfort is the crux of ergonomics

In an optimally equipped kitchen, you can manage and handle everything very easily and intuitively. This is particularly useful if things have to go quickly, or if you happen to have your hands full. Water control at the touch of a button and controls that are easy to reach are ergonomically useful and mean added comfort in the everyday kitchen work.
