Ergonomics & Staff Mobility _ An ergonomically designed kitchen is one where staff can stand in just one spot and carry out most of their chores with least walking, turning, reaching and bending. Additionally, ergonomics decrease fatigue levels, discomfort and decrease possibilities of injury in the kitchen. A well_arranged kitchen allows your staff to move easily around without bumping into each other. This promotes an efficient and well ordered kitchen especially during the rush periods.
Another aspect to take into consideration is the appliances you will be using in the kitchen, and this is greatly dependent on the number of people in your home. If you have a large family you will require a larger area space with more effective equipment and storage. Items, such as dishwashers and refrigerators, must be chosen with care as they can enhance your kitchen design. To do this you must properly plan your kitchen space and identify how much money you can comfortably spend.
