Efficient kitchen layouts



Choose the most effective and efficient layout for your kitchen with Dynamic Space Zone planning by Blum.

Dynamic Space Zone planning by Blum is a modernised version of the popular 1950s work triangle. It offers layouts based on five distinct storage zones which are arranged to optimise space and workflow in kitchens of any size and shape.
