Recommended distance between kitchen work areas below. Note that we are making a distinction between work aisles (which take you from one work area to another) and walkways (which move traffic through the kitchen).
  • 42" Minimum: In a single-cook kitchen
  • 48" Minimum: In a kitchen where more than one cook may be working.
No maximum distance recommendations.
