Kitchen Guide

One of the guiding principles behind good kitchen design is balance. A well-designed kitchen has a good mix of storage and worktop spaces. Its layout allows cooking, washing and food preparation to take place smoothly with minimal fuss.

Kitchen Planning

First, ask yourself these questions:

1. What type of cooking will you do?

2. What kind of food are you going to store?

3. Do you prefer an open layout or a closed kitchen?

Common Kitchen Layouts

The work triangle is an ergonomic zone connecting your wash area (kitchen sink), food storage (fridge) and cooking area (cook top and oven). Once you’ve outlined your work triangle and decided on your appliances, here are some useful kitchen layouts that you may consider.

Kitchen Type Description Layout
Single-wall kitchen
(suitable for small homes)
The single-wall kitchen can effectively keep all appliances and cooking essentials within reach. While the work triangle is not evident here, its principle of keeping an ideal distance between different work zones remains.
Galley kitchen
(suitable for most kitchens)
The galley layout is a favourite among chefs. It makes good use of tight spaces and provides
flexibility for accessing kitchen appliances and storage.
L-shaped kitchen
(suitable for larger flats with
an open layout)
This layout extends itself for guests to mingle in the cooking area. An island can also be incorporated to provide additional worktop or
seating space. This open layout will benefit from a powerful extraction hood to keep odours and oil out of your other living areas.

Help with Hoods

Cooker hoods remove excess smoke, steam, grease and fumes while you cook, thereby making sure that your kitchen and the rest of your home smell clean and fresh.

About Air Recirculation

Catering for HDB homes, Bosch extractor hoods feature a powerful, energy-efficient air recirculation mode that reduces grease particles from dispersing and settling on everything in your flat.

Slimline Hood (60 or 90 cm)

Thin and flat in design with a slide out section, this is ideal for integrating into your kitchen cabinets and will be almost invisible.

Chimney Hood (60 or 90 cm)

Wall-mounted hoods are generally mounted above the hob, on the wall between the wall units. This type of cooker hood fits beautifully into the line of your kitchen units whilst providing effective ventilation that you’ll barely see – but you’ll notice the amazing effect.

The Right Hood

Match your hood with your kitchen to keep your flat smelling clean and fresh.The right hood replaces air in your kitchen ideally 10 times an hour.

What extraction rate do I need from my hood?

When choosing a hood, always match its air delivery power to the size of your kitchen. An effective extractor should be able to replace the air in your kitchen 10 times an hour.

For open layout kitchens, identify the location of your hood and estimate your kitchen volume in the following manner:

*This formula gives a guiding value to the consumer to calculate the appropriate extraction rate in open-plan kitchens. Always ensure adequate fresh air in the room if the appliance is being operated in exhaust air mode at the same time as room air-dependent heat-producing appliance is being operated.
