Title:Kitchen Planning Standards
Author(s):Ranney, Elizabeth M.
Contributor(s):McCollough, Helen E.; Scheick, W.H.; Kennedy, Maxine H.
Abstract:The purpose of this circular is to provide standards for designing and judging plans for moderate-cost kitchens using factory-made equipment. In this study, "kitchen" refers to an area containing the appliances, storage cabinets, counters and work area necessary to prepare meals. The kitchen may be a room in itself - or part of a room. This publication results from a cooperative investigation* to determine kitchen and laundry design standards for the small basementless house. To form a sound basis for these standards, two types of information were needed: 1) space requirements for storage cabinets and equipment, and for the worker; 2) knowledge of how kitchen planning principles established to date are being used in actual house plans. Cabinet space requirements were set up as the first step in this investigation, and findings were published in the Small Homes Council circular C5.31- "Cabinet Space for the Kitchen." Data on kitchen facilities commonly being provided in today's small homes were obtained through a Small Homes Council analysis of mass-produced houses.
