Designing a kitchen set requires a mature measurement, not just a beautiful model and color. Good interior designers have an ideal size standard based on ergonomics. Ergonomics itself is the study of the dimensions of the human body. In the design process, the size of the kitchen set should be adjusted to the human size. For standardization, the average human height used by the benchmark is 170cm-180cm. Thus, the height of the kitchen set should not be more 227.5cm. The goal is that adults do not have trouble reaching the top spot or bottom drawer of the kitchen set.
Illustration of measurement of height, length, and width of kitchen set that adapted to human body. The kitchen sets will be divided into three: the top storage cabinet, the flat, open kitchen table the stove, and the sink in the center, and the drawers at the bottom. Top cabinet: The bottom of this upper cabinet should not be lower than 82.5cm from the floor. That way, when the closet door is open, the adults can immediately see what is inside. If it is too low, adult heads can stumble while doing activities such as slicing, blending, and others in the flat, open kitchen table
Center: The surface of the flat, open kitchen table stove, and sink to wash the dishes should not be lower than 62.5cm from the floor. If it is too low, the adult should bend down during the move so as to make him tired quickly. With a height of 62.5cm, adults can do things like cooking, washing dishes, slicing the food in an upright and relaxed position.
Bottom: As a rule of thumb, there should be at least 120cm of empty space between the cabinet and the person standing in front of it. The goal, when the drawer is open, there is still enough room for people in the kitchen to move.
