Kitchen Psychology – Introverted vs Extroverted Clients
This is food for thought in the layout planning of the kitchen design process:
There are many types of kitchen layouts that can be designed in a space. Taking note of the clients “expression” and/or psychology can be a key to where the client is placed in one or all of the working triangles.
For example, introverted personalities do not like to ‘be watched” while cooking, preparing, and or cleaning up. Positioning these individuals in the working triangle with their back to the public areas, provides safety and security for them. They can always turn around and talk to the visitors without eye contact. It is not “rude” but it is just the way it is.
On the other hand, if the client is extroverted, theatrical, and or a story teller, the client position in the working triangle should be facing the doors, and the public areas, so that they can perform and be the center of the working triangle nucleus.
