Kitchen and Farmhouse Design Plans
Many housewives actually walk miles while doing their kitchen work because the stove, sink and work table are far apart in their great big kitchens. That was the way especially with many old-fashioned kitchens.
But recently the housewives and the architects and the engineers and the home economics specialists got at it and began talking and planning con- venient kitchens. So modern kitchens in general are better workshops and kitchen jobs can be done in less time, and with less effort.
