As you can see I have a very small triangle, but it works really well.
I was convinced that I would hate my tiny 80's kitchen, but figured that we could live with it for a while since the rest of the house was near perfect. I've grown to love being only one or two steps from each station. I'm standing in the door facing the entry way and directly behind me, what used to be a coat closet is an equipment pantry. In the kitchen to the right is a smaller pantry that houses all of our snacks and baking supplies.
Most kitchens can be made to work with a bit of creativity and keeping uncluttered.
