Let's plan a kitchen

A guide to successful kitchens...brand new or modernized

Page 2:

Your kitchen

the most important single room you'll ever plan

Why is the kitchen the most vital room in the home?

Many reasons. The average homemaker spends 60% of her time there. It's the true heart of the household. The average family eats at least one meal together there . . . often more. It's the room that builds memories for children, that symbolizes warmth and love and hospitality.

How well the kitchen is planned, how attractive its appearance . . . has a great psychological importance to successful family life.

Recent years have brought about tremendous improvements in kitchen design, and in work-saving appliances. This booklet is designed to spell out the basics in good kitchen planning. Use it as a guide to make the most of your kitchen . . . whether you are planning a new home, or bringing an old kitchen up to date.

Above all, don't hesitate to dream a little! Think past a kitchen to total electric living . . . today's ultimate. Dreams can come true, and without costing more than you can afford. The important thing is start thinking and planning. This booklet will show you how.

Work centers

...the rule of 3

Basically, whenever you work in the kitchen, you are operating in one of three ways: you are either (1) storing or getting out food, (2) cleaning dishes or cleaning food, (3) cooking or serving food. The first and most critical step in good kitchen planning is to make certain these three functions are performed each in its own area with proper equipment and adequate lighting. This grouping of activities saves steps, saves work.

IFood storage center Your minimum requirements include a refrigerator-freezer, wall and base cabinets and counter space, including under cabinet lighting, for setting and preparing food. Important: counter space and refrigerator must be planned together to provide a "landing spot" for food that's stored in, or removed from the refrigerator. If counter is to the left, have a right-opening refrigerator. (And vice versa!) If you have room, a separate freezer may be included in this area.

O Sink and cleaning center Ideally, this area is located between the other two work centers. It should give you room for sink, counter space and storage area for dishes, dishwashing supplies, and utensils. It should have its own overhead lighting. (An automatic dishwasher and a garbage disposer can save long hours of "uncreative" work!)

3 Cook and serve center Minimum requirements: a range and adjacent well-lighted counter space. Wall and base cabinets provide storage space for frequently used utensils. Drawers and wall hooks may be used to store spoons, spatulas and pot holders. Important: when oven and range units are built in separately, there should be counter space adjacent to each.

And if you still have room . . . congratulations! You can add one or more of the 3 supplementary centers that make for additional efficiency and family enjoyment:

1. Dining or eating center . . . with lounge, snack bar or tables and chairs. 2. Mixing center . . . with electric mixer, blender, bowls and related utensils. 3. Menu planning center . . . with storage for recipes and cookbooks, a desk or writing area. Pleasant additions: a family bulletin board and a telephone.

Production line efficiency...with warmth and color
Page 5:

If you are planning a kitchen "from scratch," you will certainly want to explore the exciting possibilities of contemporary color. Appliances in luscious avocado provide the starting point for this distinctively modern kitchen.

The three basic work centers are built around (1) a portable dishwasher, with chopping block top, (2) a no-defrost re-frigerator-freezer, and (3) a free-standing tri-level electric range with self-cleaning oven.

Note that each work area has its own lighting, plus overall ceiling lighting for the whole room.

Carpet on the floor? "Yes," say today's kitchen experts. Pictured is special carpeting that is impervious to grease and water, lets you wipe up spills... and clean with a quick vacuuming.

4 ways to shape up a kitchen

No matter how discouraging an old kitchen may seem, you'll find that it can be redesigned to give you a modern efficient room. This is because virtually any kitchen will lend itself to one of 4 basic patterns.

Provincial kitchen combines classic white appliances with traditional blue.

Note lighted work areas, appliance outlets. Design, a variation of the basic U-shape.

1
Page 7:

U-shaped. This is a very popular kitchen design, because it brings the work centers closer together ... a real step-saver! It's also desirable when there's room for a dining area at the open end. Ideally, you need an open area from 5 to 6 ft. wide between the two sides of the "U". (Often the "U" is broken by a door.)
Page 8:

An example of lighting planned to add drama as well as function.
Page 9:

L-shaped. This is often an excellent arrangement for a large kitchen. The work centers are arranged continuously along two adjoining walls. Traffic by-passes the work areas, and eating space can be planned in the other corner.

Pictured: L-shape kitchen glows with Mediterranean warmth. A free-standing electric range (with self-cleaning oven) gets dramatic impact through alcove placement.
Page 10:

Island cook-top in variation of "corridor" kitchen. Light for range units comes from the ventilator hood. Note compact arrangement ... vet room for double wall ovens.

Page 11:

Corridor. A good plan for smaller kitchens. Work centers line up along two opposite walls. But allow at least 4 ft. between facing cabinets ... ideally 5 to 6 ft. There should be entrances at both ends of the corridor. The eating area, of course, will be outside one of the entrances.

Single-wall. Efficient and economical arrangement for a small kitchen. Work centers are in line, with sink in center. Range and refrigerator are kept close enough to avoid excessive steps.

Remember, these are basic patterns. Just as you can alter a dress pattern for a particular figure, you can make adjustments for your particular room. An experienced kitchen planner can show you how.
Page 12:

Before you plan a new kitchen... discover what's cooking in ranges!

Certainly, the range that helps you prepare your family's food is a key factor in your new kitchen. Perhaps you'll find a model that will inspire your whole plan. Or you may find a range that solves a challenging space problem! One thing you can count on: today's flameless electric ranges will add beauty as well as cleanliness and efficiency to your kitchen.

Free-standing conventional ranges have the surface units at counter height (36 inches) and the ovens are located beneath the cooking top. Different widths are available; the 30 and 40 inch models are the most popular.

Free-standing eye-level ranges are increasingly favored in planning new kitchens. They combine a custom-built look with plug-in ease of installation. Their surface units are approximately 4 inches lower than the counter work surfaces. "Tri-level" models are essentially the same but have two ovens: one up, one down.
Page 13:

Built-in ovens and surface units . . . offer great flexibility of arrangement, and choice of sizes. Ovens can be installed at the height convenient for you. (Specifically, when the oven door is open it should be 4 or 5 inches below your elbow.)

Consider the extras that add so much

Imagine a self-cleaning oven! Just set the dials and go away. Or look for models with oven liners that slip out to swish clean in the sink.

How about oven doors with windows? A rotisserie? Built-in roast thermometer? And think about automatic timers that start dinner for you when you're miles away! There are so many things today's electric ranges can do to help you.

Drop-in ranges. These are permanently installed flush with the kitchen base cabinets. They are available in 30-inch models only, and require the same floor space as a 30-inch free-standing range. They offer large oven capacity in a compact space. Some models can be installed in an island.

Ventilator hood keeps kitchen (and whole house) cleaner and fresher by controlling odors and grease. Also an excellent source of light for working at the range. With a free-standing eye-level range, look for built-in exhaust system.
Page 14:

Plan for a new refrigerator-freezer... and never defrost again!

Just as with ranges, new refrigerator-freezer combinations come in an exciting variety . . . with styles and designs to solve space problems, and colors to add beauty and distinction to your new kitchen. And, of course, with the new no-frost feature, you'll never, never defrost again!

Freezer top offers handy storage for today's ever-increasing variety of frozen foods. Refrigerator section at bottom.

Side-by-side offers biggest storage for both frozen foods and refrigerated foods.
Page 15:

Freezer bottom either pulls out or swings out to provide still more ample storage. Refrigerator's at top.

No more ice cube trays? Consider a model with an automatic ice cube maker. (It may be the way to start the man of the house thinking about a new kitchen!)

"Decorator" models can provide the starting point for an excitingly different kitchen. Interchangeable decorator panels including wood grain effects are available on some units.

Old refrigerator "still good?" Many families now revel in a two-refrigerator home. The Old Faithful does soft-drink and extra-storage duty in basement or family room.

If you haven't priced appliances lately, prepare to be agreeably surprised

Whether you are buying a range or a refrigerator-freezer, a dishwasher, or a washer and clothes dryer . . . you'll find prices are lower two ways. Actual cost is lower; and you get so much more in the way of desirable features and attractive appearance. When you add the fact that electricity is increasingly penny-cheap-new appliances couldn't be more of a bargain!

The Country Look . . . homespun warmth through use of brick and wood and copper-toned appliances

Who's washing dishes? Nobody

Just about any woman who plans a new kitchen today, plans for an automatic dishwasher. It saves time, work and family arguments! Dishes are cleaner, more sanitary. Today's dishwashers let you skip pre-rinsing, hold partial loads, store dishes ... do all kinds of helpful things.

What model for you? Perhaps a built-in, or a free-standing portable with wooden chop-top . . . that you can wheel from dining

area to sink. Choose from top or front loading models.

Even decorator fronts available in today's electric dishwashers.
Page 17:

. . . plus city-slick cleaning up, with built-in electric dishwasher, and garbage disposer unit in sink.

Who's taking out garbage? Nobody

A garbage disposer will dispose of an amazing amount of tiresome kitchen chores. Food waste just doesn't accumulate with continuous-feed models that let you flush down peelings, scraps ... as you work. And yes, you can put down coffee grounds, grease . . . just about anything! (As with the rest of today's electric appliances, you'll be delighted to find how little a garbage disposer costs.)

How to make a home laundry...

more than "just a place to wash"
Page 19:





Light, color and functional arrangement make this basement laundry an inviting work center. (Note counter-top electric water heater.)

Whether you plan a new laundry or remodel, certain basics of kitchen-planning can help you. 1. Position appliances (washer and dryer together) 2. Allow counter space. 3. Plan for a sink, plus cabinets for storage of laundry supplies.

An electric water heater has many advantages. Because it's flameless and requires no venting, it can go anywhere. Fast recovery assures unlimited hot water; and the rate drops on all the electricity you use when you install one!

Nice-to-haves: cabinets for storage of clothing, linens, etc. A built-in pulldown ironing board. Sewing machine counter, with supplies for on-the-spot mending. Play area for small children.

What's new in washers and dryers? Permanent press! New model washers and dryers boast special settings to keep your permanent press garments in great no-iron shape. More and more, your modern automatic washer and electric clothes dryer can take over your ironing.

Remember: compare prices. You'll find that a flameless electric dryer costs up to $40 less than other kinds.
Page 20:

It's fun

to read and dream about a new kitchen... but exactly how do you start getting one?

You have taken the first step, by studying the simple basic rules in this booklet. If remodeling is your project, do some measuring in your own kitchen. Get in your own mind a general idea of the kind of kitchen you'd like.

Then talk to your appliance dealer. He can readily give you a rough idea of the amount of work and expense your particular kitchen will involve.

Finally, explore the matter of financing.

This can be handled in several ways. By a home improvement loan at your bank. By refinancing your home to extend and enlarge the basic mortgage. By an FHA home improvement loan ... In addition, some kitchen planning services offer their own financing.

Many times, a modernized kitchen adds more value to a home than the actual money it costs. You may well find that your new kitchen will prove the best investment you ever made!
Page 21:

This emblem means enjoyment now-plus a sound investment for the future

This Medallion symbol means that your home has:

Full housepower. Certified adequate wiring that allows for future electrical needs, as new appliances may be added.

Built-in appliances. At least 4 basic appliances to provide modern help in kitchen and laundry.

Planned lighting. The right lighting for work and leisure. Decorative lighting without glare . . . without shadows.

Increased resale value, because it assures the buyer that yours is a home designed for the future!

Total Electric Homes, in addition, offer electric heat. Today, more and more people are switching to electric heat because of its many advantages: cleanliness, room-by-room temperature control, trouble-free operation, even heat, up-to-dateness, quietness and freedom from drafts.
