Townhouses are most often encountered in chic urban areas, offering city-dwellers a living space that can be compact as well as elegant and luxurious. Modern townhouses are bright and airy, providing a genuinely house-like feel amid the hustle and bustle of the city. When it comes to interior design for townhouses, possibilities abound.
Today, we’d like to take a closer look at one of the most important rooms in your townhouse—the kitchen.

SACRAMENTO TOWNHOUSE DESIGN VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:
TITLE: How to Design a Townhouse Kitchen
JOHN BROWN: The sixth step to a slow home is a good kitchen. A slow home has a compact kitchen with an efficient layout, good work surfaces, and sufficient storage. The kitchen is the workhorse of any house. At the same time, it’s one of the most popular and well-used living areas.
Balancing these two requirements can be challenging in the narrow width of a townhouse. In my home, the kitchen is located in the center of the plan, and is part of an open loft space that includes both the living and dining areas. The layout starts with a peninsula eating bar that faces out to the living space.
In addition to providing a good space for casual eating, the counter creates a natural separation for the working part of the kitchen without isolating the cook from the rest of the living space. To create an effective work triangle, the refrigerator is situated on one side of the kitchen, with the sink on the opposite counter and the cooktop at the end. The result is a kitchen that is a great place to cook, and maintains a strong connection to the rest of the house.
