Honestly, I think it's just semantics...an attempt to transition one phrase into the other. After reading the houzz article describing 'work zones', it could just as easily describe my 'work triangle' kitchen. I Dishwasher & trash next to sink, check. Landing areas next to major appliances: check. Large island to keep guests a bay: check.....

I live in a small town filled with older homes. I know few people who upgrade their kitchens to look like the glam-fabulous photos here on houzz. Most people I know don't ever get around to kitchen remodeling and just make do with the old.

Another thing: I read that kitchens have come a long way because all the architects used to be all men and they seldom spent time in a kitchen, therefore kitchens weren't 'user friendly'. Once women came on to the scene, their input helped kitchens evolve into rooms that function well and are family gathering places.

I don't have time to read all the other comments, so maybe someone has already said this, but I think it's a good idea to have the sink and the cooktop/range on the same run of cabinets, so that they are not separated by a walkway. This makes prep and cleanup easier and safer, since no one can walk between the chef and the sink while the chef is trying to drain pasta.

So glad people are using grey water. My dad used washing machine and kitchen sink water to water his yard 60 years ago.

We're big fans of grey water in the drought southwest, but last summer I killed off a bunch of well-established shade bushes when my hose from the washer was in my side yard and the water was too hot. It burned the roots of my plants and I've had to start over! now I use it to green up the local grass we can't seem to get rid of. For years, I've had a hose off my air conditioner as well to drip into my sweet potato vines.
