A L-shaped kitchen layout is a natural work triangle, created from continuous counter space and work stations on two adjacent walls. L-Shape Kitchen is best suited to narrow rooms, long rooms or nopen-plan living areas. This is a very popular kitchen layout- ideal for a family kitchen, or for entertaining guests. The cooktop, fridge and sink should ideally be seperated by areas of bench top to provide adequate preparation space. The benefit of this kitchen floor plan is that it not only provides the cook with an efficient work area, but it typically opens to a nearby room, making it easy for the cook to talk with guests.
U-Shaped kitchens are an extremely effective design solution, utilising three full walls of a kitchen. The layout offers continuous countertops and ample storage that surround the cook on three sides. In larger kitchens, this floor plan is spacious enough to be divided into multiple work stations for cooks to easily prepare a meal together without getting in each other’s way. To maximise storage and keep countertops clutter free, conceal the microwave in a base wall cabinet.
The corridor layout has a workspace large enough for one cook. In this kitchen floor plan, the work stations face each other on parallel walls, creating a small work triangle. Similar to the single-wall kitchen floor plan, you may opt to stack storage solutions to maximize space. Add linkable light strips under the cabinets for task lighting and brighten the room with glass inserts and interior cabinet lighting. If possible, add a pass-through to open up the kitchen, but keep the lower wall for base cabinetry.
It is a smart and simple solution for narrow rooms, ideally with one wall over 3 meters long, without windows or doors. All in all, it’s a layout where all kitchen work zones are arrayed along one wall is how we see it. If space is a big constraint, then go for this kitchen. Keep one wall of the kitchen open and the entire kitchen can e set upon that.
Kitchen Island is a stand-alone kitchen compartment, island separate from the main construction area. It is normally used as an additional space or an additional workstation and storage cabinets. It is a free standing piece of cabinetry that is placed in a kitchen to supplement the counter top space. To make the room feel more spacious, open up the wall in a nearby room and create a pass-through or breakfast bar for the family. This is ideal for getting an island unit which can be used for storage, as a breakfast bar, or an extra worktop. This is the ideal kitchen layout for entertaining, meaning you can be sociable whilst cooking.
