L Shaped Kitchen
Using an L-Shaped layout for your kitchen helps to make the most of your corner space and provides you with an open plan room for you to combine your kitchen and dining area. The downside to this layout is that your back will be facing your guests whilst you’re cooking, which may be undesirable if you enjoy entertaining!
The U-shaped kitchen allows you to maximize your storage space by having cupboards and units on three walls of the kitchen. Where your kitchen isn’t big enough to house an island, a U-shape design means that your sink, fridge and hob are never far from one another, making for a practical and usable space.
Single Wall Kitchen
In dwellings where space is a luxury, the single wall kitchen layout is the ultimate way to save space. By arranging your units in a way that maximizes storage, having your kitchen on one wall means you can use the space in the rest of your room for a dining table or other furniture.
Great for small spaces, the galley kitchen has two runs of parallel worktops and units with a walkway in the middle. It offers an efficient use of space and, as such, it’s a preferred layout for many celebrity chefs.
Having a kitchen island adds additional worktop surface to a kitchen and can be used to house appliances and extra cupboard storage. It can also provide space for breakfast bar style seating for less formal dining.
