Kitchen layout design idea


Not every kitchen has a same layout, what do you think about your plan for the kitchen layout? Which layout suitable for your kitchen?The efficiency of your kitchen can sometimes depend more on how it’s laid out, rather than the amount of space you have.

The single line kitchen
This is a smart and simple solution for narrow rooms, ideally with one wall over 10 feet long, without windows or doors. However, this layout causes the longest journey distances since you often have to walk from one end of the room to the other.

The L-shape kitchen
This is a very popular kitchen layout - ideal for a family kitchen, or for entertaining guests, since it can easily accommodate table and chairs in the same room. The sink, range and fridge should be separated by a preparation area.

The U-shape kitchen
The use of three full walls in a room offers the perfect working kitchen. The fridge, range and sink can be spaced out for maximum efficiency and convenience. This is great news for those who take your cooking seriously, as it provides the best workflows with the shortest distances around the kitchen.

The island kitchen
A very popular kitchen type, the island layout is perfect if you plan to entertain but requires more floor space. An independent island unit can face a dining or living area, allowing the cook to socialise while preparing. A sink here provides the optimal arrangement in terms of the kitchen’s working triangle.

Layout Mistakes
Don't wind the cabinetry around the room like a vine.
Don't choose too many focal points.
Don't install a sink in a breakfast bar.
Leave enough space between island and counter.
