How to Choose the Right Kitchen Layout

When you are planning and designing your new kitchen remodel, there is so much to think of, but one of the most important to think about the layout. The layout of your kitchen will play a huge role in the functionality of your kitchen. A kitchen is more than just a place where you cook – some of the major factors to consider is if your family will eat in the kitchen? Will you need to put your washing machine and dryer in the kitchen? Things like that are all things to think about when you are deciding on a kitchen layout. If you need help deciding, we’ll go over the most popular kitchen design layouts.

The Most Popular Kitchen Layouts

U-Shaped Kitchen

If you have a large kitchen and need a lot of space for storage, a place to eat, and counter space then a u-shaped kitchen may be your best bet. The u-shaped kitchens are great because there are counters and workspaces on 3 walls and then if you need more counter space or storage you can also add an island in the middle. This is a great option for families who need a lot of storage but also like to use the kitchen as a communal space and spend time in the kitchen as well.

L-Shaped Kitchen

The biggest difference between a U-shaped & L-shaped kitchen is that you are loosing one wall and one counter space. These kitchens are ideal for single couples with a small kitchen. You are still utilizing the maximum space you have available without a large space as an option. These kitchens are great for people who don’t want to entertain or cook with a large audience without shutting everyone completely out.

Island Kitchen

Island kitchens are one of the most popular because they give you a lot of design options for both new homes being built as well as kitchen renovations. Adding an island to the middle of a kitchen can give the space a whole new depth and make your kitchen look a lot larger than it is. It can also give you more storage space as well as eating space.
