KITCHEN SHAPES

The layout of the kitchen is the most important factor in deciding the position of three important areas of the kitchen i.e. stove/cooking area, sink & the refrigerator (also popularly known as the work triangle). This layout determines the ease of working in a kitchen. If you are making a new house then you can decide the kitchen layout to some extent, but if you are renovating an old kitchen then the layout has its limitation. An understanding of the different kitchen layouts helps you plan your new kitchen.

U-Shaped Kitchen

The U-shaped kitchen design is the most ideal kitchen layout. It is ideally suited to larger kitchen spaces. It's perfect for families who spend a lot of time in the kitchen. This type of layout offers maximum storage through cabinets and counter space.

L-Shaped Kitchen

This shape uses two walls of the kitchen for the three points of the work triangle. Often, the fridge is at one end of the long leg of the "L", the sink is towards the center of the same wall, and the stove is perpendicular, on the short leg of the "L". In contrast to the U-shaped kitchen, the "L" has a long, rather than a short wall facing towards the rest of the room. This kind of setup is well-suited to a large room where the kitchen shares space with a family room. Additional counter space may further lengthen one leg of the "L".

Parallel Kitchen

This arrangement is usually used for very long rooms because it takes advantage of both the main walls. This type of layout offers the advantage of being able to place all the connections of the equipment on just one wall. To avoid the inconvenience of dividing up the work areas into two parts and reduce movements to pass from one area to the other, it is preferable to place the work area on one wall (sink, oven, and worktop) and to use the opposite wall for storage.

Island Kitchen

In this type of kitchen layout, the island is the central focus and organizing principle. One side of the island can be used for working while the other side for casual dining. A kitchen island can be a cheap and attractive way to expand your counter space. Alternatively, it can also help you add a second sink, dishwasher or oven to your kitchen. Today, a homeowner can go for islands made of the same materials as the base cabinets and countertops for an integral look. Or, one can opt for a freestanding look, with upper cabinets, base cabinets, and countertops materials in a mix of and colours.

Straight Kitchen

The type of kitchen layouts are designed keeping in mind the available space and requirements of the clients. These are the ideal kind for small houses/flats with comparatively less space. Often integrated into extensions and older properties, this type of layout can offer a stunning look when incorporating tall wall cabinets and the right splashbacks.
