Everyone uses their kitchen differently, which is why no two kitchens are ever the same. You may be the only person in your kitchen, while your neighbor has their entire family in there as they are cooking their evening meal. The number of people using the kitchen as well as a number of other factors will need to be taken into consideration when you begin planning the layout of your kitchen.
Here are 3 of the most popular kitchen layouts:
A galley kitchen is usually found in smaller homes, but that does not mean that you cannot incorporate one into your home. This type of kitchen is long and narrow with counters, cabinets, and appliances on both sides. You will find that you can reach everything in a galley kitchen within seconds when you are in there, but you won’t have much room for others in the space. Another downside to a galley kitchen is that it is closed off from the rest of the home, so if you enjoy entertaining and interacting with your guests as you are placing the final touches on the food… this kitchen will not work well for you.
L shaped kitchens are perfect if you do not like people walking through this space as you are preparing meals. This kitchen truly looks like an L with a main row of cabinets on one wall and a shorter row of cabinets on the adjoining wall. An L shaped kitchen will fit multiple chefs without anyone feeling crowded.
A U-shaped kitchen will give you the best of everything – storage, open spaces, and flexibility. The kitchen looks like a U with cabinets, countertops, and appliances going around the room. If you have space, you can even place an island in the middle of this kitchen layout, which will give you, even more, storage and space. The best thing about this kitchen is that unless someone is helping with food prep or getting a snack, they will not be in the space. A U-shaped kitchen cannot be used as a pass through to reach any other rooms in the house.
