Kitchen Layout Abstract Outline CabinetCorp

Thinking about remodeling your current kitchen into the one you’ve always wanted? We know you may already have a style or color theme in mind. But before you get carried away you have to decide on the shape of the kitchen. This will be the foundation of your design and the key to a successful design. Kitchens usually fit into one of the following categories: one wall, galley, G-shaped, U-shaped, or L-shaped.

Once you have the kitchen floor plan decided, you have to place the stove, refrigerator and sink. These elements are the most important ones in the kitchen. Once placed, the rest of the design can grow from them. The placement of the stove, refrigerator, and sink denote the workflow in the kitchen. In other words how you will move around when cooking. When deciding their placement, consider how you use your kitchen and the chosen shape.

Consider the following shapes for the new design of your kitchen:

One Wall Kitchen

This type of kitchen shape is a good choice for small spaces. Only one wall gets fitted with the kitchen units, and thus, the kitchen is very compact and easy to work within. The workflow as you move around the space is very simple. This shape can work well in open plan rooms as well as small kitchens, or studio flats. To ensure usability, the design still needs to be well thought through. In this design, it is important to pay attention to the placement of the stove, sink, and refrigerator.

In the Galley shape, you fit the kitchen on two opposing walls. The name for the layout is Galley because the shape design reflects kitchen design on boats. While you cannot install extras like islands, this kitchen is a great option for small spaces. The design is particularly useful for single people. You can work easily without needing to walk too much between the key areas

The U-shaped kitchen is also a very functional design. This shape is particularly useful in large kitchens. In this layout, you use three walls of the room to fit cabinets, appliances, and worktops. You can fit a center island to further maximize the space. The island introduces the opportunity for further cabinet space, seating, and extra worktop surfaces.
