The kitchen is one of the most important rooms to get well when considering kitchen design and renovation because there are so many to consider. A kitchen is more than just where you cook and keep all your food and equipment. Will the family also eat in the kitchen and if so, how do you want them to enjoy the space? you can start designing your dream kitchen by looking at the aesthetic features such as the color schemes, materials and details of the sinks and counter tops, but first you have to think about the layout. The following set of 6 ideas for the layout of the kitchen should give you an idea of the best option for your needs and your space, both for luxury and cheap kitchens.
If you have a massive kitchen and a need for space, storage and a place to eat, then the U-shape is perfect because it offers countertops and work spaces on 3 walls and there is still the possibility of an island in the middle to add. In essence, the U-shaped kitchen can offer the best of both worlds. You have plenty of room to ensure that you can make full use of the kitchen – perhaps by separating the cooking and preparation areas and giving yourself enough storage space, but the space in the middle is up to you to play with. This is ideal for the homeowner who not only likes to spend a lot of time in the kitchen making meals and baking, but also sees it as a common family room where everyone can come together.
The difference between the L-shaped kitchen layout and the U-shaped layout can be seen in the shape of the letter – with the L shape you lose one wall of counters and storage space. This is ideal for single people with small, separate kitchens, because it makes optimum use of the available space and yet maximizes the corner space. This dead end approach is great for those who want to cook in privacy, but if you don’t want the family to be excluded and the idea of children walking through the kitchen to check for dinner, the next option may be for you.
3.Kitchen in the galley
To be honest, this approach to kitchen design has gone out of fashion in recent years because the strict form and closed-in feel do not suit open plan living. There are, however, numerous benefits to kitchen kitchens in the right home. First, they can provide a two-walled approach to storage and facilities in a small space. Everything a home cook needs is available on both sides, but it’s still a great way to save space in a kitchen with minimal room for maneuver. Secondly, the long walkway between the two workspaces can open the space on either side, creating a constant flow of traffic between the back garden and the dining room and a common feeling.
Island kitchens are incredibly popular because not only do they offer a lot of new design options for new buildings and renovations, they can improve the layouts mentioned above. An island can give great depth and the ability to create an L-shaped kitchen and a new purpose to a galley kitchen, as long as both spaces are wide enough to accommodate them. Galleries are usually narrow, but in a larger room, an island gives a stopover in the middle for families to sit at. In other kitchens, such as the large U-shaped kitchens, islands can be a great centerpiece in the middle of a large, dominant kitchen. Some kitchens that have limited space can be used as preparation, while others have an alternative dining area.
6.Two island kitchen
Finally, but not least, we arrive at a kitchen layout that is probably the most extravagant of them all. If you plan to create a massive kitchen in your new home and have a large open space in the middle, there are two approaches to filling it. You could opt for a traditional island kitchen layout or you could have two islands. The question is, if you divide the space in two and have two separate islands, will you use both? There are many options and design ideas to play with when considering two islands. You could have one island to cook and one to eat or maybe one to mess up the kids and one to keep good. The idea is attractive, but requires a lot of thinking.
