What are the most common kitchen styles?
- THE L-SHAPED KITCHEN:
In an L-shaped kitchen style, it consists of a natural work triangle created from continuous counter space and workstations on two adjacent walls. This type of kitchen floor plan has the benefit of not only providing the cook with an efficient work area, but it also typically opens to a nearby room, making it easy for the cook to interact with guests.
- THE U-SHAPED KITCHEN:
The U-shaped kitchen style is the most versatile layout for kitchens both large and small as the layout offers continuous countertops and ample storage, which surround the cook on three sides.
- THE G-SHAPED KITCHEN:
The G-shaped kitchen layout is a version of the U-shaped kitchen layout, with the same amount of counter space and storage options that surround the cook on three sides. However, the difference with the G-shaped kitchen floor plan is the peninsula or partial fourth wall of additional cabinets.
- SINGLE-WALL KITCHEN
The single-wall kitchen floor plan is ideal for smaller homes. The work triangle in this kitchen layout is less like a triangle and more of a work line with all three kitchen zones along one wall.
- THE GALLEY KITCHEN
The galley kitchen layout has a workspace large enough for one cook. In this kitchen floor plan, the workstations face each other on parallel walls, creating a small work triangle.
