Common Kitchen Layouts U-Shaped Kitchen One-Wall Kitchen Galley U-Shape U-Shape & Island G-Shape L-Shape L-Shape & Island A One-Cook Kitchen Like the one-wall and galley floor plans, a U-shaped layout is an efficient kitchen designed for one primary cook. Basically a wide galley kitchen with one end closed off, it keeps onlookers out of the main work area while remaining open to other rooms of the home and allowing traffic to pass. Problems with the traditional U-shaped kitchen typically arise due to its small size. For one, it doesn't offer room for a kitchen table and chairs. Secondly, depending on where the sink is situated, it may be impossible to fit the dishwasher right next to it. To address the seating issue, you can try, as shown here, a pass-through to the dining room on one of the "legs" of the U. Another option is to turn that leg into a peninsula by eliminating the wall and the upper cabinets. The peninsula counter can then be used for eating, homework or paying bills. Of course, that method also eliminates a significant amount of storage space. Moving the refrigerator out of the main U shape can give you more food and cookware storage near the rangetop and ovens. Adding a kitchen island may seem like the obvious choice, but be careful: Most older U-shaped kitchens don't have room for one. Industry guidelines recommend at least 3½ feet between the island and surrounding cabinets and appliances so that doors can open properly and people can maneuver safely.


A hallmark of U-shaped kitchen design is its full use of three adjacent walls. Other kitchen designs—like L-shapes and galley kitchens, for example—use only two walls. This may, in some cases, increase the efficiency of these designs—in a galley kitchen, which consists of two parallel walls with a narrow corridor between them, cooks may simply need to pivot 180 degrees in order to access cooking features, then do an about-face to turn their attention to cleaning. The disadvantage of galley or L-shaped kitchens in comparison to U-shaped kitchens, of course, comes down to space. U-shaped kitchens by their nature generally are larger and provide more space for cooking, cleaning, food preparation and storage. In most U-shaped kitchens, these elements are separated into distinct zones.


Looking for small kitchen ideas? We might all covet a large and sociable kitchen-diner with room for a kitchen island, range cooker and dining table to cram guests around, but the reality is that sometimes it’s a case of making the most of what we have – in this case, a small kitchen. But diminutive doesn’t have to mean drab. There’s a wealth of clever ways to make your kitchen scheme feel spacious… Clear away the clutter in small kitchens Wall cabinets can really encroach on space, so consider doing away with yours. Open shelving can make a huge impact in a small kitchen, creating an open and airy feel, as long as you limit the amount of shelves you use, and what you keep on them. And if there are too many items cluttering up the worktops, consider clever solutions like wall-mounted magnetic knife strips, rails to hang utensils, pans, mugs, spice jars and cutlery bins. Also think about what you need to have to hand every day, such as chopping boards, wooden spoons, washing-up liquid, and what can be stored away until needed. Keep your kitchen scheme simple Nothing makes a room seem larger like simple white walls, so why not take it further with sleek, contemporary details that open up the space. Light, reflective materials and minimal designs are your friends in a small kitchen, so consider white or frosted glass cabinet doors, white stone or composite, or stainless-steel worktops, and white splashback tiling.
