Starting your kitchen renovation can be overwhelming. Choosing a layout is vital in designing a floor plan with dimensions that fit your square footage. Do you know the different kitchen layouts? KOB Kitchen brings you a guide of kitchen designs that can help you make a decision.

    The One-Wall Kitchen

    Also known as the single-wall or straight kitchen floor plan, cabinets and appliances are fixed on a single wall. Most modern designs also include an island, which can add extra counter space and storage. It’s the least functional kitchen, but it’s efficient when you have limited space. Less counter space means lower costs, as counters tend to run up kitchen budgets considerably.

    The Galley Kitchen

    Most commonly found in smaller homes, a galley kitchen features cabinets and appliances on two sides with a corridor running down the middle. It eliminates any wasted space that’s occupied by inconvenient corner cupboards. To maximize the efficiency of this kitchen, you can make use of any wall space you have with shelving.

    L-Shaped Kitchen

    The L-shaped kitchen is one of the most popular layouts because of its super functionality that can be adapted for almost any size. It solves the problem of corners by maximizing the space usage, and it’s a clever design for small and medium-sized kitchens. One of the benefits of an L-shaped kitchen is the ability to center a table in the open floor space.

    G-Shaped Kitchen

    This layout offers the benefits of a kitchen island via a peninsula. It’s a great solution for spaces that don’t allow for an independent island to be installed. The peninsula can be used for food preparation, eating, or other tasks. If the kitchen feels small and enclosed, try removing a wall to open the area to an adjacent room without giving up on storage space.

    U-Shaped Kitchen

     A U-shaped floor plan goes on three sides, allowing more counter space and extra cabinet storage. If you have the space, this is one of the most versatile kitchen layouts for families. Many U-shaped kitchens are separate from the dining room and can feel enclosed if there are upper cabinets on all three walls. To avoid this, have your upper cabinets along just one or two walls.
