Kitchen Shapes.

There are five basic kitchen layouts: L-shape, G-shape, U-shape, One-wall and Galley. While variations do exist, the majority of kitchens are based on one of these five shapes. The size, shape and preferred style of your new kitchen will determine your layout.

The Work Triangle.

A stress-free kitchen is one in which traffic flows seamlessly. Ideally, there should be a smooth rotational movement between the 3 main tasks, cooking (using the stove), chopping or peeling (sink) and kitchen storage (refrigerator). Here, the segments of the triangle represent the traffic flow.

L-Shape Kitchen

The most popular design, an L-shape kitchen has workspaces on two adjoining walls running perpendicular to each other. The result is a good amount of workspace without an overcrowded room.

U-Shape Kitchen

A versatile layout that allows for even more countertop space and storage, U-shape kitchens surround the cook on all sides for easy transitioning between tasks.

G-Shape Kitchen

A popular variation of a U-shape kitchen, G-shape kitchens have the addition of a peninsula which can be used for extra storage and countertop space.

One Wall Kitchen

Suitable for small households, a One Wall kitchen often has the sink between the stove and refrigerator for an efficient and minimalist experience.

Galley Kitchen

The most efficient layout for narrow spaces, a Galley kitchen consists of workspaces on two opposing walls with a traffic lane between, allowing you to move freely from task to task.
