HOW TO CHOOSE A KITCHEN LAYOUT, ACCORDING TO SPACE


Pinterest

Choosing the perfect kitchen layout during your remodel is not just about functionality and style; it's about creating a heartwarming space that fits your home's unique shape and size. It's about blending your favorite features and storage needs seamlessly into a design that feels just right for you and your family. Exactly how you do that will change depending on the size of your kitchen. 


In small or awkwardly shaped kitchens, space optimization is key. Larger kitchens benefit from U-shaped or island layouts, providing ample counter and storage space. U-shaped kitchens suit closed spaces with one open side, while island layouts are ideal for open plans, enhancing social interaction and offering casual seating.

For smaller kitchens, single wall and galley layouts are efficient, utilizing vertical space with high wall cabinets and open shelving. Clearances for appliance doors should be considered to maintain circulation.

Medium-sized kitchens can opt for peninsular layouts, which offer additional workspace and casual seating like islands but require less room. L-shaped kitchens are another option, supporting multiple cooks and a dynamic flow, particularly where the kitchen triangle (sink, refrigerator, stove/oven) remains compact. Utilizing corners for storage is essential in L-shaped and U-shaped kitchens.









In larger, rectangular spaces, a long island parallel to a range and hood, flanked by storage and counter space, can be effective. This setup allows for extensive storage, including sink, dishwasher, and additional appliances within the island.

To ensure a successful kitchen layout, understanding space distance rules is vital for convenience, comfort, and safety. Avoid common layout mistakes in small kitchens and explore solutions for various room sizes. If unable to change a design, there are ways to improve the flow and functionality of less ideal kitchen layouts.
