Need Help Choosing the Kitchen Layout that Best Fits Your Lifestyle?

You have finally decided to remodel or design your own kitchen! Congratulations! We know that this can be a challenging time for you and that there are many things that are racing through your mind right now.

You may have already skipped ahead to flooring options as well as countertops and paint colors, but we need you to stop and take a step back for a minute. There’s so much more exciting stuff to consider.

Have you thought about the layout of your new kitchen? Are you planning on keeping the same layout as before or did that not work at all for you and that is the reason for the remodeling?

Depending on the space that you have for your kitchen, you may be able to change your current layout and turn the space into one that works a whole lot better for you and your family. You don’t have to stick with the standard open floor plan kitchen with an island if that doesn’t fit the way you cook.

Here are 4 different kitchen layouts that you can choose from:

Galley Kitchens

Galley kitchens are long and narrow and they work best in small spaces like apartments or tiny houses. Since the kitchen uses space on two walls, there is never a wasted inch of space or odd shapes or sizes to deal with. The downside to these kitchens is that only one or two people can use them at a time and people usually use them as a way to get from one area of the house to another.

L-Shaped Kitchens

An L-shaped kitchen utilizes the space on two adjoining walls and is perfect for small or medium size kitchens. These kitchens are wonderful, because people cannot walk through them to reach another space in the house.

U-Shaped or Horseshoe Kitchens

This type of kitchen layout has three walls that makes a u-shape or horseshoe shape. You can eliminate one of the walls in this layout and place an island where the third wall would have been to open up the space even more. Multiple people can be in this space at one time and there is less of a chance that anyone will be in someone else’s way.

Peninsula Kitchens

You can choose to connect an island to an L-shaped kitchen or a U-shaped kitchen to add even more space. You can have the functionality of an island without trying to fit one in the middle of the room where space may be limited.

You will want to carefully choose your new kitchen layout, so that you can truly enjoy a functioning kitchen for many years. We can assist you with any questions that you have as well as tell you which options might work best in the space that you have available.
