Kitchen Plans By Modiani Kitchens

When it comes to the kitchen design process, the kitchen floor plan can be just as important as the kitchen style and design choices you make. If you are planning to build a new home or are hoping to remodel your kitchen, it is important to know the different shapes and layouts that kitchens are typically designed in. Each kitchen’s floor plan offers different conveniences and some may be more well-suited for particular spaces than others. Below is some pertinent information that you should consider when deciding to design your luxury kitchen in cooperation with Modiani Kitchens.

Kitchen Layouts

There are four common kitchen layouts that you should consider, depending on your kitchen plan. The L-shaped kitchen is situated in an L-formation, typically with an island in the center of the room that is accessible from both legs of the L. The L shape is very common for kitchens that have a lot of different uses, from eating into prepping to doing work on the island. A traditional galley kitchen setup has the sink, the stove and a prep area along one line and then another prep area directly across from it. In a one wall kitchen, the workspace and all appliances are situated along one wall. This is a common kitchen layout in smaller spaces, such as condos or apartments, where the main dining area is also in the kitchen. The U-shaped kitchen is the preferred kitchen shape for busy cooks, who want to be within easy reach of the entire work area at all times.

How To Plan Your Kitchen

We highly recommend discussing your kitchen plans with one of our expert kitchen designers, so we can work out which kitchen design would work best in your specific space. Planning for spacing issues as well as analyzing how you intend to use the space is very important for any remodel, but even more so for kitchen remodels. You want the kitchen to work for you and you also want it to fit well in the space you have dedicated it to. Our professional designers, who are trained in kitchen ergonomics and design, will be able to plan your kitchen in the most convenient way, as well as to recommend where kitchen cabinets and appliances should be placed in your kitchen.

How To Work With Our Kitchen Designers

It is really important to get a clear understanding of what it is exactly you want so that you can communicate these requirements regarding your kitchen plans and ideas in the best possible way to our kitchen designers at Modiani Kitchens. If our designers know what you need, they will be able to guide you in making kitchen planning decisions that will positively affect the outcome of your kitchen remodel. It will be very helpful for us to hear, how you use your kitchen:

  • Are you a serious chef, or an occasional cook?
  • Would you like to see into other living spaces of your home whilst working in the kitchen?
  • Is it important to you that you have ample workspace, or that there is room for guests during dinner parties?
  • Do you need an area for your kids to do their homework, or aren’t there any kids in the household?

Work Triangle

When it comes down to deciding how to space your kitchen cabinets and where to place the appliances, it often comes down to one key factor: what are your needs? If you are going to take the time and designate the resources to remodel your kitchen, it makes sense that you should invest in a kitchen that is going to work for you. Our kitchen designers usually work with the idea of the work triangle, when planning your kitchen space and deciding where to place your kitchen appliances. The work triangle consists of the stove, the refrigerator, and the sink – all of which need to be easily accessible from one another.

Custom Kitchen Plans and Designs

If you have a special kitchen plan or need a custom kitchen design, why not discuss it with your contact at Modiani Kitchens? We can then see whether your kitchen plan is feasible as well as functional. Although your original design may be what you have always wanted in a kitchen layout, the actual dimensions, once implemented, may not contribute to the accessibility needed by all family members. Make sure to discuss your custom setup and design ideas with your kitchen designers, and we will be more than happy to assist you making the right decisions.
