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.
