L-shaped Kitchen Layout
In recent years, L-shaped kitchens have gained more and more popularity. As the name suggests, this kitchen layout consists of two kitchen walls facing each other at a 90-degree angle and can vary in size, depending on the kitchen space available. Especially when designing kitchens of medium to large size, it seems to be very common to place a kitchen island or kitchen table next to it. Here are some more of the characteristics of an L-shaped kitchen:
- Usually placed in corners, so the kitchen can be entered from various different angles
- Easy to implement “work triangle” with the refrigerator, stove and sink in close proximity
- Ideal for open kitchens with enough room for a seating area
One wall Kitchen Layout
Usually, one wall kitchens are very common for small to very small luxury kitchen spaces in studio apartments or lofts. This type of kitchen layout just consists of one wall, making it a suitable option for kitchen remodeling projects in NYC. As workspace is often limited, it makes sense to evaluate the use of compact kitchen appliances. Should more space be available, including a kitchen island is a way of gaining additional storage and workspace.
