G Shape Kitchen Layouts

The G shape kitchen layout is really a modified version of the U shape. Many times the G shape is completed by adding a peninsula area to create the G shape. The addition of a peninsula is an excellent way to make your kitchen more inviting especially if it incorporates seating for guests.

The downside to the G shape kitchen plan is that it does limit access to the main kitchen area so care must be taken so the kitchen doesn’t feel cramped. Make certain there is plenty of room between the leg of the G and cabinetry on the opposite wall. Try to keep an entry access distance of no less than 48″ here.

Pros:

- Can offer more storage and counter space than small kitchens.

- Can offer seating space for a few guests.

- Ideal way to limit access to the busy “work triangle” area of the kitchen.

Cons:

- Can make the kitchen feel closed in or smaller than it actually is.

- Care must be taken to leave adequate ingress and egress to main kitchen work center.

- Try to avoid a peninsula less than 3 feet long.
