L Shape Kitchen Layouts

L-Shaped_kitchen_layout

Perhaps the most common kitchen layout is the  L-Shape kitchen plan. In this kitchen layout the problem of pass through traffic is eliminated. The possibility of corner storage also comes into play with the wall and base cabinetry at the inside of the L shape. It’s important to take advantage of this space and use it wisely. Blank or “dead” corners should be avoided here.

Take care not to make each leg of the L too long to avoid unnecessary amounts of travel while working in the kitchen. A maximum leg length of 12 – 15 feet is ideal.  If you have a large enough room to work with you can explore the idea of adding an island to this kitchen plan.

Pros:

– Excellent choice for a typical medium sized kitchen.

– If laid out properly this is an extremely efficient kitchen to cook in.

– If space permits an island or peninsula can add additional storage and function.

Cons:

– Household traffic can interfere with work triangle.

– Reduce traffic by placing the refrigerator at the end of one leg of the L shape.

– Microwave/hood combo is most efficient use of space but not great for maximum ventilation.
