The U-shape kitchen design has become a popular choice for kitchen layouts. It is most commonly suited to larger kitchen spaces. It is a perfect layout for families who spend a great deal of time in the kitchen. The U-shape kitchen design also offers maximum cabinet and bench top space.
This shape uses two walls of the kitchen for the three points of the work triangle. Often, the fridge is at one end of the long leg of the "L", the sink is towards the center of the same wall, and the stove is perpendicular, on the short leg of the "L." In contrast to the U-shape kitchen, the "L" has a long, rather than a short wall facing towards the rest of the room. Room traffic does not cross into the triangle, and, since this design uses only two walls, the triangle is long and relatively narrow, allowing for a more open layout. This setup is well-suited to a large room where the kitchen shares space with a family room. Additional counterspace may further lengthen one leg of the "L."
This arrangement is usually used for very long rooms because it takes advantage of both the main walls. The parallel kitchen offers the advantage of being able to place all the connections of the equipment on just one wall. To avoid the inconvenience of dividing up the work areas into two parts and making unnatural movements to pass from one area to the other, it is preferable to place the work area on one wall (sink, oven, and worktop) and to use the opposite wall for storage.
In Island kitchens, the island is the central focus and organizing principle. Sometimes one side of the island is for working and the other side is for casual dining. A kitchen island can be a cheap and attractive way to expand your counter space. An island can also help you add a second sink, dishwasher or oven to your kitchen. Today, a homeowner has the option of islands made of the same materials as the base cabinets and countertops for an integral look. On the other hand, the latest trend is leaning back towards a freestanding look, with upper cabinets, base cabinets, and countertops materials in a mix of and colours.
The kitchens are designed keeping in mind the available space and requirements of the clients. These are the ideal kind of basic kitchens for comparatively less space. Generally, these are suitable for narrow spaces and small houses / flats. These are called so as they line up straight against one wall without an island or breakfast counter. Often integrated into extensions and older properties, the 'straight' design can offer a stunning look when incorporating tall wall cabinets and the right splashbacks. These kitchens have everything you need for them to function properly and still look good.
