Kitchen renovation layout ideas

April 04, 2014

With any kitchen renovation you have a choice of a number of different layouts. We give you a summary of each potential design and things you have to watch out for.

There are four standard kitchen layout designs. All designs take into account the classic work triangle. The work triangle is how you move between your sink (cleaning), refrigerator (food) and cooktop (cooking). Galley Kitchen renovation Galley KItchen   Efficient design but counter space is limited and foot traffic can be disruptive.    L-shaped Kitchen renovation L Shaped Kitchen   No foot traffic crosses work triangle and lots of counter space. U-Shaped Kitchen renovation U Shaped Kitchen An island can be included if the U is big enough. G-Shaped   Kitchen renovation G Shaped Kitchen Lots of counter space, can link to dining area with common counter surface. In larger kitchens an island can break up space. For good traffic flow islands should have at least 3 or 4 feet of aisle on each side. Never put an island in a kitchen where 2 points of the work triangle are on opposite walls as it will get in the way. Always remember your work triangle. Have a good week and we will talk soon...
