Can kitchen layouts change your life?

It is crucial to pick the right kitchen layout for your everyday life. The location of all appliances and counter tops will dictate how easily you cook, clean, and perform every day tasks.

See below for different kitchen layout ideas and their pros/cons!

1. Kitchen Island
  • These are among one of the most popular kitchen designs
  • Ensures efficient work triangle if the island contains your sink, cooking unit, or refridgerator
  • Gives families extra space for dining, homework, or social events
  • Added benefit: storage!
    • You can design your island to have shelves built-in to any of its sides
    • This will give you extra space for storing items, decoration, etc.

2. Kitchen Peninsula
  • This idea is good for those wanting the kitchen island layout, but don't have enough space to achieve the look
  • It gives the same great island look and functionality without using up so much square footage
  • This layout provides stool space and an open concept feel

3. Single-sided Kitchen
  • Single-sided kitchens will not be seen in most homes, but are great for those who have a very narrow kitchen space, but still want to fit in a dining room table
  • Instead of working in a circular or triangular fashion, you would be working in a straight line with appliances at one end against the opposite wall and a long straight countertop
  • This layout does not give much room for storage, so a good alternative would be to use a wall mounted rail system to hang pots, knives, etc.
    • Obviously this might be a great option if there are no young children in the home

4. Galley Kitchen
  • Styling your kitchen in this manner is best for those who are limited on space, but love to spend time in the kitchen
  • A galley kitchen is a good idea when there are windows or doors on the short walls of the room where you would normally continue cabinets and possibly and island
  • Unlike the single-sided kitchen, this layout has kitchen counter tops situated on both sides of the kitchen
  • Something to keep in mind: make sure work spaces (sink and oven for example) are not situated right across from each other, so multiple people can comfortably work in the same space

5. L-Shaped Layout
  • This layout has been said to pair well with those who love to entertain and tend to "go with the flow"
  • It works best for those wanting to merge their kitchen and dining room table areas
  • Can be used to create an eat-in kitchen
