The L-shaped kitchen is one of the standard kitchen layouts. A L-shaped kitchen consists of work space on two adjoining walls perpendicular to each other. There are no traffic lanes flowing through the work area. The legs of the kitchen can be as long as you make them to be and you will need to divide the legs into different work sites. The main advantages of this type of kitchen layout are that it can adjust to any length and it is perfect for corner space. Also, eating space can easily be created within this kind of kitchen.
The L-shaped kitchen shown here has two distinct zones. On the left leg, the sink and the dishwasher create a clean-up station. On the right leg, we have the cooking stove and oven, a mini-bar for cutting-up stuff and for having casual drinks and they add up to create a perfect cooking zone. The microwave is located to the left of the sink and is fixed into one of the cabinets. The lower cabinets are red-colored, while the upper compartments are white.
The L shaped one with a central island is great for today’s multipurpose kitchens. Although this layout works best with plenty of space, its variations makes it an easy fit for almost any style. Make sure the color of the furniture suit the color of the kitchen walls, so that they blend in together.
This layout is the best in terms of counter space, so if you are a person who loves to cook and is always in the kitchen, consider the L-shaped kitchen for your design. In larger kitchens, an island (or two) can break up the space in attractive ways, help direct traffic, provide convenient storage, and present the chef with useful counter top work space that borders.
