The variety of kitchen design ideas can seem almost endless, but the truth is that kitchen design generally fall into a few main categories.
Today let’s talk about the 5 of the most popular kitchen layouts
- Parallel Kitchen
- U – Shaped Kitchen
- L – Shaped Kitchen
- Island kitchen
- Peninsula kitchen
As the name suggests, in parallel. This type of distribution is perfect for wide and long kitchens or with two opposite doors. It is recommended to leave at least a 1200mm space between the two rows.
These are very popular in projects looking for an open concept by joining the room, like kitchen, dining and living room. The island allows you to create an entertaining area.
Generally require large spaces; otherwise, they are a bit overwhelming. By using three walls, movement through the kitchen is more comfortable, since the distances are shorter. In this distribution, the corner furniture that you want to put must be taken into account, since a wrong choice can cause us to have a lot of wasted space and the kitchen will not be functional. In general, modules with rotating or removable fittings are the most suitable to take advantage of these spaces, but they are also expensive.
L – Shaped Kitchen
It is one of the most common. It is ideal for a family kitchen since it is easy to place a table and chairs to create a space in which to eat daily. It applies to any kitchens size and offers excellent comfort since it creates a workspace where with just a few steps we have everything within reach, it gains in agility and speed. As in the U distribution case, we must take into account the corners for the same reason.
This kitchen layout is the most popular because its distribution allows more interaction. Kitchens with island are perfect when it comes to receiving guests, since, if the island is placed facing the dining room or living room, you can maintain contact with the kitchen at all times. If we set the sink or the hob in it, a triangular arrangement of the three critical points of the kitchen is obtained, to improve efficiency.
Island Kitchen layout is a distribution that we should only choose if we have enough space for it; otherwise, we would be frustrated with a poorly functional kitchen.
In kitchens with a peninsula, the distribution is made by arranging the work areas perpendicular to a wall. As a result, the design offers an aesthetically pleasing view. It is another popular designs of recent times, where luxurious designs are observed that place two of the peninsula areas, especially the kitchen and the sink. The vision of the bell on the peninsula offers a striking and impressive sight for the guests. Also, it allows interacting in the right way when we have visitors.
