6 Practical Kitchen Designs Layouts

Where do you begin? Start with the basics and then throw in the fun. Here are the templates that can get you started:

  1. The Wall Design. This is based on a kitchen aligned along one wall. The stove and refrigerator are the far ends, with the sink and countertop space in the middle. This works well for small studio apartments.
  2. The Corridor. This design puts the sink on one side of the room with the refrigerator and stove on the other side. There are two ways into the kitchen, making it look like a short hallway. This is also known as a galley kitchen.
  3. The U Shape. Looking much like a cul-de-sac, the U shape puts the sink at the base of the U and the stove and refrigerator on either side of the corridor leading into it. The kitchen counter fits anywhere there's space.
  4. The G Shape. A modified cul-de-sac, this is more of a circular or square room with one entrance. The work triangle of stove, refrigerator, and sink are on three different sides of the G shape.
  5. The L Shape. This is just what it sounds like: a long line of cabinets, sink, countertop, and either a stove or refrigerator, ending with the base of the L, where the stove or refrigerator can fit.
  6. The Double L. Sometimes known as the island kitchen, this is often created of a stovetop in the middle of the kitchen, surrounded by the long L shape on opposing sides. This creates two distinct work triangles and plenty of space to move around.
