Which Kitchen Layout is perfect for you!
One of the first (and most important) steps in planning your new Freedom Kitchen is picking the perfect kitchen design layout. Selecting the most suitable floor plan will depend on a number of factors including space, workflow and appliances. A successful layout maximises the efficiency of the three key zones in the kitchen or ‘working triangle’ as it is commonly known: food prep, cooking and cleaning.
From U-shape, L-shape, and Galley, to a design that includes an island bench, below are the most popular and common kitchen layouts in Australian homes. If you’re looking for kitchen layout ideas then read on- we explore each one in detail to help you discover your perfect design.
U Shaped Kitchen Layout
A popular choice in Australian households, the U shaped kitchen layout is ideal for those who love to cook and entertain, and want plenty of counter space. Suitable for both small and large spaces, a U-shaped kitchen design features three walls with built-in cabinetry, appliances and benchtops, that are all joined to resemble a ‘U’ shape.
This kitchen configuration allows for appliances to be placed within easy reach of each other, and provides ample storage and organisational space with a mixture of drawers and cupboards. You may also like to consider adding a dining zone within the centre of the design (if you have a large space), or a breakfast bench is another great option!
