U – shaped kitchen
Also known as the galley kitchen, the U – shaped kitchen works well for spacious layouts where more than one cook may be working in the same kitchen. The workspace features a horseshoe shaped area where the work triangle is very well defined and easy to access. If you are one of those people who like some easy banter while you’re slogging it out at the stove, then the openness of this layout will appeal to you. This kitchen is so designed that it allows traffic to pass through while keeping kids and onlookers out of the main working area.
Parallel Modular Kitchen
L – shaped kitchen
L – shaped kitchen layouts are amongst the most sought after designs. They are formed by placing workspaces on adjoining walls perpendicular to each other, so that they form a natural work triangle. L – shaped kitchens allow easy movement and can fit in, even in small places as well as large kitchens. In fact if you have extra space, you can jazz up your L-shaped kitchen with a kitchen island or breakfast counter in the middle which will only up the functionality of your kitchen.
Straight modular kitchen
Straight modular kitchens are apt for small spaces, especially if all you have is one wall in your flat to use for all your cooking purposes. A straight kitchen has no islands or breakfast counters and lines up against a wall. These kitchens have the added advantage of being easy to incorporate into extensions and older buildings, so if you are thinking of renovating or revamping your house, do remember to plan well and see if a straight kitchen actually works better for you than any other layout.
