Common kitchen floor plans include the one-wall kitchen, the corridor or galley kitchen, the L or double L kitchen, the U-shaped kitchen and the G-shaped kitchen.
The layout of your kitchen-where you place your appliances, your countertops, and your storage-will determine how cook-friendly your kitchen is. Ask yourself:
- Will I have enough space to prepare meals?
- Will two or more cooks be able to work comfortably in the space without constantly bumping into each other?
- Do I prefer a range or a separate cooktop and oven?
- Do I need an eating area in the kitchen?
