Kitchen design layout is the shape that is made in the organization of every element of your particular kitchen including the layout of the countertops, appliances and storage areas and kitchen cabinets. This floor plan creates the kitchen’s work triangle, which is the route that you make when moving around your kitchen – from the refrigerator to the sink and to the stove to cook. When designing your new kitchen and choosing the best cabinetry solutions for your home, one of the first considerations is your preferred kitchen design layout.
While certain kitchen design layout plans create more efficient and spacious kitchens, each kitchen design layout can be enhanced with the right cabinetry, wall art, lighting and decorations. Depending on the size of your kitchen, an island can be added to many of these kitchen design layouts to expand storage and create additional counter space. The width of walkways between cabinetry and the island is important and your kitchen designer will help determine if you have enough space to accommodate an island. Islands can be created in all shapes and sizes and you are not limited to a standard square or rectangular shape.
When you meet with our designers in our Performance Kitchens Showroom, we will review each of the kitchen design layouts to identify which is most similar to your current kitchen. You and our kitchen designers may need to work within the space of your current kitchen, OR you may decide to remove or reconfigure walls to expand the space which would give you additional options for your kitchen layout. When looking at each kitchen design layout you may find a kitchen floor plan that you prefer over your own. Keep in mind – even if you’re not making significant structural changes to the kitchen, you can still enhance the kitchen design layout with the right cabinetry.
Whatever you decide, we recommend working with a kitchen designer to select the cabinetry and create a kitchen design layout that works best for you.
