Different Types of Kitchen Layouts to Consider for Your Home, Seneca, Wisconsin

Kitchen remodeling can often be a daunting project to take on for many homeowners. There are many things to consider, including the design elements, timeline, and overall feel you want for your space. Below are some different types of kitchen layouts that you can consider for your home.

Different Layouts to Consider for Your Kitchen Remodeling Project

The U-Shaped Kitchen

The U-shaped option is an excellent option for a one-cook kitchen. This is essentially an enlarged galley kitchen that allows enough counter space for one person to move between cooking projects easily. It remains separate from the rest of the home in order to facilitate traffic flow. Problems can arise with this option when there are multiple people in the space or too many cooking projects going on at once.

Ideal for smaller spaces, the galley kitchen is designed for efficiency and easy traffic flow. Also called a ‘walk-through’ kitchen, this design allows for easy traffic flow between the two parallel countertops that face one another. This option is ideal if you want maximum efficiency, or if you are on a tighter kitchen remodeling budget. However, if you desire a lot of counter space and room for more than one cook, this is not the design for you. 

The L-Shaped Kitchen

This type is perfect for larger families that may need additional dining space. Designed exactly as it sounds, the L-shaped kitchen consists of countertops adjoining two perpendicular walls. Traffic is eliminated, and this is generally the design of choice for most open space concepts. This kitchen is perfect for those with medium to larger families, and those who need some additional countertop space for multiple cooking projects.
