Your kitchen layout will have a significant impact on the efficiency and function of the space, so it’s helpful to familiarize yourself with your kitchen layout options to determine what’s right for your home. During a full kitchen remodel, it is possible to alter your kitchen layout so that you end up with the kitchen you want.
The kitchen layout is made up of the room’s most essential features—countertops, major appliances, and storage areas. Below you can review the most common layouts used in Tucson kitchens.
The L-shape layout features cabinetry and appliances along two adjacent walls. This design leaves plenty of open space in the middle of the kitchen and can easily be enhanced with a kitchen island.
The G-shape kitchen is a modern update of the classic U-shaped design, which features continuous countertops and workspaces along three walls. Unlike the U-shape kitchen, the G-shape layout includes a peninsula along one side, which may be used as a dining area with accompanying barstools or a workspace with a small sink for food prep.
Many modern homeowners have embraced the single wall layout, which places all workspaces along a single wall. This minimalist layout is ideal for smaller homes, but it can be adapted in larger kitchens with an accompanying island. Overhead storage and open cabinetry helps to maximize the use of space in single wall kitchen layouts.
The galley kitchen is an enclosed space often featured in older homes. It features workspaces along parallel walls. While this compact layout can be restrictive for large families, it is ideal in homes where just one person prefers to do most of the cooking. The corridor style of the kitchen places all essential items in close reach, making food prep and multitasking a breeze.
