Advantages of the L-shaped kitchen layout

One of the most economical kitchen configurations for the modern day home is the L-shaped kitchen. L-shaped kitchens provide a simple and effective workspace—appliances and cabinets can be installed along right angled walls, opening up the centre area.

Great working triangle

The most effective kitchen designs make use of the working triangle. The working triangle enables you to move freely between your sink, oven/cooktop and refrigerator. The working triangle promotes work stations around two different walls in an L-shaped kitchen. Since you don’t have to walk too far to reach different zones, it makes meal prep an efficient process too.

Open plan living

Open plan living is a distinctive feature of modern homes and an L-shaped kitchen is ideal for this. An L-shaped kitchen opens up a whole lot of space as they only use two walls. The layout gives you options of opening up to another room, making life easy when entertaining.

The open layout of an L-shaped kitchen is perfect for table and chairs creating a relaxed and interconnected eating environment.
