Kitchen Layouts

Kitchen layouts are designed to be adaptable to many varied floor planning scenarios and can be adjusted accordingly. These standard types of kitchen layouts offer flexibility to your spatial and structural constraints while maintaining the standard proportions and sizes of the kitchen fixtures themselves.

In kitchen design, the triangle diagram represents connections between the three primary kitchen activity centers: the refrigerator, the sink, and the stovetop/range. These activity centers serve multiple functions in food preparation:

Refrigerator: Access to food for use or storage
Sink: Rinsing, draining, and clean-up
Stovetop/Range: Baking, boiling, cooking, and serving

Two Row Galley Kitchens
Kitchen layout illustrating the dimensions and measurements of a standard Two Row Galley Kitchen floorplan

Two Row Galley Kitchen layouts are space efficient designs that combine kitchen fixtures into a pair of optimized linear bars. Designed similarly to Single Row Galley Kitchens, Double Row Galley Kitchens require an interior centralized zone that provides user access to each side. A clearance width between 4’-6’ | 1.2-1.8 m should be provided between the two linear bars to allow users to use and access the kitchen equipment comfortably. Two Row Galley Kitchens have linear lengths that range from 7’-12.5’ | 2.1-3.8 m and should be planned with an overall area of roughly 108 ft2 | 10 m2.

L-Shape Kitchen
Kitchen layout illustrating the measurements, sizes, and dimensions of standard L-Shape Kitchen floorplan with island

L-Shape Kitchens are common kitchen layouts that use two adjacent walls, or an L configuration, to efficiently organize the various kitchen fixtures. Flexible for multiple variations of lengths and depths, L-Shape Kitchen designs often incorporate additional Island Counters (rectangle, square) for increased work space and table surfaces. A minimum clearance aisle of 3’6” | 1.07 m is required in front of the L-Shape layout, with recommended widths from 4’-6’ | 1.2-1.8 m. L-Shape Kitchens have long linear lengths that range from 8’-13’ | 2.4-4 m and short lengths of 3’-9’ | .9-2.7 m. L-Shape Kitchens should be planned with an overall area of roughly 111 ft2 | 10.3 m2.

L-Shape Kitchen Islands (Rectangle) are common kitchen layouts that use two adjacent walls, or an L configuration, to efficiently array the various kitchen fixtures around a rectangular island counter. Spatially flexible for multiple variations of lengths and depths, L-Shape Kitchen Island designs provide increased work space and table surfaces for kitchen activities. A minimum clearance aisle of 3’6” | 1.07 m is required in front of an L-Shape layout, with recommended widths from 4’-6’ | 1.2-1.8 m. L-Shape Kitchen Islands have long linear lengths that range from 8’-13’ | 2.4-4 m and short lengths of 3’-9’ | .9-2.7 m and should be planned with an overall area of roughly 115 ft2 | 10.7 m2.

G-Shape | Peninsula Kitchen
Floor plan drawing of a G-Shape | Peninsula kitchen layout with dimensions for clearance and size

G-Shape Kitchens, also known as Peninsula Kitchens, are kitchen layouts that continuously locate cabinetry and fixtures along three adjacent walls and ends in a bar counter extension. Popular for efficiently combining an additional seating area and work counter with a U-Shape layout, the G-Shape Kitchen can easily support multiple people at a given time. A minimum central width of 5’ | 1.53 m must be provided for use, but it is recommended that this interior zone be enlarged to between 6’-8’ | 1.8-2.4 m in the short direction to provide adequate room for multiple people to move comfortably. A minimum passage aisle of 3’ | .91 m must be maintained between the edge of the bar counter and nearby cabinetry. G-Shape Kitchens have overall widths that range from 13’-16’ | 4-4.9 m and depths from 12’-15’ | 3.7-4.6 m. G-Shape Kitchens should be planned with an overall area of roughly 136 ft2 | 12.6 m2.

U-Shape Kitchens are continuous kitchen layouts that locate cabinetry and fixtures along three adjacent walls in a U-Shape arrangement. Flexible for multiple variations of lengths and depths, U-Shape Kitchen designs often incorporate central island counters for increased work space and table surfaces. A minimum central width of 5’ | 1.53 m must be provided for use, but it is recommended that this zone be enlarged to between 6’-8’ | 1.8-2.4 m to provide sufficient access and movement space for multiple people. U-Shape Kitchens have widths that range from 9’-12’ | 2.7-3.7 m and depths that vary as desired. U-Shape Kitchens should be planned with an overall area of roughly 107 ft2 | 10 m2.
