U-Shape Island Kitchen
Dimensioned layout drawing of a U-Shape Kitchen plan with central island

U-Shape Kitchen Islands are continuous kitchen layouts that locate cabinetry and fixtures along three adjacent walls around a centralized island counter.

A minimum aisle width of 3’6” (1.07 m) must be provided for use, but it is recommended that this zone be enlarged to between 4’-6’ (1.2-1.8 m) to provide greater access and movement space for multiple people around the island. U-Shape Kitchen Islands have widths that range from 15’-18’ (4.6-5.5 m) with overall depths and island dimensions that vary as needed. U-Shape Kitchen Islands should be planned with an overall area of roughly 155 ft2 (14.4 m2).

L-Shape Island Rectangle Kitchens

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).

Broken Peninsula Kitchen

Broken Peninsula Kitchens are kitchen layouts that split cabinetry and fixtures along two parallel walls with one wall ending in an extended bar counter. Based on the G-Shape Kitchen layout, Broken Peninsula Kitchens remove kitchen equipment from the back wall for greater movement space or for passage.

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 offer additional 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. Broken Peninsula Kitchens have an overall width that ranges from 10’-13’ (3-4 m) with a depth from 12’-15’ (3.7-4.6 m). Broken Peninsula Kitchens should be planned with an overall area of roughly 109 ft2 (10.1 m2).

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).
