L-Shape Kitchen

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.

Common Questions
What is an L-Shape Kitchen layout?
L-Shape Kitchens are common kitchen layouts that use two adjacent walls, or an L configuration, to efficiently array the various kitchen fixtures. L-Shape Kitchens are flexible and are often paired with a kitchen table or a central island.
What are the factors to consider when planning a kitchen layout?
The first factor to consider is the available space and intended use of that space as all people cook and use kitchens differently. After, comes placement of necessary appliances such as a dishwasher, refrigerator, and sink. Between these appliances, specific areas should be designated to indicate prepping, cooking, baking, and to organize tools among these zones. Other important factors include the availability of a work surface, efficient storage, and quality lighting.
How much clearance is required in front of an L-Shape Kitchen?
L-Shape Kitchens must have a minimum clearance aisle of 3’6” | 1.07 m, but it is recommended that a clearance width between 4’-6’ | 1.2-1.8 m should be provided in order to provide sufficient access to the kitchen equipment.
How do you design a small kitchen?
A single row or one-wall kitchen is considered the most suitable layout for a small kitchen. All necessary equipment and storage can be found in this design although it is noted to be lacking in sufficient counter space. A kitchen cart with the top surface used as a butcher block can be an efficient addition. An L-shaped layout is another option for designing a kitchen within a small space by maximizing the use of a corner. In both cases, the opposite empty wall can feature a table that can fold down when not in use.
How big is an L-Shape Kitchen?
L-Shape Kitchens should be sized with an area of roughly 111 ft2 | 10.3 m2. L-Shape Kitchens should be sized generally with options available to include a kitchen table or an island. Common lengths of L-Shape Kitchen layouts range from 8’-13’ | 2.4-4 m in the long direction and 3’-9’ | .9-2.7m in the short direction.
What is modular kitchen design?
Modular kitchen design features small modules that together, form a kitchen that increases space, storage, and efficiency. The layout of a modular kitchen can be broken down into set sections and as such, make for easy installation and repetition in production. For example, a modular kitchen cabinet is a stand alone and pre-made element that can enhance functionality for the user by meeting individual needs.
