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.
