The Galley Kitchen

This efficient layout is also called a walk-through kitchen and is ideal for smaller spaces or one-cook kitchens. It is characterized by two walls opposite of each other, or two parallel countertops with a walkway running between them. A major benefit of a galley kitchen is the simplicity of the cabinets. With no corner cabinet to configure, you are able to save on your cabinetry budget!

The Horseshoe Kitchen

This layout is great for traffic and workflow, which is ideal if you have more than one cook working at a time. The configuration has three walls of cabinets or appliances that form a U-shape. Modern kitchens have evolved this floor plan to be similar to an L-shaped kitchen with cabinets on two walls and the island forms the third “wall.”

The L-Shaped Kitchen

The L-shaped kitchen is ideal for small- and medium-sized kitchens. It maximizes corner space and is versatile, as it consists of countertops on two perpendicular walls which form the L. With this layout, you’ll eliminate traffic, and it’s a great floor plan for an eat-in kitchen, as it easily supports a dining area.  However, if you have a large kitchen space to work with, this plan would not be optimal, as it would not use your space efficiently.

The Island Kitchen

Kitchen islands are incredibly functional and convenient for all your cooking needs. They add additional work surfaces, can include appliances or a sink, and extra cabinetry for storage. They can also provide a place to eat or even a small wine cooler to store beverages. Kitchen islands are very popular; however, it is important to consider the reality of your space and make sure you don’t install one without the square footage, which would make your kitchen seem very crowded.
