Designing your Dream Kitchen

Janine Mackie

Your kitchen is a multitasker, just like you. And designing a functional space depends on the specific roles you want it to fill. Pro appliances and ample marble counters may be a must for the serious gourmet cook, while gathering friends over chopping and wine translates into an inviting, warm setting with plenty of mingling room. 

In planning out your kitchen layout, consider the four essential zones: food preparation, washing, cooking, and storage, as well as an optional dining area. A functional plan will ensure everything is conveniently within reach, space is maximized, and work flows smoothly. Try starting with one of these four popular layouts in your kitchen, and customize as needed.

Two-line:

This split floor plan divides the kitchen into two parallel sections. Flexible and spacious, it’s a good choice for open-style kitchens.

L-shaped: 

The four or five zones are arranged in a semi-circular layout, clockwise or counterclockwise depending on foot traffic and preference. This universal design works well in any space or home style.

U-shaped: 

In this type of layout, the different zones face each other and are close together, with shorter distances. This design can save space in enclosed kitchens, and help section the kitchen off in an open layout.
