Some people might not use the cooktop as much as others, or need separate stations for activities like juicing, baking, or making espresso. ”All those things factor in towards what counters will need the most bandwidth,” Black says.
On the other hand, if your intent is to create a family gathering space, room to comfortably hang out will take precedence over where to put your stove.
“This solution is most suitable for narrow spaces and small households, where only one, or a maximum of two, people work in the kitchen at a time,” says Vayo. “With all appliances and cabinets against one wall, the work triangle is reduced to a straight line.”
”They love designing kitchens, and they’re super educated about how to make the most of the space and about what’s safe,” says Angela Lawrence, a certified master kitchen and bath designer (CMKBD) and member of the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) in Aurora, Colorado.
“Everything is moving towards a more open-plan style,” says Daniel Bertuccio of Eurolinx. The L-shape is ideal for this, as well as being one of the most modern kitchen designs and efficient layouts. Comprising two adjacent countertops, the style suits both small and medium kitchens. A big plus is that the L-shape easily supports the working triangle – the imaginary line between the sink, cooktop and fridge. However, be aware that applying this style in a large kitchen can mean your appliances are spread out too widely, disrupting the efficiency of the design.
Before you choose a kitchen designer, make as many general design decisions as possible. Setting clear goals, even if you can’t envision them in final form, will improve communication with your designer, and designers’ responses to your goals may determine your final choice of the professional whom you hire. General goals can include more light, an eating area, deeper counter space, a separate sink for produce and flower arranging, a baking area and home office space. Making a list before you choose a designer helps you clarify how you want your kitchen to function once the work is completed and helps a designer create a responsive overall plan. Decisions like blue vs. brown tiles will come later, but a complete list is key to creating a master design plan.
