“The L-shaped kitchen layout works best for those who are wanting to merge their dining table with their kitchen area,” says Martin. “You can use this to create a separate eat-in kitchen or as a part of an open living area.”
For instance, if your goal is to create a chef’s paradise, you may sacrifice seating space to make room for large and luxe range appliances.
For artificial lighting, Black personally avoids recessed cans, and has purchased products from Schoolhouse Electric and Rejuvenation. She prefers to install alternative styles such as surface mounts, sconces, and under-cabinet strips, aiming for ”focused lights in meaningful places.” Installing a dimmer switch ensures lights can be task-oriented, as well as atmospheric.
Still, you’ll need to resist the urge to cram as much as you can into this layout. For instance, you’ll need to plan a minimum of 47 inches between opposite kitchen units so that doors and drawers can be opened freely from both sides at a time, says Vayo.
That shouldn’t come as a shock. An island can ensure a strong and efficient work triangle if it contains your sink, cooking unit, or refrigerator. Plus, it can provide an extra surface for dining, doing homework, or making cocktails.
For starters: ”The size of the kitchen will largely determine the layout, since many kitchen functions require certain amounts of space around them to be the most efficient,” explains Nancy Vayo, senior interior design leader for Ikea North America.
