“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.”
We always prefer daylight whenever possible,” says Black. When she’s organizing the layout, she ensures the kitchen takes advantage of natural light and exterior views. In one of her past kitchen designs, this meant floating shelves across a nearly six-foot window, so that the homeowner could get the incoming light, extra storage, and have easy access to dishes for plating meals.
Talking about the scope of the project should include a candid discussion about budget. ”I call it a spending plan, because budget is sort of a scary-sounding word,” Lawrence says. ”Spending plan is much friendlier.”
“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.
”Clients can go to all the kitchen showrooms and all the contractors and say, ’Here’s my kitchen design. What’s my price?’” Dick says. ”Then they’re shopping price, they’re not shopping design.”
”The kitchen should have some tie-in so it doesn’t look like it was just dropped from the sky,” says Black. Neither does she believe the kitchen has to ”match.” If you’re drawn to a particular trend, think about why you like it and try to adapt the trend to the home’s existing style, rather than just copying it.
