”Avoid placing work spaces opposite each other so that two people can comfortably work together without getting in each other’s way or having to stand directly back to back,” she adds.
But plenty more will dictate the best kitchen layout for your space. Here’s how to choose which one’s right for you, based on your space, tastes, and more.
”This comes up a lot with marble countertops,” she says. ”They will show wear, chip a little bit, and have etching marks. There are certain personalities that are okay with that,” whereas others will want to rip it out immediately.
Before you get locked into a kitchen layout, experts suggest you look beyond available space and consider these crucial points, too.
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.
Basically a U-shape with an added peninsula, the G-shaped layout can be used in just about any size of kitchen. Best attached to an open-plan living area, this design allows for plenty of storage room, extra counter space and multiple cooks. Throw in some stools and you also have an ideal seating area when guests come to visit. Bear in mind that size does matter when it comes to the length of your bench — you don’t want your peninsula to be too long and thus make you feel trapped.
