and How to Use Them
by Juliana Gordon
Remodeling your kitchen is an exciting prospect and a big decision that can change the feel of your entire home. Your new design needs to reflect the constraints of your house, while also providing you with the counter and cabinet space you’ll need to cook the way you want to.
Before you make the final call, take a look at these six popular kitchen layouts that people are using to give their homes a fresh, new feeling.
Since there is limited counter space is available, it’s a good idea to use a high dining table that can double as an extra countertop. Also, consider a smaller rolling table that you can easily pull out when you need it and put away later to save space.
The Galley Layout
This is a good layout to be used by a single chef, or two at the very most unless the kitchen is very long. With workspaces on both sides, a cook can easily set up a basic cooking triangle by having two elements on one wall and a third centered between them on the opposite wall.
The downsides to this layout include the lack of room for a kitchen table in between the walls, and crowding if too many people are moving through it.
