Kitchen Layouts Part Eight

Posted by Nathan Lincoln on 12/30/2010 to Blog

Finally the fourth style is the 'island' layout. This does not really dictate all of the kitchen layout, but rather just one feature of it – that being an 'island' made of one or a few cabinets all placed in the middle of the room for you to reach. This then creates countless different work stations as it means you have several points where you can be stood between the island and the cabinets against one of the walls. At the same time you can stand in one of the triangle work stations in a right angle and then have the island behind you as well.

The only downside of this kitchen layout is that the island will take up the space that you would otherwise have used for moving around in and this can make it quite restrictive. As such this kind of layout is only really suited to larger kitchens that have a large amount of space in the center.
