Basic Kitchen Layouts
There are four main kitchen layouts: “Galley,” “L,” “U,” and “G” (Peninsula). Each accommodates a work triangle in its own way.
Efficient, but counter space is limited and foot traffic can be disruptive.
Popular. No foot traffic crosses through work triangle. Lots of counter space.
Surrounds the cook with appliances and counter space. Ideal for an island if the “U” is big enough.
Cozy. Lots of counter space. Links the kitchen to the dining area with a common counter surface.
