The kitchen is the heart of the home, and the layout lays the groundwork for how functional your newly remodeled kitchen will be. When remodeling the kitchen, some choose to keep the existing layout to save money on the overall project but many homeowners choose to start entirely from scratch to achieve the kitchen design that works best for their space.
Selecting your cabinets, appliances, tile, flooring, appliances, and other materials are important, but where to configure them will impact your day-to-day use of the kitchen. Having a functional kitchen area is what will make your kitchen remodel a success.
When building new, Center Island Contracting has floor plans designed for lot sizes in your neighborhood, or we can design one with your preferences in mind.
L-shaped kitchens are a popular kitchen layout option, featuring the cabinetry placed in an L-shape and leaving open area in the middle of the kitchen for an island or a dining table. L-shape kitchens can be incorporated into many different size kitchen layouts and offer flexibility in design. L-shape kitchen designs establish a good workflow in the kitchen, with the refrigerator, stovetop and sink all located within steps away from each other for easy access.
Galley kitchens feature cabinets and appliances on each end of a long, narrow walkway. The countertops run parallel to each other in a galley kitchen, often used for kitchens that don’t have an abundance of space. Having all the kitchen features in one compact space ensures there’s enough storage and workspace to prep and cook.
Island kitchens are most common in large kitchen spaces, utilizing the larger amount of square feet in the kitchen to create a spacious built-in island. Islands have become mainstays in modern kitchens, offering a multi-purpose area for entertaining, homework, meal prep and even a dining area. They also provide storage space and can store kitchen features like wine refrigerators.
U-shaped kitchens feature the cabinetry configured in a U-shape on three sides, offering a lot of counterspace for those who like to cook. A U-shaped kitchen layout can provide multiple workstations, spread out enough that multiple people in the kitchen can fit comfortably. This is a good kitchen layout design for families.
