Ideally your U-shaped kitchen will have a window at the ‘U' end. This makes a great spot for the sink, allowing you to look out over your garden while you wash up without having wall units overhead. If you are looking for kitchen diner ideas, a U-shaped design is well worth considering. Depending on your space, it may be easy to incorporate a table and chairs at the opposite end of the U shape. Consider matching tabletop and worktops for a tailored look. Be guided by the size of your room and the light levels when deciding on the look, style and colour of your kitchen. In a smaller space with a central window it may pay to stick to a largely white scheme. Modern hi-gloss units will help to keep light levels up as will glazed tiles and stainless-steel surfaces. Larger kitchens may be more able to handle deep colour, dark wood finishes and even hits of pattern.
L-shaped kitchen layout. What is it? A truly versatile design, the L-shaped kitchen comprises two runs of cabinets at right angles along adjacent walls. Here you can create the ultimate working triangle with the fridge at one end of the L, the hob on the other and the sink in between. This layout feels open, but can be more tricky to work with. Make sure there's enough space in between each zone and consider installing a bank of built-in appliances on one side for ease of use and a streamlined effect. The best ergonomic placing has the hob on one wall, and the sink and fridge on the other, but do make sure there is adequate workspace between these elements. this can be an efficient layout for one cook, but two may find themselves under one another's feet – you could include an extra prep sink to ease the pressure. If space allows, you could also place a small dining table at the side. A classic layout that works in any size space, the L-shaped kitchen is practical, concise and looks great.
An island unit has lots to bring to a kitchen design. It can provide extra prep space and form a boundary between the cooking zone and the living/dining area. A shaped island unit can also help direct the flow of traffic away from busy hotspots. Functions aside, the change of pace offered by a kitchen island often encourages a variation in material. You can afford to be braver here with a bolder finish or colour, or perhaps a more expensive material that would be prohibitive across an entire room. An island will define a kitchen, forming a division between dining and living spaces. For this reason, at least the facing part of the island should be in warm and welcoming materials to make a transition from efficient kitchen surfaces.
