When selecting the optimal cabinetry for your new kitchen, it’s best to begin by looking at its layout. That is, how your kitchen’s countertop, appliances, and storage areas are arranged. The resulting areas is what’s known as the “work triangle” of your kitchen, or the typical path that someone makes when going from stove to sink to refrigerator when cooking a meal.
Essentially, the modern kitchen comprises one of the five typical setups – the G, L, U, single and gallery layouts. Although space and efficiency can vary by floor plan, any kitchen can be augmented by having the optimal cabinetry arrangements for its space.
For your own remodeling project, check out these five kitchen layouts and see which one comes closest to your current set-up. When looking at each layout, pay particular attention to the work triangle that will result in your room. You might even notice that there’s a way to re-arrange your entire kitchen floor plan to better accommodate the flow of traffic. In either case, you’ll be able to improve and optimize your layout by using the right cabinetry.
