THE G-SHAPED KITCHEN
G-SHAPED KITCHEN DESIGNS
G-shaped designs usually work best in medium and large kitchens. Small kitchens don't have enough available space to add the extra segment without creating a barrier that prevents easy movement.
A G-shaped kitchen is almost exactly like a U-shaped plan. They both have appliances and counters that run along three walls. The G-shaped plan, however, has an additional countertop that juts out away from one side, creating a shape like a capital G.
Families often use this extra space as a breakfast nook. They can also use the extra section as a buffet for large dinners and holiday snacks.
The jut, which is much like an island but attached to the rest of the countertop, also offers additional cabinets and countertop space.
