Kitchens are one of the most important rooms in a house. When buyers or guests enter a home, they expect to be “wowed” by the home’s kitchen. Depending on your home’s space, you can choose from over six popular kitchen layouts to “wow” your buyers and/or guests. Let’s take a look!
Most Popular Kitchen Layouts:
Layout No. One: Pullman Kitchen/One-Wall Kitchen.
In most cases, you will see a Pullman kitchen inside of a studio or loft. Generally speaking, Pullman kitchens often tend to be the most space-saving type of kitchen on this list. You will find that all cabinets and appliances are on one wall in a Pullman kitchen. In more updated and modern versions, you may find a Pullman kitchen with an island to provide more counter space. Unfortunately, the Pullman kitchen offers the least amount of counter space but works well in smaller spaces.
Layout No. Two: Galley Kitchen.
Galley kitchens are a popular choice for apartments and they tend to work well for one cook households. A galley kitchen is quite like a hallway with cabinets and appliances on either side. You can walk through a galley kitchen like you would a hallway. They are great for homeowners who want to take advantage of all of the space and provide more counter space and cabinetry than the Pullman kitchen.
Layout No. Three: L-Shaped Kitchen.
L-shaped kitchens have mastered the art of corner space. The L-shape kitchen includes two walls and the corner in between them. This look is perfect for small or medium-sized kitchens. The L-shape kitchen tends to be a more open concept and makes it easier to have guests intermingle with the cook.
Layout No. Four: Horseshoe Kitchen.
In the horseshoe design, you use all three of your walls for cabinets and appliances. If you think of the L-shaped design, just add one more wall and you have the horseshoe design. It is great for guests as well because it has an open concept.
Layout No. Five: Kitchen Island.
We absolutely love kitchen islands. They provide working space and room for extra storage and appliances. You can even make yourself an eat-in-kitchen by adding seating to your island. A lot can be accomplished with an island. You can even add an island into nearly every kitchen (except galley).
Layout No. Six: Peninsula Kitchen.
To image a peninsula kitchen, you will need to imagine the L-shaped kitchen. Now, off of the end of the L, you have your island. The Peninsula looks similar to a horseshoe kitchen, but it provides the functionality of an island.
