Know Your Kitchens: Three Common Kitchen Layouts

If you’ve ever done a search for information about different ideas for kitchen remodeling, you probably encountered an awful lot of layout and decorating terms you weren’t extremely familiar with. Don’t worry, this is normal!

Take a look at these three common kitchen layouts, and next time you see them, you will know exactly what they’re talking about—who knows, maybe you’ll even impress your friends with your kitchen knowledge. Maybe.

One Wall (Pullman Kitchen): This is the space-saving kitchen design. If you’re not a big cook or you only cook for yourself and you don’t want your kitchen to take up a lot of space in your home, this is a great choice.

It’s called “one wall” because everything related to the kitchen is tucked into a single length of wall: this includes appliances, countertops, and cabinets. Some homeowners are using this design but adding an island for a more inviting kitchen and to provide more workspace.

Galley: You’ve probably heard this term in reference to ships, and that’s where the idea comes from. It’s a walk through space lined with all of your kitchen needs. Appliances and countertops are on either side of a single path through the kitchen.

This is a great option for one or two people, but more than that and you could see your kitchen turn into a hallway—or an extremely cramped place to eat and cook!

L-Shaped: This one is common sense: it’s two countertops placed in an L-shape, meeting in one corner. It takes advantage of corner space to turn most of it into useable cabinet and counter room and it suits slightly larger kitchens.

The best part of an L-Shaped kitchen, though; is the room it leaves (depending on the size of your kitchen) for a kitchen table or island, making your kitchen more functional and/or multipurpose.
