About L-Shape Kitchens
In an L-shaped kitchen, the cabinets occupy two of the room’s adjacent walls. The function of the kitchen triangle is preserved, and there may be extra space for another table or an island, provided it doesn’t intersect the triangle, and depending on the size of the room. These smaller, more casual eating areas are commonly referred to as breakfast nooks or breakfast areas.
Many homes and apartments—41% by our survey’s account—have an L-shape kitchen, making it one of the most cooked-in environments. Many people love the L-shape kitchen design, although there are plenty of detractors, too.
In this article, we’ll give you all sorts of ideas about how to think about remodeling your L-shape kitchen or making a new kitchen that’s ready for anything.
Oh, The Counterspace
L shape kitchens are heaven for those who love counter space. No matter the material, there’s an ample number of flat surfaces to put appliances or dishes. L shape kitchens look especially beautiful when they’re freshly cleaned—something about the counter space gives them a positive glow.
L shape kitchens are also aggressively useful, too. Between easy access to the sink and the stovetops with a few steps, you can run an entire restaurant’s worth of cooking from your L shape kitchen, provided that you have the right help.
L shape kitchens typically have plenty of storage space, although the exact positioning of the counter space determines whether the storage space is underneath the counter or above the counter, in cabinets. Of course, there are also many L shape kitchens which have storage space in both areas.
Ready To Entertain
L shape kitchens can work well with a variety of lighting options, cabinet materials, countertop materials, and floor materials. They can also work with practically any appliance setup, range setup, refrigerator size, or specialized sink configuration. There’s enough space to have it all if you want it.
If you’re planning a new L shape kitchen, think about how your lighting will affect the way your kitchen looks during the times you’re most likely to be there.
For most, this means that L shape kitchens have an artificial light which brightly illuminates the entire work area, as relying on the natural light would leave too many shadows. This goes double for L shape kitchens that have cabinets above the countertop; in the best L shape kitchens, there will be lights beneath these cabinets to account for the shadows that they cast.
While this may seem like a bummer at first, keep in mind that L shape kitchens can also look beautiful in the dark, with dimmed lights or candles—not something that every kitchen can lay claim to.
