Welcome to our gallery featuring a massive collection of beautiful rectangular kitchens.
The rectangle is one of the most common layouts for kitchens, mostly because most modern homes are comprised of rectangular rooms.
The cabinetry might not be arranged in a rectangle, instead forming a G-shape, L-shape, or even just a single linear set of floor and wall cabinets.
This collection features all different styles of kitchens, from ultra modern to rustic-contemporary. You’ll see kitchens with patterned flooring, custom ceilings, high-end appliances, and many other incredible details.
For example, the above kitchen features floral wall paper, custom marble flooring, and cottage style cabinetry with subtle flourishes carved into the sides.
Many of the kitchens featured in this gallery are galley style, being the most perfect examples of a rectangular kitchen, but even larger, more open concept kitchens are included.
Look for the ways in which small kitchens are made to feel more spacious, or large open concept kitchens are made to feel distinct from the other rooms surrounding them.
Study the ways in which color effects the design, or the ways in which design elements play off one another to create a unique design style.
We’ve even included several 3-D rendered concept kitchens, which tend to utilize bolder colors, so you can get an idea of how using such a bold color scheme will look in your own kitchen.
Our hope is that you’ll be able to find a variety of ideas in this gallery and combine them to find your dream kitchen design!
