    Everything in this slideshow

    • Ceiling-High Cabinets

      This kitchen makes use of a long, narrow space, resulting in a functional design. Kitchen islands, such as this green one with a stovetop, can provide additional counter space and make the kitchen seem more compact and cohesive. Honey-tone wood cabinetry and hardwood floors bring the kitchen back to its 1930s roots. For your own L-shaped kitchen remodel, use ceiling-height kitchen cabinets as a good solution for storing seldom-used or seasonal items.

    • Small Kitchen Island

      Sometimes, what isn't there is just as important as what is when it comes to designing a kitchen. Here, a pass-through was used in place of a door, making room for lower kitchen cabinets and additional counter space. In your own L-shaped kitchen remodel, use small kitchen islands like this one with a curved form to create room for dining or a surface for friends to lean on while the chef cooks.

    • White Country Kitchen

      Arched window openings, inspired by the use of arches elsewhere in this home, create instant visual interest in this charming kitchen. A chocolate-brown tile kitchen backsplash frames the windows and offsets classic white cabinets while traditional saltillo tiles cover the floor. For an L-shaped kitchen remodel, try these narrow, open shelves between the upper cabinets—a great solution for storing wine that doesn't require temperature control.

    • Storage-Filled Island

      To keep this small kitchen looking open and airy, upper cabinets were kept to a minimum, which also allows more natural light to penetrate the room. To compensate for the lack of storage in a L-shaped kitchen remodel project, try narrow kitchen islands like this one, fitted with a combination of open shelves and closed cabinets. Note the use of the labor- and step-saving pot-filler faucet next to the range. Pot-fillers are a relatively easy plumbing addition.

    • Island Prep Area

      Prep kitchen islands, such as this one with a raised breakfast counter, can hold center stage. In this L-shaped kitchen remodel project, a wall formerly dividing the kitchen and dining area is removed. The new arrangement replaces a cramped U-shape layout that herded a single cook into a dark corner of the home. The addition of a skylight brings much-needed natural light into the space, shedding light on the clean-lined kitchen cabinets.

    • Galley Kitchen Makeover

      The removal of a wall during this L-shaped kitchen remodel project transformed the home's galley kitchen into a far more functional and accommodating shape and created room for a handsome, multipurpose island. The choice of materials, including butcher block, soapstone, and brick add a lot of visual interest to the simple white cabinets.

    • Vibrant Blue Kitchen

      This clever cabinet treatment and sink placement in what would otherwise be an under-utilized corner of this vibrant blue kitchen is a valuable lesson in making every space count. Shelves and racks elsewhere provide needed storage while maintaining an open layout, allowing homeowners to make the most of counter space. Try using a bright paint color to liven up your own L-shaped kitchen remodel project.
