Kitchen Layouts

A kitchen layout is more than a footprint of your kitchen—it's a blueprint for how your kitchen will function. In general, there are three types of kitchen layouts: U-shape, L-shape, and galley kitchens, plus various combinations of each. An open kitchen layout employing any one of the three standard layouts is another popular option.
