Define the right kitchen footprint for you

When you’re in the wrong kitchen for your needs, it shows! Appliances are too far away, people are falling all over each other and it’s difficult to pull together the simplest of meals. That’s why kitchen designers know that every home dynamic deserves its own kitchen layout.

The Social Butterfly

If your dream day involves whipping up a 4-course feast while having a chat with your friends, then the Horseshoe Kitchen is right for you. Featuring 3 walls of kitchen cabinets, countertops and appliances, this kitchen layout offers maximum work and hangout space. In today’s kitchens, the layout is enhanced with a kitchen island surrounded by bar stools.

Family First Frame of Mind

If you’re a new, or busy parent who needs to keep one eye on your next meal and the other on the kids, the best kitchen layout to spend time with the whole family in is the G-Shape Kitchen. Featuring a peninsula that connects the kitchen to the living room, this kitchen also offers a wealth of counter space. Furthermore, the functionality of the peninsula can be increased by transforming it into a breakfast bar. Just add seating!

Busy Bee

If army-like efficiency is the name of the game, then the lean layout of a Galley Kitchen is what’s in order. Characterised by a set of parallel walls, countertops and cabinetry, the walkthrough design puts everything (and everyone) in their place. Perfect for small spaces, galley kitchens are often found in older homes because they simply make the best use of every square metre available. There’s a reason why they use them in ships!

Centre of All the Action

The active family knows that an L-Shape Kitchen layout is the only one that will prevent sibling-on-sibling collisions. High traffic kitchens not only have to be durable, they must have ample counter space and prevent families with growing children from living on top of each other. The L-shape configuration achieves this by ensuring no foot traffic crosses through the workspaces!
