Perfect Layout For Your Kitchen

Small Kitchen Layout and Design Optimization Tips:

Drawing a good layout plan is the first step toward designing a small kitchen.
Your layout of the kitchen depends on the number of walls that you have where you can align your counter. It can be Linear, L-shaped, U-shaped, Gallery, G-shaped kitchen, or Island kitchen. Analyze your space and prepare the basic layout of the counter.

If your small kitchen is already groaning with shelves, racks, and appliances, these solutions will help you maximize your tiny kitchen space:

  • Use every nook and cranny
  • Make use of color
  • Use mobile furniture
  • Use space around doors and appliances
  • Use the windows
  • Use custom cabinetry
  • Play with patterns

Keep the basics of the kitchen which is the work triangle in your mind while preparation of the layout.

Normally there are two types of work triangle.
Work triangle between hob/cooking range, sink and the refrigerator and the other work triangle will be your preparation area, sink and the cooking range. Your preparation area can be the landing area as well, where you can put things after taking them out from the refrigerator.
If you are living in a building apartment the kitchen size must be somewhere around 5 feet by 7 feet or 6 feet by 8 feet or somewhere near to this.
This size is really small for the kitchen. Because it carries an entire load of your house. It needs a lot of space for storage other than cooking preparation and placing a refrigerator.
The best layout for a kitchen is U-shaped, but generally, for a smaller kitchen, we get an L-shaped kitchen to work with.
While working in a smaller kitchen, place your refrigerator outside your kitchen, if you don’t use it frequently while preparation of a meal. By doing this you can have some more storage space.
