Advantages of the L-shaped kitchen layout

One of the most economical kitchen configurations for the modern day home is the L-shaped kitchen. L-shaped kitchens provide a simple and effective workspace – appliances and cabinets can be installed along right angled walls, opening up the centre area.

Great working triangle

The most effective kitchen designs make use of the working triangle. The working triangle enables you to move freely between your sink, oven/cooktop and refrigerator. The working triangle promotes work stations around two different walls in an L-shaped kitchen. Since you don’t have to walk too far to reach different zones, it makes meal prep an efficient process too!
