All about designer kitchens Manchester
Kitchen design is all about the flow. Listed below are four common kitchen layouts which allow for easy flow. Each design has its own advantages and each can be further developed incorporating other designs.Do you want to learn more? Visit KK Centre .
One Wall Kitchen:
The One Wall Kitchen is simple and inexpensive. While it does not use the classic triangle (sink-oven-refrigerator), all work zones are aligned along one wall creating an unimpeded flow. Typically, the One Wall Kitchen needs to be at least eight feet in length in order fit in the three major appliances. The One Wall Kitchen is cheap because less counter space means less granite and cabinetry to install. This compact style creates an aligned flow and space in the kitchen for table or bar area and can be further developed with The Galley or L-Shaped Design.
The Galley Kitchen is similar to the One Wall Kitchen, but doubled. The Galley needs to be carefully designed in order to keep an open feel since the long narrow format can be claustrophobic. The work triangle is easily incorporated into this style with a few variations. Often the kitchen sink is placed on an outer wall in order to have a window over it. The flow of this style is also unimpeded with a direct line.
The L Shaped Kitchen is a versatile design with appliances along two perpendicular walls. The L shape kitchen may have walls of equal length but most often has one longer wall and a shorter one which helps to create a perfect work triangle. One advantage is that this formation allows a flow for two people to be working in the kitchen without getting in each other's way. This is a great design and flow when the area is limited in wall space and works well when incorporating a sitting area or dining area into the kitchen. It can be further developed by adding an island.
The U Shaped Kitchen is a common design used in many larger kitchens. It includes three walls which allow for maximum cook and preparatory area along with extra storage. The homeowner has options as to where the work triangle is placed and multiple variations when incorporating the minor appliances. The sink is often located at the base of the U to allow access from either counter. This probably creates the easiest flow of traffic because of the increase of space and work area. An advantage to this design is that it allows for multiple people to be in the kitchen area.
