L-Shaped Kitchens

Reclaim your unused corner space with the right L-shaped kitchen design.

By: Caroline Shannon-Karasik

The L-shaped kitchen is often the ultimate solution for maximizing odd corner spaces in a corner-style layout. The L-shaped kitchen can be seen in large and small kitchen designs with two adjoining walls that are lined with countertops, cabinets and appliances.

This design also creates an open flooring plan, making it easy to move about the space or create a transitional kitchen where the area easily leads to a sit-down dining space or breakfast nook. This kitchen is suitable for a wide range of kitchen styles, including a family-oriented design or one that is suitable for entertaining guests.

The L-shaped kitchen's open atmosphere allows for a wide range of colors and textures. Choose light cabinetry paired with a mosaic backsplash and stainless steel appliances or white cabinets with dark wood floors and retro appliances for a vintage style L-shaped kitchen.

Large L-shaped kitchens may have room to accommodate a small kitchen island. If this is the case in your kitchen, then consider incorporating an extra sink space if you regularly prepare food, or try pub-style seating on one side of the island for casual dining.
