Designing your new kitchen can focus your attention and energy on colour schemes and styling your fittings. But it is also important to consider the practical aspects of your kitchen too. After all, the kitchen is the heart of the home. And if your new kitchen is to be a success, it needs to provide a suitable cooking environment. This is why choosing a layout to fit your space, and provide as much room as possible, is absolutely essential. And here at MLS Kitchens, we are Manchester’s leading kitchen experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to what is a P-Shaped kitchen layout?

What is a P-Shaped kitchen layout?

A P-shaped layout is a kitchen layout, where the units and cabinets are positioned around the edges of the room in a P shape. This means that cabinets and work-space will run down three walls of the room, and an additional cabinet or kitchen island will be positioned on the end. This kind of layout is popular in large kitchens, or open plan kitchens.

Advantages of a P-Shaped kitchen layout

So why would you choose a P-Shaped layout above other kitchen layout choices? Well, here are some key advantages:

  • the extra cabinets or islands used as peninsula provide much needed additional workspace
  • a breakfast bar or seating area can be incorporated into the design to make your kitchen a fantastic multi-purpose room
  • the fridge, the sink and the oven can be well spaced out so that they are easily accessible. This is important as these three points make up the Golden Triangle of kitchen design, as they are three most used parts of the kitchen.
  • the layout is effective in both traditional and contemporary kitchens
