Here at MLS Kitchens, we are Manchester’s leading kitchen design specialists. From contemporary kitchen design, to traditional, we have something for everyone. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about the L shaped kitchen layout, and the advantages of this.

What is an L-shaped kitchen layout?

Using two lines of cabinets to create an L shape is the principle behind this layout design. Either the walls, or one wall and a freestanding cabinet, can be used to create the two sides of the L-shaped kitchen layout. This means that large kitchens, medium sized kitchens, and even some small kitchens can make good use of this kitchen design, to add style and practicality to the room. And it’s a popular layout choice for both contemporary and traditional homes.

What are the advantages of an L-shaped kitchen layout?

So why would you choose an L-shaped layout? Well, this layout offers a couple of advantages, including:

  • Flexibility- Because an L shaped layout uses two sides to create the L shape, it can fit in any kind of space. A room with large feature windows, or a bi-fold door, or a room with sloped ceilings could be the perfect choice for this simple but practical layout.
  • Practicalities- Speaking of practicalities, the L-shaped layout offers plenty of space between the cabinets, and the key parts of the kitchen triangle: the sink, the oven, and the fridge. This makes it the most ergonomic kitchen layout, designed with the user in mind
  • Divide your kitchen- an L-shaped layout can be helpful in an open plan kitchen, where the freestanding unit or cabinet can be used to divide the cooking part of the kitchen, to the relaxing or entertainment area. A visual a practical barrier can help your kitchen be more practical.
