U Shape Kitchen Design- Brisbane

About the U shape kitchen

A U-shaped kitchen is made up of space on three adjoining walls, two parallel walls perpendicular to a third. It is commonly known as a C shape or J shape kitchen also. This kitchen configuration functions really well with the kitchen work triangle, ensuring only a small distance between each work zone.

This kitchen design maximises the use of all available space for storage and benchtops. The U shape kitchen works well when one 'leg' or bench is opened up to an adjoining room to create a more open plan living area or another option is to add a servery window.
