U Shape Kitchen Design

About the U shaped kitchen

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

Kitchen Renovation Enquiry

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. Another popular option is to add a servery window through to dining or living areas.

Benefits

  • Efficient for a small to medium kitchen space
  • Plenty of bench space
  • No through traffic to disrupt work zones
  • A wide 'U' can support a kitchen island
  • Can convert one cabinet leg into a breakfast bar
  • Maximises use of space available

Disadvantages

  • Not efficient for large kitchens without an island addition - too far between benches
  • Bottom corner cabinets need careful consideration to avoid access issues
  • Care needs to be taken in the kitchen renovation design process to ensure ovens, cabinets and drawers don't clash
