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.

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.
