5 Common Kitchen Layout Shapes

by Waverly Wilde

When you walk into your kitchen it’s important that it makes you feel just right. Whether you are looking for a room that fills you with creativity or one that fuels you with the utmost motivation and focus, your place of cooking should be set up in such a way that it invokes you to pursue your goals. And the way that happens is more than just paint colors and decor – although that helps – it really comes down to the design layout and the appliances that fill it in. Explore these 5 different kitchen layouts and discover how these shapes can help you become the chef you’ve always wanted to be.



While this letter doesn’t stand for LOVE, you’ll really fall for it if you love interacting with guests. One of the biggest pros of having an L-Shaped kitchen means that there is more of an open space plan making it easier to interact with others. Usually this kitchen opens into another room such as the dining or living room allowing you to participate in the conversation. So, no more missing out on the fun because you were refilling the chips and dip!

Also, this popular setup is a natural work triangle, providing an efficient area to get things done. Because there are two adjacent walls and runs of cabinetry, you’ll find that this kitchen fits various styles from modern and even traditional. And when it comes to choosing your appliances, Bosch stainless steel products ALWAYS fit in with any style.



If you’re the type of person that uses the phrase “All hands-on deck” and recruits a lot of help from people in the kitchen, having a U-shaped kitchen may be beneficial for you. This versatile layout provides ample countertop space for a couple of people to be working on separate projects – perfect for hosting that pre-bake sale cooking event in your spacious kitchen.

If you’re looking for even more space for storage and cooking, opt for a Bosch double wall oven for a customized and organized look.



This layout is much like the U-shaped kitchen but with an additional partial fourth wall to give you the most cooking space possible. While these kitchens tend to feel large, they can also feel cramped, since you are surrounded by four walls. Make sure there is proper ventilation if you have one of these kitchens in your home so that the air is always fresh when you’re cooking for family and friends in this closed off space.



If you live in a condo, cottage, townhouse, or just smaller home in general, having a straight shaped kitchen layout is ideal for your space. With just a single wall of cabinets ans appliances, this layout provides you with the smallest amount of workspace than any other. Because of this, add a Bosch over-the-range microwave to your kitchen to really clear up some of that countertop space so you can prep without the hassle.



In this layout, there are two parallel walls that face each other, making this a 1 person kitchen – or very close for comfort 2 person kitchen. Just like the single, straight wall kitchen, your main goal will be trying to utilize as much space as possible so finding compact appliances that will take up less room are ideal for this design. This built-in dishwasher and range from Bosch are on the smaller side and help create a little more space for your kitchen mobility needs.


The shape of your kitchen shouldn’t hinder your cooking abilities, it should help them flow!
