U-Shaped Kitchens

Here is a kitchen that lends itself to being adjacent to the family room or an informal breakfast or snack area.  In some installations one "arm" of the U can be used as an island or peninsula separating the kitchen area from the eating area.  It can also keep onlookers out of the main work area, however still open to allow traffic and conversations.

U-shaped kitchens are usually smaller in size.  It's difficult to have room for a kitchen table and chairs.  Moving the refrigerator out of the main U shape can give you additional room for more food and cookware storage near the range and ovens.

Adding an island to the U-shaped kitchen can be an option.  Industry guidelines recommend at least 3-1/2 feet between the island and surrounding cabinets so that doors can open properly and you and your guests can maneuver in the kitchen . With the added island you increase the kitchen's functionality.  The island can be used for a work surface, seating, cooktop, or the sink can be put there, and allow for conversations and the ability to keep an eye on family/guest activities.

Some people still prefer a more open floor plan that allows for more guests and family to mingle and work in the kitchen.  Others like having a straight shot to the dining room or an outdoor space.
