The 4 Basic Layouts For Your Kitchen


Planning to build or remodel a new kitchen for your home? Whether you want to have free-standing or a fitted kitchen, there are common kitchen styles you should be aware of. Getting yourself acquainted with these different kitchen styles will help you determine which one is best suited for your home.


Here are the four kitchen layouts, which can be considered as basic or common layouts, you need to know.


1.       Country style kitchens

Country style kitchens basically look very homey. They have been established for more than a hundred years. These types of kitchens have large wooden work surfaces, butler sinks, and a stone floor to keep everything simple and clean.


Most country style kitchens have muted or cream colours. You will see a lot of wooden elements here as it gives a soft and warm feeling.


2.       Shaker style kitchens

Shaker kitchens were first made by a religious group called “Shakers.” This group made everything they needed with their hands with very simple details. This is where the Shaker kitchens started.


Expect to have lightly coloured and plain features in a Shaker kitchen. Clean lines, panelled doors are just some of the main features of a Shaker kitchen. Just like the country style kitchens, the shaker style kitchens also use a lot of wood.


3.       Open plan kitchens

Open plan kitchens combine the kitchen and dining room in one big space, most of the time separated by a kitchen bar or a kitchen island. This is a great way to maximise the space inside your home.


With the open plan kitchen, the importance of places is changed since this elevates the kitchen as the function centre and heart of homes.


4.       Contemporary kitchens

Looking for a kitchen with updated kitchen design and appliances? Then you should consider having a contemporary kitchen built in your home. These kinds of kitchens have the latest innovations in kitchen developments and feature cleverly designed spaces that combine spectacular visuals and practicality.


Sleek, uncluttered, and bound to have smart organizational features, you can have a contemporary kitchen that works and looks great for your family.


Now that you are aware of the different types of kitchen layouts, make sure that you ask a kitchen planner for proper guidance. You can also contact us for more information about fitted kitchens with your chosen kitchen layout.
