    When you’re thinking of renovating kitchens then there are many different important factors to consider. For instance it is very important to consider the countertops and what material they are going to be made of – this will have aesthetic value for your kitchen and will make it look more plush and luxurious or less so. Likewise it is important to consider the floor and wall tiles and what you want your kitchens to look like in this respect. These are all things you would also consider with bathrooms, and making sure to pick the best looking tiles and things will ensure that your new bathrooms and kitchens are built to last and look highly luxurious as well.

    However kitchens have more other considerations on top of just the colors and the materials when compared to bathrooms. In particularly when considering your kitchens you need to also bear in mind the layout of your countertops and this will affect how much space you have to move around the room as well as how you use the kitchens when you are preparing food.

    Fortunately for those remodeling their kitchens there are some guidelines and some basic choices to help navigate the process. Here are your options for kitchens layouts.

    L-Shape: The L-Shape kitchen layout is a classic layout for kitchens. Here you have the counter tops organized so that they roughly take the shape of the letter ‘L’. This then means that you have them down two walls – one against the sides of the wall along the length of the kitchen, and then another along the width of the wall at the end. This way the two lots of countertops are adjacent meaning you have lots of space, but a nice right angle where you can reach multiple surfaces down the end.

    U-Shape: The U-shape layout for kitchens is slightly different in that you have a series of countertops on both the two lengths (one more opposite the long one). This then means you have two ‘right angles’ where you have access to multiple surfaces, but it also takes up a lot of space and turns the kitchens into dead ends with only one way in and out. At the same time this way you can turn around and reach counters behind you.

    Corridor: In the corridor layout you have two opposite sets of counters and none on the ends. This is perfect for narrow kitchens and means you can easily turn around to reach multiple countertops. For large or square kitchens however this can leave them too far opposite.

    Island: The island layout means taking one of these other designs and then adding an island of counters into the middle. This can be used to store items or as more working space, but either way it allows you to have another surface for preparing food etc. The only drawback here is that of course these islands require a lot of space or they cause a kitchen to be very cramped.
