We come across customers each day who want to improve their kitchen interior design but they are stuck on the design. The thought of ripping out the old kitchen and placing in a new one fills people with dread but the final result definitely makes it worthwhile.

At the Chilai Kitchens we love seeing our customers satisfied with their new, stylish kitchen.

If you are thinking of transforming your kitchen, we have made a list of 4 kitchen layout ideas that you will completely love in your home.

It will give you a touch of inspiration if you are just thinking about a new kitchen.

Zone Design

Zone design kitchens are quite normal and they are at the fore front for kitchen layout ideas.

Basically it splits the kitchen into various zones so nothing overlaps or gets in the way of anything. For example you have a cleaning zone (the sink), cooking zone (oven and hob) and eating (kitchen table to breakfast bar). Kitchens in common have this design but they are not always part into proper zones. With some great looking replacement kitchen doorways you can also create a fluid feel to the kitchen so it doesn’t give off an impression to be split into various sections and disjointed.

With this kitchen design you can compartmentalize every kitchen task to create a cluster free and clean environment. It is best used for large kitchens as it requires some space so it will probably not work with a gallery kitchen design.

Gallery Kitchen Layout

This is truly made for smaller kitchens. We have spoken about expanding space in gallery kitchens before on this blog and with this layout you can create a good looking room if you are stuck for space.

A gallery kitchen design consists of two straight runs down the room and it looks more like a corridor than an open spaced kitchen. There is no space for eating because of space constraints so it contrasts from the zone design in this regard but for apartments and small houses it is an incredible way to design a kitchen.

You generally have the oven and cabinets on one side of the ‘corridor’ and the sink and cooker on the other with worktop space above and overhead. If you have a small kitchen and feel that it is too open plan then this plan can make it more useful.

U Shaped Kitchen

This is an extraordinary design if you need interaction when cooking in the kitchen.

It is portrayed by an island in the middle of the room with everything else on the outside of U shape. In addition it also provides great space in the room and a place to sit down for a quick meal on the island in the center but it is an open plan. It has a lot of storage space with kitchen cupboards and room to move around in so if you have a few people preparing a dinner at the one time and others simply sitting about then it is a good way to guarantee that everybody has sufficient space.

It requires a greater kitchen to work effectively but if you have the space, then a U shaped kitchen is surely one of our recommended kitchen layout ideas.

L Shaped Kitchen

Lastly we have the L molded kitchen.

If you want some privacy when cooking in the kitchen then this is a great choice. The worktops are essentially designed in a L shape with counter tops at two perpendicular walls.

It is a great way to include some space in smaller rooms because the practical aspects of the kitchen are bound to the L shape so there are two worktops that join with one being the cooking space (oven, hob and so on… ) and the other being the cleaning space (sink).

It is a really adaptable design where you can include it into a bigger kitchen as well but it looks better if you just have a small space to work with. That being said, putting a kitchen island or even dining table into the center of the room can work with reducing space and keeping away from a sparse look.
