L Shaped Kitchen Designs
Choosing the right kitchen design for your home can be a challenge, but there is one design that fits a huge majority. Creating a classy, functional and also effortless look, the L shaped design could your dream layout. Whether you kitchen is big or small, this design can be included into almost every space, but how exactly do you incorporate it?
For those who lose storage when changing to this style, using an entire wall for storage purposes creates a fashion smart solution. Almost acting as a ‘feature wall’. It brings attention to your kitchen whilst also keeping everything in a place that fits. For those who lean towards a more open space look, glass doors on these storage units help to brighten up your kitchen and make it appear larger.
Open plan in collaboration in L shape
In order to introduce open plan, you want to try and restrict the kitchen to 2 walls. Which is why this style is so ideal! If it is in combination with a living area, keep any utilities such as a sink, dishwasher and oven the furthest wall away from the living area. This prevents heat form the oven or any noises to be distracting to those not in the kitchen space.
Move the ‘L’ away from the walls
L shaped kitchens do not have to be alongside a wall. Especially in open plan, having one side of the Shape creating a barrier between two rooms can be ideal. It can even act as a dining area. In order to do this chairs or stools can be kept around the counter, making your kitchen more practical whilst also saving space.
Use colours and patterns
Colours and patterns can be used to make your L shaped kitchen unique to your home. some popular designs include dark greys and white, incorporation of wood in traditional kitchens, and patterns through tiles to bring out personal and unique touches. for those that chose open plan, complimentary or matching colours to the living space can often work well and can give a more modern look to your home
