U-Shaped Kitchen Cabinets
The kitchen with U-shape cabinets has a layout that resembles the letter U.
To design a kitchen with a kitchen set, homeowners need to prepare a room with three adjacent walls that are closed to each other.
The standard that can be used to design this type of kitchen set has a minimum center width of 5 ‘or 1.53 meters.
However, so that the owner can have more flexibility, this area can be enlarged up to 6’-8 ‘or equivalent to 1.8 to 2.4 meters.
Meanwhile, the optimal size of the kitchen is in the range of 107 ft2 or the equivalent of 10 square meters.
The general width of this kitchen set is in the range of 9′-12 ‘or equivalent to 2.7 to 3.7 meters according to the needs of the homeowner.
U-shaped kitchen is a kitchen that home seekers crave because the design offers so much space for cabinet placement.
This ‘U’ shaped kitchen places the supporting units on three sides of the room with the fourth side left open as an entrance or access to the family room.
This design can be combined with the dining area if the width of the room allows it.
Open spaces often present the opportunity to make a single ‘U’ arm a link that can be accessed from both sides, such as can be used as a breakfast bar, or as a double-sided storage area.
There is no specific reference to regulate where the stove, refrigerator, or sink is located; and the kitchen can be a combination of one or more existing layout designs.
For example, you could have an L-shaped kitchen with an island or peninsula concept, or with a Galley kitchen connected at one end.
In designing functional kitchens, the application of the triangle concept must be considered, which means the distance between the sink, stove, and refrigerator should not be more than 1200mm.
However, the concept of a triangle has now developed along with the development of kitchen performance which is increasing and the development of gadgets, and the birth of new equipment.
Compared to the era of the kitchen in the 1940s where the kitchen is a special place and is common for housewives, the development of the idea of kitchen design is now much more advanced.
The use of a microwave, a separate cooking stove with an oven, the existence of a special area to prepare food with an additional mini sink, and the work of the para team, has changed the traditional kitchen work triangle.
As the development of modern kitchens presents a new/specific task area, the idea of a secondary work triangle has become commonplace in kitchen performance systems.
This kitchen with U-shape cabinets is one of the most popular kitchen layouts among the public because it can save a lot of space on the shelves of the kitchen cabinets.
This kitchen cabinet with a U-shape places 3 activities on the sides of the wall which forms a U pattern.
A kitchen with a kitchen set in this form can be combined with a dining room or other room in the house.
You can use an open space concept or a concept with an open space that can be accessed on two sides so that you can easily access the kitchen room while doing activities in other rooms.
This kitchen with U-Shape cabinets is perhaps the most practical kitchen arrangement when compared to kitchens with other types of kitchen sets.
This kitchen space can provide more and more optimal storage because it has 3 sides that can also be used as shelves.
