U-Shaped Kitchen Designs
The U-shaped kitchen is the kitchen that home seekers crave because the design offers so much space for cabinet placement.
The U-shaped kitchen places its 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.
In general, there are 6 kitchen layout designs;
1. 1 Wall (The One Wall).
2. The opposite (Galley).
3. L shape.
4. U shape.
5. Island concept.
There is no specific reference to set 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.
There are many interior design concepts to make the kitchen look more presentable and beautiful, one of which is by designing an u-shaped kitchen.
A U-shaped kitchen will greatly influence the use of a kitchen set and gives a neat and pleasant impression.
As the name implies, kitchen U is a kitchen room that has a shape resembling the letter U.
A kitchen with a concept like this is perfect for a fairly small space.
Basically designing a small kitchen to be comfortable and look special is not difficult if you can be a little creative.
U-shape kitchen design provides convenience when arranging and placing furniture or kitchen sets. The kitchen space also feels very neat and comfortable.
