Interior Design - L-Shaped Kitchen Design & Inspiration
Stunning L-Shaped Kitchen Designs And Tips You Can Use From Them
A popular design choice for many kitchen layouts both large and small, an L-shaped kitchen,
consists of two walls of fitted worktops and units at a perpendicular angle.
When designing a functional kitchen, the ‘working triangle’ should be kept in mind - that is, the distance between your sink, stove and fridge. An L-shaped kitchen lends itself perfectly to this triangular tip, being two sides of a triangle to begin with. An L-shaped layout works best in small and medium sized spaces, which fly closer to the work triangle efficiency guideline of spreading workstations at no more than 1200mm apart.
A great kitchen is not all about rules though, it’s equally about how that space feels and inspires you to create fabulous food. This collection brings ideas for cabinet placement, shelving designs, statement backsplashes, eating areas and more.
Busy, busy, busy. A heavily patterned backsplash and zoned flooring are the stars of the show in this colourful kitchen. A small semi-circular breakfast bar has been implemented at one side of the room to allow guests to socialise with the busy chef, and as a spot for a quick snack or early morning coffee.
The wine rack in an L-shaped kitchen with peninsula. This time the vino is brought right to the bench. It might prove a challenge to stop at just one bottle *wink… wink…
If budget allows, open up your disused kitchen wall to the great outdoors with some retractable doors. The increased natural light and perceived space will truly transform your kitchen.
Colour coordinate. This yellow L-shaped kitchen with breakfast bar has a matching canary yellow fridge-freezer.
Powdery perfection. A flurry of blush pink accents and copper accessories speckle a perfect measure of contrast and warmth through powder blue decor.
Wrap a countertop down the side of the end cabinet for a sleek luxurious finish.
Cater to the space, and your budget. If monetary constraints don’t allow for the building of bespoke kitchen cabinets into eaves, then use up that awkward space by installing a wall of open kitchen shelving at waning lengths.
Choose larder units in one colour, with standard base and wall cabinets in another to break the look of a long wall.
A large potted plant makes a natural divide between the kitchen and dining spot.
Find inspiration in tradition.
Traditionally the kitchen sink was situated in front of a window, if one was available, like in this green kitchen. Although, in a modern age of dishwashers it doesn’t seem so important to always have the best view from here. A kitchen clock is another classic that’s been bumped. Digital oven displays and microwave clocks negate the need for analogue designs, however, they still make nice wall decoration.
Include a corner pantry. This red kitchen has an open shelving unit filled with pantry supplies that are both useful and decorative.
Make two separate rooms in one. With two walls to work with you could separate kitchen facilities from utilities by splitting the arrangement, like this kitchen with washing machine. Keep cooking, prep and food supplies on one arm of your L-shape, and place washing machines and utility cupboards for ironing boards, laundry supplies and baskets along the other.
Go with the flow. This completely wooden kitchen module extends its style to the hallway beyond. A matching wooden fascia flows over the adjacent wall and one interior door.
Simple and chic. A glowing wooden cut through between crisp white cabinets looks clean and inviting.
Create a party piece. The wine cooler that towers the full height of this black kitchen is certain to keep guests entertained!
