L-shaped kitchens are ideal for smaller kitchens as they are functional and easily suit a two wall set up. An L-shaped kitchen is a popular layout as it tucks neatly in the corner of your home while still remaining open to the surrounding space. L-shaped kitchens are also able to act as a wall divider between the kitchen and the living area. Here are some L-shaped kitchen design ideas to consider for your next kitchen renovation.

Floor Plan
An L-shaped kitchen provides maximum flexibility in cooking, dining and entertaining as the set up contains an open zone. An L-shaped layout can be adjusted to any length and can easily divide the kitchen into multiple work sites with an open planned layout. Make the most of the centre of your L-shaped kitchen by adding a kitchen island which also provides storage or a dining table for an eat-in kitchen.

Work Space
The traditional kitchen triangle work flow is longer and more challenging in a larger spaced L-shaped kitchen as appliances can be too spread out. If your kitchen has enough space for an island, it can create three distinct work zones, making it easier for multiple cooks to work without collision, especially in the free flowing layout. In a small kitchen, consider featuring a breakfast bar which can double as a preparation area and dining space.

If you have a large area to work with, an L-shaped kitchen layout means an extended wall for storage units as cabinets can easily be expanded according to the length. Consider incorporating a walk-in pantry in the corner of your kitchen along with a small appliance unit so you can easily pack kitchen items away for more bench top space. Make the most of your L-shaped kitchen by installing floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, meaning you will have an extra row of cupboards for storing kitchen items.

Create the illusion of more space with ample kitchen lighting. In a kitchen layout with less preparation space, adequate task lighting and ambient lighting is essential. Add visual impact to the kitchen with pendant lighting above your kitchen island or dining table and install under-mounted down lights underneath your cabinetry for your cooking work space.
