Designing Fitted Spaces - Kitchens
Written by richart khalil   

The application of the work triangle results in a number of layouts that are suitable for areas of different shapes and sizes.

kitchen layouts

  1. One-wall or Single-line kitchen is most satisfactory for small open-plan houses and apartments. The work pattern is difficult and tiring in this type of kitchen. Place the sink in the center with the refrigerator and stove at the opposite ends. At least 3m of wall space is needed.
  2. Corridor or Galley kitchen is efficient in terms of space utilization where you can place the maximum counter space in the smallest space. These kitchens are best for long narrow rooms and typical of many apartments. Allow a minimum of 120 cm between facing units for access.
  3. L-shaped kitchen is adaptable to any interior. It can form an efficient work triangle and diverts traffic to some extent. The sequence of centers should be planned: from storage to clean-up to cooking to service. The open end is used as an eating area.
  4. U-shaped kitchen is the most efficient and functional of the kitchens plans. It is compact, reduces the number of wasted steps. The center may include any work center.
  5. The kitchen-in-the-Round is similar to the U-shaped kitchen, especially suitable for garden-type or country kitchens. Its main disadvantage is that appliances, usually rectangular, must be custom-fitted into its circular spaces.
  6. Island layout groups some of the main kitchen functions at a central workstation; this type of layout requires the most floor area but is ideal for inclusive, sociable kinds of kitchen activity.

With any of the layouts, social interaction in a key factor. If you like to work alone, you should go for the corridor or U-shaped kitchen. On the other hand, if you enjoys the company of others than you should choose an open plan kitchen.

We are aware that due to the tariff structure, the premium pricing of these fully imported models means that we can only target a very exclusive segment of the Malaysian market
