This layout uses nearly every square foot of available floor space by adding a peninsula or partial fourth wall of base cabinets to a U-shaped layout.
- Adding a short return on the open side of U-shaped layout minimizes traffic flow in and out of the work zone.
- There are plenty of places to set up specialized zones.
- This layout features the most corner base cabinets. Use corner storage solutions in your design plan to maximize utility in these awkward spaces.
- Usually best for larger kitchens. (The narrower entrance into the work zone can make a cook feel claustrophobic.)
