U-Shaped Kitchen Design Layout
A U-shaped kitchen has cabinets along three walls with open access on the remaining side.
- Continuous countertops and ample storage surround the cook.
- A U-shaped kitchen has potential for more upper cabinets than other layouts.
- If your room is large enough, set up multiple work zones on different sides of the “U” so two people can use the kitchen without getting in each other’s way.
- When three perimeter walls aren’t available, add a peninsula to an L-shaped kitchen to form the third side of the “U.”
