Planning to give your kitchens a makeover and contemplating on ways to turn your kitchen into an amazing space? Well, then it is the right time to focus more on the ergonomics of the kitchen layout, where ergonomic is basically the design that suits the human body which is inclusive of various factors such as the height of the upper cabinet from the floor level, the width of the passage and so on. And this is what helps in sketching out the kitchen in various shapes and styles that are practically approachable as well as comfortable for the users.

Among the various kitchen layouts, the L shaped kitchen floor plan is one of the most popular one, that basically runs along two walls of the kitchen giving an ‘’L’’ shaped look. And suits both the contemporary and traditional interior design styles!

Since it is one of the common shapes found in the kitchens,  I am listing out a few pros and cons of the L shaped kitchen for the homeowners to know and get inspired from.

L - Shaped Kitchen Design

The Pros Of  L - Shaped Kitchen  Design

  • The L-shaped kitchen ideas suit both medium to small kitchen spaces and even the open kitchen plan designs.

  • In the L shaped kitchens, the movement or the traffic flow between the work triangle gets easier, as the L shaped kitchen layout eliminates traffic completely,  and in case of slightly bigger space, even islands or dining space can be accommodated which makes it easier for the cook to interact with the guests. Moreover, it creates an illusion of more space than the kitchen space really has! Even the workstation can be easily divided in close proximity to each other,  which would turn the work area into an efficient one.

  • The clean and crisp lines of the L shaped kitchen layout allows one to see the overall kitchen at a glance, as there are virtually no obstacles. Therefore, the L shaped layout allows using the overall kitchen in an excellent manner.

The Cons Of L - Shaped Kitchen Design

  • Not efficient for larger kitchens as the appliances get too spread out which makes the cooking process a bit of a hassle and to reduce the size of the work triangle an island has to be included in the design.

  • The bottom corner kitchen cabinets with pots and pan could be difficult to access if the corner trolley unit is not being installed.

  • If the kitchen is way too small, then too it might be tough to have multiple cooks as the design would obstruct workspaces.

L - Shaped Kitchen Design

Basically, an L-shaped kitchen design can be designed in excellent ways to make use of each and every corner. Even one can try to enhance the small kitchens with light colors and install open L shaped kitchen cabinets to prevent the kitchen from looking cramped. Just make sure to concentrate on both the pros and cons and team it along with the apt decorative accents to give the kitchen a feeling of vibrancy and illusion of uncluttered-ness.
