A great kitchen should not only look good but should also function well. If you are already thinking about building a kitchen for your new home or perhaps remodeling your current one, you always have the choice to look over open kitchen floor plans to help you decide on how your new kitchen should look. Open kitchen floor plans come in different designs. However, the most common kitchen design layout plans can be classified into three: the L-shaped, U-shaped and G-shaped. L-shaped kitchens are perhaps the most preferred of all because it can take up a very small space. Aside from that, these types of layouts are very flexible and are convenient especially if there are adjoining spaces next to the kitchen, too. G-shaped kitchens are the same as the L-shaped ones only that there is an added quarter of a wall. This is especially useful in adding more storage space into the kitchen.
For an even bigger storage space, you can also opt for the U-shaped kitchens. For those with tighter spaces, an option to have single wall kitchens may be chosen. In this type of kitchen design layout, all features are placed in a single line. However, it pays to consider both the pros and cons of an open kitchen floor plan, before you break through that kitchen wall. And remember, a compromise design is a possibility.
