Kitchens are said to be the most important room in the house; the heart of the home. This area isn’t just the place where food is prepared, but people spend a good amount of time in this room.


The kitchen influences lifestyle, it’s a family gathering area, a place for entertaining. With that being said, in this article we will be exploring the different types of kitchens styles.

1. The L-Shape Kitchen

The L-shaped kitchen has been popularized due to many people opting for studio-style living with an open floor plan. This kitchen shape provides a continuous working platform making it incredibly convenient.

2. The Island Kitchen

3. The Parallel Kitchen

This is said to be the most efficient of all the kitchens when it comes to the primary function of the kitchen: cooking. This layout has parallel working areas that could be divided into areas, being wet and dry. The dry area could be used for working with appliances or could be substituted as an additional workspace, while the wet area could be used for cooking and washing. Alternatively, one could turn the parallel area into an island to serve entertaining purposes.

4. The L-Shape with an Island

The L-shape with the addition of the island provides maximum flexibility for cooking and entertaining. The island still maintains the free flow of movement around the kitchen all while providing the zones in the L-shape enough space for free movement. The island serves the dual purpose of being an extra working area and being a dinner table/space for entertainment.

5. The Straight Kitchen

This kitchen type is a one-wall layout that is designed in way which places the counter space on both sides of the cooking range. This design is places with minimal space and this kitchen can even be hidden behind sliding doors or rolling doors to minimise visual clutter in a space that typically doesn’t have that much area.

6. The Peninsula Kitchen

This kitchen style shares similarities with the parallel kitchen. It lacks the one wall, but rather compensates with a free-standing workspace/peninsula extends from a side wall or cabinet that has access from three sides. This peninsula can serve as additional workspace, extra wash area or a table top for quick meals. The style is ideal homes with small kitchen space as the peninsula can serve as an island top minus the floor space.
