A U-shaped kitchen is a kitchen design that features three walls that are lined with cabinets and appliances. It is an efficient design that frees up floor space. This three-wall kitchen layout is generally larger and more space is provided for cooking, cleaning, food preparation, and storage. The U-shaped kitchen is an enclosed design that is very private. It takes over three adjoining walls, giving continuous counter space and plenty of storage in both floor and wall cabinets. Larger U-shaped kitchen layouts allow for multiple people to work at different counters at the same time. Smaller U-shaped kitchens are ideal for the single user. Due to its closed design, the U-shaped keeps onlookers out of the main working area, and it maintains the privacy of the kitchen activities. In this layout, your working triangle can be spread across three walls, with your sink on one wall, your refrigerator on another wall, and your cooking range on the third wall. Ideally, the U-shaped kitchen is better in a larger space, where users can have enough room to move around without bumping into one another.
