L Shape Kitchen

L-shaped kitchens often feature one portion of the "L" as open counter space with a pass-through to a dining or living room to open up the entire kitchen space and create the impression of a larger area. For good reason, the L-shaped kitchen is one of the most popular layouts. It introduces a highly flexible design that can be adapted to many sizes and styles of kitchens.

What to Prepare

 

  1. If you selected the L-shape kitchen layout, you need to measure the width from wall to wall (edge).​

  2. Mark the position of your kitchen window/door relative to the wall. Measure the window size with trim included and the width from the wall to the window trim.

  3. Measure your house ceiling height.

  4. According to the plumbing position, get to know your kitchen sink position.

  5. Select your kitchen sink type (single/double basins, round/square, etc.)

  6. Decide on the kitchen appliances you are most likely use in your daily life: cook-top, hood, refrigerator, dishwasher, etc.)​.

U Shape Kitchen

U-shaped kitchens are often surrounded by walls/window, with the sink often placed beneath the window. This layout has an open side that usually leads to the adjacent family room, breakfast area, or a combination of the two.

What to Prepare

 

  1. If you selected the U-shape kitchen layout, you need to measure the width from wall to wall (edge).

  2. Mark the position of your kitchen window/door relative to the wall. Measure the window size with trim included and the width from the wall to window trim.

  3. Measure your house ceiling height.

  4. According to the plumbing position, get to know your kitchen sink position.

  5. Select your kitchen sink type (single/double basins, round/square, etc.).

  6. Decide on the kitchen appliances you are most likely use in your daily life: cook-top, hood, refrigerator, dishwasher, etc.).

Galley kitchens provide maximum efficiency for smaller spaces. We recommend light-colored cabinets and countertops to make the galley kitchen open and airy.

What to Prepare

  1. If you selected the galley kitchen layout, you need to measure the width from wall to wall (edge).

  2. Mark the position of your kitchen window/door relative to the wall. Measure the window size with trim included and the width from the wall to window trim.

  3. Measure your house ceiling height.

  4. According to the plumbing position,  get to know your kitchen sink position.

  5. Select your kitchen sink type (single/double basins, round/square, etc.).

  6. Decide the kitchen appliances you will most likely use in your daily life: cook-top, hood, refrigerator, dishwasher, etc.).
