Rather than miles of counterspace, this kitchen has a freestanding custom‐designed china cabinet at the end of the L. Sometimes a square island is better than a rectangle. If you don't have the room for a main sink in one of the legs of the L, then put it in the island. This makes for a very tight work triangle and still allows for entertaining. This island has seating on two sides which makes for good conversation as well. If storage is what you're looking for, the L‐shaped kitchen can be the best option for the maximum amount of wall cabinets.
Copper Kitchen Counters. It certainly isn't common, but a copper countertop is surprisingly easy to clean and maintain. However, it's not for perfectionists – since it's a "living" surface, it reacts to different substances, creating a blend of matte reds, browns and greens. But for those who love the look, the minimum $100‐per‐square‐foot cost is worth it.
The L‐shaped kitchen is by far the most popular layout these days. It's most often seen with an island, so it's perfect for entertaining, multiple‐chef cooking or for making dinner while the kids sit at the island and get help with their homework. The adaptability of this layout is what makes it so desirable. Whereas a galley or U‐shaped kitchen can work in the smallest of spaces, you often need a bit more room for an L‐shaped kitchen with an island. This layout has the most amount of variations by far and works with any style, whether a kitchen is modern, traditional or somewhere in between.
