The charm of L-shaped kitchens
Houzz España recently published a study that claimed that 34% of people who renovate the kitchen save more space by choosing an L-shaped distribution. According to the study, this is due to the fact that this distribution provides plenty of air and allows the easy integration of the areas of cooking, preparation, and washing.
As if that wasn’t enough, the distribution of the L-shaped kitchen provides enough room for a table, which is ideal in the modern kitchen. But aside from the obvious, what other things should you know about this magical distribution? Here are some tips.
Perfect for small and/or elongated spaces
An L-shaped kitchen is perfect when you don’t have a lot of space or the space you have is elongated. Why? Well, because the diverse advantages of this distribution include the use of every centimeter the space has to offer.
For example, the longest wall is usually used to place a quality countertop that allows you to prepare food, while the cooktop can be on the shortest wall.
Offers great space for cooking
The supporters of this type of kitchen distribution say that the space for cooking is sacred in it, especially when its design includes an island where the cooktop is installed.
However, a broad space is needed for this to be possible, which means that even though the L composition is very useful in small spaces, it’s ideal for large ones.
With the walls on your side
Unlike open kitchens, the L composition leaves a lot of space of the wall space on display. That is why it’s so important to choose tasteful coatings, paints, or back splashes that become
the focal point of the decoration.
In that sense, another option is to take advantage of large windows. What better decoration for your kitchen than a wonderful view?
The best option for open kitchens
The L-shaped composition is certainly one of the best options for kitchens with an open concept into the dining room or living room. This type of distribution can integrate perfectly without taking away the importance of the space located next to it.
In fact, in many cases, the designer or architect combines the decoration so that the kitchen harmonizes perfectly. Everything is a matter of creativity and, above all, taste.
What do you think? Are you one of those people that gives in to the charm of the L-shaped kitchen?
