Design ideas for an L-shaped kitchen
No matter the size of your L-shaped kitchen, your space can be super versatile and offer flexibility without looking too cluttered.
L-shaped kitchens are often generous with square footage and give you lots of options in terms of styling. We’ve put together a few top tips to unleash your inner designer.
Create a ‘work triangle’ with the sink and cooker on different walls – this way you’ll have plenty of prep space, but keep them within an easy distance of each other.
Think about seating
Factor in a dining area by leaving space free at the end of a run of units or on one wall, just enough to squeeze in a small dining table and chairs. Or, you could always overhang your worktop to create a makeshift bar area at the end of your units.
Layer lighting levels throughout the kitchen, from functional under-cupboard lighting and wall lights to illuminate work areas, to more decorative pendants above seating areas.

There will be more floor area on show with this layout, so choose a bold standout design that makes a real statement. You can go as bold as you like with this as no design should look too busy.
Consider a corner unit
Make the most out of your potential cupboard space by opting for a pantry-style corner unit. This is a huge trend in the world of kitchens right now as they appear luxurious and store lots of essentials, too.
