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.

Position appliances

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.

Illuminate areas

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.

Floor filler

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.
