U shaped kitchens: pictures, examples, advantages and disadvantages

The U-kitchen consists of three kitchen units, which adjoin one another in a U-shape (or C-shape). The individual kitchen units can be chosen in different sizes and thus offer a certain flexibility in the planning. Nevertheless, for the three kitchenettes, a relatively large kitchen is needed to have enough space for a U-kitchen. There should be at least 2 meters between the opposing kitchen units so that comfortable working is possible.

Often a kitchen unit of the U-kitchen is also planned as a room divider or as an alternative to a freestanding kitchen island. This kitchen in the room is also very suitable as a bar in the kitchen, as the kitchen pictures in the examples below show.

Advantages and disadvantages of kitchens in U-shape / C-shape
