The L-kitchen is the classic among the modern kitchen forms – and with good reason. A kitchen in L-shape is very flexible planable and fits in almost every room. An L-shaped kitchen is the name of the game when two kitchen units are placed directly next to each other.
Depending on the size of the room and the desired equipment, it can be planned as a corner kitchen, for example. An alternative is to let one of the two kitchenettes into the room. It serves as a room divider or as a freestanding, communicative work surface (and is a practical alternative to a kitchen island).
Pros and cons of an L-shape kitchen
Advantages of a kitchen in L-shape (also: corner kitchen)
- Ergonomic by shorter working distances (as for example a single, very long kitchenette).
- Also good for kitchens with multiple windows or doors.
- Fits in almost every room, even for small kitchens.
- Existing electrical and water installations are often geared to L-shaped kitchens.
- Can easily be extended to a kitchen island.
- A corner kitchen (angle kitchen) is particularly space-saving.
Disadvantages of a kitchen in L-shape (also: corner kitchen)
- Very long rooms look even longer if no counterweight is set.
