How to plan your L-shaped open kitchen?
The L-shaped open kitchen offers you plenty of freedom of movement. Two small adjacent kitchens combine order and function.
In a corner kitchen, frequently used kitchen appliances are usually arranged in a triangle, which reduces unnecessary walking and makes work easier.
L-shaped kitchens offer more storage space and cooking surfaces than simple kitchenettes. Long kitchenettes and short kitchenettes are often combined together. The long kitchen area provides space for stoves, refrigerators and spacious worktops to be placed, while in the shorter area, sinks, cabinets, and dishwashers can be placed.
The experts from Parlun will be happy to help you with your kitchen planning so that your new kitchen is exactly what you want it to be. If you wish, our experts can even plan and tailor the kitchen precisely to the dimensions of your home.
How big a room is an L-shaped open kitchen suitable for?
The corner open kitchen fits any room size, whether it is a small room or a wide cooking area. This kitchen shape is particularly suitable in wide, square spaces or open spaces.
In small rooms, a light-colored open kitchen is ideal, which visually expands the room. Relying on warm colors, natural tones, or wooden elements, it looks very warm.
How to reasonably extend the L-shaped open kitchen?
L-shaped kitchens can have a particularly flexible kitchen design. If you cook a lot and want more space? Then a wide kitchen island in the middle of the room is ideal. If you need more storage space, you can extend your corner kitchen on both sides, and add more cabinets and kitchen appliances. This way, your L-shaped open kitchen becomes the popular U-shaped open kitchen.
