Kitchen Layout Trends for Today


You’re probably familiar with the traditional “triangle” layout. You want the things you use in your kitchen to be an easy reach. The sink, the stove and the refrigerator have long made up this triad of important kitchen locals. But you can pursue other options. Consider some of the following popular layout trends.

Reduce Traffic

Because most people tend to congregate in the kitchen, it’s important to create a space that reduces rather than exacerbates traffic. If the kitchen is the main entry point for the home, ensure that it has a dedicated space, like a mudroom or even a corner, where your family can remove shoes and hang up coats, so things don’t become cluttered.

Kitchen Islands

The kitchen island remains a popular trend for many homes, especially those with an open concept. If you have space for one, an island can increase the efficiency of your kitchen — but only if used correctly. Ample space is needed between the island and the countertops to allow for a person to use both spaces comfortably.

Sink Placement

Where you place your sink is a huge consideration for your kitchen design. Whether it’s on the island or the center of your counter, you will spend a lot of time at the sink. Ensure that it is easy to access from your cooking triangle. If it's not on an island, the most common location for a sink is in front of a window.

Keep Storage in Mind

Your kitchen, more than anything, needs to be functional. This can’t be done without ample storage. When designing your kitchen for the perfect layout, consider small appliance storage, a pantry and access to dishes, cutlery and pots and pans. How you organize storage space is as important as how much of it you have.
