Once you’ve chosen the cabinets computer generated drawings will allow you to visualize your completed kitchen. We’ll help you find a contractor and make your dream kitchen a reality.

When designing your new kitchen and choosing the best cabinetry solutions for your home, the first thing to consider is the layout of the kitchen. The kitchen’s layout is the shape that is made by the arrangement of the countertop, major appliances and storage areas. This floor plan creates the kitchen’s work triangle — the path that you make when moving from the refrigerator, to the sink, to the oven to prepare a meal.

There are five different layouts found in today’s kitchens — the Galley, L-Shape, U-Shape, Single Wall and G-Shape. Each layout creates its own unique floor plan. Efficiency can be achieved with each layout by enhancing the space with the right cabinetry.

Review the five kitchen layouts to identify which is most similar to your current kitchen. When looking at each layout, focus on the work triangle created in the room — you may find a kitchen floor plan that your prefer over your own. Keep in mind that even if you’re not making significant structural changes to the kitchen, you can still enhance the layout with the right cabinetry.
