While your existing room layout might determine the layout or shape of your kitchen, you may find that you are able to play around with the layout at the design stage. A good kitchen designer will be able to advise you on this and will be able to explain the pros and cons of various layouts for your kitchen. Of course if you are building a new home or adding a kitchen extension, you will have more flexibility at the kitchen design stage and the larger the space to work with the more options you will have. The most common kitchen design layouts are One Wall Kitchens, Galley Kitchens, L-Shaped Kitchens, U-Shaped Kitchens, G-Shaped Kitchens, Kitchen With Island Unit and Kitchen With Peninsula.
Below is an illustration and description on all.
