One of the most important things to consider when designing a kitchen is its style. Not only will it need enough space, but also what kind of room layout do you want? Whether in found-footage or high design mode – there are many different styles out on today’s market. Here are some options to consider for your Ottawa kitchen renovation.
One Wall Kitchens
One wall or single-line kitchen is a popular and efficient design for new construction homes. This style saves space by keeping all cabinetry and appliances against a single wall instead of spreading them across multiple walls like an open floor plan home.
A galley kitchen is a long, narrow space with base cabinets, wall cupboards, counters, or other services located on one side of the central walkway.
Kitchens With Islands
Islands are the new norm in kitchen design and come in all shapes, sizes and designs. They offer an essential bit of extra prep space for busy cooks who want to save valuable countertop real estate without sacrificing anything else about their cooking experience.
L-shaped kitchens are great for small to medium-sized spaces, as they require one whole wall, which usually has cabinets and other permanent fixtures. They may also incorporate an island that can be used for food preparation or extra storage space.
A U-shaped kitchen is perfect for small spaces, such as those with limited room in the rear. This design has a horseshoe-shaped work area and cabinets or counters running around three sides with an open end opposite of where food preparation takes place; it can accommodate one or two cooks depending on its width.
The G-Shaped Kitchen is a much more expandable version of the popular U shaped kitchen. In this layout, three walls act as storage with an additional peninsula wall between them to create four areas for storing your belongings.
A condo kitchen is a space meant for cooking and dining. It doesn’t have enough countertop or cabinet room to store food, so homeowners use them only when they cook dinner with friends and family.
