Best suited to: Medium to large family homes.
U-shaped kitchens feature three sides, allowing for lots of benchtop areas to work with, as well as storage. They work well for homes that prefer to have some degree of privacy and separation, rather than being completely open.
Design tip: With three sides of base cabinets, this layout can look a little bulky if not designed expertly. For the upper run of cabinetry, select white or lighter tones, and consider some fluted-glass doors to bounce the light, rather than block it.
