An ideal layout for a single cook, U-shaped kitchens allow easy access to most of kitchen appliances from a single place. A U-shaped modular kitchen is where the functional areas are accommodated along three adjacent walls and the three major elements that complete the work triangle – hob, refrigerator and the sink – are either on parallel walls or incorporated on three sides.

Create the perfect U-shaped kitchen
The U-shaped kitchen is probably the most practical of kitchen layouts and can provide an additional run of potential storage or appliance space compared with a galley kitchen or L-shaped kitchen.
U-shaped kitchens can work in large spaces, but even small kitchens can benefit from a U-shaped design. Just be sure you have at least two metres of moving-around space between the opposite banks of units.
