Alternative Kitchen Layouts for New Homes

Kitchens come in a variety of layouts; here are a few!

The kitchen is one room of the house that you’ll want to carefully plan when customizing your new home. It is the heart of the home, the place where you and your family will spend much time cooking and possibly dining and gathering. When designing your new home’s kitchen, you will want to give serious consideration to functionality and how it serves your needs. Among Ameri-Star Homes’ inventory of customizable floor plans, you can find or build any one of these alternative kitchen layouts.

The simplest kitchen layout is the one-wall kitchen, a kitchen that extends across one wall only. Your kitchen appliances, cabinetry, and countertops all fit along one wall and typically face a breakfast or dining and living room, great room combination. This layout is more of a minimalist-style house or a house with lesser square footage.

L-Shaped Kitchen

An L-shaped kitchen extends along two adjacent walls in an L-shape. This kitchen layout encourages an open floor plan, giving ample room for cabinetry on the opposite wall and a kitchen island. It is also easier to predict guest traffic patterns within the kitchen itself in this efficient kitchen design.

In some cases, it is a one-wall kitchen with a substantial kitchen island parallel to it. With this kitchen layout, one will maximize every square inch of usable space in this working kitchen layout.

Horseshoe or Peninsula Type Kitchen

This type of a kitchen can easily incorporate a breakfast bar for additional seating.
