We are very familiar with classic L-shaped kitchen designs. Urban houses, in particular, will have space at a premium and many will be designed with kitchens in an L-shape to make use of all the wall space available. The sink run will often be on one wall with a window while incorporating some preparation space, with the cooking zone set on the perpendicular wall.
However open plan living spaces are more in vogue in recent years and architects are opening up those tighter compact kitchens and bringing cooking, eating and relaxing into the one living space.
A more modern version of the L-shaped kitchen design, pictured, is in a recently developed housing scheme, Hazelbrook, in Dublin. Kube, in conjunction with the developer, designed a white handle-less streamline kitchen in the classic L-shape, with cooking on one wall and the sink on the window wall. However, the room is open planned and flows beautifully into the dining section with a wooden breakfast bar adding that touch of warmth to the crisp white design.
Not every room design, however, can include an available window to suit the placement of the sink. Therefore as shown, the sink can also be placed on any wall or even in the island unit. Cooking zones are more often at eye level, lending themselves to the L-shape perfectly.
To view L-shaped designs plus lots more, visit any Kube showroom in Dublin and Cork or alternatively make an appointment to meet a design consultant to discuss your kitchen plans.
