Taking on a kitchen remodeling project can be a bit daunting on your own. You might have some anxiety about your project looking like an amateur attempt. However, today’s blog post is here to tell you to put those fears away!

They usually come with three walls of cabinets and appliances. The L-shaped kitchen is actually just a horseshoe kitchen with an island forming the third “wall” of the room.
The size of the space allows for almost infinite variation, however. Large kitchens may incorporate an island and a peninsula, two separate islands, or an eating area in addition to a standard work triangle or specialized work centers.

In the past, there was a fairly strict “formula” for the best distance between each element. The standard kitchen triangle of the past consisted of the fewest number of steps and the most logical arrangement for food preparation and cleanup duties.
