Today’s L-shaped kitchen is sure to appeal to most people with its classic design and timeless appeal. This historic renovation by Bria Hammel Interiors stays true to the home’s original bones.
An L-Shaped kitchen layout typically has two adjacent walls with cabinetry that form the letter L. Within the L is a work triangle composing of the refrigerator, sink, and stove as anchor points. It creates a highly efficient work space.
You can see the kitchen work triangle in the photo below, with the refrigerator to the right, the stove to the left, and the sink in between the two.
The kitchen includes pantry space with plenty of white cabinets and beautiful wood trim for the door and window.
The kitchen opens up to more living space, which is often the case in L-shaped kitchen designs. A convenient bar has its own sink and a cozy dining nook is off in the background.
Gold accents lend a bit of elegance to the built-in dining nook with its cozy banquette and what I call ice cream parlor chairs. I love the color of dark, warm paint used here and on the kitchen cabinets. I don’t know the name of it but it has a creamy richness that I find comforting.
Have you noticed a rise in popularity for landscape paintings? You can spend a fortune on one, or find a reproduction for a much lower price. Or you can do what I sometimes do, which is to frame country landscape printables.
From this view of the kitchen you can see into the pantry at left. You’ll often find an island in larger L-shaped kitchens when space allows. It creates more workspace for ease in cooking.
