This one-wall kitchen layout is a simple, yet functional design. It is ideal for smaller spaces such as a studio apartment, where everything is within easy reach, including your appliances, cabinets, cooking tools, and ingredients. This compact layout is ideal for the single user so they access all components of their kitchen easily. It also adds to an open floor plan, where any user is able to interact with others while using the kitchen. To maximize the space and minimize the visual clutter in this layout, everything can easily be hidden behind sliding or pocket doors. In a straight kitchen your working triangle is placed in a linear design. Ideally your sink is between the cooking range and the refrigerator with plenty of counter space in between. With this layout, you can easily add a dining table to create a more social and interactive atmosphere.
