Great for small spaces, the galley kitchen has two runs of parallel worktops and units with a walkway in the middle. 


Kitchen Island

Having a kitchen island adds additional worktop surface to a kitchen and can be used to house appliances and extra cupboard storage.

L-Shaped Kitchen

Using an L-Shaped layout for your kitchen helps to make the most of your corner space and provides you with an open plan room for you to combine your kitchen and dining area.

A Peninsula layout can turn an L-shaped kitchen into a U-shaped kitchen and provides a social, informal dining space. peninsula kitchen


U-Shaped Kitchen

The U-shaped kitchen allows you to maximise your storage space by having cupboards and units on three walls of the kitchen.
