This could either be seen as a broken U or an L‐shaped kitchen with an island. Technically I'd say it leans towards the latter but if you imagine that door on the left being cabinetry you can use this layout for inspiration for your own U‐shaped kitchen.
Granite Kitchen Counters. There are plenty of reasons granite counters are so popular – this natural stone has plenty of character with unique grains colors and customizable finishes. When properly sealed it’s one of the most durable options out there. While it can cost as low as $50 per square foot installed prices can go up quickly with more exotic slabs and difficult installations.
Go minimal. Are you in the process of picking new cabinets for your compact kitchen? Consider this look. Ultra‐plain handleless cabinets in a nude hue are soothing to look at and give a sense of visual order. Pick a seamless backsplash such as this slab of marble since tiles with grout can look busy. Get in a tight corner. When space is tight an ingenious trio of pullout corner drawers is a lifesaver helping to solve the problem of lost space in those awkward‐to‐access base cabinets. If you’re remodeling think about how you’d use such drawers – for cutlery towels pans dishes? Here a slimmer top drawer is complemented by the two deeper ones so all the bases are covered.
