The L‐shaped kitchen is by far the most popular layout these days. It's most often seen with an island so it's perfect for entertaining multiple‐chef cooking or for making dinner while the kids sit at the island and get help with their homework. The adaptability of this layout is what makes it so desirable. Whereas a galley or U‐shaped kitchen can work in the smallest of spaces you often need a bit more room for an L‐shaped kitchen with an island. This layout has the most amount of variations by far and works with any style whether a kitchen is modern traditional or somewhere in between.
If you're limited on space and storage in your L‐shaped kitchen adding a pot rack frees up space in a base cabinet. In its grandest expression the L‐shaped kitchen has a large island main sink on one wall range on the other and prep sink in the island. This creates at least two overlapping work triangles allowing for multiple cooks to work at the same time. Guest seating at the island creates a "kitchen as theater" feel. Even in some smaller spaces you can fit a L‐shaped kitchen small island and prep sink. No seating at this island but I'm sure having that extra sink more than makes up for it in the cook's eyes!
