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.
Older homes with smaller kitchens sometimes have the refrigerator inside the "U" but that really eats into the counter space. Most often you’ll see a U‐shaped kitchen with the refrigerator on the adjacent wall right outside the "U" which is fine. It’s still within the work triangle. One signature of the U‐shaped kitchen is the peninsula. In this case it doesn’t have seating due to the passageway between rooms. The lack of kitchen seating is often the reason people prefer the L‐shaped kitchen with an island to the U‐shaped kitchen.
A wall‐mounted rack like this one keeps things orderly without swallowing too much space. Buy decent knives if you can afford it as they should last a lifetime. One advantage of a magnetic rack is that you can slowly build up your collection of knives buying one at a time rather than having to invest in one large block complete with knives which can be pricey. If you’re starting from scratch a bread knife paring knife and chef’s knife are essential.
