With single wall kitchen designs, all your main work areas and appliances are along one wall, lined up for efficiency. This includes the refrigerator, cooktop, sink and stove, as well as the main countertop spaces. Most single wall kitchen designs also include counter space for a microwave oven and other minor appliances.
Some single wall designs are short, while others are long. The length of the work space determines how many cooks and helpers can fit.
Unlike the L shaped, U and G plans, a single wall kitchen doesn’t have any clearly-defined “work triangle.” So, cooks have to move in a straight line along the work area. This might seem inefficient at first, but there are several advantages.
The same features that are attractive to some people will be a turn-off to others. The biggest issue with single wall layouts is the cook’s reach.
Easier kitchen design and planning
Long work triangle means more work
Installation is faster and easier
Compact kitchen design for any size room
Single wall kitchen layouts are perfect for mixed-use rooms where you want to keep cooking activities in one compact area of a shared space. Just make sure you don’t store or prepare food items and drinks in the same work space where cleaning chemicals or other hazardous materials are located.
When you’re ready to look at some layouts for your home or office using RTA cabinets, just stop by our Kitchen Design Form and see what you can create. Be sure to include all measurements of your space, and it’s also helpful to attach a handwritten drawing of the space.
