Evaluate Your Current Kitchen

If you're like most people, your home is the most important place in the world to you. It's where you raise your family, create lifelong memories, and relax after a long day. Determining your family's needs and how you currently use your kitchen are two important factors to consider when planning your kitchen’s design. Have you ever stared at your kitchen and wished for a different layout? Or perhaps your kitchen simply can’t accommodate the needs of your family. With a little bit of thought and consideration, you can help Micasa Kitchens design your kitchen in a way that suits your family perfectly.

Consider your family’s activities, priorities, and fundamental necessities, and determine the things that you value in a quality kitchen. Begin to take note of features and elements that catch your eye. Inspiration is elemental to creating a kitchen design that is tailored to your vision. Presenting all of your ideas will create a representative concept of your overall goals and allow us to do what we do best.

Design and Layout

Kitchen layouts have been and continue to be a matter of great debate. Some people prefer their kitchens staying true to the original design, while others want major changes for it to feel like home again! There is no wrong answer when deciding what kitchen layout will best cater to your family. Your kitchen is a reflection of you, so it should feel like home. These are the six most popular layout templates, and how they might function with your home:

U-Shaped Kitchen Layout

With a U-shaped kitchen, you have the option to create an efficient and functional space. The three distinct walls in this design provide plenty of room for cabinets that are perfect not only as storage but also when entertaining guests or cooking dinner.

G-Shaped Kitchen Layout

With a G-shaped kitchen, you have the option of maximizing your countertop space and adding more storage. A partial fourth wall or peninsula can be great for creating a larger cooking area and maximizing real estate.

L-Shaped Kitchen Layout

With the L-shaped kitchen layout, you can have a practical and efficient space that is flexible to fit your needs. This style of design creates an ergonomic work triangle in which all three sides are lined up perfectly with one another for maximum efficiency!

Galley Kitchen Layout

The galley kitchen layout is a common choice for traditional designs and it's ideal in small spaces. This style offers less fluidity than other types, but allows easy movement from stovetop to fridge or oven without having too much distance between them when you're cooking!

Island Kitchen Layout

The island kitchen layout is perfect for those with larger spaces. Providing at least 36” of space on all four sides of a central island, homeowners and families experience maximum counter space and entertaining quality, along with superior functionality.

Peninsula Kitchen Layout

A peninsula kitchen layout is a great option for those who want to have an island, but don't have the space. It offers a similar function as an island and allows you plenty of additional seating, storage area, or countertop surface area!

Creating a custom kitchen with Micasa Kitchens allows you to combine different elements of these styles, or design a kitchen that is completely unique to you!
