The kitchen is the heart of the home, no matter how big or small. So, if you’re planning to renovate or redecorate your kitchen, take the time to assess the space you have, research the various design options and choose appliances that enhance the layout. And if you’ve chosen the straight line kitchen, here’s everything you need to know to perfect it.

Kitchen Design Layout

When it comes to renovating your kitchen, picking a kitchen design layout is half the work. From looking through multiple design options and sifting through renovation jargon, here are some great ideas to get you started.

First, depending on your kitchen space and layout, choose from the many design options. Medium to large kitchens have enough space to showcase U-shaped, L-shaped and Peninsula kitchens while, small to medium spaces are ideal for Galley, Straight Line and Kitchen Islands. But with the right design and appliances, each style can be moulded to suit whatever space you have

Let’s take a closer look into how to design a straight line kitchen. Best suited to smaller spaces, a straight line kitchen is also called a one wall kitchen where all the appliances and cabinetry are fitted along one wall. While this may seem limiting, it actually allows for your individual taste and unique flavour to shine.

Appliances for Straight Line Kitchens

A straight line kitchen layout helps maximise functionality, while creating an open and clear kitchen.

It all comes down to using the right appliances that either blend in to create a uniform look or ones that add character through varied textures, colours and finishes.
