From the wall paint to the cabinetry wood, your kitchen style informs most of the choices that you make when it comes to your materials. The style you choose can even help you decide which door handles to attach and the tiles that you use as a backsplash above your counters and behind the sink. A variety of kitchen style exist, so there is something for every preference and budget.

 

5 Standard Kitchen Layouts

The very first step of the planning process is to determine the possible layout of your kitchen. There are five basic kitchen shapes: Straight, Galley, L-shape, U-shape, and G-shape.
