When selecting the modular home design of your dreams, it is crucial to pick a design that uplifts your lifestyle and suits the needs of you and your family. Not only should you consider the overall design of the house but also individual room designs – particularly the kitchen.
Commonly referred to as the heart of the home, the kitchen is where family and friends come together. Whether that be to eat a meal together, gather around with friends for a glass of wine or three or even help your children complete their homework.
When considering which kitchen design best works for you, our team always emphasise prioritising the practicality and functionality of your kitchen layout, ensuring that you make the most of the space you have.
When mapping out the layout of your kitchen, our sales team and interior design consultants at MyChoice Design Studio will work with you on the functional layout of your kitchen so the location of the fridge, cooktop and oven are all within easy reach of the ‘working triangle’. You’ll also discuss whether there is adequate spacing between joinery so there is ample space to move through workstations, and much more.
So, let’s break down the 3 most popular kitchen design layouts that our clients commonly opt for when choosing their dream modular home floorplan.
The island kitchen layout is the perfect option for those seeking a multi-purpose hub that’s perfect for entertaining, in-kitchen dining, homework, or just general day-to-day conversations.
This layout is generally defined by one back wall and an island bench offering dual access into the kitchen, allowing your family or guests to easily gather and interact whilst cooking, cleaning, or whatever you fancy.
Featured throughout several of our modular home designs, including the Hawkesbury, this efficient layout looks out onto the open plan living dining area with the rear outdoor entertaining space just off the side, creating a relaxed transition between the indoors and outdoors - an ideal layout for the enthusiastic entertainer.
A galley kitchen layout has joinery running parallel along opposite sides creating a long walkway between the workspaces. This layout is ideal for smaller kitchen layouts that may flow into a butler’s pantry or laundry.
This kitchen layout is common in our ranch style home designs including the Coonawarra on display at our Edinburgh display village. The galley style kitchen featured in this modular home design offers an efficient workspace for the avid chef, that flows into the concealed walk-in pantry and provides ample storage and bench space.
This kitchen layout is in the name, the u-shaped kitchen design has three walls of joinery shaped in a U configuration, offering plenty of workspace and storage, best supporting the golden kitchen ‘work triangle’ principle.
After a smarter design solution? We suggest turning one side of the U shape into an island style bench, ideal for family meals, catching up with friends or even a space for the kids to do their homework.
You can find the u-shaped kitchen layout in several of our Evoke Range modular home designs including the Getaway also on display in our Edinburgh display village. This u-shaped kitchen layout allows for one easy access point into the kitchen whilst still maintaining plenty of room for those who enjoy spending time in the kitchen cooking up a storm.
