Charleston L-Shaped Kitchen Layout Design Ideas and Tips to Consider

The Charleston L-Shaped Kitchen is one of the most popular kitchen layouts because it takes advantage of adjoining walls for the placement of essential elements like cabinets, appliances and countertops.

Ideal for small kitchen spaces, it maximizes the concept of the work triangle, which takes into account efficiency and comfort when it comes to food preparation, cooking and storage.

Here are some design tips and ideas to help you get started with your L-shaped kitchen plans for your Charleston, SC home.

Entertainment Spot - Charleston, SC

Here in Charleston, social interactions are a staple in modern kitchens, and the L-shaped layout helps you make the most of it. In addition to letting multiple cooks work simultaneously, it has enough room to allow guests, family members and friends to have conversations.

To prevent the kitchen from being too crowded and looking busy, consider adding a table and chair set and placing it on one side of the room. For more kitchen ideas, check out our kitchen remodeling gallery here.

Kitchen Island

The island is one particular element to include in your L-shaped kitchen remodeling plan, especially if you have enough space to spare. You can even get rid of the table and chairs since it can be used as a breakfast bar with additional seating.

Cabinets can also be placed back to back doubling the size of the kitchen island to boost storage and utility.

Make Your Kitchen Look Bigger

Have a small kitchen? Well, L-shaped kitchens are the perfect answer to a smaller kitchen. They work in limited spaces because they create an the illusion of more space because this type of kitchen allows everyone to move around easily.

Take your Charleston home to the next level by adding a bit of paint & make it look even larger! To make your kitchen space look even bigger, try coating the walls with a light-colored paint that allows natural light to enter through the kitchen window to bounce around and illuminate the whole space.

Using the right materials for countertops and backsplashes as well as the appropriate paint finish for cabinet and wall surfaces helps you achieve this effect. Perfect for entertaining and social gatherings!
