National Plan Homes - a U-shaped kitchen

In general there are three types of kitchen plans, the straight-in-line, the L shape and the U shape. Which of the three is best adaptable to any plan depends on the amount of floor space available, and on the location of doors and windows. The U-shaped plan has long been lauded as the homemaker's dream, but highly efficient arrangements also can be achieved with the other two. 

The U shape lends itself well to a small space. Here we have range, oven and sink in a tight triangle, built-in refrigerator-freezer close by at the right, Space-saving breakfast bar extends the range counter.
