So you’ve finally decided to decorate your new kitchen with a wall kit. You’ve spent hours looking around online for ideas and reading through magazines to prepare your decorating plans. Finally, you walk into your local home improvement store and pick up a couple of wall units. What do you do next? Not sure what to do?
Wall Kitchens has some great design elements that can add charm and character to any new kitchen. What exactly is a one-wall kitchen? Also called a ‘drawer kitchen’, ‘double walled kitchen’ or ‘trailer kitchen’, a one-wall kitchen layout is designed completely on a single wall – like the galley kitchen. Galley kitchen layouts are the most common of all single wall kitchens. They work perfectly in small and compact spaces but can also be large enough to accommodate full-sized appliances.
The benefits of a one single line kitchen are endless. The most obvious is the ability to organize your storage properly. Because the cabinets are all located on one wall, the need for additional floor space to place larger appliances, refrigerators, dishwashers and other kitchen work triangle pieces is eliminated. You are able to save a lot of floor space by utilizing the vertical space underneath your counter tops to store items such as your pots and pans.
Another great benefit of a one-wall kitchen design is that it creates a beautiful illusion of space. When you look at kitchens with overhead cabinets instead of one single line of cabinets, you are also going to notice that the design creates a more streamlined look. This is especially true in kitchens that have a lot of appliances and cookware. A more streamlined kitchen design will make your home appear much more spacious.
Although there are many benefits to a one-wall kitchen layout, there are some disadvantages as well. One of the main disadvantages of this type of kitchen layout is that it is typically smaller than other designs. You can use a smaller amount of space overall because you are using two walls for the countertop and the storage space.
You may feel that you don’t have enough space to accommodate all of the items that you need to store without using up the entire available area in your kitchen. This can result in the inability to prepare food on a daily basis. When you use one-wall kitchens, the prep area may not be as large as you would like, and there may not be enough room for all of the appliances that you need to prepare food. These types of kitchens also take up more floor space than two-wall designs.
You can use either one or two-wall kitchen designs in your home. Just remember that they do come with their own set of disadvantages. One of these disadvantages is that they take up more floor space than two-wall kitchens. If you have very small kitchen areas, one-wall kitchens can actually be used. If you have a larger kitchen area, you may want to use two-wall kitchens.
