This kitchen layout has been arranged to fit a very generous amount of storage and countertop space into a 10-foot by 12-foot room.

The cabinets take a U-shape with a gap created at the front to be used as an access point or walkway through the kitchen.

Unlike many U-shaped kitchens, this U-shape is not fitted against the wall, and instead, the row of cabinets that form the base of the ‘U’ are free-standing, which creates the feel of a kitchen peninsula. This allows the back end of the ‘U’ shape to double up as a breakfast bar area if you were to add bar stools.

This 10-foot by 12-foot room has been utilized as both a kitchen and dining space. The kitchen units occupy one long wall, while a small dining table with seating has been positioned against the opposite wall.

A round dining table works really well in this type of setup because they typically take up less floor space while still seating multiple people, but from a visual standpoint, they also allow the room to flow better without any harsh angles blocking off parts of the room.
