A modern kitchen is not defined these days as purely for cooking purposes. It has evolved into a platform where family members, friends and guests can socialise. Therefore, modern-day kitchens have to add comfortable spaces and increase clearances.
That is why careful planning should go into creating a modern layout for your dream kitchen design, and the most important element in planning is the kitchen triangle.

Modern kitchen layouts include L-shape, U-shape, Gallery or Corridor, One-wall, G-shape, and the Island. The infographic below details the advantages and disadvantages of the modern-day kitchen layouts including tips on how to maximise the use of space for an efficient and functional home kitchen.
