Ultimately, your layout needn’t affect what unit style you choose. However, it can have an influence. Large family kitchens work well with a large island or farmhouse-style table at their heart, so perhaps a traditional or country look will suit your needs. Alternatively, galley layouts can benefit from modern streamlined designs that will maximise light and space.
You can use online tools or a kitchen company representative to work out the best design to fit your room measurements and accept what they have as the definitive choice.
By custom, the sink is placed beneath a window, both to provide daylight for chores done there and to give one a view outdoors. I suppose the custom derives from the days before dishwashers, when the task of washing up was a tedious affair done by hand. Yet working at a sink with a window is still much more pleasant than working at a sink without one. Designers often place the sink first and lay out the rest of the work triangle from there.
Local building codes often state that there must be an electrical outlet every 4 feet in the kitchen. White outlets are seemingly the color of choice for electricians — and therein lies the bane of my design existence. With their glaring contrast, white outlets in a nonwhite backsplash detract from the beauty of the tile. Fortunately, you can avoid this dilemma by coordinating your outlets and wall plates with the color of your backsplash tile, as shown in this photo.
