50 Unique U-Shaped Kitchens And Tips You Can Use From Them

50 Unique U-Shaped Kitchens And Tips You Can Use From Them

A u-shaped kitchen is a highly coveted layout for a househunter since they offer so much space for cabinetry. The u-shaped layout places units around the cook on three sides with the top of the ‘u’ left open for a doorway or an open plan living room. U-shaped kitchens can be combined with dining areas or even a kitchen island if the width of the room allows. An open plan room often presents the opportunity to make one arm of the ‘u’ into a peninsula that can be accessed from both sides, such as for use as a breakfast bar or as a dual sided storage volume. Find all this and more in this inspirational gallery.

Generally speaking, there are six types of kitchen layouts: The One Wall, Galley, L-shaped, U-shaped, Island and Peninsula. There are no strict positions in which to order the stove, fridge or sink, and a kitchen can be combinations of one or more of the typical layouts. For example, you could have an L-shaped kitchen with an island or a peninsula, or a galley kitchen that is linked at one end. In designing a functional kitchen, the kitchen work triangle should be considered, which means that the distance between the sink, stove and fridge should be no more than 1200mm apart. Though, the concept of the kitchen working triangle is now evolving further to take into account multiple cooks, as well as new gadgets and appliances. In comparison to when the concept originated in the 1940s, where kitchens were a utilitarian place typically home to the housewife, our kitchens and equality have come a long way. Microwaves, separate cook tops to ovens, prep stations with an additional mini sink and teamwork all interrupt the traditional triangle. As modern kitchens present an increase in dedicated task zones, secondary triangles become commonplace.

A different tack has been taken in this blue kitchen, with wall cabinets placed around the full u-shape. However, one side of the arrangement is open to the dining room, and windows run around the rest of the countertop level bringing plenty of airiness to the scheme. Cleaning the backsplash after cooking dinner in this kitchen becomes an exercise in window washing!

Forget the plinths. With the abundance of cabinets typical to a u-shaped kitchen you may be looking for new ways to help your design look more open and spacious. Leaving off the base plinths can help expand the look of your floor space – though do be prepared to get down low to clean out the recess regularly if you’re dropsy with your vegetable choppings.

Visualizer: Stanislav Kaminskyi

Forget making do with a tiny kitchen tv – go big using a projector.

Break with stereotypes. The positioning of the fridge with an adjacent oven at the neck of the ‘u’ in this layout is quite unconventional. The tall units at the back make the plan feel almost like a galley kitchen. The fridge and oven are often situated in tandem in modern kitchens, though some manufacturers warn that the proximity is detrimental to your fridge by making it work harder to achieve the desired internal temperature.

Visualizer: Alexander Shabalin

Select an extractor unit to be the main feature.

If you tire of colour schemes quickly, use easily replaceable items to colour the room. Keep bold colours confined to mugs, trays and tea towels to make a decor change gentle in effort and low on price.

2 Cool Home Interiors With Art That Pops On Concrete

2 Cool Home Interiors With Art That Pops On Concrete

If you’d like to showcase some art around your home but are not quite sure what pieces will work, or how best to display them, then you’ve come to the right place. These two modern home interiors use cool concrete decor as a backdrop for vibrant wall art. We’re not sure whether the art has inspired the colour palette for the rooms, or if decor influenced art choice, but either way works. Colours in the art and the room work hand in hand to create rich and vibrant spaces that are a joy to be in. The art is eye-catching, but so is the contemporary furniture, unique lighting and modern feature walls.

Visualizer: Daria Alieva

Green and red are the key colours in this living room’s soft furnishings, and in the striking contemporary wall art hung on columns of concrete.

A contrasting purple wall opposite the sofa makes the room look young and fresh. A couple of black ornaments and accessories around the room tie in with dark notes in the art pieces. A black Atollo lamp stands out on a white side table by the sofa. Cheaper replicas are available on Ebay.

Copper dining room pendant lights are suspended in a line of three along the dining table behind the sofa. The copper tones complement the red accents in the art. Two red dining chairs bring the hue to the head and foot of the table. A plant stand grows some greenery in the corner by the window.

A trio of bright red kitchen bar stools line up along a blue island in the open plan. They are the Hay Hee bar chair.

Heavy grey window drapes tone with the raw concrete walls.

The clear perspex dining table allows natural light from the dual aspect windows to pass straight through it.

We find more colourful modern art inside the master bedroom, positioned in pride of place over the headboard. A red stemmed bedside table lamp illuminates one side of the bed, whilst a matching bedroom hanging light serves the other.

There is also a matching floor lamp in the set, which has been teamed with a blue accent chair here.

The bed throw is a tan shade to match the coloured concrete feature wall. The warm neutral hue works to calm the clash of red and blue accent pieces.

A red side table joins the blue bedroom chair and modern floor lamp to fashion a chic little resting spot.

The bed is upholstered in a youthful monochrome fabric, which whilst bold does not fight for attention with the colourful wall art.

Designer: Studio e
Visualizer: Peter Janov

Our other living room showcases art with a retro look, though the furniture choices are very much up to date. A swing arm wall lamp is poised to illuminate the art on the concrete wall at nightfall, and to shed light over a modern sofa. Panoramic windows bathe the entire open plan lounge/kitchen/diner in natural light during daytime hours. A large grey rug softly defines the lounge area from the rest of the multi-use layout.

An Oda style lamp stands at a black slatted feature wall. Originals are available here. A two tone media unit matches with the grey concrete wall, and with a white marble hearth that runs beneath it.

The heavy black walls and block style coffee table are balanced out with a sweet light pink accent colour, which appears in a section of the sofa and on some of the dining chairs.

A small black side table serves the sofa.

Above the dining table hangs a sprawling black modern chandelier, which is the Ingo spider chandelier. A wood dining table is surrounded by beige and pink examples of the Kartell Masters chair.

The open plan room is completed by a black one wall kitchen with a metallic island. The black kitchen walls can be used as a chalkboard for notes or personal art. A mirror finish integrated appliance shines at the centre of the matt black kitchen larder units.

In the master bedroom, a black slatted door is installed at either side of a soft grey modern bed. The pocket doors slide away inside the headboard wall to reveal a closet to the right and an ensuite bathroom on the left. Multicoloured wall art injects brave personality into the monochrome scheme.

Pink bedside units with black tray tops peep out from either side of the bed; unusual bedroom pendant lights shed light over each one. The walk-in closet behind the bed is decked out with a number of wooden shelving cubbies, on the wall for lesser used garments, and on the floor for a collection of shoes. Black chests of drawers line up beneath a generous run of garment rails.

The ensuite bathroom on the other side has concrete wall decor behind a wooden vanity with a concrete basin. The toilet is wall hung and accompanied by a wall mounted toilet brush, which keep the small room feeling open and spacious. Light marble tiles clad a shower enclosure with a clerestory window.

Pink accents make a comeback in the kid’s room, on bedcovers and a cute kid’s chair. The wall mounted tv and a house shaped chalkboard brings the black base notes into the kids decor. A small grey stool stands by the kid’s novelty chalkboard to provide a comfy place to sit whilst doodling away.

Bright art sings solo in a concrete hallway..

Using the 5 senses in decoration

Using the 5 senses in decoration

When we think of decoration at the same time comes to mind beautiful environments of see yourself. But if you use your imagination a little more and put in this beautiful environment a unpleasant smell or one noise deafening traffic or a floor too cold, hot or rough when stepping on or something in it reminds you of a food with a taste you hate? Yeah! The beauty eyesight only works nicely if the smell, a hearing, The tact it’s the taste are not bothered!

(photo: decordemon lauren nelson design)

So let’s talk here about how can we take care and positively explore the 5 senses in the best way in decorating from our house.


The most obvious sense, which is used in decoration in various ways: color combinations furniture, coverings and objects lighting efficient and beautiful, ensuring perfect light for the various functions required and Desired climates, in choosing frames, photos and decoration objects that bring the personality of the homeowner and complete the harmony of the decor…

(Photo: ArchitecturalImovel)

… at color and light combination to highlight a strong point, “hide” a weak, “Increase”, “decrease”, “narrow or” widen “visual perception of the environment, etc. And we must not forget the power of rejoicing that has the vision of things that bring us happy memories or feelings (photos of pleasant moments or places we travel to, objects, colors, prints and images with sentimental value or that remind us of positive things, phrases that stimulate us, etc.).

The smell

Smells bring us sensationsas the “cleaning smell”A home should always have. But also bring us memories – the cbasil heiroFor example, it reminds me of a house where I lived for a while and where I was very happy. It’s natural for an environment to become more pleasant to me if the smell of basil is in the air – or even if I see a picture of him it works!

(photo: casa claudia magazine)

So it has great effect research smells that bring you good sensations and somehow include them in the decoration (whether through plants, flowers, flavorings, perfumes and even images, objects and colors that have a connection with these smells).


In addition to worrying about annoying noises that can “wipe out” our decor, research sounds that are pleasing to us – like the subtle noise of a water fountain (which I love!), The crackling of the photo in the fireplace, a wind bell on the porch or even the installation of a sound system – and inserting them into the decor – carefully and always with the possibility to silence them when necessary – it works! And again, as vision is a very strong sense and imagination has no limits, you can have images or objects that stimulate memory recall – For example, for me, the image of the sea waves makes me think of their sound and soothe me.

(photo: Casatreschic)

The Tato

This is the second most commonly perceived meaning in decoration: textures of fabrics and coverings Think of velvet, leather, wool, cotton, silk, synthetic fabrics, each with its own unique feel. from rough rugs to downy rugs, glass, steel, wood, etc. and the material temperatures in touch with our body (ceramics, stones, wooden floors, heated floors, cold fabrics, etc.), as well as the warm water of the fountain, the warmth of the fireplace, the roughness of the cacti, the velvety delicacy of the leaves of the plants and flowers. People feel the richness of decorating work in the diversity of sensations that groping in the environment can give (but exaggerations can be unpleasant, ok?).

(Photo: ArchitecturalImovel)

The Palate

Most people, if they think of taste in a decoration, think of the kitchen, the dining area, or the commercial environment that sells food. And it is easier and more logical to explore this sense in these environments.

Chocolatras salivate – even without tasting or smelling chocolate from this Godiva store. It is important to note 2 things: a) You can stimulate one sense through another (s) and the stronger the different stimuli, the more they work. But: 2) Excessive stimuli may cause nausea or irritation. I, for example, who don’t like chocolate that much, feel a little uncomfortable with this picture. Imagine if you could smell it! (photo: yatzer – Wonderwall by Kozo Takayam)

But before using elements that might, someway more permanent, encourage or discourage the appetite in the decoration of our home is I need to think about whether we want or need this incentive permanently at home.

So I believe the best is have or do at home elements that can be used when needed: A dinner, a party, to help a person who needs some control or encouragement in the area of ​​food (objects, cutlery, tablecloths and colorful dishes in interesting shapes for children at the time of food are used a lot, right?)

(image: schoolchildren)

Another issue that influences taste is that the environment where meals are should be thought of as being conducive to attention to food and family life. Especially healthy eating, on those days of lack of time and fast foods… Pleasant sounds, quiet colors, comfortable seating for everyone, muted cell phones – to encourage conversation and approach, control of annoying noises, efficient yet cozy lighting, seasonal fruits available and visible in beautiful fruit, etc… All of this can help a lot, not only to eat better but also to a harmonious family life.

(photo: Mildicasdemae 123RF)

Another story is when we want, not to encourage people to eat or stop eating, but provoke good sensations or taste-related memoriesthrough the insertion of elements that refer to this memory. For example: The “mood” of a family dinner can be positively influenced if the smell of that dish that marked our childhood escapes subtly from the kitchen to the whole house (or perhaps, at dessert time, an essence of food used by the family).
