In this edition of homify, we tackle an obscure kitchen design… the L-shape. For many, this kitchen is the solution to their space problems especially in a small home or open plan set up, but these 15 fantastic kitchens by our team of interior designers will get you thinking about that long overdue kitchen revamp again and with so many colours, materials and textures to choose from, there really is no excuse.

1. Small and simple

This kitchen idea may be compact, but it allows for more than enough storage, workspace and even a contemporary cooking area. The darker wooden cabinets are elegant and trendy too.

2. Light and sleek

The L-shape structure allows for linear space and storage for everything from groceries to cutlery, crockery and even utensils.

3. Less is more
