Double-L Kitchen Design Plan

A highly evolved kitchen design layout, the double-L allows for two workstations.

The smaller "L" has a cooktop (but not an oven) and a second sink. The major cooking operations are focused on this area, while food prep goes on in the larger of the "L" spaces.

This larger "L" also has tons of open counter space because the cooktop has been moved away.

Note that not much space is gained for cabinets: the smaller "L" has only a short run along the wall for cabinets (though cabinets can be hung off the ceiling above the cooktop, if desired).
