It involves the placement of cabinets, counters, appliances, and sink. The most common kitchen layouts are the one-wall kitchen, the galley kitchen, the U-shaped kitchen, the G-shaped kitchen, and the L-shaped kitchen. Here’s a quick overview of each layout, and what the pros and cons are to each one: One Wall Kitchen This layout is best used for a small house. It works by keeping all of the counters, cabinets, appliances, and sink on one wall, all within easy reach.

Tips for Designing the Right Kitchen for Your Home

Trying to figure out exactly how much kitchen you need? It is sometimes harder than you might think to find the perfect balance of your dream kitchen versus what’s actually practical and affordable. Here are a few tips that might help you in your decision making process: Keep the neighborhood in mind.

How to Replace a Broken Tile in Your Kitchen

Many people enjoy having ceramic tile floors in their kitchen because they are extremely durable and low maintenance. However, accidents do occasionally happen, and if you, for example, were to drop a cast-iron pot on the ground, you might find yourself having to replace a broken tile or a chipped tile.
