A U-shaped kitchen layout is a continuous kitchen layout in which cabinetry and fixtures are located along three adjacent walls in a U-shape arrangement. U-shaped kitchen layouts are versatile in lengths and depths, and they frequently include central island counters for additional workspace and table surfaces. Minimum main width of 5' (1.53 m) is required for use, but it is recommended that this zone be expanded to between 6'-8' (1.8-2.4 m) to allow for adequate access and movement space for multiple people. U-Shape Kitchens come in widths ranging from 9' to 12' (2.7-3.7 m) and depths that can be customized. U-shaped kitchens should have a total area of about 107 ft2 (10 m2).
