A U-shaped kitchen plan is a kitchen layout in which cabinetry and fixtures are placed along three adjacent walls. U-shaped kitchen plans are versatile and are frequently combined with a kitchen table or a central island. U-Shape Kitchens must have a minimum major clearance of 5' | 1.53 m, 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 should have an approximate area of 107 ft2 | 10 m2. The widths of typical U-Shape Kitchen layouts range from 9'-12' | 2.7-3.7 m, with depths varying as needed.
