For parties, there can be multiple people in the kitchen and you are running into each other.

Very informative read. We have a u- shaped kitchen and love it! We have a 1100 square foot house and the kitchen is a great size. Love the flow in the kitchen, 4 different work spaces and lots of storage with lazy Susan’s in the corners! Love the lazy Susans, they are work horses not lazy at all!

I’ve been working in a U-shaped kitchen for 20 years. It’s nothing special, just the kitchen installed by the builder. I have to say, the longer I work in it the more I love it. It has ample counter space and a tight work triangle. This minimizes fatigue as I find myself spending more time in the kitchen creating yummy stuff. The only drawback is, it is truly a single cook work space.
