The plan of the kitchen affects its functionality and comfort. Today we take a look at 35 models of fitted kitchens and explore the benefits of these spaces.

Fitted kitchen model and linear kitchen plan
The linear kitchen is organized around dividing the interior space into two parts. This is a suitable option for small spaces and for airtight rooms. Also known as an I-shaped kitchen or a long kitchen, it seeks to mobilize all of the space available on the walls to compensate for the lack of space in the room.

This kind of kitchen can also be organized around a single wall, especially in too cramped interiors where the use of two countertops installed parallel to each other will not be practical. Modern linear kitchens are often painted in light colors: this is a nice way to make this room in the house brighter, in case the windows are placed in a corner of the room..

The main advantage of a long kitchen is that all equipment and work tools are concentrated in a small area. Depending on the size of the room, you can use a few tips that can make the kitchen more welcoming. So, for example, a tight space, with furniture on both sides, can do without high storage. If you want to arrange a dining table in such an interior, use empty corners of the interior.
