Indian homeowners love their kitchens and most homes focus on making these spaces as functional as possible. The easiest way to achieve functionality is to follow the golden triangle in the kitchen. The golden triangle implies that your sink, fridge and hob/stove should form an equidistant triangle. A kitchen layout that beautifully incorporates these rules is the L-shaped kitchen design. And what’s more, it doesn’t matter if it’s a big or small kitchen. An L-shape kitchen interior design can be made attractive and super functional. Here we have 20+ gorgeous L-shaped kitchen ideas for you to draw inspiration from! Take a look.

#1: Embrace Red for Your L-Shaped Kitchen Design
