The L-shaped arrangement of the furniture optimizes space and movements when it is no longer a simple extension of the worktop, but an extension of the entire kitchen.
A distribution of stove, sink and oven over two sides can allow several people to stay in the kitchen at the same time, by diminishing the overlap of paths.
In most cases, this composition can be achieved with the furniture aligned along two adjacent walls.
In other cases, however, the element that forms the L is the table, which in this manner allows you to maximize space, especially if the kitchen is housed in a small environment.
"Open space", or rather rooms no longer closed and defined, have a leading role in the modern design of furniture: kitchens, in this way, become open and most of all central places, to welcome guests and chat to them.
The L-shaped arrangement implements this concept because it becomes an opportunity for the cook to interface with the people present during and after preparing meals.
It represents the ideal compromise between separation and union: it protects the private dimension of the kitchen and at the same time transforms it into a place for socializing and meeting.
In a case of a composition with snack counter, what happens is when someone is working in the operational area (whether sink or hob) they no longer face backwards but find themselves face to face with people on the other side, comfortably seating on stools.
