A G-shaped kitchen is fairly similar to a U-shaped kitchen, but it's bigger and generally more practical. In fact, a fourth side is attached to one side of the U at a right angle, normally leaving a small opening through which people can enter and exit the kitchen. The G-shape kitchen is ideal for families who seek extra storage space, counter space, a breakfast bar or an entertaining area. G-shaped kitchens fit very well into kitchens attached to open-plan living areas, with their peninsular wall fronting onto living spaces.
