What is a One-Wall Kitchen?

A one-wall kitchen is a type of kitchen layout where most of the units are positioned in a straight line next to a long, linear wall. Commonly found in smaller homes, One-Wall kitchens don’t require a lot of space and can reduce construction costs. And since the three workstations (fridge, sink, and cooktop) are all consolidated in one area, moving around the kitchen while doing daily chores won’t be too much of an issue.

How to Design a One-Wall Kitchen

Despite its simplistic appearance, One-Wall kitchens can be strategically designed to maximize the efficiency and use of space. The aesthetics and functionality of a one-wall kitchen depend on two factors: the quality and style of the appliances and the arrangement of all kitchen units adjacent to the wall.

Here are some of the best examples of the best One-Wall kitchen builds:

One-Wall Kitchen (The Common Build)

From left to right:

  • Cooktop with electric range
  • Laminate Countertop with a low-rise backsplash
  • Basic Double Bowl Sink with built-in dishwasher
  • Kitchen Cabinets with a darker wood tone
  • Integrated Refrigerator

This One-Wall kitchen layout can be considered as the standard build for any type of kitchen suffering from lack of space. The appliances are all positioned to make cooking meals faster and more efficient. Upgrading the appearance of the common build can be accomplished by using a vinyl flooring sheet or an expensive ceramic tile.

One-Wall Kitchen (The Storage Build)

From left to right:

  • A Tall Pantry Cabinet
  • Oven or Microwave
  • A Triple-Bowl Sink System
  • Quartz Countertops with Backsplash and Dishwasher Drawers
  • Integrated Refrigerator with Upper Cabinets near the ceiling

A more complicated build for One-Wall kitchens, this particular arrangement of kitchen units is made to address the lack of kitchen storage by taking advantage of every available space. In addition to the existing layout next to the wall, the storage build also requires the installation of a separate kitchen island with a set of chairs that will serve as the dining area.

One-Wall Kitchen (The Affordable Build)

From left to right:

  • A Door-Mount Spice Rack
  • Cooktop with Microwave and Range Hood
  • A small set of Cupboard with drawers
  • Single bowl sink
  • Laminate Countertop with Backsplash

The trick for this One-Wall kitchen build to work is to install a smaller kitchen countertop to significantly cut down the cost. You also don’t need to buy new kitchen appliances for this build as using your old units is enough. To add a bit of detail, you can have your kitchen table act as the kitchen island that can be used both for dining and providing an additional surface for preparing meals.
