Think outside the box. Even a long narrow space can be home to a U‐shaped kitchen: just fit one or two units at right angles at each end of your main bank of storage. This forms a very shallow U shape, but a U shape nonetheless and it’s a design that defines the practical kitchen area from the wider eating and entertaining area beyond. The play of hi‐gloss cabinet fronts and veneer carcases helps to further define this division.
Having a water connection right next to or as near as possible to the garden is very important. If you don't have one it might be worthwhile exploring getting a connection laid on. Climate is a major factor in helping you decide on the type of garden to have. It is best to grow those elements that are indigenous to your area, they will be easy to grow and replace.
Add interior windows. Does the kitchen in your narrow home plan feel cut off from the dining area? If so, you can cut out a section of the dividing wall to create the illusion of added space. Similarly, any space will seem larger if you add more light via interior windows. To keep rooms private, fill interior windows with glass blocks.
For ultimate efficiency, with everything at your fingertips choose an ultra practical U‐shape design. The U‐shaped kitchen is probably the most practical of kitchen layouts and can provide an additional run of potential storage or appliance space compared with a galley kitchen or L‐shaped kitchen. U‐shaped kitchens can work in large spaces, but even small kitchens can benefit from a U‐shaped design. Just be sure you have at least two metres of moving‐around space between the opposite banks of units.
