The parallel layout is of high recommendation, and the island layout is the one you will usually find in most homes. It makes use of either the L shaped design or the straight-line layout, along with a separate island counter, that is not connected. This island can have multiple applications, from being a sink or an entertainment area, to simply more counter space.
The layout is ideal for open plan living and is suitable for most homes. It provides a contemporary and modern look and is perfect for the more spacious apartments.
