     Base Cabinets

    Not only is there a lot of wall space, but at the base of every part of this design, so you have a lot more storage with room for kitchen appliances such as under the counter fridge/freezers or even a dishwasher or the base could just be used instead of the walls units.

     More Counter Space

    With a g-shape design, you're able to have far more space for working in the kitchen. This beats a U shape because you have more surface area to work with.

     Open or Private Kitchen

    With this kind of design, you are able to cover all 4 walls. You can raise parts of the kitchen to close them off to make it more private or you can make it more open to have that feeling of space.
