The kitchen is one of the few rooms in any house that's dedicated to a productive task, that of cooking, rather than rest and relaxation. As such, when you hit the point where you're willing to dedicate money to remodeling your kitchen, you may want to give some serious thought to a major remodel of your kitchen floor plan. There are different variations of kitchen floor plans to remodel your kitchen into, and each has advantages, and disadvantages that will differ based on your home and your needs.
Best when you have a lot of space in your kitchen, the U-shape is one you can remodel your kitchen to if you have a lot of space. The U-shape kitchen area is square-shaped, with one side of that square providing an opening into the rest of the house. Traditionally, the three major workstations of the kitchen, the sink, stove, and fridge, are laid out with one on each side of the U-shape. Because the kitchen space is enclosed on three sides and traffic passes by the fourth, this is ideal for cooks who want little foot traffic to interrupt.
A variation on the U-shape kitchen places an island in the center of the kitchen, which can add to the counter space as well as provide a spot to place a workstation, often a range of some sort. One drawback if you remodel your kitchen floor plan to include the island is that if you place two workstations, the fridge and stove for instance, on opposite sides of the island, you have to walk all the way around to get from one workspace to the other.

The L-shape is similar to the U-shape, but with one side missing. It's more space efficient than the U-shape and better suited for when you need some of that kitchen space for something else. For instance, if you use this kitchen floor plan when you remodel, you can place your work areas on in two corners of the kitchen and still have room to use part of the kitchen for a breakfast nook. Of course, counter space is more limited with this floor plan and if the two workstations that share side of the kitchen are placed too close together, you'll end up with a narrow strip of counter that's useless as work space.

For efficiency or for those with little room to do much with their kitchen, you should choose a galley kitchen floor plan to remodel to. The main feature in this type of kitchen is two long parallel walls that make up most of the kitchen, with all counters and workspaces on opposite sides. Galley kitchens are great if you want all your tools within an arm's reach, but not great if you want more than one person n your kitchen at once. As you can see, though, each kitchen floor plan you could remodel to use has its own advantages and disadvantages. Which one is right for your space is up to you.
