A breakfast bar is a smart way to squeeze in informal seating in a small kitchen.

Two runs of kitchen units run parallel to one another, putting everything within easy reach.

The work zone is where will have your fridge-freeze as well as your kitchen sink, dishwasher and kitchen waste bin - these should all be as close together as possible so you can tip leftover food into the bin, rinse the plates then stack them in the dishwasher with minimum effort.
