Keep in mind that the first item in considering your layout options is the amount of space that you have for your kitchen and if you have flexibility to remove walls or move walls.

Let's take a look at your options:

U-Shaped Kitchen

If you have the space the U-Shaped kitchen is very popular.  It offers counters and workspace on thre walls and makes it easy to add an island.  There is space for cooking, preparation areas and ample storage space.  A great layout for the homeowner that loves to spend time in the kitchen and sees that space as the center of their home activity.

L-Shaped Kitchen

The L-Shaped kitchen is using two walls, thus creating the letter L. This options is usually selected because the kitchen space is small or it works will for a person who lives alone.  It does create a private cooking space and does not really give any social space.

Galley Kitchen

The Galley Kitchen design has not been a popular design for a while, it does give a bit of a closed in feel.  But there are some advantages in this design if is the space that you have available.  The two-walled design is great for small storage space, with little movement to get items needed for meal prep.  It does give a flow space between rooms that is easy.

Island Kitchen

This is the most popular style of kitchen layout at this time.  It take the best of the above layouts and gives more social space.  The island becomes a great focal point and for smaller kitchens it is a great added space for preparation or an alternative for dining area.

Peninsula Kitchen

With  Peninsula kitchen the island is connected to the rest of the kitchen.  Creating a type of horseshoe shape.  It is a good compromise to kitchen that doesn't have space for an island in their floor plan.
