Large kitchen area allows you to place the refrigerator on one side with a linear kitchen.
Placing furniture with appliances in rows along parallel walls is appropriate only in wide spaces. If the kitchen is already 2.5 meters, the passage will be too narrow.

Two-row kitchen is perfect for a large kitchen area
To avoid cluttering the space due to a two-row layout, you need to correctly position the most important points of the kitchen - sink, stove and refrigerator. A stove with a sink is better placed on one side, and a refrigerator and cabinets with small appliances on the other. The rows can be different in length, it is more convenient to place the dining area next to the shortest one.
