Galley Kitchen Ideas

Galley kitchen ideas are made up of two parallel runs of equipment that form a central working corridor. The galley works well in all types of kitchens and is a popular choice among professional chefs since it improves cooking efficiency and safety. Galley designs are perfect for small kitchens because they maximize space by cramming in a ton of storage and work space, just like the small galley on ships for which the layout is named.

A double run of units is the best design for a galley kitchen since it provides the most storage and workspace. Whether the area isn’t quite wide enough for a double run, see if a single run down one wall and a narrower workstation along the other could fit, giving the impression that the area is wider and providing more workspace. You might also include a dining room in your galley kitchen space. A galley kitchen’s obvious flaw is that, because of its small size, it frequently cannot accommodate a table. To avoid having an open-plan kitchen/diner, it would be viable to create a breakfast bar section in a long galley kitchen.

Galley Kitchen Layout

Typically, a galley layout is an enclosed area. There are two preferred layouts. The first arrangement is symmetrical. This typically means that the runs’ lengths and the placement of the units on each side should be as similar as possible. Asymmetry characterizes the second arrangement. Instead, you might choose an asymmetrical arrangement by employing different strategies. One involves placing base and wall units on one side of the room and tall cabinets or a bank of appliances on the other. If, however, you have an open-plan room, you might go for a combination of tall and wall units along one side and a single line of base units on the other.

Small kitchens can be drastically improved by lighting, both in terms of appearance and usability.

Your countertops, cabinets, and accessories will all look much better with the greatest kitchen lighting. In galley kitchens, the impacts are even more pronounced.

A correct galley kitchen lighting can make a space more open and welcoming by using the ideal combination of ambient, accent, and task lighting. To provide sufficient ambient light and eliminate shadows in the corners, use ceiling lights the entire length of the kitchen. Both track lighting and a row of pendant lights are suitable choices. Also, accent lighting will give style to your small kitchen. The ceiling appears taller and has more visual interest thanks to rope lighting around the tops of the wall cabinets. Use accent lighting to call attention to the kitchen’s appealing aspects and to give the room a sense of depth.
