Galley Kitchen Design Layout
Galley kitchens use their space efficiently – the less walking the better for a busy chef! With two walls alongside the walkway, a good tip is to utilise the vertical space to maximum effect with cabinetry and storage space at head height.
The layout of a galley kitchen is just as important as the size of it. You will need to determine what appliances you’ll need in your kitchen and where they will go. An added benefit of having your appliances and work spaces nearby is that you will have a compact working area when you’re preparing meals. Our favourite tip for galley kitchens is to include an induction cooktop sitting flush with the benchtop to make the space appear larger.
The galley kitchen layout also focuses on the kitchen ‘golden triangle’, keeping your cooking, cleaning and refrigeration areas separate. Also try and keep your galley kitchen as symmetrical as possible. Cabinetry and appliances mirroring each side offers you a uniform and contemporary look.
