Some kitchens lack space. In these cases, careful planning is key to maximise the kitchen. Galley kitchens are often one such design that requires careful storage and planning.

A galley kitchen often refers to a long, narrow kitchen that has counters on either side of a central walkway. It is typically found in many restaurants and although space is often limited, the best use of each area of the kitchen is encouraged.

Here are a few tips to creating a great galley kitchen:

In a small kitchen, it’s crucial to make use of spaces you can’t reach. A top tip would be to organize your small galley kitchen with added shelving that reaches up nice and high, and then to use a step stool that’s easy to store or doesn’t take up much space. This will certainly give you better use of your space.

Invest in open shelving so that everything is in clear sight. It makes it simpler to spot what you have and where it is, and visually expands the space. Open shelves has a great way of helping a smaller space feel bigger than it is.

Where you place your sink matters! If you’re involved in the design stages of your galley kitchen, it may be best to place the sink at the end of the narrow space. This will help to free up counter space needed for preparation. According to the professionals, prep space is the most coveted space in a galley kitchen where everything’s stacked next to each other.
