Galley kitchen design is actually one of the ideas mostly used for kitchen. It is mainly if you are intended to make the kitchen space look larger. If you are still wondering how galley kitchen looks like, well, it is mainly a kitchen where the cabinets and furniture are put on the edges. Therefore, it remains space in the middle to form something like a path. Sounds familiar? Of course, maybe many of you even apply it in your house.
It is not a big deal at all sure if your kitchen is big enough. Yes, it is because you may be able to apply any kind of interior design without any doubt, including the galley kitchen. But if the space in fact is small enough, it can be a problem sometimes. Well, if you need to overcome it, here are some ideas for you.
Removing the partition
If you think your kitchen and dining room should be separated, just remove such a thought then. In fact, it is much effective when your kitchen and dining room is in the same room. It is particularly if the space you have is small enough. To form the galley design, you can put some cabinets or kitchen island in the middle of room. It can be functioned also as the partition between the kitchen and dining area.
Choosing Small Cabinets
Cabinets are like a must in a good kitchen. It should also be some storages to keep many ingredients and stuff there. Even if you need to put so many things there, if your kitchen space is small enough, it doesn’t mean you should buy them which are quite big. In other words choose some which are quite small. Then, place them in series to form one or two rows. Remain space in the middle as a path where you can put your body while cooking.
Cabinets and Island at once
Many people may choose cabinets and kitchen island separately. It is mainly if they are interested in a kind of bar-like kitchen. That’s great of course. But it is not recommended for your small kitchen. As all you need to do is to save more space, make sure to choose kitchen furniture which is multifuctioned. For this case, having a kind of floor cabinet with countertop that can be used as island is the best choice.
It is certainly much more comfortable for anyone if the path in his or her galley kitchen is large enough. But if it is impossible, having the narrower one is not bad. Just make sure that you can still move more fexibly and comfortably there.
In general, minimalist interior design is much more appropriate for your small kitchen, including for your galley kitchen. Yes, less accents applied can just make the interior look less cramped as well. Another advantage is that minimalist style or you may call it as modern design is really popular and happening recently. The way of applying it is also quite easy. So, why don’t you try it?
