On the surface, galley kitchens may seem less desirable than other kitchen layouts. For small spaces with more length than width, though, a galley kitchen is exactly what you need! Not only will the parallel counters fit most small areas, if you’ve planned it out correctly you’ll have easy access to the work triangle (sink to fridge to cooktop). If you’re redoing a galley kitchen or hoping to do an easy facelift, these tips are for you!
One of the best parts of having a galley kitchen is that because it is smaller than other kitchen layouts, your budget will go further leaving you more money to spend on fixtures or appliances.

Keep all your features consistent. Whatever finish you use on your sink, try using it with your light fixtures and cabinet knobs or handles to create a more cohesive look.
To make your room feel bigger, think about using a monochromatic color scheme.
To make your galley kitchen feel cleaner and more spacious, keep your galley kitchen focused on food prep and, if possible, use adjacent spaces for dining.
