A Galley Kitchen Design That Resembles A Sunny Summer Walk

A common question that often pops up when you have a galley kitchen is where do you put a refrigerator? Let us make this a simple task and give you the answer you have been waiting for. In a parallel kitchen layout, the refrigerator must be kept towards the end of the passage where there is free space, preferably where the kitchen counter ends. This galley kitchen is designed with the use of lacquered glass in a bright shade of yellow for the bottom cabinets and drawers and a white for overhead cabinets.

Let’s Take A Walk Back In Time

This galley kitchen idea goes back to the ’90s, and a question that many of you will have in your mind is how do you arrange a galley kitchen. A galley kitchen, as you know, comes with a passage so it is important to ensure there is sufficient space to walk between the two walls. Don’t add unnecessary seating or furniture or decor as they can be a hurdle to your walking space. Try and keep the cabinets to the wall. Another thing to keep in mind is to make sure the stove and the sink are on the same side of the kitchen.
