What is a galley kitchen?
A galley kitchen is generally a long and narrow kitchen that has cupboards lining each wall, leaving a walkway in the centre of the room. This type of kitchen is often associated with period properties, and it can be a very practical space for cooking, as all of the items are within easy reach. But why should you choose high gloss cabinets for a galley kitchen?
What are the benefits of high gloss cabinets for galley kitchens?
There are a number of benefits and advantages to high gloss cabinets in galley kitchens. These include:
- Increasing the sense of space- in a galley kitchen with not a lot of light, the space can feel quite small and cramped. This is especially true if you use dark colours for cabinets, worktops or flooring. But with a high gloss finish, you can create the visual illusion of an increase in space, making your kitchen feel wider and more roomy.
- Increasing the amount of light- the amount of light in a kitchen is a practical as well as visual concern. For any type of food preparation or cooking, a good level of light can be crucial to ensuring that your meals are prepared safely and hygienically. While from a simple aesthetic point of view, a kitchen with a good level of light will be more welcoming, and more visually appealing than a dark, dingy kitchen space. High gloss cabinets can reflect whatever light there is in your kitchen, and make the space brighter and more practical.
- Easier to clean- high gloss cabinets are easier to clean than other types of kitchen cabinet, thanks to the sleek, shiny, and smooth surface, and the stain resistant surface too. This means any dirt, finger marks, or spills can simply be wiped off.
