Design tips for stylish galley kitchens

To create a stylish galley kitchen, you should pay careful consideration to the:

  • colours and cabinet choices
  • reflections and light
  • shapes and layout

Colours and cabinet choices

For a narrow galley kitchen, the colours you choose for your cabinets can have a big impact on the overall appearance and effect in the room. Try and choose light colours cabinets, especially for wall cabinets. This is because the top level of wall cabinets can make the space feel smaller, and dark. A light colour can mitigate this effect.

Reflections and light

For any small kitchen, in any shape, it is important to make sure that the room is light, and bright. Reflecting light around the room can help to provide a feeling of space, and openness. And in a small area, like a galley kitchen, this can be very important. Why not try increasing the natural light with windows or bi-fold doors? And use a glossy finish on tiles to help reflect this light around the room. Chrome finishings can also help.

Shapes and layout

Finally, it is important to remember that a stylish kitchen, also needs to be practical. And shapes and layout can really help to make sure that the kitchen becomes a usable space.
