This white, contemporary galley kitchen is compact, but designed for maximum style and function. While undertaking a total remodel, the client insisted on keeping the kitchen's existing footprint because it was inherit to the character of the house. To open it up, the design team removed a partition between the kitchen and laundry area. A mix of walnut and white cabinets, along with a wall of floating shelves, keeps the space young and current.
Though located in a tight space, this galley kitchen is highly effective; space is maximized with high cabinets and multiple drawers. The all-white color scheme and bright windows provide a sense of openness, and the cabinet-front refrigerator seamlessly blends with the rest of the cabinets. Honed black granite countertops and a matching stove backsplash provide contrast within the space.
Fumed oak floors in a striking chevron pattern steal the show in this transitional kitchen. Lime-washed oak cabinets with a bluish black stain provide contrast against the light floors for a visually appealing design.
Cool gray countertops and a breakfast bar flank the existing checkerboard floor in this galley kitchen. The small space feels large with a light color scheme grounded by a navy blue wall, as seen on HGTV's Brother Vs. Brother.
Storage isn't a problem in this kitchen. Glass-front upper cabinets, open shelving and a full-size pantry opposite the Sub-Zero fridge offer style and storage. Contemporary track lighting against a paneled ceiling draw the eye upward in the narrow space.
One of the easiest ways to give your cabinets a makeover is simply by switching out your hardware. “People say they add the jewelry when they add the hardware,” says designer Judith Wright Sentz of Judith Wright Design in Seattle, a 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Design Competition winner. “We took special care to add really pretty hardware.”
To keep the family organized, the home's galley kitchen has plenty of cabinet storage and counter space to accommodate this large family's needs. To the left of the space, a pantry adds storage, while to the right of the space, a refrigerator sits inconspicuously off to the side.
Bold, yellow contemporary cabinets and stainless steel stove appliance juxtapose nicely with the original pine flooring in this modern kitchen. The removal of a wall between the kitchen and dining room provides for a bigger spot to entertain.
