Sleek Modern Galley Kitchen With Glossy Floor Tiles
High ceilings and glossy floor tiles make up this contemporary penthouse kitchen in Paradiso, Switzerland. The galley kitchen space offers views to the lush landscaping outside through the glass doors, with sleek high-end appliances inside and seating for two.
Designers wanted to create a bright, open space for the homeowners, but the second wall in the kitchen was load bearing, so instead of taking it out, they maximized the kitchen's functional space by adding shelves for storage and display space and lower cabinets for counter space. To keep the space bright, under cabinet lighting was added, as well as a row of pendant lights running down the middle of the space.
This elongated galley kitchen with a wood-crowned island relies on natural lighting to illuminate the workspace. Parallel to the dining and living areas, it's ideal for hosting a party or having a family dinner.
Around the corner, large cabinets and wood floors comprise the galley kitchen. To help the narrow space feel more airy and open, architect Lauren Rubin introduced large windows, recessed lighting and all-white furnishings.
Designer Tyler Karu added a bright paint stripe on the brick wall so that the exposed brick doesn't feel too overwhelming. The rustic mirror is from Portland Architectural Salvage, and he chose a marble subway tile from Home Depot for the backsplash.
The crisp, white galley kitchen in this Austin, TX, home features a sleek marble-topped island with maximum storage. The stacked oven and warming drawer is surrounded by white oak cabinetry that leads over to the gas range and hood.
This warm-colored kitchen, dominated by wood-on-wood textures follows the same rules of space management that work so well in Kalyn’s office: smooth surfaces, simple colors and a very effective use of storage. Throw in a cool, white countertop and a marble backsplash for good measure, and the perfect kitchen can be as easy as 1-2-3.
Modern White and Light Gray Galley Kitchen Makeover
This kitchen makeover included new white Shaker cabinets and sleek, glossy white countertops. The designer removed the drop ceiling to open up the space and added a light gray and white backsplash for a splash of muted color. New stainless steel appliances and a brown ceramic tile floor finish off the overall look.
Modern Gray Galley Kitchen Is Sleek, Sophisticated
This 8-foot-wide modern kitchen hangs a turn into the adjacent dining room. To make it appear larger, the designers continue the horizontal lines down the long kitchen both in the kerf, or incised line, of the cabinets and the flooring. The cabinets reaching the ceiling draw the eye up as well.
