Every successful kitchen design starts with the general layout of the space, which includes the general shape created by the arrangement of important appliances.

The galley kitchen layout typically consists of a broad corridor situated between two walls of cabinetry. In the traditional sense, the galley kitchen refers to small, close-quarter spaces created from necessity. The modern galley layout takes inspiration from traditional galley kitchens but incorporates more square footage and contemporary touches. The standard galley kitchen involves two work stations that face each other, perfect for homeowners that love to prepare meals together or with their children. The design can adhere to all sizes of homes, ranging from cozy to spacious.
If you’re designing a galley kitchen to maximize space in your Washington, D.C. home, there are several ways to make your kitchen look larger than it actually is. First, ensure that the flooring you choose runs lengthwise to the walls to make the kitchen appear longer. Second, choose your cabinetry carefully. Floor-to-ceiling cabinetry will create the illusion of more height, while matching appliance panels to the cabinetry scheme will help to establish a cleaner aesthetic.
One of the most important considerations for a galley kitchen is smart storage. Maximize the space with modern storage solutions like the Blind Corner Swing Out system that gives every pot and pan its own home. The experts at Signature Kitchens, Additions, and Baths can help you choose the best cabinetry for your aesthetic and your family’s needs.
