Lucette Gallois. Kitchen Decorating. April 04th , 2017.
Galley kitchens take their inspiration from the small, utilitarian kitchens found on ships and aircraft. Generally speaking, these kitchens feature two walls, with a narrow passageway located between them. In a traditional galley kitchen, the passageway measures anywhere from 4 to 6 feet wide, although larger galley kitchens may now expand that width and even feature kitchen islands for added seating, storage and food preparation space.
From stripes to checkered floors, there are many ways to update a space with paint and create a room that you, your family and even guests will never want to leave. Stripes—Stripes are all the rage these days, and taking the time to add some to your kitchen walls will immediately make it look ultra cool. Painting stripes can be a long and tedious process, but the results are well worth the extra effort.
One of the first things to consider when planning to decorate a galley kitchen is the color scheme. Because they tend to be slim, small spaces, galley kitchens occasionally run the risk of appearing dark and cramped. So lightening up the space with the use of light and bright colors can be a great start. Consider using whites, creams or light yellows for walls and backsplashes; try whites or light, natural woods for cabinets.
Color plays an important role in decorating the kitchen, especially if you bathe the room in a flattering tone-on-tone palette that gives the impression of spaciousness. For a bold and unexpected design touch, not to mention a departure from play-it-safe white, consider painting an accent wall in a vibrant hue. An attention-grabbing wall adds depth and style, and it will even highlight architectural elements particular to your room.
