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.
Lastly, consider an artistic theme for your kitchen walls. Flora and fauna are common choices for kitchens, with fruits and vegetables or pastoral scenes populated with furred and feathered friends among the more popular choices.
The two-walled design of a galley kitchen maintains the traditional "work triangle" that‘s essential to any effective kitchen design—this refers to the triangle created by the stove, refrigerator and sink. If cooks can easily access all of these kitchen features, cooking will be much more efficient and enjoyable. Galley kitchens generally achieve this design by placing two components of the triangle on one wall of the kitchen, and the third component on the opposite wall.
A peninsula can be a great addition to just about any kitchen design, but it‘s particularly useful in smaller spaces where a freestanding kitchen island isn‘t feasible because it would take up too much floor space. Likewise, some homeowners with kitchens with three connected walls may want to explore taking out one wall to create a more open flow between the kitchen and dining room or kitchen and living room. Doing so can create a great opportunity to add a peninsula in the vacant space.
