Another idea for a small kitchen layout is to consider exposed cabinetry. The open shelving establishes an airy feel to the room. Further this goal of creating the idea of roominess in your galley kitchen design by slapping a fresh coat of white or light-colored paint on the walls and cabinets. The uniformity of monochromatic colors creates the impression of spaciousness in a tight space. Tying your small kitchen‘s style to that of the adjoining room, whether by flooring, cabinetry, or color, is another tip for making the compact space appear larger through a sense of unity.
One of the first things you‘ll need to consider for your open kitchen is how many walls you want to keep standing in the space. If any of the walls are load-bearing, your decision may be made for you (you should probably keep those). But if you‘re relatively free and clear to take down any internal walls, you‘ll have an opportunity to keep as few as just one. Single-wall open kitchens are not uncommon, and they create the most open feel of any design—but you‘ll sacrifice a bit of storage to implement a one-walled open kitchen design.
First, eliminate the extras. Exchange pendant lights for recessed lighting and swap space-hogging appliances for models that can be tucked in drawers. Secondly, make a place for everything and put everything in its place. To this end, consider a pullout pantry or extend a windowsill for an extra storage perch. So that your tiny kitchen layout works double-duty, install a retractable eat-in peninsula that doubles as counter/dining space. Opt for chairs that also serve as seating in the living room. Every culinary headquarters needs a space for dining. Whether you have an island or a peninsula, utilize this surface in your small kitchen design for cooking prep, dining and as a buffet for entertaining. Bringing in an island on casters provides a mobile dining space when you need, it and it can be rolled away when you don‘t. Another idea for designing an eat-in space in your small kitchen is to install a built-in booth to accommodate the tight space. With a thoughtful design, you can also use the space underneath the seating for extra kitchen storage.
It‘s easy to enjoy the functional aspects of a small, efficient galley kitchen. Learning how to decorate a galley kitchen can ensure that the kitchen space you spend time in with friends, family and guests will be both functional and attractive.
