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.
If you‘re remodeling an existing kitchen, installing a new one or just looking to give your current kitchen a quick facelift, you‘ll want to explore the wide range of kitchen accessories and decorating ideas that can make any kitchen a more lively, welcoming and functional space.
One of the more striking benefits of a kitchen peninsula is its utility. Just like a kitchen island, a peninsula has many potential uses. It can be configured to add considerable extra storage via a system of cabinets, drawers and racks that can be used to keep cookware and other accessories organized. Peninsula countertops can add a great deal of surface area to your kitchen design, and they can be used for food preparation and dining. Peninsula countertops can also do double duty in terms of storage and decoration, providing a convenient location for containers and other storage elements while allowing you to keep your favorites on prominent display.
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.
