Today I’m so excited to share with you the final reveal of our kitchen renovation! I think you will agree this is a pretty mind-blowing transformation and we did it without removing a single kitchen cabinet. Not sure what layout to choose? READ Kitchen layouts – everything you need to know 1. Keep it streamlined. Sleek modern units work well in a galley kitchen layout, as the run of glossy cabinets create the optical illusion of more space. 3. Put tall cabinets on one wall. If you’re designing a galley kitchen as described above, it’s preferable to go for a wall length of at least 12 feet so the sink and cooktop can be placed far. These galley kitchen designs feature a variety of different kitchen styles such as traditional, contemporary, and modern. Since a galley kitchen often has a narrow space between two walls, they can be efficient for food preparation and cooking.
