When designing a galley kitchen, choose cabinets with simple lines. They will help keep the small space from looking cluttered. Adding cabinets with glass front doors keeps the area from becoming too dark. With the addition of the recessed ceiling lights for ambient lighting, the cabinets become the focal point of the small space. Adding stainless steel appliances to match the stainless steel cabinets lends a modern feel to this small space. Placing the sink in the center of the counter creates a simple and efficient workflow for any cook. Placing the appliances and counters along one wall opens the space up into the adjoining room.
