A galley kitchen is more or less similar to a one-wall kitchen but with double the storage and counter space. This type of layout is considered to be the most efficient for cooking and that’s why a lot of restaurants adopt the style. A galley kitchen is long and narrow and has appliances and counters on either side.
How do you bring rustic to a rather modern kitchen? It’s all in the wood. Give your island a makeover by lining the corners in some beautiful rustic beams. The deep wood grain against your lighter cabinets will make a bigger impact than you think.
If you want a social kitchen, one that allows smooth interaction between people and that feels more open, perhaps the most popular kitchen layout of all is for you. We’re talking about the L-shaped kitchen. Part of the reason why this is such a popular layout is the fact that it’s very versatile and adaptable. It works great with open plan living and dining areas and it can also serve as an eat-in kitchen if you add a table with chairs or an island with seating.
There’s also such a thing as a G-shaped kitchen. It’s actually a different version of the U-shaped layout, one which features a peninsula attached to one side of the U. The peninsula partially encloses the kitchen so it’s important to make sure it’s not too long so you can easily get in and out. There’s absolutely no way you can add an island to this kitchen since you’d have to room to move around it and it would make everything very difficult and awkward.
