Creative Ideas to Consider When Renovating Your Galley Kitchen

Galley kitchens, distinguished by their narrow corridors and kitchen appliances on either side, are a familiar kitchen layout in Australia. While galley kitchens were somewhat functional in decades past, they are no longer relevant in this day and age where homeowners place a high value on space. Whether you're a minimalist or you have a particular interior décor theme in mind, space is always much needed. Therefore, if you love cooking or perhaps have a growing family and need to update your galley kitchen, here are a few creative ideas that you can consider when renovating it.

Take down a wall

One of the quickest way to introduce space into your galley kitchen is to take down a wall. However, if you are not able to take down the wall entirely, you should still consider removing just part of the wall so that more light can stream into the galley kitchen. For example, if your galley kitchen is adjacent to your living room, you can demolish part of the wall and form a curved entryway that allows you to move from the kitchen to the living room easily. Moreover, by knocking out a portion of the wall or the entire wall, you have an enhanced view of your interior from the kitchen that was once closed off. 

Change the placement of the cabinetry

While some galley kitchens have a large floor plan, most of these kitchens tend to be on the smaller side. Thus, the kitchen appears to be cramped with cabinetry, which makes an already tiny kitchen look even smaller than normal. A nifty solution to this problem is to change the cabinet placement. Rather than have them at eye level, you should move them higher up toward the ceiling. Making the most of the unused vertical space in your galley kitchen makes the room appear bigger since your line of sight will always be at the empty area where the cabinets used to be.

Make it curvaceous

Another brilliant and little-known trick when trying to make a small space look large is to introduce curves into the room. When deliberating on the interior design of a space, your main priority should be striking the right visual balance. Since galley kitchens are characterised by their linear design, the incorporation of curved elements will go a long way in balancing out the sharpness brought on by the corners and straight edges of the kitchen. A few of the features that you can consider for your galley kitchen include rounded countertop edges, curved furniture and so on.
