Galley Kitchen - A Layout Powerhouse

Galley kitchens include counters that run parrallel (and can include an island). They are popular in apartments because they work well in a small footprint. However, just because they are associated with apartments, doesn't mean they have to be low on style.


  • No odd shaped and difficult to reach corner cabinets
  • Can fit into a smaller footprint
  • Efficient with a lot of counter space
  • Makes planning the "work triangle" easy. 


  • Not as great with multiple cooks
  • Doesn't convey an open floor plan
