Contemporary kitchen design maximizing small space


Galley kitchen designs are space-saving, functional, and modern. Two parallel walls with units separated by a passage define a galley kitchen design. The layout is perfect for small spaces. The galley style creates efficient kitchen interiors for cooking and meal preparation since these kitchen designs offer lots of storage and work surfaces.

Galley kitchen designs are popular. Often the kitchen interior can expand by adding a small sitting area at the end of the passage or a kitchen island between two unit runs. A contemporary galley kitchen may lead to a small dining area or a decorated wall at the end of the passage. The Lushome collection of galley kitchens brings visual inspiration for home design and renovation projects.

Contemporary galley kitchens evolved and can combine two popular layouts, part galley, part one wall with a small L-shape addition. A modern kitchen interior can feature a galley area on one side and creatively maximize the available small space on another side. Galley kitchen designs feature the sink in front of a window, but the traditional layout can flip to another side with the oven area.
