Galley kitchens are typically intimate, but that doesn't mean they have to be tiny. At 9x19-feet, this galley is long on space, but it maintains the style's inherent efficiency.
The sink, dishwasher, and cooktop line the exterior wall, while the refrigerator, wall ovens, and microwave occupy the opposite wall. Windows above both the sink and the cooktop treat the cook to natural light and pleasant scenery.
