Maximize a galley kitchen with these 4 smart design tips. A typical galley kitchen has 2 walls lined with cabinetry and appliances and a walkway in the middle. Spacy appliances no more than 8 feet apart to maximize the function of the kitchen's work triangle. Place the refrigerator on the outside of the galley for easy access to drinks and snacks without interfering with the cook. Keep the center aisle as wide as possible. 4 to 6 feet is ideal to fit 2 cooks in the kitchen but 36 inches can work. Create a pass-through or completely open the kitchen to an adjoining room to keep it from feeling cramped. With these tips, you can create a functional and beautiful galley kitchen.
