Living Large in a Galley Kitchen

While kitchen makeovers often feature expansive kitchens with ample countertop space and  large pantries, many of us have kitchens that are modest in size.  

But a smaller kitchen doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style — you can still take  advantage of the latest kitchen design trends — while optimizing your kitchen space with a  design that feels spacious and works for your lifestyle. 

Our kitchen design team tackles every project with fresh eyes, finding ways to customize your  space to your style and budget. You share your style and design goals, we’ll do all the work so  that you’ll love your kitchen for life.

When we first saw our Winnetka client’s galley kitchen, the dated cabinets made the space feel  dark and cramped. Storage in the small 1950’s cabinets that were mounted below a soffit was  insufficient for modern living. And a double wall oven might have been popular 30 years ago,  but the doorway location of the appliances made it tricky to navigate.

Our certified kitchen designer worked closely with this North Shore family to choose shaker style cabinets that are both on trend, yet classic — a style that fit with the rest of their home.  

The custom cabinets were extended to the kitchen ceiling, maximizing space in a small kitchen  and contrasting nicely with refinished hardwood floors stained a darker chestnut brown.

Gorgeous quartz countertops partnered with white subway tiles keep the kitchen fresh and  stylish.

While the sink remained centered under the window, a full range replaced the double oven  creating a work triangle that also maximized cabinet space and created a spacious entry from  the dining room to kitchen.

The end result? A gorgeous kitchen where this family of four can create memories and love  their kitchen for life.
