Galley Twist

This old galley-style kitchen interior renovation lacked proper organized storage – which promoted clutter and was closed to the dining area. The same general footprint was maintained but adding full height cabinets and relocating the fridge gave more counter and storage space. A clever use of lighter uppers combined with rift cut oak lowers adds light and warmth at the same time. A single French door provided space to move the fridge and set up a pantry wall. Wood look porcelain tile adds to the continuity of the look. The nook area was restricted by large baseboard heaters, a wide window sill and double doors – switching to floor heat, adding a counter area and reducing the door created a usable clean space. The slide in range blends in with the subtle glass tile detail and the mix of cabinet and wall colours. Removal of the wall to the dining room opens up the sink wall. This galley with a twist opens nicely in to the dining area and provides everything in a very organized layout. Well-placed lighting in this interior renovation ensures both a great ambiance and efficient work areas.
