25 Practical Galley Kitchen Decor Ideas
A galley kitchen, also sometimes called a corridor kitchen or a parallel kitchen, is characterized by a layout that features two parallel walls with a walkway between them. The traditional galley kitchen layout is usually narrow with the cleaning fixtures on one wall and cooking appliances on the other. In a custom layout, you can choose where everything goes as what really identifies a galley kitchen is that it has a walkway between two parallel walls with an entrance on either end.
The setup and layout of a galley kitchen are specifically built to be functional and efficient. Everything someone needs to cook is on one side of the kitchen and is within reach. There’s no need to run all over the kitchen just to prep a meal. The two entrances and middle walkway also make a galley kitchen easily accessible from multiple points. With two walls that each feature a counter, there is plenty of work space available in a galley kitchen. Someone using the kitchen can easily move from one work center to another as needed.

If you have a smaller kitchen, spaces like your living room, bedroom, or dining room typically are larger. Galley kitchens also often feature specialized storage options that keep a sleek streamlined appearance. And, even if they’re small, a galley kitchen that’s decorated and painted just right can trick the eye into thinking there’s extra space.
The number-one con of many galley kitchens is that they’re tight on storage and lack the square footage and counter space of other kitchen types. This also can make it difficult to provide enough overall lighting in the space, especially if it’s built with a closed concept design. If you have quite a few people in your household or spend a lot of time cooking and baking, smaller quarters may not be your best fit.
