Built-in Organization: In a narrow kitchen, it's very important to have a place for everything and to keep everything in its place. Organize your kitchen into stations, making one side exclusively for food preparation, with a cooktop, stove, and fridge, and the other side for clean up, with the sink, dishwasher, and dish storage. Many galley kitchens do not include ample space for a table and chairs. Instead, a great kitchen renovation project is a built-in banquette, which saves space and provides additional storage inside the benches. Rather than use your limited counter space to store small appliances, consider installing appliance garages during your kitchen renovation.
Let There be Light: If the room feels small, see what you can do to increase natural light and make better use of artificial light. In other words, layer your lighting. For instance, cabinet-top lights that point to the ceiling can create a nice ambiance and make the ceiling feel higher. Light colors in the floor, cabinets, or countertops can also create a sense of space. Mirrored back splashes will reflect light and glass-fronted cabinets can also make the room look more spacious.
Downsize your Appliances: By scaling down your stove, fridge, and even microwave, you can free up valuable counter and cabinet space. Consider buying a combination cooktop and oven; wall ovens can take up needed counter space. Many newer refrigerator models are available in a slimmer counter-deep style. In a galley kitchen, saving space, even in small ways, leads to a better workflow.
In fact, this need for user-friendliness in appliances is what drives today's movement for smart, interconnected appliances. Fridges that order food for you, cooking appliances that can be controlled over the Internet, and integrated dinner tables that count calories and plan menus are just some of the things to come. Most importantly, new appliances will be more silent, made from recycled materials, and be more energy-efficient than ever before. The focus of future kitchen design will be creating the connected home, a house where the kitchen is connected to everything in the home and to the people through their smart phones and other network devices. This is already happening and many modern kitchens are already fully functional on the Internet.
Whenever you design your brand new kitchen or planning to remodel your kitchen, you can use a number of inexpensive home design tools that you may find available in your area, perhaps ask from a reputable designer of kitchens in your town can be a great option. Check your local computer store as these programs are also available in these places and they can be downloaded, too. With the aid of kitchen design software, it is so easy for any homeowner to create visuals of their dream kitchen. With the advancements in technology, it is now possible for anyone to carry out plans and details that normally, only architects can do.
