Kitchens That Maximise on Space, Storage and Light


Yes it is possible to make a galley kitchen feel brighter and more open. We’ve put together a collection of the best galley kitchens on Houzz, with tips and tricks for bringing in light, maximising storage and making your cook space feel bigger.

This is a simple cook space with white units and wooden worktops, but the glass splashback makes it altogether more special. The aquamarine colour complements the earthy tone of the wood, and connects with the bright chairs in the dining area beyond. The glass works well to reflect the light and creates a bright and airy feel in a relatively small space.

Coloured glass splashbacks are available from a number of stockists and come in a variety of shades – some companies will even colour match for you.

Make the most of every inch in your galley kitchen by building storage into the walls. Here, they’ve ditched wall cabinets and opted for recessed shelves to the left and all around the larder. The storage makes a feature of the back wall, drawing the eye along and elongating the space. The lack of wall units also helps to open up the room and make way for some useful pendant lighting.
