Martina Cherine. Kitchen. July 05th , 2017.
Galley-Shaped Kitchen - this type of kitchen design is more common in apartments or in homes where space is limited -- it is often called the corridor style. The kitchen cabinets and the appliances can be located on opposite walls for better work flow -- place the range or cooktop on one side of the kitchen along one wall and the refrigerator and sink on the opposite wall.
A kitchen is unlike any other room in the house. While other rooms change to reflect changes in lifestyle - new couch, new lamps, new curtains -- the kitchen grows with its owner, changes little, and brings a history with it. While I started out thirty years ago with a set of borrowed pots and pans and a mismatched set of yard sale cutlery, I have accumulated so much more, both voluntarily and by accident.
If you your kitchen is big enough, an island is fabulous to have. Islands serve many functions. You can prepare food on it, and it is especially convenient if your stove is in the island itself. If the island is big enough, you can eat at it too. A seating island is a great place for guests to get a chance to talk with the cook while he or she is preparing the mail and of course, an island will give you more cupboard space, something that is always at a premium in any kitchen!
Single-Wall Kitchen - if you do not have much space, you may only be able to have an I-shaped kitchen. No problem. Just be sure the sink is placed between the refrigerator and the stove. Locate the refrigerator so that the refrigerator door opens away from the kitchen sink. This is a very common arrangement for small kitchens in narrow spaces.
